autopsy mental funeral review

This record is a masterpiece of pure death metal. Add Review. Tatsächlich steht die Wahl dieses eher obskuren Demofrühwerks aber stellvertretend für genau die eine Geschmacksnote zu viel, die „Alchemical Warfare” (ja, genau: Slayer) in der Gesamtschau leider etwas gestaltlos erscheinen lässt: Getragene, kilometertief ausholende Schwere bleibt die Kernkompetenz des Trios ('The Great Beast We Serve'), der gelegentliche Anstrich von Rotz'n'Rumpel funzt dagegen leider nicht so recht. Und so ist „Too Mean To Die“ in erster Linie eine weitere Variante der Alben seit „Blood Of The Nations“ (2010): perfekt gespielter, messerscharf riffender Heavy Metal mit Tornillos röhrender Reibeisenstimme, die von Platte zu Platte selbstsicherer und besser wird. Yes, its heavy-as-balls death metal with riffs all over the place, dynamic tempos and superfast guitar solos, but the first thing that becomes apparent is how wholly disgusting, dirty, filthy it all is. The difference, of course, is that for new bands it is a gimmick, while for Autopsy it was merely a way to drive a song forward with a little twist. "Slaughterday", "In the Grip of Winter", and "Dead" are all very reminiscent to Black Sabbath and other doom influences. GEOFF TATE - "Relentless"-Album für April angekündigt, APOCALYPTICA, EPICA - Neue "The Epic Apocalypse Tour"-Termine für 2022 bekannt, "Metalgelöt": Sendung über die besten Metal-Albumcover ist online, DEE SNIDER - Aufnahmen des neuen Studioalbums haben begonnen, SUBTERRANEAN MASQUERADE - 'Ascend'-Video enthüllt, SEETHER - 'Bruised And Bloodied'-Video ist online, STÄLKER - 'Sentenced To Death'-Video veröffentlicht, BROILERS - "Puro Amor"-Album kommt Ende April, SYSTEM OF A DOWN - 'Genocidal Humanoidz'-Videopremiere und Livestream-Event am 30. Let me break it down for you: an unimaginative riff which doesn't draw you in at all leads to some stock drumming and Chris Reifert's indistinct belch sounding somehow worse here than on any other song. As opposed to the generic Slayerisms you hear in most bands of this sort (wank on that whammy bar for all yer worth between uninspired bursts of random atonal notes--leave that to Slayer, guys), the solo in say, "Robbing The Grave" leaves the average death metal idiot in the dust. After releasing their debut, Autopsy seemed to have reached their prime rather quickly. In the slower parts it is either standard doom metal riffs with heavy powerchords that sloooooowly moves the music forward, or Black Sabbath inspired riffs where two guitars play a melody, one light and one dark. Really creepy shit. 91%) Songs; Lineup; Other versions; Reviews; Additional notes; 1. Autopsy didn't jump up to sound like bands pumped out of New York or Tampa. , POSSESSED Chris, ihr hättet euch besser mal vom guten, alten Scotti produzieren lassen sollen, denn da wäre mehr aus "Mental Funeral" geworden. This, I think, kept their originality flowing. Autopsy is in control and has you in their grasp, and they’re a bit too deranged to properly answer your shrieked pleas for mercy in ways that don’t involve blunt objects and holes torn in skin. This phase has since then died out (although I still enjoy Autopsy). Check the title track if you want a ton morbidity in 37 seconds of arpeggios. There are plenty of mesmerizing back and forth higher noted interlude like pieces, where the hi-hat will count off or use the tom drums as a ritualistic technique. The way 'Twisted Mass of Burnt Decay' segues into 'In the Grip of Winter' is like a masterful directorial cut behind two tales of the macabre. The bass is not too noticeable, mainly due to the guitar's overall riff dominance, but does give a nice low end to Autopsy's sound. From the crushing opening of Twisted Mass of Burnt Decay to the slowly dripping clean notes of the final track, the music stands in a league of its own; this is one of those albums that you will never find boring. Mental Funeral pervades the deepest trenches of the human mind, bringing to light hideous, gruesome thoughts every modern citizen wishes to calmly placate and never admit exist. Which makes the most vicious homicidal maniac, in the act, look like a choir boy. 