• autopsy Severed Survival (CD, £7.95)

    label: peaceville

    Features the alternate ‘surgeons’ cover. One of the early death metal acts, & no stranger to controversy over the years, Autopsy formed in 1987 in San Francisco, & released 4 albums on Peaceville Records before disbanding in 1995 & going on to form Abscess, only to re-emerge as Autopsy after an almost 15 year hiatus with the stunning ‘The Tomb Within’, as well as a string of successful releases following afterwards. The band features legendary drummer Chris Reifert, who began his recording career with US metal greats, Death, before taking on the unusual duty of handling drums & vocals for Autopsy, alongside longstanding riff-masters Eric Cutler & Danny Coralles. Autopsy has influenced a whole generation of extreme metal bands, from Entombed & Dismember to Darkthrone. ‘Severed Survival’ is (rightly) hailed as one of death metal’s finest releases. A completely rotten & uncompromising sound full of dirty, sludgy, death & doom metal mixed with repulsive tales of death and disease, it was originally released in April 1989. This mid-price CD edition of ‘Severed Survival’ is presented in a jewel case with an 8-page booklet and OBI card, & features the alternate ‘surgeons’ artwork on the cover as well as the controversial original art in the booklet. Tracks: Charred Remains / Service For A Vacant Coffin / Disembowel / Gasping For Air / Ridden With Disease / Pagan Saviour / Impending Dread/ Severed Survival / Critical Madness / Embalmed / Stillborn / Funereality ( Bonus Track ) / Destined To Fester ( Bonus Track ) / In The Grip Of Winter ( Bonus Track )
