There are Cannibal Corpse albums less disturbing than this. Perhaps it’s the product of imagination of a serial killer, or maybe it’s borne of some Lovecraftian interdimensional time warp phooey. It's such a poor song that it required its own paragraph. They clearly recorded both songs in one go, so they went the extra mile to splice the audio file right at the end of the song when the acoustic guitar comes in and slap it on the album as a new track that's 38 seconds long. Genres: Death Metal. Damit vergeben AUTOPSY die Gelegenheit, eine Werkschau über die vergangenen Jahrzehnte und einen Best-of-Mix im Konzert-Gewand anzubieten. Autopsy didn't jump up to sound like bands pumped out of New York or Tampa. Reifert can also keep a great beat and allow the rotting atmosphere to build on tracks like, "Robbing the Grave" and "Torn from the Womb". Persönlich würde ich mir insgeheim etwas mehr Innovationskraft wünschen, gerne auch mal ein stilistisches Abschweifen dieser gestandenen Riege von Profi-Musikern (die jede Note mithilfe ihres Produzenten traumwandlerisch an die richtige Stelle platzieren) - wohl wissend, dass die meisten Fans das kaum goutieren würden. Along with Reifert's great vocal delivery he really shows his skill behind the kit. You have a mean, sinister goon side, and then the monstrous ugly, dark side; both faces coming from the same person. When you venture to such extreme realms as death metal, it's almost a sign of wimping out to attempt something like that musically. I liked Severed Survival. The lyrics are all terrifying and disgusting as any good death should be. Mental Funeral is a very odd album. 68 global ratings. Now I don´t have the time to describe the songs one by one, so I´ll try to describe how the whole record actually sound: Review zu The Headless Ritual von Autopsy. Mental Funeral (1991) Fiend for Blood (1991) Professional ratings; Review scores; Source Rating; AllMusic: Mental Funeral is the second album by Autopsy, released in 1991 by Peaceville Records. Of course, songs like “Slaughterday” and “Robbing the Grave” bring the riffs and bring them painfully hard, but Cutler and Coralles’ guitar leads are unexpectedly adept as well. Pure stillborn, slow-as-fuck dripping death metal insanity that must be heard by every metalhead; you’ll have to clean the blood and burnt flesh out of your ears with a spoon after hearing this. "Mental Funeral" itself a haunting outro with some clean guitars, that also would have been appreciated were it expanded. All the reasons I mentioned to dislike this album were exactly why she thought of this as an instant classic. Violent, twisted, disgusting shapes of an unknown origin. Postfach 11 02 12 Autopsy is a big name in death metal, but their Mental Funeral album rarely gets the credit it deserves as a classic. Er lebt, liebt und feiert All Things Metal so sehr und auf so charmant nerdige, ehrliche (und eitle) Art und Weise, dass man Primordials Alan „Nemtheanga“ Averills Nebenprojekte immer auch als zitatreiche Verneigung vor der Geschichte des Genres verstehen muss. After Autopsy's debut 89' release, which was going to be surrounded by many other avenues of upcoming thicker death metal sounds. Egal, ob man nun beispielsweise „The Tomb Within“, „Acts Of The Unspeakable“ oder „Mental Funeral“ als Vergleich ranzieht, es finden sich an jedem Ende und jeder Ecke Parallelen und Wiedererkennungspunkte. 3. 5 star 74% 4 star 14% ... autopsy is one of the most important band of death metal, and this is the most brutal death metal album Helpful. "Mental Funeral" is one of the best albums in doom/death or death metal in general and is a must have for anyone looking to explore doom or death metal genres. One has to feel the beauty of second rate horror movies. , AUTOPSY In it Gary saw a disfigured face. Review Autopsy 4 The Headless Ritual. Once again, the guitar tone is incredible, feeling as if it was hewn from the same wood as the axe of a murderous hillbilly psychopath, full of painful grains that churn beautifully against the organic flow of the percussion, but also taut in the execution of the groovy, verminous leads. With the nice riffs comes the grit and gloom that Autopsy is known for. Especially compared to the dark portrait displayed here on Mental Funeral. 