Obituary to Release "Obituary" March 17, 2017


Obituary

Release Date: March 17, 2017

Legendary death metal band OBITUARY return with their self-titled, 10th studio album, further cementing their legacy as one of the most important metal bands of all time! Picking up where 2014's critically acclaimed "Inked In Blood" left off, OBITUARY show no signs of slowing down as they continue to reign as Kings of their genre. Recorded at their home studio in Tampa, Florida, "Obituary" is a 10 track tour-de-force of bone-pulverising death metal that is as heavy, uncompromising and infectious as anything they've released in their historic, nearly 30-year career!

Obituary to Release "Inked in Blood" October 28th


Inked in Blood
Death metal legends OBITUARY make their Gibtown/Relapse debut with Inked In Blood, their 9th full length LP. Almost three decades in, Inked In Blood stands out as one of the finest moments in OBITUARY's already godlike discography. Inked in Blood will be released October 28th in North America (UK/World October 27th & Germany/Benelux/Finland on October 24th) via Gibtown Records & Relapse Records. Today the artwork and track listing have been revealed. Pre-orders for Inked in Blood will be available soon!

The riffs, groove, snarl and rage are as fierce as ever, putting most all other contemporary death metal bands to shame. OBITUARY are THE definitive death metal band, and Inked In Blood is an instant classic amongst their already storied catalog. OBITUARY are both the originators and the torchbearers of the genre! Inked In Blood is the sound of true death metal kings reclaiming their throne!!!

Xtreme Fest Destroyed!!!


August 3, 2014
Last night Obituary played the Xtreme Fest in France. The crowd was manic and the production was amazing. We would like to thank everyone who came out and threw down with us. Judging from the above picture you can see that the show was sick!!! Also, it was great seeing our friends from Sick of it All and Biohazard, it has been a while since we have hung out with our New York brothers.

Now we are in Prague for a few days off before the Brutal Assault Festival. We have played Brutal Assault Festival in the past and it was killer, so we are looking forward to play it again. See ya there!!!

Fan brings Obituary a backdrop in Lisbon, Portugal!!!


August 1, 2014
Before Obituary played in Lisbon, Portugal a fan was brought backstage by the promoter with a backdrop that he and his friend printed at his friend's sign company. We were all blown away and did not expect anyone to do this for us. What a cool thing for someone to do for us. It just goes to show how much dedication Obituary fans have for us. WOW!!! We didn't get the fan's name but we would like to personally thank him again for making a backdrop for us. You rule!!! Just to update our stolen backdrop situation, we have no news as of yet about who took our backdrop after the Stonehenge Festival in Steenwijk, Holland.

Here is a photo of it so, if you know who has it or think you might know anything about this Please helps us get it back! Can't describe how important it is to us and it really sucks for the band and the fans these remaining shows to see Obituary without it hanging! Real Bummer!!

Rock Hard Fest 2014!!!


Rock Hard Fest - Germany 2014

Rock Hard Fest - Gelsenkirchen, Germany

This was the first time we played the Rock Hard Fest since 1991. WOW!!! We can't believe it has been that long. The venue is different and reminded us of an ampitheatre from ancient Rome. Totally amazing. The show was sick and all of the metal heads made it a great day to remember. Thank you Germany for letting Obituary know that are music is appreciated. Your reaction to our new songs let us know that you are surely going to enjoy the new Obituary album.

Also, it was great to see the guys from Sacred Reich, we haven't seen them for quite some time. They sounded amazing and it was like a flashback to our tour together back in 1990. Of course hanging out after the show with Bill and Jeff from Carcass was a treat as well.

Thanks again Germany!!! See you soon...
