OK here is one of the most offensive shirts I own which of course makes it one of my favourites. This is from my favourite death metal band Autopsy and a detail from the super sick art of their brilliant Acts Of The Unspeakable album. I generally hate big backprints like this but as I’m such a fan boy I allow Autopsy to get away with such tacky sentiments. In reality I think their gore/sleaze lyrics are among the best as they are super perverted but quite amusing too and not I-am-dead-serious-that-I’d-torture-a-prossy-with-a-rusty-cheese-knife style of modern brutal dm bands. The whole artwork for Acts.. is below as well so click on the image and see a bigger version where most of the horrific images are visible. The artist took the song titles/lyrics and fashioned the lovely scene and I suspect the front detail on this shirt was inspired by the song Spinal Extractions with the back text being a line from the song Orgy In Excrements.

This was another wonderful present from my mate Jesse as if I recall correctly we did an order from Relapse in the mid 90s ordering 2 of these and only received one which he got. Not sure why as I’ve always been a huge Autopsy fan so I must have bargained poorly that day. The shirt is in excellent condition which is unsurprising as neither of us had the balls to wear this much in public.

I did break my usual rule of not wearing a shirt of a band that’s playing and wore this to the 2010 Maryland Deathfest where I saw Autopsy live for the first time. As you can read in the link I was pretty damn spellbound by their set and was very proud to wear such a charming shirt to one of my favourite gigs. I have plenty of other Autopsy shirts with my Mental Funeral longsleeve being my favourite but this is definitely the grossest.
