Autopsy Torment is a Swedish death metal band, formed in 1989. The band was started by Thomas Karlsson, Autopsy Torment's frontman and singer, with Onkel on guitars. In 1991, the band became a trio with Karl Vincent (Sexual Goatlicker) on drums and Daniel Nilssen on guitar, and made the demo Darkest Rituals. Then followed a period of constant personnel changes, with Thomas Karlsson and Karl Vincent as the core members.

In 1992, the band split up and Karlsson started black metal band Pagan Rites, later becoming the vocalist for the doom band Tristitia. In 1999, the 1991 line-up re-formed with the addition of The Demon on bass. The band released the album Orgy With The Dead on Miriquidi Productions, and then Tormentorium. Karlsson is still actively working with his own project, Devil Lee Rot, and with Pagan Rites. Pulverized Records released an Autopsy Torment compilation album in 2008.
