One of the early breed of US death metal acts, Autopsy formed in 1987 in San Francisco and released 4 albums on Peaceville Records - beginning with the classic debut æSevered SurvivalÆ in 1989 - before disbanding in 1995, with members going on to form Abscess. Autopsy triumphantly and officially returned from the grave after a 15-year hiatus with the 2010 EP, æThe Tomb WithinÆ. This was followed by the release of the bandÆs fifth studio album, æMacabre EternalÆ in 2011, to great acclaim, as well as last yearÆs opus of aural sickness æPuncturing the GrotesqueÆ. Autopsy notably features legendary drummer Chris Reifert, who began his recording career with US metal greats, Death, before taking on the unusual duty of handling both drums and vocals for Autopsy. The band has influenced a whole generation of extreme metal bands, from Entombed to Darkthrone.æTourniquets, Hacksaws and GravesÆ is the band's seventh studio album. It was recorded at Fantasy Studios with producer Adam Munoz and saw a continuation of AutopsyÆs pursuit of the ultimate in metallic horror and extremity, combining the masterful guitar duo of Eric Cutler and Danny Coralles with Joe Trevisano on bass duties. From all-out death metal savagery to crawling, doom-filled sludgery with Chris ReifertÆs distinctive brand of vocal sickness, æTourniquets, Hacksaws & GravesÆ further pushes the limits of taste and brutality. Artwork comes courtesy of Wes Benscoter, who was also previously responsible for the stunning æMacabre EternalÆ album cover. This mid-price CD edition of 'Tourniquets, Hacksaws and Graves' is presented in jewel case packaging complete with a 16-page booklet.
