Autopsy Announce Their First New Album Since 2014
Among classic death metal bands still making great music, Autopsy will always have a place near and dear to our lower intestines. There are plenty of good reasons for that, but what they mostly boil down to is that 2013’s The Headless Ritual and 2014’s Toruniquets, Hacksaws and Graves were so fucking incredible that it officially put the band high on our lists And now, eight years after those albums, Autopsy have announced their return — and it looks like it’s going to be rad.
Autopsy’s new album will be titled Morbidity Triumphant, and drops September 30th via Peaceville. Preorders for the album start tomorrow at 9am UK time. The album will feature new bassist Greg Wilkinson, who has worked with Autopsy svengali Chris Reifert in their band Static Abyss.
“…working with Greg on the Autopsy record was totally different than the Static Abyss one, mostly since Autopsy is a complete band with their own pre-established ways of doing things – we just abducted him into the band and had him roll with our ways, which he took to like a fish to gasoline so much so that he contributed a song musically which fit in perfectly with the rest of the sickening anthems on the album.”
The album also features another visual triumph from legendary illustrator Wes Benscoter, which you can see below. Says Reifert:
“Wes delivered another stunner. What a maniac! We didn’t give him much to work with as usual. I think, maybe, just a couple of song titles and themes maybe and his imagination did most of the work. The album title came along after the fact. After having our minds blown by Wes’ art we arrived at “Morbidity Triumphant” which seemed to fit the theme of the painting as well as the way we feel about the state of the band in general. We’ve been working hard at our sick craft with zero compromise and it seems we’re still hitting our stride somehow.”
Check out details for the album below, but suffice it to say, we are fucking stoked for this.
