OBITUARY picture
Obituary are one of the pioneering bands of the death metal genre. The band came from Tampa, Florida, and was founded as Executioner in 1985 and then changed their name to xecutioner to avoid confusion with the other one. In 1988, shortly before the release of their first album "Slowly We Rot", they changed their name to Obituary. Obituary still remain an influential band in the Florida death metal movement that arose in the late 1980s. The 1990 release "Cause of Death" featured James Murphy on guitar (Cancer and Disincarnate) replacing Allen West for unknown reasons. This release has been described as a seminal album in the Death Metal genre. Vocalist John Tardy is recognized as one of the first vocalists to use an abnormally low growl (compared to the screechy growls used by predecessors Death and Possessed).

Obituary are listed by Nielsen Soundscan as the fifth best-selling

OBITUARY World Demise

Album · 1994 · Death Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Vim Fuego
Obituary were victims of their own success. With the stunning combination of a legendary debut, a follow up album which many rate better than the first, and a third album which was the highest selling Death Metal album of all time to that point, it was bound to come a little unstuck on the fourth album. There is nothing obviously wrong with 'World Demise'. It takes the raw brutality of 'Slowly We Rot', the Celtic Frost worship of 'Cause Of Death', and the clinical precision of 'The End Complete' to a new level. Everything Obituary made their name with is here - thunderous guitars, assault and battery of the drum kit and of course Donald Tardy's trademark vomitory death grunt. Obituary developed a very tight sound, which first became evident on 'The End Complete', and became fully operational here. A lot of the fuzzier, less distinct parts of Trevor Peres' rhythm guitar were sharpened up. Some of the charm of early Obituary was the fact it was recorded primitively, giving it a warm "feel". Crisper production and improvements in playing technique took a lot of that feel and character away from the band's sound. In its place is a more precise, colder, almost robotic feel, more synthetic than natural. Everything seems exact, deliberate, planned, and faultless. Many former fans were put off. What better than a mechanical sound for decrying pollution and industrialisation though? Opener ‘Don't Care’ and ‘Solid State’ particularly demand instant respect for exacting execution. Like an automated Orwellian nightmare, they stamp on your conscious mind remorselessly. Escaping the nightmare, ‘Final Thoughts’ explores the last flickers of neurons through the brain before you pull the trigger. Death Metal can be a very restrictive genre to work within. A lot of fans expect things to be exactly right, with little room for deviation. Obituary tried something a little different here. There are vocal samples mumbling away under a lot of the tracks. Who knows what they are saying, but the almost subliminal effect on the sound is engaging. Also, on final track ‘Kill for Me’, there are African tribal percussion samples. The loop adds an interesting percussive effect. It is unfortunate the band did not explore this avenue further. Time hasn't been terribly kind to this album. The first three are fondly remembered by most fans, but not this for some reason. It is really a continuation of and the obvious successor to 'The End Complete'. Perhaps death metal had finally progressed and caught up with where Obituary had been five years earlier.

OBITUARY Inked in Blood

UMUR
"Inked in Blood" is the 9th full-length studio album by US, Florida based death metal act Obituary. The album was released through Gibtown Music/Relapse Records in October 2014. It´s been 5 years since the release of "Darkest Day (2009)", and there have been a couple of lineup changes since as guitarist Ralph Santolla has been replaced by Kenny Andrews and longtime bassist Frank Watkins has been replaced by Terry Butler (Death, Massacre, Six Feet Under). "Inked in Blood" is available in a regular 12 track, 49:04 minutes long version, and in a deluxe edition featuring 2 bonus tracks.

Stylistically there can be 5 or 10 years between Obituary releasing a new album, it´s always going to sound unmistakably like them. That´s certainly the case with "Inked in Blood" too, which features classic Obituary virtues in gory lyrics/cover artwork, ultra heavy yet groove laden downtuned riffs, the occasional screaming whammy bar solo, heavy rhythms (and occasionally faster ones), and John Tardy´s signature brutal growling vocals in front. There´s very little new here (which is probably great news to most fans of the band) besides John Tardy singing a clean vocal line in the opening minute of "Back on Top", but considering the usual musical conservatism of Obituary, that actually is what I´d characterize as a jaw dropping moment.

