Death metal legends Autopsy have finished work on their new album! Their seventh full length is titled Tourniquets, Hacksaws And Graves and will be available to the world on 21 April 2014 (the US will have to wait a week) via Peaceville Records.
Autopsy’s 2008 comeback was certainly a welcome surprise. What no-one knew at the time, however, was just how vigorous that return would be. In 2010, the lords of disgust offered their first new material in 15 years; the energy and out-of-the-box (pun intended) thinking displayed in it was simply stunning. Since the The Tomb Within EP, two full-lengths have followed and now the world is getting ready for Tourniquets, Hacksaws And Graves!
The band’s new album was recorded at Fantasy Studios with producer Adam Munoz. The artwork comes courtesy of Wes Benscoter, also responsible for 2011’s Macabre Eternal brilliant album cover. “From all-out death metal savagery to crawling, doom-filled sludgery, Tourniquets, Hacksaws & Graves further pushes the limits of taste and brutality with this latest relentless onslaught of terror from beyond the grave,” we are told.
Autopsy themselves comment: “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…”
Well hello there!
