Product Description

The new studio album - a relentless onslaught of dual guitar mastery & vocals from beyond the grave. One of the early breed of US death metal acts, Autopsy formed in 1987 in San Francisco, & released 4 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'. This was followed by the release of the band's fifth studio album, 'Macabre Eternal' in 2011, to great acclaim, as well as last year's sinister opus 'The Headless Ritual'. 'Tourniquets, Hacksaws & Graves' is the bands seventh studio album. It was recorded at Fantasy Studios with producer Adam Munoz and sees a continuation of Autopsy's pursuit of the ultimate in metallic horror and extremity, combining the masterful guitar duo of Eric Cutler and Danny Coralles with Joe Trevisano on bass duties. From all-out death metal savagery to crawling, doom-filled sludgery with Chris Reifert's distinctive brand of vocal sickness, 'Tourniquets, Hacksaws & Graves' further pushes the limits of taste and brutality. Artwork comes courtesy of Wes Benscoter, who was also previously responsible for the stunning 'Macabre Eternal' album cover. "Tourniquets Tighten....Hacksaws Rip.....Graves Are Filled.....This Is Autopsy, This Is Death Metal.... With the stench of 'The Headless Ritual' still permeating the befouled air, Autopsy has once again come for your very metal soul with their newest blood soaked homage to all things dark, twisted and horrific....once again bone crushingly heavy nightmares await...."Tourniquets, Hacksaws and Graves" will awaken the most depraved part of the coldest zombie's stare.....blood will flow, brains will be destroyed, coffin lids will be opened…". AUTOPSY Autopsy notably features legendary drummer Chris Reifert, who began his recording career with US metal greats, Death, before taking on the unusual duty of handling both drums and vocals for Autopsy. The band has influenced a whole generation of extreme metal bands, from Entombed to Darkthrone.

HASH(0x983d1bc4) out of 5 stars More Awesome Autopsy 18 Jun. 2014
By William L. Davis - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
These last few years in death metal have been very exciting for me with the great Autopsy creating new material at a frightening speed. After listening to death metal for so many years one thing I've found is that even if a newer band is better produced, faster or whatever, nothing quite matches the listening experience of Autopsy's brand of very raw and grimy metal. This is more vintage Autopsy death metal, of course wrapped up with over-the-top repulsive elements, from vocals to lyrics to guitars and drums, everything about the experience is the feel of something oozing out of the graveyard--very few bands capture this atmosphere for me the way Autopsy does. I'd also like to point out that being how they're one of my favorite bands, and that I'm in my mid-thirties now, it's a huge relief to (after all those years) have this abundance of new material that (to me) outdoes the classic albums of the early years. Really breathes new life (yeah I guess I should say death, derp!) into my favorite music genre. Getting this album makes me feel like a teen again, gluttonously diving into the scene anew! Not everybody is going to get Autopsy, but if you appreciate drippy, cheesy, gory and gloomy horror movies and the feel they create you may very well also love Autopsy's brand of morbid death metal!

HASH(0x98c38be8) out of 5 stars Autopsy still at full strength 25 May 2014

Autopsy may seem to be pumping albums out fast, but you should consider they did this while they were Abscess. This album is truly Autopsy in top form, rotten death/doom accompanied by the best vocalist in death metal. This, along with Dead Congregation's new one, are the death metal albums to get this year, so far.

HASH(0x985103f0) out of 5 stars More of the gory good stuff 19 Jun. 2014
By A. Stutheit - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Their third album since returning in 2011 after a sixteen year hiatus finds Autopsy do more of what they are best at: Spitting out seething, crust-caked death metal/thrash with grinding intensities and occasional doomy breakdowns. And whether choosing to gun the engines with Slayer-inspired speed or opting to scale things down a tad with Sabbath-esque slow sludginess, the intensity level remains in the red throughout. The only thing that is missing from 2014’s “Tourniquets, Hacksaws, and Graves” is the technical bass playing of four-string virtuoso Steve DiGiorgio. Other than that, this is a true return to form for the band, an album that harkens back to their glory days (i.e. 1989’s “Severed Survival”), the period that was long before the time they went on to influence a whole new generation of gore-metallers like Cannibal Corpse.

