Candlelight Records has confirmed September 11th as the U.S. release date for the forthcoming album from death metal legends OBITUARY. Recording of the currently untitled album is already underway with the album’s completion expected for June 1st.

Tampa-based OBITUARY featuring vocalist John Tardy, guitarist Trevor Peres, bassist Frank Watkins and drummer Donald Tardy are one of the genre’s most respected and successful bands. Formed in 1985, the quartet have released six critically-acclaimed albums that have to date sold nearly one million copies in the United States.

Regarding the new cooperation Frank Watkins says, “we are very excited to be part of Candlelight Records. This will mark a new chapter in Death Metal history.” John Tardy says, “we are really looking forward to having a record company that wants to work with us. We feel rejuvenated and this new album is gonna be sick!” Donald Tardy adds, “we couldn’t be more pumped about teaming up with Candlelight. It is an unbelievable feeling to know that a record company cares about our music as much as we do.”

A full U.S. headline tour is set to kick off the week of the album’s release; details to follow.

I thought it was pretty solid... no Cause of Death but better than the wash of generic death metal that floods us today.

Cause and Slowly are their best material by far, but Frozen wasnt bad, better than the crap comming out of sweden these days. In Flames and the haunted ect are sounding fairly washed up now.
Going to look forward to this.
