Autopsy, a death metal band that has been active for decades, is regarded as one of the longest-running acts in the genre. Originating in San Francisco in 1987, Autopsy was formed by drummer/vocalist Chris Reifert, who was previously a member of the influential band Death from Florida. Their debut album, “Severed Survival,” released in 1989 under Peaceville Records, is considered a classic. After disbanding in 1995, the members went on to form another dark and twisted band, Abscess. However, Autopsy made a comeback after a fifteen-year hiatus in 2010 with the release of the EP “The Tomb Within.” This was followed closely by their fifth studio album, “Macabre Eternal,” in 2011. With a renewed vigor, Autopsy aimed to create the sickest and most uncompromising music ever heard. Since then, the band has remained active and productive. Their latest album, “Morbidity Triumphant,” released in 2022, received widespread acclaim. It also marked the debut of new bassist Greg Wilkinson, who is currently part of the death doom duo Static Abyss with Chris. Now, Autopsy returns with yet another gruesome offering titled “Ashes, Organs, Blood & Crypts.” The album features the signature brutal riffs and ferocious attacks of Chris Reifert, renowned for his macabre lyrics. Eleven tracks of pure auditory assault await listeners, with blistering guitar solos from Eric Cutler and Danny Coralles adding to the frenzy. The music is classic death metal, relentless and aiming straight for the jugular. Interspersed within the onslaught are moments of brooding and delirious descents into doom-inspired chaos. Recorded at Sharkbite Studios by Scott Evans and Greg Wilkinson, with additional tracking and mixing at Earhammer studios by Greg Wilkinson, “Ashes, Organs, Blood & Crypts” maintains the band’s high production standards. The mastering work was once again entrusted to Ken Lee. The album’s cover artwork, fittingly morbid, was created by the talented Wes Benscoter, known for his work with Bloodbath and Slayer. Autopsy continues to deliver their unique brand of death metal, leaving a trail of darkness and inspiration for metal enthusiasts worldwide. “Ashes, Organs, Blood & Crypts” serves as another testament to their enduring legacy in the genre.
