5 HOURS ON THE RISE, DEATH & RE-BIRTH OF THE U.S GORELORDS WITH EXTENSIVE DOCUMENTARY, STUDIO & REHEARSAL FOOTAGE, PLUS LIVE TRACKS FROM AUTOPSY’S 2010 RE-UNION SHOWS.
From the macabre tomb of Bay Area death metal pioneer, Autopsy, comes an unrivaled insight into its world of gore and horror in the form of a new DVD, Born Undead, due for release on August 27th.
The “Born Undead” DVD charters the birth, death & rebirth of the legends with an extensive documentary conducted with the band themselves, as they describe how the beast came to be, & the impact their music has had on the metal world over a span of more than 20 years. The film also documents the band’s long-awaited return to the studio & stage, & includes rehearsals of both new tracks & old classics for their live comeback assault. The trio of 2010 reunion shows are all featured here, with all the best classic tracks from Maryland Deathfest, PartySan festival & also Hole in the Sky in Norway, where the trio of Chris Reifert, Eric Cutler, & Danny Coralles were joined by Dan Lilker on bass.
With 5 hours of footage overall, as well as extras including the band’s promo video for “All Tomorrow’s Funerals,” “My Corpse Shall Rise” and more, Born Undead is the ultimate set for all Autopsy and metal maniacs alike.
The DVD also contains artwork from Kent Mattieu, who had collaborated with the band on its early classic (and often controversial) album covers.
One of the early breed of US death metal acts, and most respected names in the genre, Autopsy formed in 1987 in San Francisco, and released four albums on Peaceville Records – beginning with the classic debut Severed Survival in 1989 – before disbanding in 1995 with members going on to form Abscess.
Autopsy triumphantly and officially returned from the grave after a 15-year hiatus with the 2010 EP, ‘The Tomb Within,’ delighting critics and fans alike.
The band then released its fifth full length, and first since 1995, Macabre Eternal, in 2011.
