Autopsy’s eighth album set for release on 30 September
That’s right folks, the eighth “bout of extreme sickness” Morbidity Triumphant will be spewed forth via Peaceville Records on the last day of September! Watch the trailer here.
Recorded at Opus Studios, with long-associated engineer Adam Munoz at the helm – mastering by Ken Lee – this is the first album to feature new bassist Greg Wilkinson, who features alongside Chris Reifert in his other musical interest Static Abyss (featured in issue 106). Chris comments on the collaboration for Autopsy: “Working with Greg on the Autopsy record was totally different than the Static Abyss one, mostly since Autopsy is a complete band with their own pre-established ways of doing things – we just abducted him into the band and had him roll with our ways, which he took to like a fish to gasoline so much so that he contributed a song musically which fit in perfectly with the rest of the sickening anthems on the album.”
And a new Autopsy record wouldn’t be complete with some fittingly twisted artwork, courtesy of Wes Benscoter (Slayer, Bloodbath). “Wes delivered another stunner,” says Chris of the cover. “What a maniac! We didn’t give him much to work with as usual. I think, maybe, just a couple of song titles and themes maybe and his imagination did most of the work. The album title came along after the fact. After having our minds blown by Wes’ art we arrived at Morbidity Triumphant which seemed to fit the theme of the painting as well as the way we feel about the state of the band in general. We’ve been working hard at our sick craft with zero compromise and it seems we’re still hitting our stride somehow.”
The album will be available in various formats, including an exclusive limited edition violet coloured vinyl that’ll be available exclusively via Peaceville label stores. Pre-orders are available here.
