Dutch Heavy Music Quiz 2015 – Aborted

We are reaching the end of the year, so it’s time to add the last 4 bands to the ‘Dutch Heavy Music Quiz 2015‘. The death metal/grindcore band Aborted (BE) is the seventh band playing the ‘Dutch Heavy Music Quiz 2015’. In the backstage tent at Graspop 2015, Anton asked the whole band about their knowledge of Dutch heavy music. They had to beat Exodus, Cavalara Conspiracy, Obituary, Godsmack, Coal Chamber and the monster score of Cradle Of Filth. Let’s see what this Belgian band knows about music from The Netherlands!