The material on the album are generally of high quality and to my ears "Inked in Blood" is one of the more varied and memorable Obituary releases. Some of the standout tracks are "Centuries of Lies", "Visions in My Head", "Deny You" and "Minds of the World". The sound production is overall of high quality. It´s powerful, raw, and brutal although the triggered bass drum sound could have prospered from a more organic tone. So upon conclusion "Inked in Blood" is yet another quality release by one of the legends of the genre and a 4 star (80%) rating is deserved.

Violence...

Genre: death metal

After a five-year gap, the death metal veterans in Obituary released their ninth full-length album "Inked in Blood". I've seen some reviews criticizing Obituary for having stagnated on this album, while others praise them for sticking to their guns.

The thing is, there are bands that we expect to reinvent themselves with every release, like Cynic, but there are also bands that we do not expect to reinvent themselves with each new album - bands that we don't want to change - like AC/DC and, indeed, Obituary. These are bands whose strength is that they can consistently deliver strong material without resorting to radical style changes.

Obviously, I belong to the group of people who praise Obituary for consistency. This album sounds like an Obituary album to the point that the band uses the same formula of opening the album with a fast song and then delivering heavier tracks with a couple of fast ones every now and then. As one can only expect, the music on this album is primitive death metal with faster tracks taking on a bit of a thrashy feel, while the heavier tracks are crushing and devastating. So, yeah, this sounds like Obituary always sounds, and I wouldn't have it any other way. That said, the guitar solos strike me as being a bit more melodic and a tad more technical than usual, which is about as innovative as this album gets. That's fine. Innovation in smaller doses is the Obituary way.

Production-wise, I think the album sounds a bit thin, and with less bottom than I would usually expect from Obituary, but this is nothing that detracts from the listening experience.

Recommended to fans of Obituary. If you want innovation from Obituary, then you are not a fan of Obituary. :-P

Warthur
Obituary's second album finds the band in confident mode and playing solid death metal of the early 1990s style. A sicklier, more grotesque aesthetic than the esoteric fury of Morbid Angel or the curt brutality of Deicide, Obituary offer enough of a distinctive voice to feel individual whilst at the same time stick closely enough to the fundamentals of death metal to create an album which will appeal to most fans of the genre. Throw in an expert cover of Celtic Frost's Circle of the Tyrants, and you end up with a prospect that more than adequately proves Obituary's chops.

OBITUARY Darkest Day

Album · 2009 · Death Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
UMUR
"Darkest Day" is the 8th full-length studio album by US death metal act Obituary. The album was released through Candlelight Records in June 2009.

The music on the album is in the trademark simple, groove based and brutal death metal style that Obituary have practised since day one. The addition of lead guitarist Ralph Santolla on "Xecutioner's Return (2007)" boosted the band´s sound with his many and varied guitar solos. The same can be said about his contributions to "Darkest Day", which takes a similar approach, with loads of solos from Santolla. As always the impressive growls by John Tardy and the downtuned and brutal yet groove based riffing is the basis in the music though. Fans of the band will probably love this album, while those who never enjoyed Obituary won´t have a reason to check them out now. They basically sound the same as they have done since "Slowly We Rot (1989)" with only moderate tweaks to their songwriting and overall sound. Obituary are one of the few death metal acts out there with a completely distinct sound though and they always deliver their music with great conviction and fierce energy. That also counts for "Darkest Day", which is another lesson in why the band are counted among the elite death metal acts on the scene. The album kicks in gear with the fast paced (there are no blast beating on the album, which has never been a part of the band´s sound) "List of Dead" and just never lets go of your throat while it´s spinning. Aggressive, sneering, heavy and brutal as few, Obituary are not even close to sounding tired. It´s obvious they still have an unstoppable appetite for playing their music.

Like it´s predecessor "Darkest Day" feature a very bass heavy sound production, that suits the music well.

While "Darkest Day" is hardly a revelation when it comes to the evolution of the death metal genre, it´s another high quality release by Obituary fully deserving a 4 star (80%) rating. Even after 20 years they are still on top of their game.
