Title Length; 1. During these, he might not even use the hi-hat or ride, but instead utilize the cymbals for nod. Label: Peaceville Records. Hiemsogt. 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. Crude, nihilistic, and brilliant. I don't hear it on this and the result is great because there's never a dull moment in the album. What met my ears when I first listened to it was quite slow, doomy(still with fast parts in it of course) and uncomplicated death metal, that had serious groove and a "we´re death metal, go to hell!"-attitude. Autopsy is a big name in death metal, but their Mental Funeral album rarely gets the credit it deserves as a classic. 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. Gemeinsam mit dem ehemaligen Glenn-Hughes-Drummer Markus Kullman übrigens, was Mastermind und Gitarrist Alex Beyrodt prompt für eine dezente stilistische Kurskorrektur genutzt hat. 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. 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. The bass is not too noticeable, mainly due to the guitar's overall riff dominance, but does give a nice low end to Autopsy's sound. You KNOW when you're listening to an Autopsy album. Just take a look at the cover art: that’s exactly what you have in store for you. 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. The speed level does elevate to blast beat realms, but usually doesn't loiter long enough for the authorities to investigate. This record is a masterpiece of pure death metal. Other than riffs the solos are very fast and climactic. avancieren. During my Autopsy phase, I fell in love with this album. "Fleshcrawl" is another instrumental doom guitar sequence that serves as a decent intro for "Torn from the Womb", but independently it's not the bees knees. 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) It just didn’t get it. Reifert's drumming amazes me per release, because he is constantly upping himself with creative detail. With the bad part of this album out of the way, let's get on with what's great about this record. The lyrical content is typical death metal material focusing on death, torture and sadness. And all this is just plain old heavy metal and hard rock. In the slower parts it is either standard doom metal riffs with heavy powerchords that sloooooowly moves the music forward, or Black Sabbath inspired riffs where two guitars play a melody, one light and one dark. It's very arousing making love with a body and drinking some of the blood… 8/10. Both guitars often work in unison and at other times place the accent mark at the end of riffs. Tempo is cut and instead replaced with the most evil-sounding riffing in existence. The unsettling man on your street, the one whose eyes always seem to follow you, the one you only ever see at night. This progressivism rapes the album everywhere, the band taking the long winded route, but keeping the songs short so we are left with works of no real substance. After putting this record on the first thing that hits you is a monstrous scream from drummer/vocalist Chris Reifert that slams you in the face. Favorite track: "Destined to Fester". The guitars, bass and vocals are proudly saluting their commander with this soaked cavernous effect as well. Indeed, the work Autopsy put into Mental Funeral was inspired by Chicago’s doom metal pioneers Trouble. Das Highlight des Albums ist diesmal also eine Ballade! This was ’91 of course and all death metal bands were still in great form those days (except Obituary that is) As I mentioned, this is in no way an 'evolution' of Autopsy's sound, but in fact a devolution, as if the band couldn't get enough grave soil and thus decided to dig a cemetery within another cemetery. 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. But all that matters is the fact that you don’t know, you never will and you’ll probably die a violent death at its hands regardless. Very neat) Each track is a separate entity, and damned good ones at that. Autopsy's lack of caring about production value also, gives "Mental Funeral", as well as their other records, it's own personality.

In the late 60s and 70s, Hammer, Amicus and Tigon studios produced these great portmanteau films, that were usually around four separate stories that sometimes had one interlinking theme. Autopsy crafts a very specific, very enjoyable and very dirty, disgusting atmosphere on Mental Funeral, and this most noticeable aspect of the album. That said, it does not cock up the overall experience. , ASPHYX - PARTY.SAN 2010 Die geilste Schlammschlacht des Jahres!

