West Coast death metal pioneer, Autopsy, will release its 22-track collection of re-mastered classics and rarities, All Tomorrow’s Funerals, tomorrow on Peaceville Records. The band has teamed up with Pitchfork.com to stream “Mauled To Death,” a vintage Autopsy track that will finally surface from the tomb as part of this monstrous album.
“’Mauled to Death’ is the last song from the early days that never got a proper album treatment, since it was only recorded on a 1987 demo,” said Autopsy drummer/vocalist, Chris Reifert, in a chat with Pitchfork. “Now it's got the double guitar laceration attack (the original version was from before [guitarist] Danny [Coralles] joined the band), as well as some added atmospheric guitar ugliness.”

All Tomorrow’s Funerals will contain re-mastered versions of all of Autopsy’s past EP’s - everything from ‘Retribution For The Dead’ to the now sold-out ‘The Tomb Within’ - plus four newly recorded tracks.
Renowned artist, Matt Cavotta, has supplied the cover art, while all original artwork and liner notes will also be included in this massive collection.

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.
