Californian death metal auteurs AUTOPSY recently announced their upcoming album, Ashes, Organs, Blood and Crypts. The band has released the first single, “Throatsaw” for your perusal. The album will be released on October 27th On Peaceville Records.
From The Press Release
After the announcement of their new album ‘Ashes, Organs, Blood and Crypts’, Autopsy peel back the skin of their new record with a bloodied single, ‘Throatsaw’. The track is whirling dervish of razor sharp riffing and serrated vocals that slice through the mix delivering that signature Autopsy sound.
Regarding the single, Chris Reifert had the following to say:
“For this selection we have decided to cast aside musical acrobatics, high-brow labyrinthian showings off of scales, sweeps and noodlings, lush sonic passages and deep audio journeys rare and untold, egotistical trains of thought and neo-classical wizardry and well…just cut your fuckin’ throat wide open and giggle like cretins while the blood sprays in every direction. Doesn’t that sound like fun, kiddies?”
The single is accompanied by an animated lyric visualiser created by Andrea Mantelli Productions (Facebook / Instagram)
Hot on the heels of 2022’s universally lauded opus, ‘Morbidity Triumphant’, the US death metal greats now return for a new sermon of sickness, with ‘Ashes, Organs, Blood & Crypts’, featuring brutal bouts of riffery feral attacks, soul crushing doom and all out skull splitting heaviness.
Emerging from their sepulchre comes yet another horrendous piece of art from long time collaborator Wes Benscoter (Bloodbath / Slayer). Inspired by the title, the band let Wes’ imagination run amok, conjuring up yet another horrifying monument to Autopsy’s latest musical offering.
The album was recorded by Scott Evans and Greg Wilkinson at Sharkbite Studios with additional tracking at Earhammer Studios by Greg Wilkinson and was mixed by Greg Wilkinson and mastered by Ken Lee.
‘Ashes, Organs, Blood and Crypts’ will be available for pre-order in the following formats – Limited edition Red LP (Blood) / Yellow LP (Organs – available exclusively from the Peaceville Stores) and Orange LP (Crypts), LP (Ashes), CD and Digital.

One of the longest running death metal acts active today, and an inspiration for whole generations of depraved metal maniacs the world over, Autopsy formed in 1987 and released four albums on Peaceville Records – beginning with the classic debut ‘Severed Survival’ in 1989 – before disbanding in 1995, with members going on to form the equally disturbed Abscess. Autopsy officially returned after a fifteen year hiatus with the 2010 EP, ‘The Tomb Within’, followed closely by their fifth studio album, ‘Macabre Eternal’ in 2011, which set them on a new bloodthirsty trail, with the reinvigorated intent of creating more of the sickest and most twisted & uncompromising music ever to grace a turntable. The band has remained prolific ever since.
