Autopsy - Unveil New Album Cover Art And More

A new Autopsy album already? Yes, it's happening. And less than a year after the release of The Headless Ritual. The US death metal legends have completed work on their seventh studio album, to be titled Tourniquets, Hacksaws & Graves, and set to be unleashed on April 21st (April 29th in the US) through Peaceville Records. The juicy cover art is now available and you can feast your eyes on it here.

Tourniquets, Hacksaws & Graves was recorded at Fantasy Studios with producer Adam Munoz, and sees a continuation of Autopsy's pursuit of the ultimate in metallic horror and extremity, featuring the longstanding combo of Eric Cutler and Danny Coralles on guitars, Joe Trevisano on bass and Chris Reifert on drums/vocals.

The band says: "TOURNIQUETS TIGHTEN...HACKSAWS RIP...GRAVES ARE FILLED...THIS IS AUTOPSY, THIS IS DEATH METAL...With the stench of The Headless Ritual still permeating the befouled air, Autopsy has once again come for your very metal soul with their newest blood soaked homage to all things dark, twisted and horrific...once again bone crushingly heavy nightmares await...Tourniquets, Hacksaws & Graves will awaken the most depraved part of the coldest zombie's stare...blood will flow, brains will be destroyed, coffin lids will be opened..."

The artwork comes courtesy of Wes Benscoter, who was also previously responsible for the Macabre Eternal album cover.

Barely even had a chance to breathe after their last release, now they're releasing more gold within less than a year.

I far prefer Macabre E's cover, but this Wes guy's clearly fairly talented. Actually, I've still never even once listened to this band...