4. It was clear autopsy had been a HUGE influence on the early Acrostichon sound. Nope, the thrilling sound of the Autopsy we know and love launches out of your speakers and grips you. Mental Funeral is the album that took me from love of Florida and New York bands like Cannibal Corpse and Deicide to every other genre of death metal and regions of the world that produce it. The collection of songs work as a whole piece and are beyond capable of standing on their own: the opening death gallop of "Twisted Mass Of Burnt Decay", to the unholy coupling of "Fleshcrawl" and "Torn From The Womb", the brilliant "Destined To Fester" and everything in between...All the best doomed out death metal riffs in the book combined with well placed bursts of speed. Review Autopsy Puncturing The Grotesque (EP) 8/10. The death/doom element definitely gives it a very unusual, eerie and creepy vibe. The guitar sound is great and thick: a simple death metal distortion that serves their sound perfectly. Slow, melodic and with spoken words. It even transcends that sub-genre and is just great metal, but it is certainly not for the faint of heart. The band just took a step further into their own magical world of putrefaction, funerals and horror and left all known early death metal dogma’s and boundaries for what they were. Originally written for Hiemsogt. This record is a masterpiece of pure death metal. Mehr Classic-Rock-Einflüsse als beim Albumvorgänger „Raised On Rock“ hat die Band diesmal an Bord und orientiert sich hörbar an den ganz Großen des Genres. There are a few early era Sabbath influences here on the guitars. Absolutely fucking brilliant. Sie sorgen auch dafür, dass man gar nicht darüber nachdenkt, dass ein flotter ACCEPT-Rocker wie ´Overnight Sensation´ im Grunde schon fünfmal geschrieben wurde. Die Zusammenarbeit mit Sänger Herbie Langhans dauerte nur ein Album lang, aber VOODOO CIRCLE-Fans dürfen sich darüber freuen, dass David Readmann (Pink Cream 69) zurückgekehrt ist. You really can't stay indifferent to the last minute of In the Grip of Winter up to and including Torn From the Womb. Reifert literally sounds like a horrible demon from hell spewing lyrics about death, gore, and perversion before it was cool to do so. Also, regarding the opener, I wonder if that is a nod to the Poe story, 'Hop Frog'? This album is almost two decades old, and it still mops the floor with all other death metal released in the succeeding years. 'Bonesaw' does something entirely different with its rampaging pace functioning as something akin to a chase scene through a ruinous house; the killer always gets what he wants. There is a multitude of little rhythmic tricks that initially go unnoticed, but as one realizes how seamlessly the odd time signatures and other such surprises are set in the bigger picture, it heightens the listening experience even further; an underlying complexity permeates an album created by some guys who just wanted to record “brutal shit”. Overthought and overdone - 41% “Hole in the Head” is possibly my favorite song here, thanks in no small part to that brilliant melody that both opens and closes the song. One of the sickest death album ever, but not recommended to those who search for speed here. From the crushing opening of Twisted Mass of Burnt Decay to the slowly dripping clean notes of the final track, the music stands in a league of its own; this is one of those albums that you will never find boring. So what of these non-abortion tracks then? I hate how at the very end of this album, they don't just combine "Dark Crusade" and "Mental Funeral" into one track called "Dark Crusade/Mental Funeral," or maybe "Dark Crusade." in creative energy. While this is partially an indication of the sorry state of modern death metal, it is also a testament to the immense, lasting power that Mental Funeral carries. Label: Peaceville Records. I mean, for my ears, the answer is a resounding yes. Much of this album is very doomy and sludgy, cutting most death metal tempos in half. A very spacious, doomy atmosphere that defines Autopsy. Reifert doesn't just have that constant style of drumming people tend to make their signature and his variety is in a way his own signature. Displaying great doom riffs, and amazing vocals as well as fantastic drumming. And Chris Reifert's vocals were more worthy of the term voKILLs, as he made a quantum leap in that realm between "Severed Survival" and this release. Iron Monkey and their ilk owe a clear debt, and one can even imagine acts as diverse as My Dying Bride and Darkthrone taking frantic notes on this wondrous platter of splatter, as it snaked its way through their speakers. Which had a much thicker death metal sound, and some of these bands were dropping 80's thrash influences as well. Bass is buried (no pun intended!) The riffs on this album are absolutely spectacular. He still uses a constant playing style with limited breaks. I can't really point out specific songs because aside from the ones I like I can't remember any of them, they just all blend into one lo-fi 90s death metal misfire. Mental Funeral is a must own for anyone who calls themselves a fan of death metal. ), they STILL have a sound that can't be confused with anyone else. , MARDUK The best part about this album is that you get all of this without the Scott Burns production that seemed to permeate