Northern California death metal pioneer Autopsy will make a rare live appearance and headline the Gathering of the Bestial Legion festival on Saturday, January 14 at The Echo & Echoplex. This highly anticipated event was originally scheduled for August of 2011, but was postponed due to unforeseen circumstances. Alas, it will certainly be worth the wait!
In other recent news: Autopsy, has completed recording and re-mastering work on the upcoming All Tomorrow’s Funerals, due out February 28th on Peaceville Records. This monstrous release will contain all of Autopsy's EP's re-mastered by the band themselves, as well as new cuts, totaling 22 tracks all together. Everything from ‘Retribution For The Dead’ to the now sold-out, ‘The Tomb Within,’ will be presented on CD and DLP with all original artworks, liner notes from the band and new cover art from renowned artist, Matt Cavotta.
Said the band, “Well, we've finished recording a few new tracks for the upcoming collection album, All Tomorrow's Funerals, and they came out brutal and heavy as hell. Along with the newly written songs, we did a revamped version of “Mauled To Death,” which is the very last of the old songs that needed a proper album quality recording. This album will also contain all four EP's, all of which are out of print, as well as a compilation track from 1991, so the grand total is 22 tracks. It's something we've wanted to do for quite awhile, getting all the loose chunks together in one place rather than having them split up and added on as bonus tracks here and there. Everything has been painstakingly re-mastered with the band's guidance and sounds better and more crushing than ever. And don't worry, we didn't get carried away and ruin anything! Combine all that with killer new cover art from Matt Cavotta and we've got one hell of release in the works. Look for it in February 2012.
We are now working on all new material for the next album, due out late 2012/early 2013 and we can definitely promise more of what you would expect from Autopsy. There will be no compromise and no holding back. If you want 100% pure death metal brutality, you will certainly get it.”
