2. Dark Recollections: how hard was finding new members for this current incarnation of Autopsy?
AUTOPSY:Not hard. Chris, Danny and myself are the original members of Autopsy. Joe played bass for Abscess
and when Abscess called it quits he joined Autopsy full time.

3. Dark Recollections: what made you want to do Autopsy again. after being split up as a band for so long?
AUTOPSY: We stayed friends the whole time and decided to record a couple new songs in 2008 for the 20th
Anniversary of our 1st record “Severed Survival.” The 2 tracks were also released as a 7″ called
“Horrific Obsession.” We had fun doing that and next thing we know we have an offer to play the
Maryland Deathfest 2010. We did that, had a great time and decided to do more.

4. Dark Recollections: Autopsy has been around the underground scene for a long time, what has it been like
to see so many bands and trends come and go, and be back doing Autopsy again?
AUTOPSY: Haha, we never knew we were a trend!It’s great that people are into what we are doing, we feel that
we are making heavy music and we appreciate all the support we have received. Metal fans are the best!

5. Dark Recollections: talk about your new Ep “the tomb within”
AUTOPSY: It was written very quickly. We atarted writing songs and had an album plus more material but decided
release the ep first.

6. Dark Recollections: what is the song “seven skulls” about, what inspired its lyrics?
AUTOPSY: The music is inspired by whiskey! I got really drunk before writing this one. Chris wrote the lyrics
and he leaves it to you to decide what is the truth. Did he kill his family? Is he insane? Has there been
any killings? Are the bodies related to him? WTF?

7. Dark Recollections: who did the artwork for “tomb within”?
AUTOPSY: Matt Cavotta did the artwork. He does fantasy stuff mainly
but a brilliant artisT. I love his work and we will see more Matt I believe.

8. Dark Recollections: can we expect a new Autopsy cd in the near future?

AUTOPSY: “Macabre Eternal ” is our new full length out now. A mind crushing ear bleeding make you fucking fall
down and not get back up record! Check it out kids, you get high just by playing it really fucking loud!!
Do it!! Now!!

9. Dark Recollections: what are your thoughts on the latest resurgence of old school death metal, any bands you like?
AUTOPSY: Oh shit, tons of bands I like. Obliteration, In Solitude, Bones, Asphyx, Desaster, Darkthrone, Blizzard,
Bonesaw, Morbus Chron, Merrimack, Nailgun Massacare, Lobotomized, Obituary, Cannibal Corpse,
Torn from the Womb. So many more, I cannot possibly list them, and not all are old school death metal.

10. Dark Recollections: talk about some of the shows you have planned in the near future.
AUTOPSY: We have played this year at Roskilde in Denmark, Hammer Open Air in Finland, Chaos in Tejas in Texas,
Neurotic Deathfest in the Netherlands, plus a few more. We next play in Los Angeles August 27 2011.
After that we have Maryland Deathfest 2012 and working on some more shows.

11. Dark Recollections: there is so many bootleg Autopsy live recordings out there… have you heard any of them…
any favorites, would Autopsy ever record a show to be released officially as a live Cd?
AUTOPSY: I have many in my collection. I like most of them. The only problem we have with bootlegs is we have no
artistic control or approval of material. Sometimes a songs needs to be cut out! It is good in the end
though because it promotes Autopsy and Death Metal. We will be releasing some new DVD live shows soon.
One is called “Born Undead.” It is a documentary with a band history, interviews with the band, friends
and other bands as well. It will also include rare videos and pictures as well as a second disc containing
concert footage with Dan Lilker on Bass and Joe Trevisano on bass after Joe joined the band.

AUTOPSY: Of Course, on our website. We are adding new stuff all the time too. Some items are exclusive to our
website, which is

13. Dark Recollections: any last words, comments? thanks for the interview
