AUTOPSY picture
Autopsy is an influential death metal band, founded in 1987 in the United States by Chris Reifert after leaving Death. Beginning their career with the 'Severed Survival' LP, Autopsy took on a sound similar to that of Scream Bloody Gore era Death, but soon moved on to a doom metal influenced sound for the 'Retribution For The Dead' EP. The next full-length, 'Mental Funeral', would expand on Autopsy's "death doom" style of metal, and was met with great critical acclaim. Having completed a successful European tour soon after Mental Funeral, the band reentered the studio to record the 'Fiend for Blood' EP, which was followed by their third full-length, 'Acts Of The Unspeakable'. Autopsy's last album, 1994's 'Shitfun', was heavily influenced by hardcore punk and would prepare fans for Abscess, Danny Coralles and Chris Reifert's project after Autopsy's demise in 1995 ,but as of July 2009, have reunited.

AUTOPSY Reviews

AUTOPSY Shitfun

Album · 1995 · Death Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
UMUR
"Shitfun" is the 4th full-length studio album by US death metal act Autopsy. The album was released through Peaceville Records in September 1995. "Shitfun" was already recorded in Nov/Dec 1994 though. It was the last album released by the band until they reunited 2009 and a couple of years down the line released "Macabre Eternal (2011)". At the time of the release of "Shitfun", Autopsy had already disbanded and several of the members went on to form Abscess. For most of the recording sessions for "Shitfun", Autopsy functioned as the three-piece of Chris Reifert (Vocals, Drums, Bass), Danny Coralles (Guitars, Bass), and Eric Cutler (Guitars, Bass), but with some additional bass tracks being played by Freeway Migliore and Clint Bower. Both guests would be part of the early Abscess lineup.

Stylistically "Shitfun" pretty much continues down the filthy, old school US death metal path of "Acts of the Unspeakable (1992)", but still manages to sound vastly different from it´s predecessor. Not so much because of the music itself, but as a consequence of the very different sounding production. Where "Acts of the Unspeakable (1992)" features a rather thin sounding production, "Shitfun" features a dark, brutal, and rather meaty sounding ditto. The tracks alternate between faster deathgrinding parts, mid-paced death metal sections, and crushingly heavy/doomy parts. It´s often very simple, almost punk oriented, but Autopsy always incorporate little details to keep the listener interested throughout. The lead guitar work is for example very intriguing, and often the icing on the morbid cake. If you hadn´t guessed it by looking at the disgusting and perverted cover artwork, songtitles like "Humiliate Your Corpse", "I Sodomize Your Corpse", and "Shit Eater", should tell you that Autopsy is still as twisted and gore obsessed as always. This time around with an even more sick sexual twist.

The musicianship is a story in itself. Autopsy is just about the epitome of organic played old school death metal. The playing is skillful yet delivered with a great loose organic feel, that transports the listener right into the rehearsal room with the band. Chris Reifert´s growling vocals are relatively intelligible, and delivered in his usual deranged style, but it´s his drumming that deserves a special mention more than anything else. He is simply the master of this style of drumming. The other guys are well playing too.

The above mentioned sound production is very well sounding and brings the best out in the tracks. So upon conclusion "Shitfun" is a great death metal release by Autopsy. At 21 tracks distributed over a 55:38 minutes long playing time, the album is a bit too long for it´s own good, but taken track by track, there is a lot of quality to be found here. A 4 star (80%) rating is deserved.

AUTOPSY Skull Grinder

voila_la_scorie
I knew "Severed Survival" was probably the Autopsy album to get but I had recently found that many "classic" and "influencial" albums were also the most expensive. Also, the sound quality of more recent albums was often better than the old school classics. So, in the case of Autopsy, I decided to sample listen to a few albums and pick the one that sounded best and that was also not too expensive. It's no surprise then that the album I ordered was also an EP, explaining why it was cheaper than others.

Thus, "Skull Grinder", the band's most recent release to date from what I can see on MMA, became my introduction to this death metal band that also skirt the edges of death / doom.

Things I like: Chris Reifert's merciless and unappologetic gravel-throated vocals, which are not entirely unitelligible; the guitar sound and some of the monster heavy riffs; the mad drumming by Chris Reifert; and the speed changes within songs.

A lot of death metal bands are about blasting through at high speeds with little time to slow down and stomp on your feet and boot your hiney a few times. Autopsy easily blast you with speed and aggression and then pull back and paddle you silly.

