Stand-alone vinyl release containing Autopsy’s studio tracks originally recorded for the ‘All Tomorrow’s Funerals’ collection, plus the ‘Horrific Obsession’ 7” tracks.
‘Sign of the Corpse’ contains Autopsy’s original studio tracks recorded for the ‘All Tomorrow’s Funerals’ collection in 2012. Hot on the heels of their triumphant comeback opus ‘Macabre Eternal’, Autopsy continued where they left off with a set of gore-soaked ditties to strangulate the senses with their highly influential brand of death metal. The release also contains a re-recorded version of early Autopsy classic, ‘Mauled to Death’. Also included on ‘Sign of the Corpse’ are the 2 tracks from the ‘Horrific Obsession’ 7” release in 2009 which contained Autopsy’s first studio output in 15 years, originally recorded to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the band’s debut. All tracks were recorded at Fantasy Studio, CA with Adam Munoz. One of the early breed of US death metal acts, Autopsy formed in 1987 in San Francisco, & originally released 4 albums on Peaceville Records - beginning with the classic debut 'Severed Survival' in 1989 - before disbanding in 1995, with members going on to form Abscess.
The very earliest works of the kings of sickness, Autopsy!
Following the band's 30th anniversary, Critical Madness: The Demo Years compiles the earliest recordings by the kings of sickness.
Chronicling the band's formative years, the collection contains Autopsy’s first demo from 1987 as well as 1988’s legendary Critical Madness demo (which quickly resulted in the band inking a deal with Peaceville and the subsequent release of the genre staple debut, 1989’s Severed Survival).
This special archive release is completed by the rare track Christ Denied and a selection of raw rehearsal recordings from 1987 and 1988, most of which would later feature on the band’s studio debut.

Hot on the heels of 2022’s universally lauded opus, ‘Morbidity Triumphant’, the US death metal greats now return for a new sermon of sickness, with ‘Ashes, Organs, Blood & Crypts’, featuring brutal bouts of riffery feral attacks, soul crushing doom and all out skull splitting heaviness.
