Coroner To Release Autopsy Limited Edition Set & Announce NEW Album Details!

This is big, not like normal big, but like cult big....

It's the sensational comeback of the year: Swiss metal pioneers Coroner, with the current line-up of Tommy Vetterli (guitar), Diego Rapacchietti (drums) and Ron Broder (bass/vocals) — are back in the studio!

This three-man band made a name for itself in the music scene with its discerning brand of technical thrash metal. Now, 23 long years after the band's last album release [Grin, 1993], Coroner has announced plans to release a new studio album with Sony Music and Century Media Records.

In the 1990s, Coroner caused a stir in the music industry with its progressive and technically sophisticated music style. All over the world, Coroner was considered one of the most unconventional avant-garde metal bands, which is what attracted the attention of global greats like Metallica.

Today, Coroner is a cult band and is highly respected not only by musicians such as Max Cavalera, Franz Treichler [The Young Gods] and Mille Petrozza [Kreator], but also by metal fans all over the world.

After the release of their last studio album back in 1993; Grin, Coroner split up. Two years later, their self-titled, best-of album; Coroner, was released. Sixteen years had passed.... Then, in 2011, Tommy Vetterli, Ron Broder, and the then drummer and founding member Marky Edelmann returned to the stage, playing a potpourri of numbers from their albums at concerts. Back then, the three musicians were almost certain that they would not be able to find the time for a new studio album. 'Almost' being the key word here.

For their seventh studio album, which is due for release in 2017, Coroner have signed a worldwide record deal with Sony Music Switzerland, which has enlisted the help of Century Media Records, a strong partner that will release Coroner records internationally. But for those fans who just can't wait for the new album, Coroner have a special treat in store:

Autopsy will be released on September 23rd, 2016!!

Autopsy is a 3 x Blu-ray + LP [or a 3 x DVD + CD] set that is jam packed with a documentary movie of the band’s history, live recordings, previously unseen interviews and a best-of compilation. The Vinyl + Blu-ray Box, which is limited to 3,000 copies, is a real collector's item and every copy of the box is signed by the band members themselves!
