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 four 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.