'Fleshcrawl' is probably the most ominous and sinister piece of music this side of Goblin's 'Suspiria'. I went through this brief Autopsy phase recently, and during these phases I go through where I like a band a lot, I'll listen to all of their material and purchase albums. Even though anyone with ears worth their salt loves Autopsy, it's safe to say that a fair few people - even those who were death metal fans otherwise -​would have listened to this and have thought "What the hell is wrong with these sickos?". Ironically, one of the most enjoyable moments on the album for me is "Hole in the Head", the only time that the band successfully melds prog rock and death metal, featuring a cool instrumental outro with *gasp* technical guitars. I mean, for my ears, the answer is a resounding yes. , TRIPTYKON Released 22 April 1991 on Peaceville (catalog no. Other highlights of Mental Funeral include epic Hole In The Head with its creepy dual harmony riff serving as a bookend to 5 minutes of absolute misery, both fast & slow. It's not just this albums fans, either, I think Mental Funeral exists in that brilliant place where it's a sonic ​experience that will just have to provoke a strong reaction from any listener. WHY DID THEY DO THIS?!? Apparently famous 4-stringer Steve DiGorgio played bass on Autopsy’s debut and an EP following this album, but Cutler certain makes due here and DiGorgio is hardly missed at all. To that extent, I have to credit Californians Autopsy for their predilection towards some of the most lewd, disgusting death metal in history, well in advance of the present tendencies. It sure was different from many of the other acts in the genre that I listen to, because they never try to be the fastest, most brutal and technical band in the world. Played it a few times and actually disliked it. Autopsy crafts a very specific, very enjoyable and very dirty, disgusting atmosphere on Mental Funeral, and this most noticeable aspect of the album. Not only is this a classic album from an era of music so influential, but this is also the best representation of Autopsy's sound. They clearly recorded both songs in one go, so they went the extra mile to splice the audio file right at the end of the song when the acoustic guitar comes in and slap it on the album as a new track that's 38 seconds long. Their tone is crushingly heavy but still being clean enough to make out what is being played which is a feature of this album that makes it so great. The grotesque “Slaughter Day” is very good with down tempo and thrashy restarts. Both guitars often work in unison and at other times place the accent mark at the end of riffs. His tom drum chops are a cool feature with the slower moving riffs. It's not like it's even the same tempo as the electric guitar that concludes "Dark Crusade." Review Autopsy 4 The Headless Ritual. The weird bridge in the forest in Evil Dead. The band just took a step further into their own magical world of putrefaction, funerals and horror and left all known early death metal dogma’s and boundaries for what they were. Bands wie Deep Purple, Rainbow, Whitesnake und vor allem Led Zeppelin werden extrem geschmackssicher zitiert und lassen „Locked & Loaded“ zur perfekten Scheibe für den heimischen Spieleabend (bei welcher Band habe ich das schon mal ähnlich gehört?) Eventually I had a discussion with Corinne from Acrostichon about this album. Twisted Mass of Burnt Decay is a superb opener, one of Autopsy’s quicker songs, even including a brief, but ripping solo. Reifert can also keep a great beat and allow the rotting atmosphere to build on tracks like, "Robbing the Grave" and "Torn from the Womb". Building on the underlined doom influences of the previous album, Autopsy takes their music in a new and refreshing direction and creating one of the finest doom/death albums out there. In the late 60s and 70s, Hammer, Amicus and Tigon studios produced these great portmanteau films, that were usually around four separate stories that sometimes had one interlinking theme. The 2000 copies pressing was gone by 2011. Mental Funeral competed intentionally, or possibly unintentionally and uncaring to various other death metal groups, and would prove a more than worthy second album. Track listing. It would be diverse and delightfully uncanny. Broken, jagged teeth sticking out at unnatural angles, twitching claws ready to lash out without the slightest provaction. Review by sonictheplumber USER (116 Reviews) July 31st, 2020 | 16 replies. 2 people found this helpful. "Destined to Fester" is another of the band's timeless and catchy death/doom pieces, with a lot of groove to it that creates a dire and welcome mirror to the eminent, emerging grunge and doom scenes of the 90s. Mental Funeral is a must own for anyone who calls themselves a fan of death metal. This album is almost two decades old, and it still mops the floor with all other death metal released in the succeeding years. And it's not only impressive that he has this range, but that he does both very well. And "Mental Funeral" was their apex performance. Mix doom and death, death and punk, whatever. Much of this album is very doomy and sludgy, cutting most death metal tempos in half. When you lie on some bodies, blood comes out of their