Autopsy reform after 15 years, Abscess disbands

After 15 years of having been declared dead, Autopsy gear up for a gory-ous return.

Gore metal pioneers Autopsy have announced their reformation after a speight of successful shows at Maryland Death Metal Festival held near Baltimore, MD to start writing and recording new material as well as play live shows. A statement was released by the band:

"As many of you know, for years it has been repeatedly stated that Autopsy was over with and done for good. While that was indeed true for a long span of time, it is no longer the case. Autopsy has come to the solid realization that the time is now right to resume their mission of gore soaked death metal brutality and to fulfill this mission with maximum intensity. Make no mistake about it, Autopsy is not about reliving the past, basking in nostalgia or riding on efforts from years long gone. The band is hungry to devour fresh minds and souls and has been amassing an arsenal of new and deathly material to unleash upon those who also hunger for such brutality."

In the wake of the news, Abscess, featuring Autopsy members have announced their disbandment following the departure of Clint Bower.

The band informing fans "[T]hat Abscess has officially broken up. The reason for this is that Clint Bower has left the band for personal reasons and out of respect to him and to all who have supported us for these 16 years, we have decided to call it a day. Without Clint Bower, there can be no Abscess so we won't even try to cheat anyone with something that is not the real thing.
