Absolute Hope Absolute Hell - Starburst - White + Teal Vinyl LP
For Absolute Hope Absolute Hell, Fit For An Autopsy learned how to employ melodics in a way that shows just how crushingly heavy their heavy parts are. But the melodic parts are not simply thrown in capriciously to demonstrate their heaviness. Even with more melodic touches, the band did not ease up on the gas pedal. Not. Even. Close. Sheridan explained, "It's as aggressive as we've always been, but with real songwriting.
Bands with longevity always grow and change. Look at Gojira or bands that are super aggressive and raw and yet they eventually grow into this different thing. Will is our primary songwriter and a producer, so for him to be around music all day and hear other songwriting, it becomes a thing." Sheridan succinctly defined the record as"angry, sad, and well-written," all points that cannot be argued, since that's exactly what the album is. Absolute Hope Absolute Hell is the logical next step for Fit For An Autopsy. It slays with its speed and fury, but it's not mindless metallic mania. It's intelligently crafted and impactful, with a keen sense of melody that doesn’t temper but only enhances the brutality.
Overall, it's thinking man's metal that doesn't scrimp on the ferocity. Fit For An Autopsy just found a fresh, sonically thrilling way to translate their sound, all the while keeping their core style intact.