They could've used longer structures to expand on ideas exhibited on the first album and MAYBE, maybe, flirted with more technicality. Sure, you'll still hear parallels in this, but they are marginal at best. Du bist auf der Suche nach einer Übersicht über aktuelle und kommende Veröffentlichungen? Autopsy – Mental Funeral . 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. What could go wrong? verbeugen sich knietief vor Led Zeppelin, während ´Eyes Full Of Tears´ oder ´Flesh & Bone´ perfekte Whitesnake-Ersatzdrogen geben. Like, what the hell? There's the moderately interesting title track, which I do believe is a pretty sweet acoustic closer, but other than that they're just unnecessary, breaking up the pace which I'd need to be more interested in this album. Where Autopsy's path took them was different, however. Reifert literally sounds like a horrible demon from hell spewing lyrics about death, gore, and perversion before it was cool to do so. Culter shines on some nice breaks on, "Torn from the Womb" and "Destined to Fester" that bring a dramatic suspense to the songs. This outstrips the barbaric bludgeoning (a Cannibal Corpse reference, sue me) of their crude yet effective first album in spades. Verified Purchase. Mental Funeral is a grisly incantation of carnal death and doom that marks the pinnacle of their career, and while it's perhaps not the most perfect of albums I've heard, it's consistent with the debut while at the same time surpassing it. So kann ich hier nicht mehr als sieben Punkte vertreten, da die Höhepunkte zu rar gesät sind. Autopsy simply picked up where Severed Survival left off. Eventually I had a discussion with Corinne from Acrostichon about this album. Remember: these were the days of either the earliest Skogsberg sound or Morrissound and everything else either came from England or sounded like a demo. I love this album! , AUTOPSY Type: Full-length Release date: April 22nd, 1991 Catalog ID: VILE 25CD / VILE 25 CD Label: Peaceville Records Format: CD Reviews: 18 reviews (avg. The production quality is just enough to bring out the true nature of their sound: dirty and raw. Buy it now! 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. Just how it should be. In September 2008, members of Autopsy briefly reunited in the studio only to record two new tracks for the special edition of their 1989 classic debut Severed Survival, which was re-released on February 23rd, 2009.The tracks, marking the band's first recording since 1995, are included on the reissue's second disc. 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 leans in a wholly opposite direction to artists like Pestilence or Death, whose goals were to transcend the brutality of their roots, or transport them on a generational starship into the unknown. I must hear half a dozen demos and albums each week from younger artists trying to pull this off. Featured peformers: Chris Reifert (drums, vocals), Danny Coralles (guitar), Eric Cutler (guitar), Steve Cutler (bass), Paul "Hammy" Halmshaw (producer), Ron Rigler (engineer). But Reifert’s vocals really take the gore-frosted cake here: the man has a sick, sick growl that makes me feel diseased just hearing him. in creative energy. View all reviews for Autopsy - Mental Funeral. Autopsy are a strange group. Twisted Mass Of Burnt Decay 02. Rock Hard Verlags- und Handels- GmbH Wenn AUTOPSY-Mastermind Chris Reifert meint, daß Scott Burns-Produktionen der größte Mist sind, dann muß ich gestehen, daß ich den "größten Mist" dieser Produktion mit Pappkarton-Drums und viel zu verzerrten Gitarren vorziehe. Displaying great doom riffs, and amazing vocals as well as fantastic drumming. “Dead” and “Hole in the Head” are the most notable in this aspect: the former rides some haunting, memorable leads that mesh perfectly with the spoken lyrics and demonstrate the obvious influence Autopsy had on the burgeoning Swedish death metal scene. Autopsy has been a band that often has a horror-like edge associated to their music. Mix doom and death, death and punk, whatever. Tracklist: 01. 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. The production is very essential but also clean. It even transcends that sub-genre and is just great metal, but it is certainly not for the faint of heart. Natürlich gibt es darüber hinaus etliche Passagen, die aufhorchen lassen. 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. 