CALIFORNIA – Legendary San Francisco Bay Area gore grind act, Autopsy, has stepped back into the mighty Fantasy Studios in Berkeley, CA to begin recording its first full-length album since 1995’s, Shitfun, entitled, Macabre Eternal. The forthcoming record will be released in early June 2011 on Peaceville Records.
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.”
He continues, “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.”
The band has confirmed “Always About To Die”, “Hand Of Darkness”, “Spill My Blood” and “Bludgeoned And Brained” as a few of the titles which will be included in this horrific creation.
Autopsy announced its permanent reunion in June 2010, and then released ‘The Tomb Within’ EP, the band’s first collection of newly recorded tracks in over a decade, in October. The EP was recorded at Fantasy Studios with Adam Munoz, and reunited the original trio of Chris Reifert, Danny Coralles, and Eric Cutler, joined on bass by Joe Trevisano (ex-Abscess).
The band will play several festival dates in 2011 leading up to the release of Macabre Eternal.
