Obituary Discuss New Album

Tampa-based death metal legends OBITUARY have issued the following studio update:

"There is so much going on! The most important thing is the recording/mixing of the new CD and that is going amazing! These new songs are so heavy and we are happy and lucky to announce that Ralph Santolla (ex-DEICIDE, ICED EARTH, DEATH) is helping us with some of the guitar work. To have someone like Ralph working with us is totally new to Obituary and I can't tell you how excited we are. This new album, Xecutioners Return, is just coming to life! I know there has been a lot of speculation about what we were going to do for another guitarist now that Allen West is unavailable. It is kind of strange how things work out. We have known Ralph for a long time and it is no surprise how good of a guitar player he is, but what was really nice is how good we work with each other and how good we get along. Not only is Ralph recording with us, but he will also be going with us to Europe in July and on our U.S. Tour in September. We leave for South America tomorrow for the next set of shows and they should be some good ones. We have been to Argentina (a long time ago), but we have never been to Chile or Brazil, so we are looking forward to these shows. When we get home we will finish up the mixing of the new CD and we are on schedule for a late August release!"

Obituary live dates include:

5 - Teatro Teleton - Santiago, Chile *
6 - The Roxy - Buenos Aires, Argentina *
7 - Bar Opiniao - Porto Alegre/RS, Brasil *
8 - Hangar 110 - Sao Paulo/SP, Brasil *

Santolla didn't actually record with Death, you're probably thinking of Andy LaRocque (Who also is incredible, he plays the blazing solo on the ATG song cold).

Now Playing: Khanate - "Dead"

I'd like to see DEICDE's obituary!
OBITUARY, BATHORY, POSSESSED, SLAYER, MORBID ANGEL, SEPULTURA... Hell Yeah!
DEICIDE, KREATOR... fall on a grenade, or wave to a sniper...Now that would be music to my ears!!! I f**king hate generic deathmetal! Well, I guess I shouldn't be too much of a d**k, at least
OBITUARY is still around unlike SEPULTURA(man i miss sepultura). I apologize if I offended any
DEICIDE or KREATOR fans with my comments, they're just not my style. The End is now Complete.