mouth, and the weight of my body pushes it out. Mental Funeral took on a darker edge since the debut, as well as added many different engaging characteristics to their aura. Along with Reifert's great vocal delivery he really shows his skill behind the kit. "Twisted Mass of Burnt Decay" is a writhing, hardcore/death pounder in the vein of Sweden's Entombed, while "In the Grip of Winter" expands upon the doom and groove of the previous year's EP Retribution for the Dead, possessed of some evil, repulsive morbidity to die for. Mit „The Ghost Xperiment - Illumination“ setzen VANDEN PLAS die zweiteilige Konzeptstory über Gideon Grace fort, eine episch-knifflige Erzählung über ein übersinnliches Experiment, einen Geist und seine Inkarnation. A true death metal classic. A lot of the riffs can be quite primitive sounding at times, using only a few techniques. This album is highly recommended to anyone who jams out to Sabbath every now and then. I do vaguely remember one Eric Cutler song which sounded about as original as a track by Drake, but that's about it. Report abuse. Ever since the late 80s he has used a surprisingly low, brutal voice that comes off rather ahead of its time: there is no mistaking him for the shrieking of Chuck Schuldiner or Cronos-isms of Jeff Becerra. The lead guitar of Mental Funeral is immensely enjoyable and composed quite well, resulting in many memorable melodies that further boost this album’s overall effect on the listener. With death’n’roll I don’t want to say “last Entombed” because there are a lot of differences. The "your move" style soloing also adds some fun to the album, as Coralles and Cutler share solo moments like a 90s RPG and finish with a bang every time) Screw the critics. For instance the label they shared for many years, Peaceville, was bringing bands to life that were apart from the crowd. My arguments were swept from the table and it all came down to personal taste. It is strange and disgusting, full of horrid doom and sludge but still entirely amazing death metal. 2009, CD, Peaceville Records (Remastered), 2011, CD + DVD, Peaceville Records (Slipcase, 20th anniversary edition, Remastered). Natürlich gibt es darüber hinaus etliche Passagen, die aufhorchen lassen. Perhaps it’s the product of imagination of a serial killer, or maybe it’s borne of some Lovecraftian interdimensional time warp phooey. , DESASTER Autopsy play fucking brutal and sick; the tempos change so many times and in a song like “Twisted Mass Of Burnt Decay” we can have up tempo or doomy, rotten mid paced parts. Mental Funeral leans in a wholly opposite direction to artists like Pestilence or Death, whose goals were to transcend the brutality of their roots, or transport them on a generational starship into the unknown. The strange hue that blood achieves after having fallen down to meet the already sodden earth. , NIGHT DEMON - »Gott will das nicht« I hardly payed attention to Severed Survival, the one that everyone loses their shit over, and I never touched Shitfun because I had listened to it once already, and tried a second, but I could not stand it. Autopsy went from a raw, thrash oriented sound to a more dark and ugly quality. Even with their influence looming over countless bands (particularly the early swedish scene bands, i.e. Severed Survival made its spin every few months when I was in the mood. (RH 365, 2017), NAPALM DEATH It is intricate in thought, but the riffs add more atmosphere than technicalities. Reifert doesn't just have that constant style of drumming people tend to make their signature and his variety is in a way his own signature. View credits, reviews, tracks and shop for the 2017 Gatefold Vinyl release of Mental Funeral on Discogs. Crude, nihilistic, and brilliant. as always, so no comment there. , AUTOPSY HM-2 March 31, 2014 Report; They repressed the record. Label: Peaceville Records. It was completely different from all other death metal happening in ’91. In unserer ausführlichen Titelstory hat Matthias ja bereits jedes Album-Detail mit der Lupe untersucht, fehlt eigentlich nur noch ein Resümee eines anderen Autoren, um den Gesamteindruck abzurunden. It's an explosion of noise in the best possible way, an exhilarating way, and such misleading bullshit as a start to this album. Tracks wie ´Devil With An Angel Smile´ oder das orientalische Einflüsse verarbeitende ´Magic Woman Chile´ (´Kashmir´, anyone?) These screams give the album some variety and amazing atmosphere. These are the kind of things that makes Autopsy happy. Type: Full-length Release date: April 22nd, 1991 Catalog ID: VILE 25CD / VILE 25 CD Label: Peaceville Records Format: CD Reviews: 18 reviews (avg. The problem is, horror films simply aren't 70 to 120 minutes