Looks like November will be a good month for Autopsy fans. The band have announced that they will be releasing a new four disc set titled After The Cutting, on November 13, which will be followed by a new album titled Skull Grinder. The four disc set will include classic songs, new tracks (including Skull Grinder), rarities and a special book penned by Dennis Dread. Skull Grinder itself will be available on vinyl for Record Store Day’s Black Friday (November 27), with a 2016 CD release still pending.
Autopsy issued the following statement:
“We at AUTOPSY HQ are pleased to have the opportunity to once again torture your minds and ear holes through the medium of recorded brutality.
“The band went back to Fantasy Studios in Berkeley in late July to record a brand new release called ‘Skull Grinder’. Musically, it’s just what you’d expect from us; no style changes, wimpouts, sellouts, settling down or caving in. Add to that acknowledgement of the obvious, some of Wes Benscoter’s sickest art yet to (dis)grace the cover, and you have a new sledgehammer to the bowels with no apologies offered whatsoever.
“In case that isn’t enough to bring the taste of bile into the back of your throat, let it be known that there is also a four-disc set on the way titled ‘After The Cutting’, packed with hours of horrifying music, cover art from none other than Kev Walker as well as an extensive book written by Dennis Dread, riddled with interviews, photos and other assorted uncleanliness. The release date for both of these monstrosities is slated for this coming November. More details are forthcoming…”
