For the last two years Foul Body Autopsy has been walking the dusty roads of a world in the rotting grip of the undead. Inspired by the classic zombie films of George E. Romero Tom Reynolds brought us the This Machine Kills Zombies album and follow up EP The Unquiet Dead, riff driven masterpieces of melodic death that took us from the first broken casket, through the screams and bloodshed , to the endless silence of a planet devoid of life. Now we reach the final page of this epic story, the concluding words before this volume of the Foul Body Autopsy saga is over.
Purified Ready To Reclaim originally appeared on the This Machine Kills Zombies album, but it has now been completely reworked and reimagined to create the perfect coda to Foul Body Autopsy’s years amongst the dead. This new single version features real drums, courtesy of Alex Micklewright, along with keyboards, synths, acoustic guitar and a wonderfully atmospheric final touch of piano from Aaron Bright. Tom Reynolds has also re-recorded all his vocals and guitar parts – the guitars benefitting from the added power of Blackstar amplification who now endorse Tom. Bringing that finishing touch of magic to this new single is Russ Russell, the noted producer applying his mixing and mastering skills to this lavish rebirth.
Purified Ready To Reclaim will be released on May 20th, a date that just so happens to coincide with Tom Reynolds birthday; a fitting gift to himself from the man labelled “a fucking riff machine” by Angry Metal Guy. So join us for a last walk through the kingdom of the dead, before we turn out the lights forever.
