Mental Funeral - 20th anniversary CD/DVD edition coming October

Mental Funeral

Autopsy’s 1991 masterpiece, ‘Mental Funeral’, will be re-released October 17th, marking 20 years since the birth of this classic slab of brutality. This new edition includes a bonus DVD featuring 2 early live shows, from Rotterdam 1990, & San Pedro 1991, as well as extensive new liner notes from the band. Pre-order here.

One of the early breed of US death metal acts, Autopsy formed in 1987 in San Francisco, & released 4 albums on Peaceville Records - beginning with the classic debut ‘Severed Survival’ in 1989 - before disbanding in 1995, with members going on to form Abscess.

Autopsy triumphantly & officially returned from the grave after a 15 year hiatus with the 2010 EP, ‘The Tomb Within’, along with a trio of festival headline appearances. This was followed by the release of the band’s fifth studio album, ‘Macabre Eternal’ in 2011, to great acclaim, as well as more live festival performances throughout the US & Europe. 

‘Mental Funeral’ was Autopsy’s second studio album of brutality & depravity - originally released back in 1991 - & this special edition marks the album’s 20th anniversary with the inclusion of a bonus DVD featuring 2 previously unseen shows from Rotterdam (1990) & San Pedro (1991) straight from the band archives, as well as extensive liner notes in the booklet, with the core trio of Chris Reifert, Eric Cutler, & Danny Coralles describing their thoughts & reflections on each of the album’s tracks. 

‘Mental Funeral’ is rightly hailed as one of the greatest death metal albums of all time with its twisted structures & raw production, & over the years Autopsy has remained a highly influential act to a whole generation of bands such as Darkthrone, Entombed, Dismember & Bloodbath.
