Last we heard from New Jersey deathcore face-smashers Fit For An Autopsy was back in April of 2020, when the band released their track “Fear Tomorrow.” Now, the band have revealed details for their new album, which is due out this January.
Fit For An Autopsy’s next record is titled Oh What The Future Holds, and will see release on January 14th via Nuclear Blast Records. The album’s cover, illustrated by Adam Burke (who illustrated the band’s last album sleeve for 2019’s The Sea of Tragic Beasts), is a little different for the band:
This could easily be the art for a German power metal album! Which is kind of fucking cool, given how Fit For An Autopsy sound.
The band have also teased the release of their new single “Far From Heaven,” which will apparently drop via a music video at the same time as the album preorders open up. Fans can sign up to be alerted about the song via the album’s new website.
Fit For An Autopsy certainly sound like the human condition being fucked into a sewer pipe, but they also write some killer hooks. The Pit’s own Chris Krovatin clocked them in at #9 on our list of the 30 greatest hooks in heavy metal history.
“Will Putney may be a mad genius, but he also knows the good a hammer blow to the chest can provide,” wrote Chris. “‘Hydra’ is the rare example of a song whose hook isn’t exactly its chorus, but the track’s opening salvo and detonation is so compelling that the listener instantly wants to hear it over and over again. In that way, Fit For An Autopsy combine death metal and hardcore’s most powerful weapons — the breakdown, the drop, the cruel riff, the gang vocal — into a single killing machine that crushes everything in its path. Steer clear of the pit when this one lights up.”
