Severed Survival is the debut album by Autopsy released in 1989. This album somewhat continues in the style of Reifert's former band Death, blended with odd drum fills and breaks, more extreme vocals and the technical bass playing of Steve DiGiorgio. Lyrically the band thrives heavily on horror and gore concepts; nevertheless these are not inspired directly by horror movies.
Various re-releases exist with different bonus tracks and bonus CDs. Also a different cover exists for this album, which depicts the point of view of the person receiving the autopsy.
The original issue of the album has mediocre mixing and mastering, with the bass track much higher than all the other tracks. The drumming was also poorly recorded, with the kick drum almost inaudible.