of rape scenes or brutal violence and gore. This new style is perfect for this doom style on this record. "Dead" might as well be a mere instrumental for all the few vocal lines we are granted, but it's another slow, methodic crusher. The guitar tone takes the monstrosity that was Severed Survival and brings it to its logical conclusion, promptly stabs it in the gut and goes even further. Steve's brother Eric Cutler as well as Danny Coralles bring the heavy doom riffs for this record. There's kissing, of course, caressing, blood drinking, the smell, the attraction… On the other hand, the excellent closer “Dark Crusade” is bookended by the fast, violent and furious “Bonesaw” and the morbid and macabre title track, which flawlessly uses Autopsy unique sense of melody to end this gory, bloody masterpiece of death metal. Talking about the words. Ich bin bestimmt kein Typ, der ausschließlich auf Geschwindigkeit steht, aber wenn eine Death Metal-Band langsame Sachen spielt, sollte sie auch in der Lage sein, diese entsprechend umsetzen zu können. Slow, melodic and with spoken words. Every song has some up tempos filled with doomy parts and weird, reek lead riffs. Review Autopsy All Tomorrow's Funerals. Autopsy were masters of their (lack of) craft. Culter shines on some nice breaks on, "Torn from the Womb" and "Destined to Fester" that bring a dramatic suspense to the songs. Alles in allem aber ohne Zweifel: gekommen, um zu bleiben. The flow of the drums (the rolls and blasts on the kit are fluent, powerful, and more human than mechanical., It's love of the dead… Like the character Two-Face from Batman. 2. AUTOPSY haben auf „Mental Funeral“ entdeckt, wie schwer und zermürbend, wie erdrückend und düster ein Riff sein kann, wenn man es kriechend langsam spielt. Tracks are very different, yet all retain a doom-y nature to them. Shifting from the more raucous scene to the midwestern corpulent man, shifting corpses in mid-winter. AllMusic Review by Eduardo Rivadavia At a time when many of his band's better-known contemporaries ( Death , Sepultura , Morbid Angel , etc.) With overall later releases, I think it was hard to top M.F. Das Highlight des Albums ist diesmal also eine Ballade! Even Black Sabbath wasn't all that great at making moments like this scary. I hate how at the very end of this album, they don't just combine "Dark Crusade" and "Mental Funeral" into one track called "Dark Crusade/Mental Funeral," or maybe "Dark Crusade." But they also evoke a fair share of variation throughout the track list that ensures the primacy of the material will never bore the listener. As well as spew out many different indescribable noises. With the bad part of this album out of the way, let's get on with what's great about this record. Fleshcrawl 04. Egal, ob man nun beispielsweise „The Tomb Within“, „Acts Of The Unspeakable“ oder „Mental Funeral“ als Vergleich ranzieht, es finden sich an jedem Ende und jeder Ecke Parallelen und Wiedererkennungspunkte. Genres: Death Metal. You'll find more than a chug-a-thon or a horse race [galloping type riffs in the vein of Entombed and Unleashed] on this album. For its time, I'm sure that first album certainly was, with the title track reasonably retaining a feeling of fear after all these years, but most metal just rocks too hard and just owns to be truly terrifying. , INQUISICION Spielzeit: 00:37:54. Das Problem an "Mental Funeral" ist, daß die Jungs hier stellenweise versuchen, wie St. Vitus zu klingen, und dieses Experiment geht mächtig in die Hose. I bought one of the last ones directly from Peaceville. Es gehört eine Menge Mut dazu, gerade jetzt an Optimismus, Zuversicht und Selbstbewusstsein zu appellieren. Read honest and unbiased product reviews from our users. Die Beethoven-Adaptionen in ´Symphony Of Pain´ sind irre lässig integriert, das abschließende, Klassik-inspirierte Instrumental ´Samson And Delilah´ fungiert als mehrstimmiger Ohrenschmaus. Mental Funeral has an extremely raw sound, but there is absolutely zero mud to be found on these serial killer boots. The variety of riffs (doom, death, groove, blues, classic rock, as mentioned before the variety makes the spice of this album. ​Whether or not you consider this album a reaction to the increasingly 'professional' sound death metal bands were ​incorporating at the time (personally, I think Autopsy just exist in their own little world), I still think it's possible that this album's sound and style would disturb people ​who liked, say, Human and Arise. This actually does sound like it was recorded in a basement in the woods between cannibal sprees, not out of some pretentious punk rock ethos, but it's just what you do when you're this fucked in the head. It just didn’t get