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.
Tourniquets, Hacksaws & Graves
The origin of this vile creation known as Autopsy goes back to August of 1987 in Antioch, California, spawned by the meeting of guitarist Eric Cutler and drummer Chris Reifert, who had recently left the band Death. The two wasted no time in forming a deadly band with a clear vision of creating the heaviest, most brutal music possible. Brief tryouts for a vocalist were attempted but ultimately proved to be futile. In the interest of moving things along, Reifert took on the job of vocalist along with drumming, while Cutler would lend his guttural vocals to the song "Mauled to Death", one of Autopsy's first creations.READ MORE
