There’s no such thing as a bad Obituary album.
If you like one (Cause Of Death is our particular favourite), you generally love ’em all. Why? Because these cavemen of death metal don’t fuck with a winning formula – and nor would we want them to!
With a 5 year gap between albums, we’re fuckin’ thrilled to say that Dying Of Everything finds these legends delivering yet another cold, hard slab of neanderthal riffs, oodles of chest-beating groove and a vocal performance from John Tardy that shows zero signs of ageing.
Progressive, Dying Of Everything is not. Head-bangable to the extreme it most definitely is!
“Barely Alive” is the quintessential Obituary album opener – ferociously heavy and instantly recognisable. The redneck stomp continues with the insanely catchy “The Wrong Time” and, unsurprisingly, this trend continues for a further 8 tracks of mostly mid-tempo, riff-based death fuckin’ metal. Obituary simply smash and we’re not above saying that this is the best they’ve sounded in quite some time.
Dying Of Everything is an Obituary album. You already know if you’re gonna like it or not! 8/10
