Listen to Fit For An Autopsy’s Crushing Cover of an At the Gates Classic

Published on:

Fit For An Autopsy holds a special place in our blackened hearts here at The Pit.

Outside of being an obviously great band, they also happen to be a bunch of sweethearts. Two Christmas’s ago when we were trying to help raise funds for an amazing charity called Magic Wheelchair, both singer Joe and band mastermind (and studio wizard) Will Putney were amongst the first metal artists to help contribute to the charity campaign.

They dove in and dedicated their spare time without hesitation. Horns to them for being stand-up gentlemen. Furthermore, they also have great taste in bands. Just yesterday, they released a new split that features a killer cover of the Swedish melodic death masters themselves, At the Gates.

Per Nuclear Blast’s original press release about the project:

Nuclear Blast is proud to announce the release of The Aggression Sessions featuring THY ART IS MURDER, FIT FOR AN AUTOPSY, and MALEVOLENCE which will be available digitally on April 7th and on CD + Vinyl on July 21st, 2023 via Nuclear Blast.

THY ART IS MURDER and FIT FOR AN AUTOPSY make the following joint statement:

“Before we had even completed work on ‘The Depressions Sessions’ we knew a lifelong friendship had been forged between THY ART IS MURDER and FIT FOR AN AUTOPSY, and that we would have to do another variation of the project. ‘The Aggression Sessions’ concept was born almost immediately following the completion of the first iteration but has taken many years to finally find the time to record and release it amidst the chaotic touring and music release schedules of both bands. We wanted to take things back to some of our favorite inspirations for writing and performing heavy and aggressive music this time, encapsulating the tone of the EP title. We hope everyone enjoys!

Joining us for round 2, please welcome MALEVOLENCE into the series. Much love to The Acacia Strain and thank you to them for being a part of this lineage. Check out their new forthcoming record as well!

Working with friends and peers and avoiding the pitfalls of competitiveness has always been the most rewarding part of being in a band, so as always thank you for the support and opportunity to have this platform. See you all on the road soon!”