most death metal around this time. Their own special brand of doom inspired death metal hits harder, heavier, and more sludgy than any other band in the time. Discover releases, reviews, credits, songs, and more about Autopsy - Mental Funeral at Discogs. Vielleicht am Ende sogar etwas zu viel für eine Top-Band. His tom drum chops are a cool feature with the slower moving riffs. They also probably had the resources to sound as technical, deep and brutal, or polished and sterile as they wanted, but opted to keep their sound as raw and non-conformed as possible. Is this the best death metal album? The guitar lines displayed here are more horror theme oriented. I don't hear it on this and the result is great because there's never a dull moment in the album. It sure was different from many of the other acts in the genre that I listen to, because they never try to be the fastest, most brutal and technical band in the world. The interlude song "Fleshcrawl" and its evolution into the intro of "Torn From the Womb" is a perfect example of this evil sound. Autopsy simply picked up where Severed Survival left off. And, in case you hadn't guessed, that's what Mental Funeral reminds me of. This new style is perfect for this doom style on this record. And it's not only impressive that he has this range, but that he does both very well. An almost shocking and blunt attitude. 0 Comment Report abuse Freddy Castro. The riffing is amazing on this album with songs like, "Dead", "Destined to Fester", and "Dark Crusade". I suppose, I should address a creeping elephant in the room. (10:17) Slaughterday06. I had to laugh the other day upon stumbling across a review for this album. "Twisted Mass of Burnt Decay" 2:15: 2. Bassist Steve Cutler has a few highlighted moments in “Torn From the Womb” and “Destined to Fester”, and the generally low-tuned sound of the strings in all Autopsy releases is ideally displayed on this album. , VADER Something I always found neat about Mental Funeral that helped it stand out are those bizarre little interludes found throughout the running time. Autopsy went from a raw, thrash oriented sound to a more dark and ugly quality. Every song has some up tempos filled with doomy parts and weird, reek lead riffs. The music did add a few more characteristics to their mix coming from Severed Survival to Retribution for the Dead and then Mental Funeral. No, this album has an atmosphere to it. Als Bonustrack hat man noch 'Krieg kennt keine Sieger' von Saltatio Mortis (!) Mein erster Gedanke zum Album war Anerkennung und Kritik zugleich: Es ist typisch ACCEPT. The way 'Twisted Mass of Burnt Decay' segues into 'In the Grip of Winter' is like a masterful directorial cut behind two tales of the macabre. What could go wrong? Und auch musikalisch knüpft das Album mit seinen vor allem überlangen Kompositionen nahtlos an die Qualität des Vorgängers an, der musikalisch und strukturell sogar häufig an die Bandphase Ende der Neunziger erinnerte, als man im Fahrwasser von Dream Theater den Durchbruch schaffte. And the whole thing works marvelously: the end result makes Mental Funeral an enormous, sludgy death metal masterpiece that almost crosses into death/doom territory, considering their penchant for slower riffs contrasting against the upbeat and midpaced sections. , MANTAR DREAD SOVEREIGN, Alans Vehikel für All Things Doom, liefern jetzt ihr drittes Vollalbum ab und haben dafür u.a. Screw the critics. The perfect thematic approach to songwriting, (ill)spirited performances and a production that enhances mood to such an extent that it becomes that auditory equivalent of seeing a very tangible ghost in your room. The variety of riffs (doom, death, groove, blues, classic rock, as mentioned before the variety makes the spice of this album. Wenn man die Namen „Severed Survival” oder „Mental Funeral“ fallen lässt, so weiß ein jeder Death-Metal-Fan sofort, dass es um die Legende AUTOPSY … Tel: +49 (0) 231-562014-0 Fax: +49 (0) 231-562014-33 E-Mail:, VANDEN PLAS - The Ghost Xperiment - Illumination, AUTOPSY - 'Maggots In The Mirror'-Live-Clip vom "Live In Chicago"-Album ist online, AUTOPSY - "Live In Chicago"-Album kommt Ende Oktober, OVERKILL What's more is the band approach instrumentals in an unusual manner, as well. Yes, its heavy-as-balls death metal with riffs all over the place, dynamic tempos and superfast guitar solos, but the first thing that becomes apparent is how wholly disgusting, dirty, filthy it all is. A song like "Twisted Mass of Burnt Decay" has a quicker punk aspect to them, but still bring much brutality. Autopsy have remained somewhat unsung heroes of the scene since splitting, but it’s not hard to trace the influences that this record must surely have had on bands like Entombed, who share Autopsy’s love of the demonic Slayer-esque split harmonies