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. Check the title track if you want a ton morbidity in 37 seconds of arpeggios. Too many slow parts. On the other hand, the excellent closer “Dark Crusade” is bookended by the fast, violent and furious “Bonesaw” and the morbid and macabre title track, which flawlessly uses Autopsy unique sense of melody to end this gory, bloody masterpiece of death metal. I had to laugh the other day upon stumbling across a review for this album. The ominous lamentations of a stoned warlock. April 1991 . But this moment gives the sensation that of being rendered completely blind, with your only sensational connection with outside world being this doomy singular guitar lick. Like the character Two-Face from Batman. 5.0 out of 5 stars Five Stars. The difference, of course, is that for new bands it is a gimmick, while for Autopsy it was merely a way to drive a song forward with a little twist. For its time, I'm sure that first album certainly was, with the title track reasonably retaining a feeling of fear after all these years, but most metal just rocks too hard and just owns to be truly terrifying. Whatever praise I give this album, there's one thing about it that I absolutely despise. The cover art sums this album up perfectly: loud, garish and confused. 01. , AURA NOIR His kit has a great natural tone to it that I really adore, and is probably the best sounding kit I've heard in death metal. Most metal songs and albums, if they do convey a feeling of horror, manage to feel more like horror trailers than actual films; intense sequences designed to bait the audience into wanting the full feature. Mental Funeral is their second album proper, and is nothing short of a fucking riot the whole way through. I went through this brief Autopsy phase recently, and during these phases I go through where I like a band a lot, I'll listen to all of their material and purchase albums. Other than slows this album has a great deal of murderous screams like tracks such as "Dead" and "Slaughterday". Well take the lead, and look up their early killing sprees. Whenever I'm seeking out an effective, sepulchral atmosphere in death metal, I know just where to find it. The guitar sound is great and thick: a simple death metal distortion that serves their sound perfectly. Too many melodies played in a way others might call ‘inadequate’ or ‘almost out of key’. After releasing their debut, Autopsy seemed to have reached their prime rather quickly. Autopsy were masters of their (lack of) craft. This album has dynamics and character to spare, and is enthusiastically recommended to everyone. There are a few early era Sabbath influences here on the guitars. Severed Survival, although a classic in its own right, could not compare with the unrestrained (but intelligent) brutality of Mental Funeral. I understand that this is allegedly a legendary death metal album but if you want quality death metal and quality Autopsy then listen to the debut, or any other earlier release. Every song (even the short instrumental interludes) have riffs that just sound awesome and evil. It is and was inevitable fortune or an unlucky weight that would put the pressure on Autopsy's on going releases. Hello Select your ... not a single bad thing to say about this record! Hoffmanns präzises, schön nach vorne gespieltes Gitarrenwerk (Titeltrack!) Finally, I suppose this is listenable, after all it's only 38 minutes, but it isn't recommended. 68 global ratings. Talking about the words. A song like "Twisted Mass of Burnt Decay" has a quicker punk aspect to them, but still bring much brutality. Always. 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. On April 22nd, 1991 the Antichrist was born. “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. Fleshcrawl 04. There are short songs that last less than a minute that help space out the album, as well as passages in the music that slow the album down to a speed that is soft on the ears. The organic sound of "Mental Funeral" adds to its deathly atmosphere, you can almost smell the coffin stench when listening to it. As well as spew out many different indescribable noises. Sonically, Mental Funeral is a lot like that, if the childbirth took place in an open grave in an ancient, rotting graveyard rather than a pristine hospital, and the presiding OB/GYN expert decided that a sledgehammer would be the best tool to use during the procedure. Aber noch besser ist die zurückhaltende Art, wie er die Botschaft vermittelt. WHY DID THEY DO THIS?!? Dieses Fingerspitzengefühl vermisse ich hier bei AUTOPSY, denn die langsamen Passagen sind zu langatmig und werden auf die Dauer nervtötend. Another reason for this incredible power is the fact that the record functions both on a conceptual level (that being, umm, brain death or morbidity, I guess) and as an brilliantly well-put together collection of horror. 