AUTOPSY Preparing To Enter Studio

Legendary San Francisco Bay Area gore grind act AUTOPSY is preparing to begin work on its sixth album for a mid-2013 release via Peaceville Records. According to the group, the CD will be its "heaviest, darkest and most devastating album to date." The band adds, "This task is not being taken lightly and the band will see to it eardrums are torn, minds are destroyed and skulls are crushed.

"To make the horror complete, none other than famed artist Joe Petagno is handling the cover painting.

"Brace yourself for a mid-2013 release and know your hunger for death metal will be met with soul bludgeoning darkness and blood spattering savagery."

Peaceville has just released a vinyl edition of AUTOPSY's original 1995 swan song, "Shitfun", plus the ABSCESS classic "Through the Cracks of Death", marking 10 years since its original release and now presented for the first time ever on vinyl.

AUTOPSY recently released a new DVD, "Born Undead", via Peaceville. The set charts AUTOPSY's birth, death and rebirth with an extensive documentary conducted with the bandmembers themselves, as they describe how the beast came to be, and the impact their music has had on the metal world over a span of more than 20 years. The film also documents the band's long-awaited return to the studio and stage, and includes rehearsal footage of both new tracks and old classics for their live comeback assault.