that pepper the album. The production quality is just enough to bring out the true nature of their sound: dirty and raw. After this album they put out the 'Fiend for Blood' EP which was half working, half not. It was in the form of this monster and was the result of enough factors to make the album cover a photograph of this thing if it ever breathed life and took shape. The drums clatter, the guitars grind, and the bass thumps – no pro-tools here - and of course, there’s nary a melodic chorus in sight. The first noticeable issue, aside from the terrible artwork which the band were right in their initial dislike of and should've commissioned something better, are the irksome short tracks. No budget, practically no special effects. Miserable pathetic death by hammering guitars are provided by Eric Cutler and Danny Coralles, and their guitar style is more or less of that of the necroguttural nebulous death/black/doom/thrash/bloody vomit stylings of Hellhammer and Celtic Frost, forced into a death metal medium like a fist into a corpse’s anus. The unsettling man on your street, the one whose eyes always seem to follow you, the one you only ever see at night. verbeugen sich knietief vor Led Zeppelin, während ´Eyes Full Of Tears´ oder ´Flesh & Bone´ perfekte Whitesnake-Ersatzdrogen geben. There are plenty of mesmerizing back and forth higher noted interlude like pieces, where the hi-hat will count off or use the tom drums as a ritualistic technique. Some clean moody clean guitar work is also present on the closing track, "Mental Funeral" which gives the album a great creepy ending that seems like something from a 80's horror flick. Musical integrity above all! And that sound, so basic and un-produced it seemed. Aside from "Hole in the Head" there are other, occasional good songs, but the trouble is that the Retribution for the Dead EP render this useless. You can sense even more imminent danger when each instrument slowly joins in every few bars, when all of a sudden at 3:16, you feel the chainsaw actually split your head open with Chris Reifert's unholy scream. Just as I feared would happen, Autopsy got above their station when conceiving their second album and follow up to the all-round enjoyable Severed Survival, trying to incorporate doom and prog rock moments into a confused, nightmarish mess of a sophomore. Line-Up: Chris Reifert – Schlagzeug, Gesang Eric Cutler – Gitarre Danny Coralles – Gitarre Steve Cutler – Bass. And since then Autopsy have always been about that. If it wasn’t such a cliché, I might say that Mental Funeral is the soundtrack to a film that’s not yet been made. That is a sound that would go on to inspire many bands such as Asphyx and Hooded Menace. Most clean breakdowns relax the pace or the listener, but almost none of them actually manage to raise the tension by doing more with less. With death’n’roll I don’t want to say “last Entombed” because there are a lot of differences. Kann man machen! Charming track really and still marvellous to this day. Mit „The Ghost Xperiment - Illumination“ setzen VANDEN PLAS die zweiteilige Konzeptstory über Gideon Grace fort, eine episch-knifflige Erzählung über ein übersinnliches Experiment, einen Geist und seine Inkarnation. "Dark Crusade" is a straight rager not unlike "Twisted Mass...", with incredibly churning and thick guitar tones that alternate between a grinding, d-beat momentum and neanderthal breakdowns. During my Autopsy phase, I fell in love with this album. Nach drei (natürlich im Rock Hard vorgestellten) Vinyl-Singles/EPs zwischen 2016 und 2019 (sowie der zusammenfassenden CD-only-Compilation „Past Of“) nun also das kurze, aber schmerzlose Full-length-Debüt der Finnen. Es gehört eine Menge Mut dazu, gerade jetzt an Optimismus, Zuversicht und Selbstbewusstsein zu appellieren. For instance, the rhythm will play a particular steady guitar line and then the lead might throw in a a few quick higher notes for flavor. Several groups with cross-genres, such as Doom, and Paradise Lost. Of course, the whole reason of being for a death metal is to relish in a morbid atmosphere and, simply put, I don't think there's a band on this planet who crafted an atmosphere quite as potently pungent and absolutely grim as Autopsy did on this album. Aber selbst wenn es mal nicht ganz so rund läuft, stehen da immer noch waschechte Metal-Kracher mit starken Slogans, die jeder Kuttenträger vor der Bühne mitsingen kann (´The Undertaker´, ´Not My Problem´, ´Sucks To Be You´). Januar, METALLICA - Kirk Hammett und Rob Trujillo covern 'White Wedding' und 'War Pigs'. We get a more overall slower sound, with the edges sanded and painted a dark, brooding grayish-black color. It was Autopsy's climatic peak with accumulated qualities. Why would they do this? Severed Survival made its spin every few months when I was in the mood. A man falling back on the sofa as auditory ​hallucinations of vile-hearted, tormenting laughter leaves him a wreck after he smokes the last of his cursed reefer. It was an album that stood out among the cesspool of Floridian death metal acts because of its grit and unusually brutal approach to death metal.

