AUTOPSY have announced a new mini-album!
Titled Puncturing The Grotesque, the new mini-album will be released to coincide with the band’s 30th anniversary. The upcoming album was recorded at Earhammer Studios (VIOLATION WOUND), in Oakland CA with engineering & co-production duties carried out by Greg Wilkinson. Speaking about their landmark anniversary, vocalist/drummer Chris Reifert says, “30 years of AUTOPSY…how the hell did that happen? Seems like just yesterday but somehow a million years ago that a couple of degenerate teenagers formed this beast that still lumbers and lurches around the confines of the studio and the expanse of the world itself. It’s hard for us to believe too. Just don’t think we’re letting you out of the audio noose yet….we still have some of our sickest tricks up our sleeves for your horrific pleasure!” Alongside the announcement of the new mini-album, the band has released the first glimpse of the new material through the title track.
