Obituary Vinyl, CD & tapes from this artist at Norman Records
Death metal pioneers, Obituary, hail from Florida. Their debut album, Slowly We Rot, was originally released in 1989. The band brought a number of aspects together to create the death metal sound - down tuning, a growling vocalist and tempo changes with the songs slowing down to give off a distinctly doomy vibe. 180g solid yellow and transparent green vinyl, limited to 2000 copies on Music On Vinyl.

This veteran Florida institution are sometimes seen as death metal’s answer to AC/DC - reliable purveyors of their simplistic style onstage but somewhat burdened by having perfected their art on their first few albums. The self-tilting of this 2017 release seems pointed, and luckily it’s easily the most worthwhile product to bear their logo since the mid-nineties. Innovation isn’t really in their remit, but it’s hard to argue with the neck-endangering mastery of groove and dynamics on End It Now or Turned To Stone. Crushing, raw and bristling with aggression.
