Autopsy's Chris Reifert on how the Germans flipped at gore'It's childish, but funny' - Podcast #25!
Chris Reifert has no airs and graces. He’s a chilled guy who wears his talent lightly.
Yet this is the man who drummed on Death’s ‘Scream Bloody Gore’: the man who crafted two of Death Metal’s most influential albums of all time – Autopsy’s ‘Mental Funeral’ and ‘Severed Survival’.
In this podcast with Lorcan Archer, Chris talks death metal, has a laugh over falling foul of worried Germans, and flags up his love for a certain Irish underground band whose t-shirt he still wears!
Why Is Chris So Cool?
So perhaps younger death metal heads maybe wont know about why Autopsy mattered so much to the genre’s development – after all, their classic albums are two decades old.
This is basically your answer. It’s ‘Mental Funeral’ – their mad, doomy death metal masterpiece.
But It’s Not Just Autopsy
Chris didn’t rest on his laurels though.
After Autopsy, his other incredible band was Abscess, who put out a string of great albums with a more up tempo and pounding vibe. Here’s ‘Tomb Of The Unknown Junkie’ from ‘Through The Cracks Of Death’ – a great album.
