Fit for an Autopsy – Hellbound (2013)



Before I listened to Fit For An Autopsy’s newest release Hellbound, I kept hearing my brother and my friends talking about it saying how awesome it would be and how they can’t wait to buy it. Well I’m here to tell you that you should definitely give it a listen. This album exceeds over their 2011 release The Process of Human Extermination in both musicianship and potency. Every song will have you mind blown, but at the same time punching a hole through the wall. In short, it’s just really awesome.

This album starts off with Great Gift of the World. It fools you at first; starting with a slow riff and deliberate drumming, then gradually speeding up to the heavy goodness we know as Fit For An Autopsy. The next track is Still We Destroy, incorporating a keyboard intro before the insanity begins. This song is filled with a combination of rapid musicianship and a catchy feel. This song blends melodic composition and vigor perfectly.

Tremors is another unique track. Like Great Gift of the World, it starts off very slow and gradually picks up pace. But rather than sounding heavy, it goes above and beyond; spastic guitar riffs and an indescribable velocity define this track. The technicality increases with a track like There is Nothing Here Worth Keeping. The song goes from a progressive-style jam to a chuggy headbanging track.

This album is dramatically different from The Process of Human Extermination. In Hellbound, we really see the musicianship-side just as much as the heavy one. Guitaristists Will Putney, Tim Howley and Pat Sheridan make an awesome team by playing intricate riffs. Drummer Josean Orta is nothing short of impressive with his swift and intense drumming. This is also the first album released on their new label home, Good Fight/eOne Records. Overall, Hellbound is a much bigger improvement over The Process of Human Extermination and Fit For An Autopsy fans will be extremely pleased with this record.

Fit For An Autopsy’s new record is incredible. The crushing vibe and capricious feel is intoxicating. This is definitely the type of album that allowed Fit For An Autopsy to experiment with new horizons while pertaining to their classic hoarse sound. The fact that Fit For An Autopsy truly pulled this off makes this album even more impressive. What’s next for Fit For An Autopsy? They’re embarking on probably one of the most brutal tours of the year: Hate Across America Tour. They will be supporting Thy Art is Murder along with I Declare War, The Last Ten Seconds of Life and Kublai Khan. If that’s coming anywhere near you and you don’t come out, then you’re the kind of person that deserves to get stomped on in the pit.
