How not to get in the obituaries - arrival Obituary

May 26 2006

History of the classics of California Death-metal began 22 years ago in 1984 in a small quiet town of Brandon, when two brothers, John and Donald Terdi along with their other guitarist Trevor Peres formed his own group under the "cute" name "Xecutioner".

John practiced in the vocals, Donald on drums, Trevor on lead guitar. Bassist looking for was not long, it became Daniel Trucker, at the same time and found another guitarist Allen West. Such a number of musicians in the "Xecutioner" contributed to the original high quality new band's sound and appearance-based stiffness in the first games played compositions. In this final part of the group exists and sow per day. In those years the team members have raised the already aggressive potential future founder of Death-metal genre to new heights. The Group initially as hundreds of others playing Thrash-metal, but in the very first compositions, we feel that this is something else. During his meteoric career Obituary quickly became the benchmark for all newcomers to the metal scene.

His first album the band recorded only 5 years after its founding. At a regular concerts and has renamed the group noticed a label Roadrunner Records - both signed the first contract. On this major label have been released all records of the group. C appeared in 1989, a monumental Thrash-Death creatures "Slowly We Rot" five young musicians from Florida, quickly took its place in the then still very young American "alternative" scene. Together with the same young bands like Morbid Angel, Death and Deicide, they formed the most aggressive genre of music that combines unheard ultrafast dirty guitar riffs, dynamic drums, complex arrangements, murderous lyrics and extreme growling vocals. That's great vocal soloist John shows us how to be a "growl". Rejecting the conventional lyric texts (theme politics, love and elves are not peculiar to this area in the metal), the eldest of the brothers just used his amazing voice as another "tool" like a bass guitar. All this was reflected in the second album, "Cause Of Death "which appeared in the 1990th year. Then took place and the first tour group to Europe, and performance on a couple of festivals, including the Dynamo Open Air in the Netherlands.

In 1992, a career in the group happened next event: their third album "The End Complete" contributed to the final and triumphant breakthrough Obituary to a well-deserved fame. "Te End Complete" is considered the strongest of the plate. Death-metal album became the first "metal" plate, which managed to enter the German Top 100 (considered the world and the most objective measure).

Subsequent releases 1994 "World Demise" was a revelation to all the fans. In terms of written lyrics, performance and the overall direction the album was "a real end of the world" and has presented many new fans «Death-metal» hymns. Such songs as "Final Thoughts" and "Don't Care" and to this day the group performed in concerts. These compositions, even today remain the most popular in the band.

After a three-year lull, namely in 1997, came fifth work Obituary - "Back From The Dead", which caused a sigh of relief from many, many fans of "Floridians." Group were gradually forgotten, and the fans perceived the fifth release as a sign of a return to the lives of their pets. The record contains one hundred percent hits Death-metal, such as "Threatening Skies", "Download" or "By The Light" and proved once again that the group of all living things alive.

Oh, what Obituary, from the beginning of her career, has been one of the strongest Death-band world, apparently.

Over the last year the team finally got rid of annoying «Roadrunner Records», and were able to record a new creative album. The Group has made a huge tour and performed on a pair of European festivals, including Wacken Open Air, and The Sky Festival. Was withdrawn the next video clip for the song "On the Floor" from a concert in his native Florida.

This is confirmed by recent record "Frozen In Time" released in the summer of 2005 on a new label. Engaged in producing musicians together with Mark Pratt. As an assistant engineer was invited by Scott Burns, and mastered by Tom Morris headed. Obituary not change themselves, their fans and their creativity, they still make the darkest heavy sound. Their skill and talent are beyond competition, and new work continues the traditions established 20 years ago.
