Less than a year since their last album, The Headless Ritual, death metal pioneers Autopsy are getting ready to unleash their seventh studio album, Tourniquets, Hacksaws and Graves. The new morbid masterpiece is set for an April 22nd release in Europe and April 29th in North America through Peaceville, until then, you can quell your thirst for black market surgery with the new track “Burial.”
“Burial,” which is currently streaming over at Pitchfork, is a slow, heavy, hypnotic, and trance inducing melody. It will have you standing wide-mouthed at its pure heavy awesomeness and perfect tonality, then Autopsy will come in at the end and knock your jaw clear off your face.
Tourniquets, Hacksaws and Graves can be pre-ordered now at: www.burningshed.com
Commented the band:
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 ’s stare…..blood will flow, brains will be destroyed, coffin lids will be opened…
Tourniquets, Hacksaws and Graves was recorded at Fantasy Studios with producer, Adam Munoz, and sees a continuation of Autopsy’s pursuit of the ultimate in metallicand extremity, featuring the longstanding combo of Eric Cutler and Danny Coralles on guitars, Joe Trevisano on bass and Chris Reifert on drums/vocals.