There are two short tracks on this release: "Sanity Bleeds" and "Return to Dead". The first is slower with a simple guitar melody and no drums. Reifert bellows like some diabolical warlord and then we get lots of crazy guitar effects. I can't say that this is one worth stand-alone play. "Return to Dead" comes on sounding like a horror movie theme song done by a metal band. It's got this eerie, demented-sounding melody. More wailing, crazy guitar effects enhance the aura of madness. Again, not a fav but interesting.

The other five tracks, though, sound awesome. Just straightforward Autopsy-style death metal. I might be mistaken but I think they have used some wah-wah on a couple of tracks which almost gives the guitar a retro feel. A possible favourite is "Waiting for the Screams" because it has one of those spine-chilling, doom metal riffs.

My only disappointment is that the album is just an EP. I would have loved a full album of songs like the five that are over three minutes. Now I have two Autopsy albums and I'll surely be checking out a third sometime in the not too distant future.

The YouTube program Lock Horns by Banger TV, the same fine people who do Banger Films, has been a wonderful way for me to learn about bands. Autopsy is one such band that came up on an episode about early death metal and I had already seen their album “Severed Survival” mentioned on some old school death metal lists. “Mental Funeral” was my second purchase of the band’s output and it is this album that really made me feel it money well-spent.

There are three things that I get excited about when listening to “Mental Funeral”. First, this is a band that knows how to come up with really awesome riffs. In fact, I would say many of their coolest riffs are like an alternate universe’s Black Sabbath with maybe some Pentagram in there as well. Oh, they have their slow doom, pounding chords and their speedy, cantering death attacks. But Autopsy easily slip in this groovy riffs that swagger with the drums. The thing is, just about every song will include all three approaches, meaning you never know when a song will abruptly change gear or how it will change. A charging intro might drop down with some crushing slow chords and then throw in some swinging groove early doom riff. Nice!

Next, I love the guitar sound. It makes me think of a band that was going for a seventies doom metal sound rather than a nineties death metal sound. It just sounds like old school distortion but it’s so nice on my ears. It’s interesting to note that the title of the song “In the Grip of Winter” was inspired by the Budgie song title “In the Grip of a Tyrefitter’s Hand”. Seems like there is some old school influence after all.

Third, they did something with the drums. I don’t know if they loosened the skin on the snare or what it is, but the drums have this slightly slack, clacking, slapping sound that for me just works so well on this album. I doubt I’d want to hear it in too many other places but for “Mental Funeral” I think it’s just wicked. Add to that the fact that drummer and vocalist Chris Reifert can play his drums with slick skill makes the percussion section even more interesting to listen to. I particularly noticed how he doesn’t rely on the double kick drums too often, employing them to great effect when he does.

Now it’s funny that I noticed just now that the drummer is also the lead vocalist because as I was listening to the album on my way home tonight, I was thinking of how to describe the vocals and at first I thought of a large, drooling troll but soon it came to me that Reifert sounds like Animal from The Muppets only three times larger in size. He’s like a a troll-sized Animal doing vocals, and since Animal is also a drummer, well, it just fits. What is he growling about? I don’t really know though I can guess it’s gory and bloody and gross.

I have so far brought home nearly 50 albums since I began delving deeply into extreme metal from this spring and this album has been one of the more outstanding ones. I don’t know if Autopsy’s next album followed this style but for now, “Mental Funeral” is likely to make my top ten favourite purchases of the year.

AUTOPSY Acts of the Unspeakable

Album · 1992 · Death Metal

UMUR
"Acts of the Unspeakable" is the 3rd full-length studio album by US death metal act Autopsy. The album was released through Peaceville Records in October 1992. Josh Barohn has replaced Steve Cutler as the band´s new bassist, but other than that, the lineup who recorded "Mental Funeral (1991)" is still intact. While Autopsy never achieved anything resembling mainstream fame or any noteworthy commercial success (which counts for most death metal acts out there), they were one of the more prolific acts on the death metal scene of the early 90s. Not in top 10 maybe, but close enough. Much of that success was due to the high quality of "Mental Funeral (1991)" which was an almost instant underground death metal classic of the most raw, filthy, and old school kind, so expectations amongs the fans were pretty high for the successor. Autopsy were never out to please anyone though and they tread their own path with "Acts of the Unspeakable", which is ultimately quite a different sounding album to it´s predecessor.

