OBITUARY – released their Left To Die EP on September 16, 2008, on Candlelight USA/Gibtown Records. This EP contains four songs and one bonus CD ROM video of  Evil Ways. Check out this Evil Ways video below… it’s unreal great, Obituary just lets it groove with their Death Metal brand, along with this video’s underground ambiance and feel.

Two of the songs on Left To Die are also on the full length studio album – Darkest Day, which was released June 30, 2009, on Candlelight USA/Gibtown Records. These two songs are: Forces Realign and Left To Die. Slowly We Rot is a 2008 re-recording of the title track from their legendary debut album from 1989 – Slowly We Rot.

The cover song Dethroned Emperor, is a fantastic tribute to the iconic and extreme Celtic Frost, a song in which Celtic Frost released back in 1984 on their debut album – Morbid Tales. This song is noted as an additional song, on the USA release version of Morbid Tales. Obituary brings to the forefront, a beyond fabulous song from Celtic Frost’s early beginning… it’s Metal history.

Left To Die is without Metal question, a MUST for any Obituary and/or Death Metal fan. You are getting the Evil Ways video, the cover version of Dethroned Emperor and a 2008 re-recording of Slowly We Rot, plus two tracks from the Darkest Day release. There is credible Death Metal bang for your buck with this Left To Die EP. This is Obituary material that is patented Death Grooves from these legendary originators of Death Metal. Deathly doom and Metal gloom never sounded so unreal great.

Obituary, as they appeared on the Left To Die EP and Darkest Day album:

John Tardy – vocals

Donald Tardy – drums

Trevor Peres – guitar

Ralph Santolla – guitar

Frank Watkins – bass

Obituary "Darkest Day" album banner 2009

 

 

Obituary "Darkest Day" small cover picAlright, I am more than thrilled at this new Obituary album, “Darkest Day”, I am enthralled with Metal jubilation. Death Metal jubilation. I am also reminded as to why I am lured into the heaviest, most Metal bludgeoning genre there is… it is Obituary. These guys are not about making nice with the trend setters… forget about it. Obituary is Old School Death Metal lathered with extreme. Understand, however, that Obituary delivers grooves by the Death Metal bushels. From it’s deadly beginning track – “List of Dead” to it’s deadly ending “Left To Die”, I am going out on a Metal limb here by stating… “Darkest Day” is one of 2009’s best Metal albums period. Being one of the true forefathers of the Death Metal genre, Obituary lays their Death Metal cards out on the table here, you either are with them or with them. This is not a Death Metal band that you just want to try out, if you buy an Obituary album, you are either a fan or your about to become one. 

“Outside My Head” is like a Death Metal march to take over the Metal Universe, Donald Tardy on drums is as decidedly relentless as a yellow jacket wasp, stinging it’s prey. “Your Darkest Day” has it’s vintage nod to Doom with riffs that will either scare the hell out of you or make you beg for more… I beg for more, please. Tony Iommi of Black Sabbath should feel so proud, that a Death Metal band of the caliber like Obituary, can incorporate the early Metal years – feel and vibe to their music… without straying away from the Death Metal manuscript of today. Obviously, this is my Metal opinion, what one Metalhead hears within “Darkest Day” can severely differ from another. “See Me Now” is extremely heavy – underscored, my choice pick as favorite track. John Tardy on vocals only enhances the seething heaviness of “See Me Now”. For that matter, John Tardy just flat out enhances this entire album with his vintage and aggressive vocals, this is all about vocal confidence and not being over the top.

By the time I hear “Truth Be Told”, it feels like “Darkest Day” has only lasted five minutes… it is that unreal good. Ordinarily, with an average Death Metal up and coming band, “Truth Be Told” would be their greatest song – with Obituary, every song here can be considered as great. What can be said about Trevor Peres and Ralph Santolla on guitars? They are damn good, no, damn unreal good. Lest not forget Frank Watkins on bass, he keeps the Death Metal rhythm moving at a fiery pace, giving me every reason to suffer from whiplash. Cool. Acknowledgment of Metal greatness is priority number one whenever I discuss the Metal genres with anyone or post on Metal Odyssey. My Metal goal is to get the word out about unreal heavy bands and/or albums… the word on “Darkest Day” is this – real, extreme and forged with Death Metal integrity. “Darkest Day”… Metal ownership of this album is a must, (what am I thinking), it is required. Obituary… Death Metal legends.
