The riffs, groove, snarl and rage are as fierce as ever, putting most all other contemporary death metal bands to shame. OBITUARY are THE definitive death metal band, and Inked In Blood is an instant classic amongst their already storied catalog. OBITUARY are both the originators and the torchbearers of the genre. Inked In Blood is the sound of true death metal kings reclaiming their throne!!!
In support of their new album, OBITUARY will be hitting the road this fall in the US. They will begin with an appearance at East Coast Tsunami in Reading, PA on September 27th. Following those dates, OBITUARY hits the road with Carcass, Exhumed and Noisem from October 28th through November 9th. Then after a quick break the band will provide direct support for the upcoming “Death to All” Tour. The tour kicks off November 14th in Los Angeles, CA and runs through December 7th in Miami, FL.
