US old-school death metal legends, OBITUARY, are releasing their tenth album overall on March 17, 2017 on RELAPSE RECORDS. The release is self-titled. This will be their first album released since ‘Inked In Blood’ (2013). They have already posted two selections from the album (“Turned To Stone” and “Sentence Day”) online. OBITUARY have become the AC/ DC of death metal over the last few years, much like BOLT THROWER. And by that, I mean that they literally have only one song, but that song kicks so much ass that you overlook it time and time again. With that being said, this band still plays great old-school guttural death metal that fans still love. Check out the teaser trailer for the new self-titled album on the YouTube link below as well as the links for “Turned to Stone” and “Sentence Day”. Be sure to catch them on their US tour with German thrash metal heavyweights, KREATOR.

I grew up in northern California during the 1980s and have been an AVID heavy metal fan since 1982. Having experienced the Bay Area thrash metal scene first hand, thrash metal will always be at my core, However, I am also a huge fan of death metal, doom metal, traditional heavy metal, stoner rock/metal and old-school black metal. If it concerns any of those sub-genres, (to borrow a quote from Christopher Walken in 'THE KING OF NEW YORK') "I want in on it!!". Cheers, ya rivet-heads!!