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. His vocals are quite versatile here, they can be mainly deep fluctuating growls, to extended screams. I think the best music can often be judged in terms of the images in conjures in your mind and, in this sense, Autopsy are certainly the death metal band whose work gives me ​the creeps most often (in the best possible sense, of course). 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”. Generell kann man sagen, daß AUTOPSY hier definitiv einen Rückwärtsschritt getan haben. 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. 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. Home Review Autopsy – Mental Funeral. In unserer ausführlichen Titelstory hat Matthias ja bereits jedes Album-Detail mit der Lupe untersucht, fehlt eigentlich nur noch ein Resümee eines anderen Autoren, um den Gesamteindruck abzurunden. Simply put, this might be an "ewww" album for some but I highly doubt it's an "eh" album for very many. Die Beethoven-Adaptionen in ´Symphony Of Pain´ sind irre lässig integriert, das abschließende, Klassik-inspirierte Instrumental ´Samson And Delilah´ fungiert als mehrstimmiger Ohrenschmaus. By sticking to their guns and producing on going twisted musical material. Chris, ihr hättet euch besser mal vom guten, alten Scotti produzieren lassen sollen, denn da wäre mehr aus "Mental Funeral" geworden. Find helpful customer reviews and review ratings for Mental Funeral at Amazon.com. Not that Mental Funeral is necessarily innovative on its own, but the grimy production was quite a novelty in its day. ​ A better, more ambient/cavernous production with a booming drum sound and crushing guitars is what we have here as well as a (somewhat) more refined approach to the lyrics, and this is what Autopsy has wrought; a damn twisted classic. http://www.fromthedustreturned.com, It's love of the dead… I liked Severed Survival. 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. I didn’t like the production much (flat) and I found some songs just dull. There is a rare medical condition in newborn babies referred to as gastroschisis, which is an inherited congenital defect that causes the abdominal wall of the fetus to grow only partly or perhaps not at all. Here, however, they are simply adding another twist to the tale. No budget, practically no special effects. The songs don't all mash together in one blur of music that occasionally has a riff that stands out among the chaos. Review zu Autopsy - The Headless Ritual. 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. Mental Funeral is a very odd album. And then we have "In the Grip of Winter", showcasing the band messing around with doom, and then nothing of interest until tracks 8 and 9. The thing that drew me to this album was how unrestrained the music is, but also how patient it is. Kann man machen! Now for some factors about the album that make it stand out above most death metal classics: Helpful. In the end the guitar work fits perfectly in the album and provides memorable riffs, spastic solos and even a few atmospheric melodic parts on the intro to, "Hole in the Head" and even slow melodic parts on "Torn from the Womb". einen eigenen Stempel aufgedrückt. Once that riff plays and the double bass section starts near the end one can understand why this album is a death metal classic... it captures the energy perfectly. It was clear autopsy had been a HUGE influence on the early Acrostichon sound. as always, so no comment there. The strange hue that blood achieves after having fallen down to meet the already sodden earth. The weird bridge in the forest in Evil Dead. It's such a poor song that it required its own paragraph. Mental Funeral has an extremely raw sound, but there is absolutely zero mud to be found on these serial killer boots. ​ The snare drum sound is like a can, so raw and good. And it's not only impressive that he has this range, but that he does both very well. And this is played at most Autopsy shows, and the fans go mad for it for some reason. (06:59) Torn from the Womb05. 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 … Far from a textbook example of death metal, the album is a magnificent work from a band that did what it wanted even if it never won them any popularity contests in their active days. For instance the label they shared for many years, Peaceville, was bringing bands to life that were apart from the crowd. Nein, das muss man selbst als eisenharter Kritiker akzeptieren können. One of the sickest death album ever, but not recommended to those who search for speed here. Then they put out the full length 'Acts of the Unspeakable'. Chris Reifert picked up on this immediately and launched Mental Funeral, where each track is its own brutal story. Here in the 21st century, it's become 'cool' again to delve into the primitive extremity minus the technical wizardry in which the 'other half' live, but Chris Reifert and his