CALIFORNIA – San Francisco Bay Area death metal legend, Autopsy, has completed recording its long-awaited fifth studio album, Macabre Eternal, due out May 31st on Peaceville Records. The band has announced that it will release a special vinyl edition of the forthcoming musical massacre before the CD and digital versions hit stores, available exclusively through the Peaceville web-store at: www.peaceville.com on May 16th.
Autopsy drummer/vocalist, Chris Reifert, states, “We’ve brewed up the sickest and heaviest material that our rotten souls could possibly spew forth, and we are confident that it’s our best stuff yet. The EP was a taste of what’s to come, but now it’s time for the full assault from beyond the grave.
“The album will contain no repeated EP tracks, no re-recorded old songs, no triggered trickery, and nothing less than the pure death metal brutality that Autopsy has always delivered.”
One of the early breed of US death metal acts, and most respected names in the genre, Autopsy formed in 1987 in San Francisco, and 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 and officially returned from the grave after a 15 year hiatus with the 2010 EP, ‘The Tomb Within’, delighting critics and fans alike.
Autopsy also celebrated this long overdue return with three headlining festivals at Maryland Deathfest, PartySan and Hole in the Sky, featuring friend, Dan Lilker (Brutal Truth, Nuclear Assault), on bass.
The band will play several 2011 festival dates in support of Macabre Eternal.
