Severed Survival is the debut album by Autopsy released in 1989. This album somewhat continues in the style of Reifert's former band Death. Lyrically the band thrives heavily on horror and gore concepts; nevertheless these are not inspired directly by horror movies, although the title track is based on Stephen King's short story "Survivor Type. The album was very influential for future death metal acts such as Cannibal Corpse, Entombed, and Dismember. It was also a pioneer of gore lyrics.
Type: Full-length 100%. Co-produced by Autopsy.
Severed Survival" is one of those albums that is almost guaranteed to make you want to start headbanging, or at least fist pumping, the instant you put it on. The vocals are brutal as fuck, right up there with Glen Benton (Deicide), Chuck Schuldiner (Death) and John Tardy (Obituary). The guitars and drums morph together to create a jackhammer that drills pure fucking metal into your brain (it sounds painful, but it's actually pretty damned awesome). It was interesting to note that Chris Reifert, who does vocals and drums for Autopsy, was the drummer on Death's "Scream Bloody Gore" album, which as well as being a death metal classic is also in my top 20 metal albums of all time (as "Severed Survival" now is). I give this album 10/10 and intend to go back to the CD store and see if they have any more Autopsy albums. Highlights of the album: 'Charred Remains' 'Disemboweled' 'Critical Madness' 'Funereality).

Once based there, Reifert completed his new band was with guitarists Eric Cutler and Danny Coralles, plus fretless bassist extraordinaire Steve DiGiorgio, who had just recently launched his "four-string gun for hire" career with neighboring headbangers Sadus.
