Joe Trevisano Departs Autopsy

Joe Trevisano

Longtime bassist Joe Trevisano has left Autopsy. The death metal pioneers announced the news on Facebook, saying that the split is amicable.

“Joe has been making records and kicking ass on stage all over the world with us for the entire chapter two of AUTOPSY going back to 2008. And before that he was in ABSCESS going back to 1997, and even before that…we knew Joe from the local scene around 1991 when he was in VON, so we have a long history together,” they wrote. “Let it be known the split is on good terms. Joe has decided to shift his focus to his family and we support him on this 100% and will always consider him part of the AUTOPSY gang. In the meantime fear not, AUTOPSY will continue to forge ahead and we will keep you all posted on developments. We are not done crushing your skulls yet, so consider yourselves warned.”

Trevisano played on the albums Macabre Eternal, The Headless Ritual, and Tourniquets, Hacksaws and Graves. Their first official live album, Live in Chicago, was released in October. A replacement bassist has not been announced.
