Autopsy Conducted at 1720: Guttural Californian death metal icons Autopsy formed when Chris Reifert left Floridian pioneers Death and set up his own project. And didn’t he do well! The 1989 album Severed Survival picks up where his former band left off, and they put out the excellent Morbidity Triumphant just last year. Go see, but be prepared for the brutality. Necrot, Mortiferum, Deathgrave, and Mortal Wound also perform.

In a 2011 piece, writer Jason Roche noted, “From 1987 to 1995, Autopsy played everything from cranked-out, coked-up goregrind to doped-up, slow-crawling doom metal. Getting back together to record two new tracks for a reissue of their 1989 debut Severed Survival in 2008 inspired a permanent reunion. Macabre Eternal, their first studio album in sixteen years, was released earlier this year.”

They’ve only gotten stronger!

Autopsy Conducted at 1720: The event takes place at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, May 13 1720.
