Well then...after almost 4 years of a good-god-damn-time, we've decided to bring it to and end.

Me (meaning Ben) and my brother John have both been having our doubts about keeping it going, and neither of us knew about each other's doubts until recently, and we each had pretty much the same damn reasons for quitting, thus making it much easier to make the final decision.

It's not my main priority anymore, and to not give 100% to such a fucking force of a band would be doing the rest of my bandmates a huge disservice, to say the least. I know for a fact that as a band, we were on a whole other plane, and I don't care how much of an egotist that makes me look like, it's the fucking truth.

I've met countless awesome, awesome people through doing this. I've also met a lot of douche bags, but such is life.

We took this shit so much farther than I ever anticipated. Too many highlights, but the show at the Palindrome in Brooklyn comes to mind, and playing the Paradise main stage and getting the rock star treatment of free booze in the backroom at 17 years old was pretty great as well. I stood on the main stage at the Middle East and saw a bunch of people rocking out to my band at Doom and Grind Fest. We've played with Phobia, Bathtub Shitter, and fucking Circle of Dead Children, who are basically responsible for my being as far into metal as I was/am. These and a handful of other awesome national/international acts, without ever doing some lame-ass pay-to-play/ticket scalping bullshit.

Our goals for this band when we started were basically to play in Boston and get some shows with Kevorkian's Angels and Watchmaker (we were fanboys. Still are, to some extent....). That turned into Brian doing our artwork/logo and being one of our biggest supporters.

On top of all that, when we played our first show with Noosebomb, we were all wet in the pants to play a show with ex members of Grief and Disrupt, and now Jeff is a damn good friend and an awesome bandmate (or ex-bandmate).

So yeah. The original plan was to play the June 3rd show in Somerville, and book one last bash-of-a-show elsewhere, but it just isn't going to happen.

A million fucking thank yous to everyone who ever booked us on a show/let us crash/bought us beer/loaned us gear/reviewed a show/reviewed our cd's and so forth, and an extra extra gigantic thank you to everyone who ever came out and banged their collective fists and heads off.

Thank you to all our fellow Massholes (Watchmaker, Hirudinea, Dissector, Kevorkian's Angels, CWAF, Revocation, IWEIPH, etc. etc. etc.), and to Brian Livoti for all the bad-ass logos and artwork.

Thanks to these folk:

Mr. Joe McNamara, who, despite the last couple years of whatever bad blood between us, definitley played a big part in getting our name out there.

Aaron Pepelis of, also without whom, who knows where we'd have gone? You all should be licking this mans balls for doing what he does so consistently.

the Heidenrich family for putting up with the majorirty of the last 4 years of noise.

Thank you to Josh Staples for a year of bass playing and drunken, hash-induced hijinks (that's right...hijinks...).

Most of all, thank you to my brothers John Farley, John Heidenrich, Eric Braunschweiger, and Jeff Hayward, as we made one hell of a fucking band.

I'm sure I forgot a whole bunch of shit, but that's the gist of it.

- Ben/Abhorred

P.S. I have no idea at this point what's going to happen with the EP. For now it's still download-able from

So I'll never see you guys play live again? Not even one last time? Please?

If not, that's extremely fucking depressing.

I knew this was coming, but still it sucks so damn bad. You guys were the most intense band around here, in my opinion, and among the very top bands. The past few sets I saw of you, in Sept and Oct and then in Jan... it was downright unbelievable. The RttP benefit show was the best set from a local band I've ever seen.

RAOV.. Abhorred... who's next? The thrash gods are punishing Boston damn harshly lately.

Damn, fucking sucks! By far one of the greatest bands Mass has ever had. I raise my glass in memory of the good times and tonight I'll bang my head in honor of my brothers whom no long ride.

sucks to hear. the last time i saw you guys(Natick) you were amazing. i still miss those chopping block shows way back when.
so, are you gonna do standup now?

toggletoggle post by Anthny at May 22,2007 6:15pm
I know we'd be honored to play Abhorred's last show. If you guys can man up to play together one last time, we'll make it happen.

Yeah! I'd do anything to make a final Abhorred gig happen as well.

shitty. Although I only saw Abhorred maybe twice I really dug it. Figures I mention it now. I would attend a final gig.

we'll never get the chance to play with you like we've been trying to for the past 2 years, fucking some of the worst news I've heard in a long fucking time. I'm hoping that you guys at least continue thrashing is some other form down the road.

And yes one last fucking thrash tastic show is a must.

Wow this is sad news. That new cd was pretty sick sounding. Its funny i remember the first ever Coffin Birth show was with Abhorred and two other bands that broke up too.

Wicked lame. I agree you should do one final show. Imagine the mayhem and carnage that would ensue.

shitty news

Wow another one of the Masshole elite down, damn! You guys may have started out as Watchmaker "fanboys" but it was us that turned into fanboys of you. It was great to watch you guys grow into one of the most brutal bands in the area. I was also great to share the stage with you guys many times. That paradice show was fucking incredible! Anyway this is sad news but we are glad to call each and every one of you friends. Thrash on brothers!

When I first saw the title of this thread I thought it was about the old Abhorred from way back in the 90's.

Either way it still sucks to see another MA band break up, good luck with whatever you decide to do.

Man that's wicked lame. We were hoping to play a show again with you guys too.

Just play the Skybar show with us and Hirudinea and make that the last show. Go out with a BANG!