Graced with a cover artwork, with what can best be described as an evil cartoonish enterpretation of hell (obviously influenced by Hieronymus Bosch), we are made aware from the get go, that Autopsy haven´t changed their gory lyrical universe and if anyone should be in doubt, song titles like "Necrocannibalistic Vomitorium", "Battery Acid Enema", or maybe "Orgy in Excrements" will probably convince them otherwise. The vocals are as always delivered in a rather personal, rot filled, and insanity laden growling vocal style by drummer/vocalist Chris Reifert. So far...so good. This is how we know and love/hate Autopsy.

The actual music is a bit different than the old school death metal with doomy leanings that Autopsy played on "Mental Funeral (1991)" though. Stylistically the music on "Acts of the Unspeakable" has taken a turn down deathgrind boulevard although the album still features mid-paced and doomy sections. And by deathgrind I don´t mean blast beat dominated grindcore, because there are no actual blast beats on "Acts of the Unspeakable", just fast played sections, but it´s the aestethics of the music and the occasionally more simple punky tinged riffs that point in that direction. The tracks have also become much shorter and there are the whole 18 of them on the 35:19 minutes long album. Some of them less than a minute long, and most between 1 and 2 minutes long. So the tracks are not given much time to develop and compositionally the music on the album is generally a lot less intriguing and adventurous than the case was on "Mental Funeral (1991)". Sometimes it feels like the band hit the rehearsal room, played half a song and then recorded it for the album, without fully developing the music.

The sound production is not especially powerful sounding. It´s relatively raw and murky without losing clarity, but it seriouly lacks punch. Especially the guitars are buried in the mix and it´s a real shame as I´m sure the final outcome would have been a lot more interesting had the album featured a better sound production.

A bit more variation between tracks could also have done the trick, because that´s also a complaint here. This is old school death metal, so I don´t expect the diversity level to be extremely high (and wouldn´t want it to be), but there are far too many of the 18 tracks that don´t make an impression and don´t stick either. In that respect "Acts of the Unspeakable" is a pretty one-dimensional release, and when the more doomy sections with guitar harmonies appear it´s like you´ve been given a straw to hold on to. But those sections are too few and far between, and when they finally occur, they are always cut short.

It´s obvious that Autopsy were still searching for a sound that would please themselves at this point and in doing that they more or less disregarded what most of their fans were screaming for (which was more of that filthy old school doomy death metal), and it´s safe to say that "Acts of the Unspeakable" was not the successor to "Mental Funeral (1991)" that most people had hoped for. When that is said and all complaints are filed, it´s actually still a pretty great old school death metal album with a pretty unique sound. It has trouble maintaining my attention through the duration of the album, because not enough of the tracks stand out, but a 3 - 3.5 star (65%) rating is still deserved.

AUTOPSY Horrific Obsession

Single · 2009 · Death Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
UMUR
"Horrific Obsession" is a single release by US death metal act Autopsy. The single was released through Peaceville Records in January 2009. The single is limited to 1000 copies on 7" vinyl. Autopsy disbanded in 1995 and while "Horrific Obsession" is the first release featuring new original material by the band since then, it´s not really a comeback release as it was originally intended as a one-off for the fans. Lead vocalist/drummer Chris Reifert and guitarist Danny Coralles were still active with Abscess at this point, and it wouldn´t be another year or two before they laid that band to rest and opted to reunite with guitarist Eric Cutler and continue with Autopsy. The 7:56 minutes long "Horrific Obsession" features 2 tracks with two different bass players. Clint Bower plays the bass on "Horrific Obsession" and Joe Allen plays bass on "Feast of the Graveworm".

Stylistically the two tracks are old school US death metal, which isn´t much of a surprise if you are familiar with Autopsy, who are one of the originators of the genre. They´ve played variations on that style throughout their career though and these two tracks mostly remind me of the early 90s filthy doomy death metal albums by the band and not their last couple of more grind and punk influenced releases. The tracks feature a raw and organic sound production which suits the music well.

"Horrific Obsession" is a great fan item and quality wise the tracks are also pretty strong. It´s not the band´s most memorable compositions, but they are both powerful, filthy, and for the genre, relatively adventurous. Autopsy always hailed old school death metal aestethics, but their songwriting is actually rather unconventional and at times even unpredictable, which always make their releases an interesting listening experience. All sections on their tracks might not always fit that well together, but they somehow manage to make it work, and that´s not an easy achivement. A 3.5 star (70%) rating is deserved.
