Autopsy decided to make an official comeback after working together on two songs for the special 20th anniversary edition of their debut album, Severed Survival, in late 2008. The band had originally decided to split before the release of their 4th album, Shitfun, in 1995.
The 12” vinyl edition of ‘The Tomb Within’ comes with a free poster of the stunning cover artwork, and is limited to just 1000 numbered copies. It can be pre-ordered at: http://www.burningshed.com/store/peaceville/product/261/2264/. The CD edition can be pre-ordered at: http://www.burningshed.com/store/peaceville/product/261/2265/, and will include a special limited postcard.
Autopsy emerged in 1987, and had an almost immediate impact on the global underground heavy metal scene. Frontman Chris Reifert was already known due to his work as drummer with Florida’s highly respected extreme metal combo, Death, along with Chuck Schuldiner. Autopsy’s debut album, Severed Survival, was unleashed in 1989 on Peaceville Records, and the band went on to become true legends in the death metal scene, recording four studio albums in total, before splitting up in the mid 90’s.
