Shitfun = LP = (LP)
I can never seem to wrap my head around why Autopsy's forth full length (and final one before they reunited recently) gets such a poor response from fans. In my opinion, "Shitfun" is just as solid as any Autopsy release, and it sees the band pushing their disgusting brand of death metal into disgustingly brilliant territory. Every element that made previous Autopsy albums great is present on here, which is the combination of death metal, doomy riffs, and a really punk-as-fuck attitude. In fact, this is likely the most punk inspired Autopsy release to date. The album previous to this, "Acts of the Unspeakable", pretty much laid out the groundwork for what "Shitfun" would become. At that point in their career, Autopsy was starting to write more demented lyrics, with more focus on obscene sexual fantasies. "Shitfun" pushes this to its most extreme form, and simply just wants to humiliate their victims. What's more death metal than that? In addition to the lyrical content, Autopsy continued expanding on what they were doing musically with the previous album. As I mentioned, this is definitely the most punk inspired record they've ever done, with more short songs that will just pound your face in. Autopsy demonstrates that you only need a couple riffs to make a song effective. There are so many memorable tunes on here. From the infamously disturbing "Praise the Children", to more upbeat tunes like "Bathe in Fire", "Burnt to a Fuck", and "I Sodomize Your Corpse", you'll have this album stuck in your ears for weeks. The classic Autospy guitar solos that are so unmistakable are still present too. Reifert spews out some pretty classic lines too which can be humoring and vile at the same time, and those are the lines that you'll remember. Really, what's not to like about "Shitfun"? It's got everything you would expect from an Autopsy record. Maybe metal fans are just turned off by the punkier song structures? Perhaps the lyrical content is just too much for some? I can only speculate, but in my opinion, if you don't like this album, you just don't get Autopsy. "Acts of the Unspeakable" also seems to suffer from being overlooked as well, although I think this is
