The long-awaited 2022 full-length return of the US death metal pioneers for a new bout of supreme sickness.
Morbidity Triumphant, Autopsy’s eighth album, is a dark delight for seasoned and new listeners alike, with a raw organic sound perfectly encapsulating what makes the band so unique among its peers, for what could easily be considered one of its strongest offerings to date.
The driving force of Autopsy as ever is the virtuoso guitar pairing of Eric Cutler and Danny Coralles, effortlessly trading off their schizophrenic leads and switching from all-out death metal madness to groove-laden heavy doom, with unmistakable drum/vocal legend Chris Reifert being master of proceedings, spewing his own infinitely creative maniacal musings. ‘Morbidity Triumphant’ also notably marks the first album to feature new bassist Greg Wilkinson, currently also seen in Static Abyss along with Chris.
Morbidity Triumphant was recorded at Opus Studios, with long-associated engineer Adam Munoz at the helm. Mastering was completed by Ken Lee.