troupe had already decided on this path 20 years ago to date. Autopsy were always unique. Slow doomy portions make the fast parts seem 1000x faster- they make fast death metal sections not the norm, but a special headbanging section of the song where emotion leads up to. However, this band would go on to a change on their second album. Even though anyone with ears worth their salt loves Autopsy, it's safe to say that a fair few people - even those who were death metal fans otherwise -​would have listened to this and have thought "What the hell is wrong with these sickos?". One has to feel the beauty of second rate horror movies. Just as much of a case could be made for Mental Funeral as a doom metal classic as death, because a large portion of the material crawls along like a convocation of Pentagram, Black Sabbath and old school Paradise Lost. The drums for instance have a more clear and distinguished sound, but are still swirled and frosted with delicious amounts of obscurity. Das Artwork erinnert von der Farbgebung spontan ein wenig an „Mental Funeral“ (1991) und auch der klang der Musik ist an diese Epoche angelehnt, selbst wenn auf „The Tomb Within“ diese kriechenden, morbiden Passagen nicht so ausgiebig vorhanden sind wie eben auf „Mental Funeral“. These screams give the album some variety and amazing atmosphere. 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. Skip to main content.us. It's a beautiful album, its like the Mozart of death metal with its varieties in tempo, atmosphere, and structure ever present. Mental Funeral is a death metal music album recording by AUTOPSY released in 1991 on CD, LP/Vinyl and/or cassette. Playing amazing rolls like that on, "Slaughterday", "Dead", and "Bonesaw". Drummer Chris Reifert has stated his songwriting motivations in rather simple terms – to make “the sickest shit imaginable” or some such banality. It's like a mix of classic rock with jazz and death metal. All the reasons I mentioned to dislike this album were exactly why she thought of this as an instant classic. 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. The end result is a mixture of vastly different bits and pieces well forged together: for example, the 35-second guitar-only interlude Fleshcrawl is a perfect way to both deliver a little pause from the brutality that preceded it and also lead into the next piece of dismal suffering. It even transcends that sub-genre and is just great metal, but it is certainly not for the faint of heart. No, this album has an atmosphere to it. Natürlich wirken diese Einfälle nur, weil die Musik so makellos gut ist. "Torn from the Womb" has a great tasteful solo in the vein of Slayer or Morbid Angel. All in all the vocals make this album what it is and really drive the doom/death direction home. Where Severed Survival lacked was track differentiation; upon first listen each track had many similar qualities to each other. "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. While shadowing at a hospital, I met the parents of an infant unlucky enough to be born with gastroschisis, and they told me horrific experience that their childbirth was: all of the simultaneous greatness and disgust the miracle of birth already provides, combined with the heartbreak and intense worry of your child’s safety due to its organs being strewn about while it is delivered from the womb. , VADER I bought it because I knew Reifert from Death’s Scream Bloody Gore obviously and had one old Autopsy demo song somewhere on tape. Nihilist/Entombed, Grave, Dismember, etc. 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. Rated #9 in the best albums of 1991, and #736 of all-time album.. Und so ist „Too Mean To Die“ in erster Linie eine weitere Variante der Alben seit „Blood Of The Nations“ (2010): perfekt gespielter, messerscharf riffender Heavy Metal mit Tornillos röhrender Reibeisenstimme, die von Platte zu Platte selbstsicherer und besser wird. Ich bin bestimmt kein Typ, der ausschließlich auf Geschwindigkeit steht, aber wenn eine Death Metal-Band langsame Sachen spielt, sollte sie auch in der Lage sein, diese entsprechend umsetzen zu können. Auweia - 'ne zwiespältige Sache, die neue AUTOPSY-LP. Find helpful customer reviews and review ratings for Mental Funeral at Amazon.com. Overall of my favourite Death Metal releases of all time, from an era when Peaceville failed to put out little that wasn’t essential for any metalhead. After debut Severed Survival, which was excellent, Autopsy charged themselves with furthering their brand of sludgy Death Metal, and with Mental Funeral they did just that. The guitar lines displayed here are more horror theme oriented. Screw the critics. Tracks are very different, yet all retain a doom-y nature to them.
