Obituary is an American death metal band founded in 1984 in Tampa, Florida, by singer John Tardy and his brother, drummer Donald Tardy. The band quickly gained popularity in the underground metal scene, attracting fans with their unique and aggressive style.

Some of their best songs include Chopped in Half, Slowly We Rot, Cause of Death, and Don't Care. Each song features blistering guitar riffs, thunderous drumming, and Tardy's vicious vocals. The band has a reputation for their crushing live performances, with their music drawing crowds from all around the world. Fans often describe their concerts as a visceral and cathartic experience, leaving them breathless and begging for more.
Obituary is considered to be one of the pioneers of the death metal genre, known for their dark and uncompromising music that influenced multiple bands. Their music is characterized by aggressive guitar riffs, blast beats, and guttural vocals. Unlike other death metal bands, Obituary incorporates a lot of groove elements into their music, creating a unique style that is instantly recognizable. Their sound is raw, energetic, and downright brutal – a perfect combination for metalheads who love fast, heavy music.
One of the most famous concerts Obituary ever played was at the Dynamo Open Air Festival in 1992, which drew a staggering 118,000 fans over the two-day event.
