Obituary – Obituary

Obituary – Obituary

6th March 2017 0 By Rich Dodgin

I know it’s only March, but it really does feel like Christmas has come early… because just 5 months after the release of the incredible Ten Thousand Ways To Die EP, Florida death metal legends Obituary return with a self-titled album of skull crushing tunes !!

From the first moment of opening track, ‘Brave‘, you know that these guys are back and aren’t taking any prisoners!  This is an album of pulverising death metal that totally delivers from start to finish.  The band have done an amazing job of keeping that old Obituary sound we all know and love, while sounding fresh and contemporary – and as a result, this album should appeal to old and new fans alike – it’s fast and furious (‘Brave‘ and ‘Sentence Day‘), heavy with subtle groove metal influences (‘A Lesson in Vengeance‘), it has chugging guitars, pounding drums and classic guttural vocals (‘End it Now‘, ‘Kneel Before Me‘ and ‘It Lives‘), it has moments that wouldn’t sound of place on Cause of Death (‘Turned to Stone‘ and ‘Straight to Hell‘), it’s catchy as hell (‘10,000 Ways to Die‘) and even technical in places (‘Betrayed‘).

I’m a huge Obituary fan, so I had very high hopes for this album – and I’m delighted to be able to say that with Obituary the band have created another slab of masterful death metal.

If you’re an Obituary fan, or a fan of old school death metal in general, then this album is seriously worth checking out – awesome stuff !!

Score: 10 out of 10
