One of the early breed of US death metal acts, Autopsy formed in 1987 in San Francisco, & released 4 albums on Peaceville Records - beginning with the classic debut ?Severed Survival_ in 1989 - before disbanding in 1995, with members going on to form Abscess.
Autopsy triumphantly & officially returned from the grave after a 15 year hiatus with the 2010 EP, ?The Tomb Within_ ? delighting critics & fans alike. Autopsy also celebrated this long overdue return with 3 headlining festivals at Maryland Deathfest, PartySan & Hole in the Sky, featuring friend Dan Lilker (Brutal Truth, Nuclear Assault) on bass, where the band was met with a rapturous reception from older fans, as well as a new generation of rabid metalheads.
Autopsy entered Fantasy studios in February 2011 with Adam Munoz to record ?Macabre Eternal_, the long-awaited fifth album, with the original trio of Chris Reifert, Danny Coralles & Eric Cutler joined by Joe Trevisano of Abscess/Von fame on bass to pummel the senses with more uncompromising death & disease.
This release will be backed up with more festival appearances across Europe & the US in 2011.
Autopsy notably features legendary drummer Chris Reifert, who began his recording career with US metal greats, Death, before taking on the unusual duty of handling drums & vocals for Autopsy. Autopsy has influenced a whole generation of extreme metal bands, from Entombed & Dismember to Darkthrone & is among the biggest & most respected names in the genre's history.
?Macabre Eternal_ features artwork by renowned horror artist Wes Benscoter (Slayer, Mortician, Sinister).
