Aborted Officially Welcome New Guitarist Harrison Patuto


Aborted have added guitarist Harrison Patuto (ex-Vale Of Pnath) as their new permanent guitarist. He replaces Mendel bij de Leij, who exited early last year. Welcoming Patuto via social media, Aborted commented:

“Up and atom! Faster than a shark, sharper than a scalpel and has more cats than your regular disgruntled cat lady, we have a permanent replacement for Mendel – ladies and gents, please welcome Harrison Patuto as the official 5th member of the band.

Harrison says: “It is with great pleasure that I announce my permanence within the band of Aborted. This past year has been a surplus of hard work and good times, as we performed a total of 82 shows together. There were big shoes to fill for me, but the dedication, effort, talent and kindness of the guys has made it all the more easy for me to feel at home. There are exciting things ahead, and I could not be more honoured to be a part of it.”
