Autopsy is back with their first new record since 2014, Morbidity Triumphant. The record is due out on September 30 and is the band's first effort with new bassist Greg Wilkinson. "The moment has finally arrived for a new full length Autopsy album to slither out into the public and people will have to deal with it," said vocalist and drummer Chris Reifert. "Buckle up, it's a raw, rough and ugly ride!"
Morbidity Triumphant was recorded at Opus Studios with longtime engineer Adam Munoz at the helm, and was mastered by Ken Lee. The cover art was created by the talented Wes Benscoter (Slayer, Bloodbath), which of course Reifert is stoked about.
"Wes delivered another stunner. What a maniac!" said Reifert. "We didn't give him much to work with as usual. I think, maybe, just a couple of song titles and themes maybe and his imagination did most of the work. The album title came along after the fact. After having our minds blown by Wes' art we arrived at Morbidity Triumphant which seemed to fit the theme of the painting as well as the way we feel about the state of the band in general. We've been working hard at our sick craft with zero compromise and it seems we're still hitting our stride somehow."
