We’re still hoping that Florida death metal legends Obituary will shed more light on their next album soon (their last came out in 2017), but meanwhile, they’ve got two new live albums: Slowly We Rot – Live and Rotting and Cause of Death – Live Infection. As the titles suggest, these are live recordings of Obituary playing their classic first two albums — 1989’s Slowly We Rot and 1990’s Cause of Death — in full, and they were recorded during the livestream series that Obituary did during COVID lockdown in 2020. Both albums are streaming right now, and they’re coming out as physical albums and films on LP/CD and Blu-ray bundle/digital. We’ve teamed with the band and Relapse Records on exclusive “bone white” vinyl variants of each one, limited to 200 copies. Pre-order yours now while they last, and there’s also an option to bundle both albums together at a special reduced price.

The performances were filmed by Odd Life Studios and directed by Lief Thomason, and the audio was recorded and mixed by long time producer Joe Cincotta, and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege. Here’s a mockup of our exclusive vinyl variants:


As announced earlier this week, Obituary are touring North America with Amon Amarth (headliners), Carcass, and Cattle Decapitation. That amazing quadruple bill hits NYC on December 1 at Hammerstein Ballroom. They also have tours of Latin America and Europe. All dates are listed below.
