OBITUARY

Second re-release of the debut full-length studio album by legendary American Death Metal band.
If Death Metal first came to life during the mid- to late '80s courtesy of bands like Florida's Death ("Scream Bloody Gore"), another Florida band, Obituary, brought it to fruition in 1989 with "Slowly We Rot". These five guys took what bands like Death and the San Francisco Bay Area's Possessed had done to a new level of Deathliness. The music of Obituary wasn't simply an Extreme form of Slayer-esque Speed Metal with ghastly vocals; it was full-fledged Death Metal, with down-tuned guitar riffs of monstrous size, painful-sounding growls and moans for vocals, and distinct tempo changes that often brought the songs down to a lumbering Doomy tempo (a revolutionary thing at the time of release) rather relentlessly breakneck speeds à la Thrash. As one of the pioneers of this genre, they created a heavy album where everything was monstrous. From their down-tuned guitar riffs, deep growls and moans and distinct tempo changes.
Obituary's debut album was a ground-breaking release at the end of the 1980s. They were blazing a new trail, along with other Florida peers like Morbid Angel and, a bit later, Deicide, Malevolent Creation, and Cannibal Corpse. It is the only Obituary album to feature bassist Daniel Tucker. Lead guitarist Allen West would leave soon after, but returned for the third album, "The End Complete". Despite being recorded in standard tuning and with Fender Stratocasters, it is considered to be one of the band's heavier efforts. The remainder of the band's output has been recorded in D tuning.
"Slowly We Rot" is a historically significant album, not only in the context of Obituary's career but, more importantly, in the context of Death Metal in general. This is partly where it all began -- here and across the Atlantic, where the Grindcore bands of Earache were carving out their own niche, one that would soon overlap with that of Obituary and their peers...
