Fit For An Autopsy Premieres New Live Video “Black Mammoth” & Releases Deluxe Edition Of “The Great Collapse”

Fit For An Autopsy released a deluxe edition of its latest album, “The Great Collapse” yesterday, October 27th. This ‘The Rain City Deluxe Version‘ version of the effort comes with a bonus set which they tracked live at Rain City Recorders in Vancouver, BC. A live video from that set for “Black Mammoth” can be seen below.

Says the band of it:

“As kids, we always loved the bootleg live recordings and bonus live tracks on metal records, and it seems like bands aren’t releasing live material as much today in the metal world. Everyone has a slick and modern production, so we thought it’d be challenging and fun to showcase a more raw live performance on record. Rain City did a killer job capturing the band, and Will Putney’s live mix did it justice. Hope you enjoy it!”

Bonus tracks included on the album include:

10 – “Hydra” (live at Rain City)
11 – “Heads Will Hang” (live at Rain City)
12 – “Iron Moon” (live at Rain City)
13 – “Black Mammoth” (live at Rain City)
14 – “Do You See Him” (live at Rain City)
15 – “The Jackal” (live at Rain City)
16 – “Saltwound” (live at Rain City)
17 – “Absolute Hope Absolute Hell” (live at Rain City)

New Album “Life” Announced By JoNo, Band Signs With Frontiers Music Srl

Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the upcoming release from JoNo entitled “Life,” which will be available December 1st. Today, the band has released a music video for the first single, “No Return.” Check it out in the player at the bottom.

Pre-order “Life” at this location. Digital pre-orders come with an instant download of “No Return.”

The band says: ‘We are very thrilled and proud about our cooperation with Frontiers Music Srl, a label which is home to so many great artists we truly respect and admire. As a band, this is an excellent opportunity to reach the international markets we’ve been aiming for. We can’t wait to release the coming album, and of course hit the stage to be heard and seen by a wider audience, meeting with old and new fans. See you all out there!’

JoNo started as a solo project of singer Johan Norrby (hence the moniker “JoNo”), who has been singing, writing, and playing music in various bands and projects over the years. This is very much true for all the members of the band. Guitarist Stefan Helleblad is also a member of Dutch symphonic sensations Within Temptation. Drummer Nicka Hellenberg actually played all the drums on Within Temptation’s “The Unforgiving” and has an impressive resume involving bands and recordings. Both keyboard player Johan Carlgren and bass player Janne Henriksson are frequently hired for both live and studio sessions. Leo Olsson – also a busy musician – joined the band in 2015.

JoNo’s music is hard to pinpoint. Maybe it’s best described as melodic rock with symphonic and progressive elements, always based on strong melodies with bombastic arrangements. Dynamics and a contemporary, fat sound are important ingredients in the JoNo musical recipe. The music has been said to show the influence of great artists like Queen, Supertramp, Kansas, Journey and Sparks, but above all the band has received a lot of credit and praise because of their unique sound.

The track listing for “Life” is:

1. Sailors
2. Crown
3. No Return
4. On The Other Side
5. Downside
6. To Be Near You
7. My Love
8. The Magician
9. Trust
10. The March

U.S. Headline Tour Announced By Exhumed

Gore metal maniacs Exhumed today announced a U.S. headlining tour set to commence November 15th and run through December 8th. Support will be provided by Arkaik. The trek will follow the band’s previously announced short run of live dates with The Black Dahlia Murder, Suffocation, Decrepit Birth and more as well as a performance at Ozzfest Meets Knotfest on November 5th in San Bernardino, California. See confirmed dates below.

“We can’t wait to unleash a casket full of new tunes and old favorites on some maniacs,” issues frontman Matt Harvey. “It’s been too long since we rolled into your town, drank all your beer, and ripped your faces off. See you there, you filthy animals!”

Exhumed’s forthcoming full-length, “Death Revenge,” is set for release on October 13th on CD, LP, deluxe LP with cassette, and digital formats via Relapse Records. Physical packages and digital orders are available via Relapse.com here and Bandcamp over here.

The band’s sixth full-length sees the gory carcass tread into ambitious new territory with the first conceptual album: a musical melodrama in thirteen parts based on shocking true events. “Death Revenge” takes place in the late 1820s in Edinburgh, Scotland and tells the macabre tale of a series of brutal murders where the victims’ cadavers were sold to anatomists, amid a grisly underground trade of grave-robbery.

Recorded with producer Jarrett Pritchard (Goatwhore, Eternal, Gruesome), “Death Revenge” takes the band’s signature gore-drenched, death metal mayhem to theatrical and ghastly new depths.

Tour dates are as follows:

Exhumed w/The Black Dahlia Murder, Suffocation, Decrepit Birth, Necrot, Wormwitch:

11/01/2017 Studio Seven – Seattle, WA [tickets]
