Fit for an Autopsy can be counted on for a new album every two years. The Sea of Tragic Beasts has been announced as the successor to The Great Collapse and comes out Oct. 25 on Nuclear Blast. Watch the self-destructive music video for the first single, "Mirrors," at the bottom of the page.

"Mirrors" captures the lyrical themes perfectly with its doom-laden overtones, scattering thoughts with surges of technicality and tight-gripped grooves, coming back to that ominous sense with moments of reflection.

"You carry things with you, for better or worse. 'Mirrors' illustrates the darker side of this idea. It's also a testament to how the decisions you make can have a resonating effect on the ones around you," commented producer, guitarist, principal songwriter and co-founder Will Putney.

"Clearly, this song was born out of a personal struggle, but in the end, it's a reflection on the greater human condition of love and dependency; not being able to release yourself from the darkness around you," he continued. "Our new record dives head-on into some difficult topics. 'Mirrors' is the the tip of the iceberg."

I saw your ghost in my reflection
I saw a darkness in the heart
I saw a shred of hope
I saw the world tear it apart
I try and piece together
The parts of me that I want the world to see
But the mirror stares back
Ever black
Reminding me
Our world is cold and empty

I saw you slip
Into shallow pools of blood and blue
Servants of dark desire
Find shelter in needle and fire
I starve the demons
But you still feed them
Another rush to the vein
In a lust to escape each ripple of pain

Tiny angels
In tiny hells
Contradictions
I know so well

Torment
When you can’t move forward
Sinking slower then the mind breaks
Another casket lowered that I can’t take
Sober
Carry your cross through lonely winters
My curse my fate my ghost
Beside me she whimpers

Our world is cold and fucking empty
An endless cycle of suffering
The pain has never fucking left me
Into the mirror ever black I see

Tiny angels
In tiny hells
Contradictions
I know so well

I saw your ghost in my reflection
I saw a darkness in the heart
I saw a shred of hope
I saw the world tear it apart
I try and piece together
The parts of me that I want the world to see
But the mirror stares back
Ever black
Reminding me
Our world is cold and empty

My curse
My fate
My ghost
I’d die before I let you go

My curse
My fate
My ghost
I’d die before it let’s me go

Let me go
Let me go
