Autopsy are “Waiting for the Screams”
Damn, son, Autopsy are gore metal defined. Their creepy, delirious approach to death metal has gross and menacing qualities to it that few other bands can capture; they don’t sound like someone being murdered so much as the dreams of a killer who is planning a murder. All of which is to say, they rule. Their classic material is great, their three most recent albums are great–this is a band living up to its legacy.
The band has released a new track, “Waiting for the Screams,” from their upcoming Skull Grinder LP, which is scheduled for vinyl release this upcoming Black Friday Record Store Day. And thankfully, the song has all the looming, monolithic brutality one wants from Autopsy — a lot of death, a bit of doom, a ton of horror. It’s blood soup for the death metal soul.
Check out the track below. Skull Grinder comes out November 27th, but the band is also releasing a limited-edition album called After The Cutting which includes that LP and huge career-spanning book by artist Dennis Dread. That comes out Friday, November 13th, so keep an eye out.
