Fit For An Autopsy

Thy Art Is Murder, Fit For An Autopsy & Malevolence Unite On Three-Way Split EP “The Aggression Sessions”, Hear Fit For An Autopsy’s “Hellions”


Deathcore heavy hitters Thy Art Is Murder and Fit For An Autopsy, and UK metalcore faction Malevolence, have announced an upcoming three-way split EP. They have titled that effort “The Aggression Sessions“, with each artist contributing two tracks to the release.

Nuclear Blast will have that out on April 07th (vinyl on July 21st.) It is envisioned as a spiritual sequel to 2016’s “The Depression Sessions“, which saw Thy Art Is Murder and Fit For An Autopsy unite on a split with The Acacia Strain.

Some notable covers will appear on this outing, including songs originally done by Cannibal Corpse and At The Gates. Fit For An Autopsy‘s “Hellions” leads the pack and has newly emerged online below. Speaking of that song, Fit For An Autopsy offered:

“‘Hellions‘ was a fun look back at some of our more brutal and fast-paced roots more akin to our earlier material. This year marks the 10-year anniversary of Hellbound, the record which we all collectively feel really started things in motion for the band.

It was a blast to channel the energy and excitement we had at that time back into our music in 2023. It’s only natural for bands to evolve and expand their sound over time, but we never forgot where we came from, so this one is for those who were here from day one!”

As release, Thy Art Is Murder and Fit For An Autopsy collectively stated:

“Before we had even completed work on ‘The Depressions Sessions‘ we knew a lifelong friendship had been forged between Thy Art Is Murder and Fit For An Autopsy, and that we would have to do another variation of the project.

The Aggression Sessions‘ concept was born almost immediately following the completion of the first iteration but has taken many years to finally find the time to record and release it amidst the chaotic touring and music release schedules of both bands. We wanted to take things back to some of our favorite inspirations for writing and performing heavy and aggressive music this time, encapsulating the tone of the EP title. We hope everyone enjoys!

Joining us for round 2, please welcome Malevolence into the series. Much love to The Acacia Strain, and thank you to them for being a part of this lineage. Check out their new forthcoming record as well!

Working with friends and peers and avoiding the pitfalls of competitiveness has always been the most rewarding part of being in a band, so as always thank you for the support and opportunity to have this platform. See you all on the road soon!”

Malevolence bassist Wilkie Robinson added:

“New Jersey to Australia to Sheffield! it was an absolute pleasure to be involved in this big international metal link-up and a great opportunity for us to have fun creatively outside of the usual expectations. Shout out to Eliran Kantor for killing the artwork and Nuclear Blast for making it all happen.”
