æRetribution for the DeadÆ was originally released back in 1991 & was AutopsyÆs first EP, sandwiched in between their all-time death metal classic albums, æSevered SurvivalÆ & æMental FuneralÆ. With the core trio of Chris Reifert, Eric Cutler & Danny Coralles joined by Steve Cutler on bass, Autopsy delivered another rotten dose of punishing and deranged death metal. æRetribution for the DeadÆ notably includes earlier versions of the tracks æIn the Grip of WinterÆ and æDestined to FesterÆ, which were then to appear in re-recorded form on the bandÆs second LP, æMental FuneralÆ. Autopsy formed in 1987 and features legendary drummer Chris Reifert, who began his recording career with US metal greats, Death, before taking on the unusual duty of handling drums & vocals for Autopsy, alongside longstanding riff-masters Eric Cutler & Danny Coralles. Autopsy originally disbanded in the mid 90Æs following their fourth album, the tastefully titled æShitfunÆ, (going on to form sickadelic deathsters, Abscess) before returning from the grave in the late 2000Æs. They have successfully spread the sickness far and wide to global audiences since, whilst continuing to inspire a whole generation of metal bands, having been no strangers to controversy themselves along the way for pushing the boundaries of extremity. This edition of æRetribution for the DeadÆ is presented on standalone vinyl for the first time since its initial release in 1991 & contains the original sleeve artwork.
