Autopsy : The Headless Ritual

Nothing like a bit of old school gore grind metal. And unless Chuck Schuldiner is going to rise from the dead and lead Death on, there are few bands more venerable than Autopsy. From the Joe Petagno cover to the nine slices of actually quite catchy riffage and macabre lyrical imagery courtesy of Chris Reifert, Ritual is hands down the most fun album from the extreme end of the metal spectrum this year.
