Autopsy to Release comic book this Halloween
Bay Area death metal pioneer, Autopsy, and E-Comix are pleased to announce that Halloween 2012 will be ground zero for the release of "Autopsy: Feast For A Funeral," a fully-authorized comic book by one of the music industry's biggest names in metal.
"Autopsy has driven the hearse to bring death metal to the masses since the late 1980s," said E-Comix President and Publisher, Vince Brusio. "It was a natural fit to fuse their brand of music with a grisly ghost story. So we took the cover image of Severed Survival, expanded on it, and developed a story that takes place on Halloween night. It's pretty gory stuff. As it should be."
Vocalist/drummer for Autopsy, Chris Reifert, commented, "We're damn excited about this, and know it will be a real killer when it's done!"

Shown the cover and told the plot for the book at the 10th Anniversary Maryland Deathfest, Autopsy gave the green light for the project, which brings to life the band's brand of doom in a ferocious full-color nightmare.
The comic book tells the tale of college kids who make a terrible mistake. One for which they must suffer, and pay in blood. When they play with stolen property at an impromptu field party, they open a doorway that allows spirits into our material world. A rescue is planned, but none of this is made known to a rival biker gang that doesn't appreciate their turf trampled on by strangers. Seeking vengeance, the gang approach an old abandoned house to wreak havoc on their party crashers, and learn too late that once the door to Hell is opened it can't be closed.
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 and the extensive documentary, Born Undead, earlier this year.