Cuts like the album’s thunderous opener, “Savagery,” get by mainly on crashing, clattering cymbal rides, booming riffs, deranged soloing, and retching vocals, thus making them brutally filth-caked slabs of splatter-house death-thrash. And even slower ventures, like “King Of Flesh Ripped,” an ominously mid-tempo venture with a greater emphasis on guitar soloing, never fail to relent in their intensity. This is thanks mostly due to the fact that the grindcore-esque vocals are bah-roo-tal, and are filthy enough to sound positively wet in your ears. Of course, said song does eventually speed up and plunge into blistering deathgrind territory after a screaming solo comes shredding through the mix maybe three-quarters of the way into the track. And immediately following this excursion, the album gets right back into the thick of things with “Tourniquets,” a meaty, groove-happy death-thrash melee with raspy, shrieking vocals that trade off with brutally low growls, and do so to excellent effect. And a guitar solo, which is positively wailing, is also tacked on to the tail end of the tune.

“The Howling Dead” is another one of the album’s more memorable moments, although it is a bit of an anomaly, as it finds a creeping, spoken-word vocal dialogue being laid over thunderously grooving guitar and grumbling bass riffs. The end result is one terrifically portentous, skin-crawling, spine-tingling, and doom-y-tinged cut with ominous ambiance and flailing, shredding solos. But all bets are again off for the blistering “After The Cutting,” an old-school-influenced pure grindcore jaunt with groove-centric riffing, awesome drum fills, noteworthy bass work, careening, Repulsion-ish soloing, and grindcore-worthy vocal belching.

And working similarly to the already mentioned “King Of Flesh Ripped,” “Forever Hungry” kick-starts with a decisively slower intro before dissolving into rip-roaring death-grind thrashiness with guitar leads that race in reckless abandon, pounding, cracking blast beats, and bottom-heavy bass grumbles. Frontman Chris Reifert’s vocals, meanwhile, are of the traditional goregrind style, imitating Carcass’ Jeff Walker without a hint of irony, and “Forever Hungry” is further highlighted by a few more wild, unorthodoxly shredding solo runs, too.

The second half of the album kicks off with one of its catchiest cuts in “Teeth Of The Shadow Horde,” which is filled with adherently groovy and memorable riffs, crashing drum beats, and blistering solos. Then, following “All Shall Bleed” (a simple little interlude track that serves as a perfectly-placed monotony breaker), we are treated to the first of the set’s two final doomy ventures in the decisively ominous “Deep Crimson Dreaming,” whose plodding, drawn-out cadence is punctuated perfectly by piercing solos (including one wah-tinged one that easily takes the cake for being the finest solo on the whole album!). And the second of these two doom-centric ditties is “Burial,” which marries another terrifically dark and memorable, doom-soaked guitar lick against plodding, crawling rhythms, and brutal pig squeal vocals. “Burial” does have a fast, adrenaline-packed conclusion, though, where the guitarists blistering, careening solos.

And the conclusion of said song flows perfectly into Autopsy’s namesake title track, which is also the set’s thrash-it-out recklessly closer that overflows with more memorable riffs, solos, and lyrics. But this is all after the inclusion of “Parasitic Eye,” which is sandwiched between the two above-described doomy ventures, and one of the record’s more memorable inclusions. It opens with a fabulous, air-guitar-able (and surprisingly melodic) solo section before once again catapulting head-first into grinding death-thrash-dom with fiery guitar leads and dexterous double-time drum pummel. Some memorably catchy vocal patterns also pepper the mix, here, as well.

A macabre (and mostly masterful) extreme metal monster.

Last 2 records have been really good like their old stuff. Their worst release was Sh*t Fun. This is nothing like it. Get it, it's worth it!
