California death metal band Autopsy and Peaceville Records are releasing Born Undead, an extensive documentary DVD of the birth, death and rebirth of the band. This is an unprecedented look into the blood and guts of one of death metal’s great innovators, plus live footage from Maryland Deathfest, PartySan Festival and Hole in the Sky in Norway.
The extensive DVD includes a documentary conducted with the band members themselves, as they describe how the beast came to be, and the impact their music has had on the metal world over a span of more than 20 years. The film also documents the band’s long-awaited return to the studio and stage, and includes rehearsals of both new tracks and old classics for Autopsy’s live comeback assault.
The DVD contains hours of footage as well as extras including the band’s promo video for “All Tomorrow’s Funerals,” “My Corpse Shall Rise” and more. Kent Mattieu, who had collaborated with the band on its early classic and often controversial album covers, provided the artwork for the release.
The band has released a video trailer for the upcoming release and you can check it out right here.
