Obituary’s Donald Tardy to Chaoszine: “The new album is the best stuff we’ve ever done; you’re only as good as the last song you wrote”

Author Flavia Andrade - 4.1.2023

Obituary is about to release their new album, “Dying of Everything”, on January 13, via Relapse Records. The album destroys in the time-honored tradition of early Obituary classics “Slowly We Rot” and “Cause of Death”, while maintaining the killer studio sound that the band has been perfecting in their own studio since 2007’s monstrous “Xecutioner’s Return”.

You can hear the results on lead single “The Wrong Time”, which boasts a slamming mid-tempo groove. Meanwhile, the title track boasts punishing riffs and songwriting by Ken Andrews. The album’s third single, “My Will To Live,” is a total skull-crusher. Track after track, Obituary solidify their legacy as a Death Metal institution, churning out some of the heaviest riffs in their career.

Like just about every album in Obituary’s vast catalog, “Dying Of Everything” is instantly memorable; it’s a skill that they have only improved upon over the years. It’s unusual for a band that’s been around since the ’80s to be doing some of their best work in the 2020s, but that’s exactly what Obituary have accomplished through their do-it-yourself attitude and relentless touring on a worldwide level.

Chaoszine had the opportunity to chat with band founder and drummer Donald Tardy about the new album, their DIY creative process and their plans for the near future, which includes an European tour alongside Trivium, Heaven Shall Burn and Malevolence.
