Among other renowned metal and hardcore bands, Shrinker’s music was heavily influenced by Autopsy, and the respect was mutual. In fact, Chris Reifert was one of the band’s most ardent and prolific supporters, as he was active in spreading the band’s early demos. Nonetheless, the band dissolved in 1990 and took a twenty-five-year hiatus, in part due to the frustration with being unable to secure a record deal.
