One of the early death metal acts, & no stranger to controversy over the years, Autopsy formed in 1987 in San Francisco, & released 4 albums on Peaceville Records before disbanding in 1995. Autopsy subsequently re-emerged after an almost 15-year hiatus with the 'The Tomb Within' EP, leading to a string of high-calibre releases, showing none of the fire had been extinguished, & continuing a longstanding & lasting legacy.

The band features legendary drummer Chris Reifert, who began his recording career with US metal greats, Death, before taking on the unusual duty of handling drums & vocals for Autopsy, alongside longstanding riff-masters Eric Cutler & Danny Coralles.

Autopsy has influenced a whole generation of extreme metal bands, from Entombed & Dismember to Darkthrone. 'Severed Survival' is rightly hailed as one of death metal's finest releases; a completely rotten & uncompromising sound full of dirty, sludgy, death & doom metal mixed with repulsive tales of death & disease, festering ears & minds for 35 years.

This special 35th anniversary limited pressing of Autopsy's seminal debut is presented on red/black gore marble vinyl, including four-page booklet with a new in-depth interview with the band conducted by Dennis Dread. The 'Severed Survival' anniversary is marked by two versions; one featuring the original controversial "hooks" cover artwork (Kent Mathieu) which was initially banned, & also a version containing the replacement "surgeons" cover (Kev Walker).
