Very busy bro, we are breaking in a new drummer right now. We would like to welcome Jeff Malpezzi to the band and introduce him to everybody. We are writing for the new split with BruceXCampbell as well as a split with Tree of Woe(Jeffe from Catheters new band)
2.Little and fast bio about Aberrant.
Formed in 1999 by Chris (Porkchop) Cannell (formally of Catheter) and Todd Loftis(Code Anti Code) with the intention of writing the most extreme grindcore we could muster up!! The name Aberrant means deviation from the norm and that’s why we named this project that, because that’s exactly what we intended to do. We wrote a handful of songs and played a few shows that winter.. Unexpectedly Todd had to move out of state, so it was put on hold…
2001- Chris got the itch to start up the project again, so a friend Ezra introduced him to drummer Yancy (currently with Roskopp) with the intent to record some songs and put out a demo. Shortly after we obtained Mark ( Cornbread) Busy on second guitar and backing vocals, we recorded a three song demo and played a handful of shows.
2002-2004-Yancy met Alton (Forced Instinct) at a Napalm Death show and talked with him about doing vocals for Aberrant, he agreed and was the new vocalist for us starting that same year.That same year H murder (Catheter) came aboard on bass duties. We recorded the demo 7" and the split with the mighty Unholy Grave with this line up.
Soon after we parted ways with Mark, and Nick Sandoval (ex Eviserated Soul,current Its for a Cop) stepped up for second guitar duties.Then H murder left the band and Mark came back on bass for a bit and we rerecorded the bass for the Unholy Grave split and recorded the DHIBAC split. Javram Tilton(currently Space In Time) came aboard on bass. He was in the band for around 6 months or so and decided to move on. After that we decided no more bass, and we haven’t had one since. With this line up we recorded the Fistfuck split cd and the split 7" with NDS.
2005-2006-We parted ways with Yancy late this year. We recruited Dave Otero for drum duties on three songs for a 7" that was never released, until it came out on the Grindworks LP/CD. Yancy returned to play crush fest with us and that was the last how we played until 2010.
2007-2010- We were dormant through these years and Chris was out of state but we managed to still keep in touch and keep writing songs. We recruited JP (CTTTOAFF) on drums and began rehearsing again with Chris flying in as often as possible. We soon parted ways with Nick and decided to be a three piece band. We released Complete Grindworks 2010 this year.We played three shows and then we booked our Japanese tour. Unfortunately JP was unable to go, and he introduced us to Gordon (BSOK, Iron Horse). He filled in for the tour in Japan and after became our permanent drummer.
2011-2012-We toured Brazil and released a split LP wit DER, and a split 7" with Darge. We are currently writing new material for upcoming full length and a few splits.
Nov 2012- We have since parted ways with Gordon on drums and have recruited Jeff Malpezzi to man the skins!!
During these 13 years we have toured the mid west 3 times, many trips to New Mexico, toured Japan and Brazil.
Many things are in the works keep an eye out for new releases and tours around the globe.
