"Autopsia's latest release for Staalplaat is compilation of long deleted tracks from CD's released by Hyperium in the mid-nineties. Tracks are culled from Humanity Is The Devil, The Birth Of Crystal Power, Secret Christmas History, The Silence Of The Lambs, Palladium and Mystery Science plus a previously unreleased track from 1999. Autopsia, from former Yugoslavia, now in exile in Prague have been producing mysterious orchestral music since the late '80s. Dealing with orchestral tunes from the 19th century which are sampled, they have created an unique sound of their own. In their own words, it goes like this: Colonia is a project that implements death as its theme in order to represent the epoch: the colonial age. Death is not a mere event in the epoch -- terror or genocide, conflict or destruction -- the epoch itself is at stake here: death as time, the age of its reign, death from perspective of faith that encompasses the totality of any being which is founded in metaphysical construct. The structure of Autopsia's sound is syncretic, composed of multiple levels that on one hand refer to liturgical forms and on the other to paradoxical junctures of sub-cultural products of elite technology with proto-urban mythologies."
