Fit For An Autopsy’s Will Putney Explains Why Deathcore “Became Boring”


Kerrang! have published a feature on the current state of deathcore. The once prominent metal subgenre has found itself on the decline lately, with many of its defining acts having branched off into other genres. Members of Carnifex, Thy Art Is Murder and more were interviewed for the piece and reflect on the scene’s initial rise and more.

Fit For An Autopsy guitarist Will Putney (who is also an accomplished producer) had the following to say of how he’s viewed the genre more recently:

“It hit a lull – things felt rehashed and sterile. What deathcore became was very limiting at its core – it was simplified and a far cry from where it started out. A lot of the chaos and experimentation was taken out of the genre. It became boring, basically.

We wanted to move into a different space. Both Fit For An Autopsy and Thy Art Is Murder wanted to have our own lane and stop deathcore bands all sounding like each other.

Thy Art went into the black metal world, and we got more experimental and took influence from Gojira and classic metal. We were done with what deathcore had become – we wanted to put a new spin on it.”

Putney produced Thy Art Is Murder‘s latest album “Human Target“. You can find the full feature over at Fit For An Autopsy‘s new album “The Sea Of Tragic Beasts” will see a release on October 25th. They have the following headlining run with Lorna Shore and more booked for it (tickets):
