Sandwiched nicely between Boards Of Canada and James Blake, lies a brand new slice of flithy doom and death from genre titans Autopsy. NPR may not be the first place I think of when I think ‘death metal’ but still they’ve been providing a great service over the last year and a bit, premiering a whole plethora of new metal tracks, the latest being ‘Arch Cadaver‘, which you can hear right here.
Taken from their upcoming new album The Headless Ritual, ‘Arch Cadaver‘ is exactly the sort of track you would want to give an insight into the album — it just contains everything that you could possibly want from Autopsy; filthy riffs, soul-destroying doom and atmosphere that is tar thick. Long time fans will be happy to know, it’s looking like their official return in Macabre Eternal wasn’t a one-off or a lucky shot and for those of you that haven’t given these legends the time they deserve, then get to it, you mug.
The Headless Ritual rears it’s headless head on the 24th of June through Peaceville.
