Biography

Obituary is one of the pioneering bands of the death metal genre. The band came from Tampa, Florida, and was founded as Executioner in 1985, and then changed their name to Xecutioner to avoid confusion with the other one. In 1988, shortly before the release of their first album "Slowly We Rot", they changed their name to Obituary. Obituary is considered an influential band in the Florida death metal movement that arose in the late 1980s. The 1990 release "Cause of Death" featured James Murphy on guitar (Cancer and Disincarnate) replacing Allen West for unknown reasons. This release has been described as a seminal album in the Death Metal genre. Vocalist John Tardy is recognized as one of the first vocalists to use an abnormally low growl (compared to the screechy growls used by predecessors Death and Possessed).

    Kill all.
    Fight death.
    Lesions fighting love.
    Fight them all in a living hell.
    Slowly rot and you die.

    Chopped in half
    Feel the blood spill from your mouth
    With rotting ways comes destiny
    Feel the soul taking over, bleed!

    Write down! what I say!
    Fall back the evil way!
    Hold on words of prey...
    Burned in, the minds decay!
    Stand forth, lies pay!
