As New Jersey’s metal kings Fit For An Autopsy gear up to release their sixth album ‘Oh What The Future Holds’ on January 14, the band has shared a video for Two Towers.
“Conceptually, Two Towers is an abstract story which follows the journey of your past self and future self, and the forces that pull them apart.” says guitarist Will Putney. “Realizing the impossible concept of them meeting, one is faced with the reality of accepting the things you cannot change. A little out of the box for us, but challenging and fun to create a unique song for the record. Shout out to director Frankie Nasso and his team for the animated video that brought this story to life. We love it, hope you do too. “
Since their inception, Fit For An Autopsy have carved out a place among extreme metal’s modern vanguard. Creating their own space in the realm of what could be described as “post-deathcore”, the band have received widespread acclaim from fans and press for their refreshing approach to modern heavy music.
But, survival depends on evolution and it’s clear that Fit For An Autopsy have embraced that mantra as they continue to evolve with each subsequent body of work. By eradicating the lines between technical metal virtuosity, death metal menace, hardcore intensity, melodic insidiousness and abstract approaches, the New Jersey band embody an uncompromising vision of their own that’s on full display on their sixth album, ‘Oh What The Future Holds’.
Written in the wake of the global pandemic thwarting everyone’s touring plans, ‘Oh What The Future Holds’ was recorded in early 2021 at Putney’s Graphic Nature Audio. With no real timeline or pressure, the band had the freedom to spend more time than usual crafting the album, allowing them to experiment with ideas and take their music into new and exciting places.
In the end, Fit For An Autopsy haven’t just personally evolved on ‘Oh What The Future Holds’; they’ve brought heavy music with them.
