|Autopsy Tourniquets, Hacksaws And Graves Limited Vinyl LP
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.