it. Rather than making its impact through memorable riffs (not to say that there aren’t any – check Slaughterday or Dark Crusade for proof) or killer songwriting, Autopsy succeed by creating a genuinely horrific atmosphere. Probably the least imaginative ways of describing death and therefore a perfect contrast to the rest of Autopsy’s messy lyrical content. Line-Up: Chris Reifert – Schlagzeug, Gesang Eric Cutler – Gitarre Danny Coralles – Gitarre Steve Cutler – Bass. oder ´They Come Alive´, mal sind´s die im positiven Sinne beinahe klebrigen Refrain-Hooks wie in ´There Will Be Blood´ oder ´The Flamekeeper´, die Energie injizieren und dabei eine angenehme Nachhaltigkeit vermitteln, die lediglich in den ruhigsten Momenten, am Anfang des Titeltracks zum Beispiel, ein wenig wankt, dann, wenn Frontmann Miika Kokko tatsächlich eher wie King Diamond mit Rückenschmerzen tönt und nicht wie der stolze Warrior von nebenan, dem man ein teures Priest-Bootleg blind abkaufen würde. That's where the fun ends, though. Man muss gut auch einfach mal gut sein lassen. A series of images: I understand that this is allegedly a legendary death metal album but if you want quality death metal and quality Autopsy then listen to the debut, or any other earlier release. Auch Wolf Hoffmann hat seine Erfahrungen in dieser Hinsicht gemacht, und selbst ACCEPT haben Alben im Giftschrank, die heute keinen mehr interessieren. Mehr Classic-Rock-Einflüsse als beim Albumvorgänger „Raised On Rock“ hat die Band diesmal an Bord und orientiert sich hörbar an den ganz Großen des Genres. The snare drum sound is like a can, so raw and good. After debut Severed Survival, which was excellent, Autopsy charged themselves with furthering their brand of sludgy Death Metal, and with Mental Funeral they did just that. ​ Well, I’m trivialising of course but the point is, I couldn’t ‘get’ why a full length album on a ‘big’ label could sound like this. Just as much of a case could be made for Mental Funeral as a doom metal classic as death, because a large portion of the material crawls along like a convocation of Pentagram, Black Sabbath and old school Paradise Lost. Tracklist: 01. This progressivism rapes the album everywhere, the band taking the long winded route, but keeping the songs short so we are left with works of no real substance. Postfach 11 02 12 Easily makes some of the top moments on the album.) Dead is more or less an quasi instrumental akin to Wake Up Dead, with a severe deficiency in technicality and a surplus of terror and even groove. A corpulent man shifting bodies through the snow in some midwestern frozen hell. Review Autopsy 3 Macabre Eternal. Wertung: 0/7. Bassist Steve Cutler has a few highlighted moments in “Torn From the Womb” and “Destined to Fester”, and the generally low-tuned sound of the strings in all Autopsy releases is ideally displayed on this album. Every moment of it is immensely enjoyable and fairly memorable, and the masterful summation of all the band’s talents that is “In the Grip of Winter” testifies to this best. The tone is great, very clean and floppy making for an overall reasonable tone and playing on this album. "Mental Funeral" itself a haunting outro with some clean guitars, that also would have been appreciated were it expanded. Gooseflesh guaranteed! From the fast-paced and quickly performed "Twisted Mass of Burnt Decay" to the sludgy and doom-laden "Torn From the Womb", there's something for everyone. Find helpful customer reviews and review ratings for Mental Funeral at I make love to them… After a few doomy time changes, we're confronted with what is quite possibly the most effective "clean" breakdown of all time at 2:46. Es ist nicht alles Gold, was glänzt, die Spur des Gewöhnlichen und bereits Gehörten windet sich ebenfalls durch die Platte. There's a difference between fucking and making love. Zeichenerklärung: Unsere Genre-Icons in der Übersicht. The death/doom element definitely gives it a very unusual, eerie and creepy vibe. 5.0 out of 5 stars Five Stars. Und auch musikalisch knüpft das Album mit seinen vor allem überlangen Kompositionen nahtlos an die Qualität des Vorgängers an, der musikalisch und strukturell sogar häufig an die Bandphase Ende der Neunziger erinnerte, als man im Fahrwasser von Dream Theater den Durchbruch schaffte. Here, however, they are simply adding another twist to the tale. Gary Steve awoke from his coma. So überbrücken AUTOPSY mit dem 2012er Release „All Tomorrow’s Funerals“ für mich ganze 21 Jahre Bandgeschichte. The bass is rather low on this record than I would like, but doesn't cause much of a problem when the focus is much more on guitar. “Hole in the Head” is possibly my favorite song here, thanks in no small part to that