Autopsy

New album, 'The Headless Ritual', coming this June

June 24th (July 2nd US) marks the return of Autopsy, the US masters of brutality, with their sixth studio opus of horror and all-out madness, titled ‘The Headless Ritual’, on Peaceville Records. Featuring the returning quartet of Chris Reifert, Eric Cutler, Danny Coralles, and Joe Trevisano, ‘The Headless Ritual’ is a relentless monster of violent and brutal death metal mastery delivered in the unmistakable Autopsy style of chaotic riffing, insane solos and doom-filled interludes, all served with the band’s unhinged brand of vocal sickness. The album was recorded and mixed April 2013 at Fantasy Studios in California with Adam Munoz, and features cover artwork by renowned artist Joe Petagno (Motörhead, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin).

My Dying Bride

'The Manuscript' pre-orders now available

Set for release on May 13th on both CD & vinyl, the latest work from the doom legends is now available for pre-order HERE.

‘The Manuscript’ contains 4 new & exclusive songs; a dark voyage spanning over 27 minutes of supreme doom in the unmistakable My Dying Bride style of heaviness mixed with dark tales of foreboding. It was recorded & mixed at Futureworks Studios in Manchester, UK with the band’s long-time producer, Mags.

As the band comments:
"The Manuscript features four monstrous tracks of brilliantly crafted metal that only My Dying Bride can do, with swathes of doom laden melancholy, harmonic beauty and thundering death metal all combined in their trademark sound. Four tales of tragedy, loss and bitter vengeance greet the listener with an added assault on the emotions too, leaving the soul grey and limp. There is beauty here, but it's carrying a dark blade.

Autopsy

US death metal legends to commence work on ‘The Headless Ritual’

Gutwrenching greetings, gore hungry earthlings!

Autopsy is set to defile the recording studio beginning April 1st, 2013 to lay down the tracks for their upcoming album "The Headless Ritual" for Peaceville Records. The band has their instruments set on kill and their newest batch of songs ready to come to unlife in order to crawl inside your skulls, lay their foul eggs and corrupt your very souls. Fantasy Studios is the place, Adam Munoz is the conduit and your ears and brains are the destination. Cover art has been painted by none other than the legendary Joe Petagno and it's safe to say he has outdone himself with this gruesome slice of horror.
Expect nothing less than the monstrous brutality that Autopsy has been known to offer. Laurels will not be rested upon, trends will not be followed and mercy will not be shown.
Mark your calendars for June and pick out a coffin to lie down and die in. Darkness and death await.....
