Autopsy – Skull Grinder

The masters of gore metal, Autopsy did for music what Herschell Gordon Lewis did for film. After leaving Death in 1987 when Chuck Schuldiner moved to Florida, drummer Chris Reifert formed an equally influential death metal band when he started Autopsy. The band’s first two records, 1989’s Severed Survival and 1991’s Mental Funeral, stand as heralded classics of the genre, sickening celebrations of blood-‘n’-guts, backwoods disembowelment, and cartoonish body horror. Whereas like-minded bands like Carcass approached topics of gore from a pseudo-medical standpoint, Autopsy got off on the sheer absurdity of how sick they could get.