brilliant melody that both opens and closes the song. The drums clatter, the guitars grind, and the bass thumps – no pro-tools here - and of course, there’s nary a melodic chorus in sight. This aesthetic is actually taken one further with "Hole in the Head", one of my favorite Autopsy tracks hand down for its swaggering, restless melodies. The production is very essential but also clean. And the whole thing works marvelously: the end result makes Mental Funeral an enormous, sludgy death metal masterpiece that almost crosses into death/doom territory, considering their penchant for slower riffs contrasting against the upbeat and midpaced sections. Wenn man die Namen „Severed Survival” oder „Mental Funeral“ fallen lässt, so weiß ein jeder Death-Metal-Fan sofort, dass es um die Legende AUTOPSY … Refer to "Robbing The Grave", "Slaughterday" (the music anyway), "Twisted Mass of Burnt Decay", and "Dark Crusade", among others, for highlghts. And then we have "In the Grip of Winter", showcasing the band messing around with doom, and then nothing of interest until tracks 8 and 9. Und mit ´The Best Is Yet To Come´ liefert Mark Tornillo inmitten einer grässlichen Pandemie den schönsten Text seiner Karriere. Reifert literally sounds like a horrible demon from hell spewing lyrics about death, gore, and perversion before it was cool to do so. Personally, I was not a huge fan of the three shorter vignettes here. Mental Funeral › Customer reviews; Customer reviews. In it Gary saw a disfigured face. The vocals are in fact exceptional, but despite the hypnotic drum beat, I just found the guitar riffs here to be overall lacking. Chris Reifert picked up on this immediately and launched Mental Funeral, where each track is its own brutal story. This outstrips the barbaric bludgeoning (a Cannibal Corpse reference, sue me) of their crude yet effective first album in spades. in creative energy. The nicely gapped doom metal riffs on "Hole in the Head" and "Dead" make this album last enough to be savored, but not too far as to become boring. That is the strength of my distaste. Autopsy first called it quits in 1995. Hoffmanns präzises, schön nach vorne gespieltes Gitarrenwerk (Titeltrack!) The end of it provides a huge amount of emotion and energy with a wild chaotic guitar solo... the build-up is perfect. Irgendjemand muss die Fahne des klassischen Heavy Metal hochhalten. The riffing is amazing on this album with songs like, "Dead", "Destined to Fester", and "Dark Crusade". The sound engineering (everything about this album's sound engineering is amazing: the balance of treble, mid, and bass on the guitars, the pungent sound of the bass, the minimalist [and by that I mean lack of 100% focus on the snare and kick-drums] focus on the drums which are still audible but don't dominate the sound like most drums do) I don't hear it on this and the result is great because there's never a dull moment in the album. The lyrics are all terrifying and disgusting as any good death should be. Generell kann man sagen, daß AUTOPSY hier definitiv einen Rückwärtsschritt getan haben. Most metal songs and albums, if they do convey a feeling of horror, manage to feel more like horror trailers than actual films; intense sequences designed to bait the audience into wanting the full feature. 5 star 74% 4 star 14% ... autopsy is one of the most important band of death metal, and this is the most brutal death metal album Helpful. , CANDLEMASS The doom heaviness of “Dead” is broken by the beginning up tempo of “Robbing the Graves” that turns from fast to doom style. "Torn from the Womb" has a great echoing multi-voice part that sounds like it was being recorded in a murky cave and supplied from the monster from the album cover. Hear the hideous doom and gloom that opens up “Torn From the Womb”; the lead is tense and worrisome, and the verses switch between a crushing, bouncy rhythm and that miserable lead again, with a few unprecedented bursts of speed to remind you THAT THE KILLER IS RIGHT BEHIND YOU! Review Autopsy The Tomb Within. , VADER What sets Autopsy apart from the crowd is that Reifert & Co. never concentrated on one gimmick (technicality, “brutality”, speed, lack thereof, or what have you) but directed all of their energies into solid songwriting, employing whatever elements they thought proper. There are a few early era Sabbath influences here on the guitars. ​ Autopsy has been a band that often has a horror-like edge associated to their music. Reifert's vocals (his range is inhuman, going from a rotten grunt to a shriek in a matter of milliseconds. 4.5 out of 5 stars. When you venture to such extreme realms as death metal, it's almost a sign of wimping out to attempt something like that musically.