I hardly payed attention to Severed Survival, the one that everyone loses their shit over, and I never touched Shitfun because I had listened to it once already, and tried a second, but I could not stand it. Aber noch besser ist die zurückhaltende Art, wie er die Botschaft vermittelt. Was vor allem bedeutet, dass der Song und die Melodien an sich hier über allem stehen. I bought it because I knew Reifert from Death’s Scream Bloody Gore obviously and had one old Autopsy demo song somewhere on tape. The sound engineering (everything about this album's sound engineering is amazing: the balance of treble, mid, and bass on the guitars, the pungent sound of the bass, the minimalist [and by that I mean lack of 100% focus on the snare and kick-drums] focus on the drums which are still audible but don't dominate the sound like most drums do) Spouting out more shock and horror like approaches to their atmosphere. Severed Survival, although a classic in its own right, could not compare with the unrestrained (but intelligent) brutality of Mental Funeral. With overall later releases, I think it was hard to top M.F. Title Length; 1. "In the Grip of Winter" has a great vocal opening and a terrifying tortuous slow break in the middle. 'Fleshcrawl' is probably the most ominous and sinister piece of music this side of Goblin's 'Suspiria'. Other than riffs the solos are very fast and climactic. Then they put out the full length 'Acts of the Unspeakable'. A severed hand moving on its own like some deranged spider. Mental Funeral is a death metal music album recording by AUTOPSY released in 1991 on CD, LP/Vinyl and/or cassette. Where Autopsy's path took them was different, however. Like the character Two-Face from Batman. Other highlights of Mental Funeral include epic Hole In The Head with its creepy dual harmony riff serving as a bookend to 5 minutes of absolute misery, both fast & slow. HM-2 March 31, 2014 Report; They repressed the record. Culter shines on some nice breaks on, "Torn from the Womb" and "Destined to Fester" that bring a dramatic suspense to the songs. During these, he might not even use the hi-hat or ride, but instead utilize the cymbals for nod. Too many melodies played in a way others might call ‘inadequate’ or ‘almost out of key’. Read honest and unbiased product reviews from our users. His vocal style can be directly traced to that of Tom G. Warrior; just imagine the vocals of Satanic Rites with 7 years of advancing death metal brutality laid on them, and perhaps some decapitated genitals in Reifert’s mouth as well. , ABBATH Review. Track listing. That said, the core songs here are almost without exception incredible. Review Autopsy 3 Macabre Eternal. This, I think, kept their originality flowing. This release is a landmark; an extremely influential album that immortalizes Christ Reifert and his gang of amateur pathologists in the annals of history. Finally, I suppose this is listenable, after all it's only 38 minutes, but it isn't recommended. A masterpiece is exactly what this is: Autopsy’s sophomore album is a perfect demonstration of how excellent this genre can be. With the bad part of this album out of the way, let's get on with what's great about this record. Ironically, one of the most enjoyable moments on the album for me is "Hole in the Head", the only time that the band successfully melds prog rock and death metal, featuring a cool instrumental outro with *gasp* technical guitars. 2009, CD, Peaceville Records (Remastered), 2011, CD + DVD, Peaceville Records (Slipcase, 20th anniversary edition, Remastered). Catchy too by the way. Spielzeit: 00:37:54. This actually does sound like it was recorded in a basement in the woods between cannibal sprees, not out of some pretentious punk rock ethos, but it's just what you do when you're this fucked in the head. "Slaughterday", "In the Grip of Winter", and "Dead" are all very reminiscent to Black Sabbath and other doom influences. , NIGHT DEMON - »Gott will das nicht« Playing amazing rolls like that on, "Slaughterday", "Dead", and "Bonesaw". Mental Funeral is their second album proper, and is nothing short of a fucking riot the whole way through. Furthermore, this album sets itself apart from a lot of other death metal at the time due to the fact that the majority of the songs on here are real ear-worms. Which makes the most vicious homicidal maniac, in the act, look like a choir boy. His vocals are quite versatile here, they can be mainly deep fluctuating growls, to extended screams.
