Obituary to Play the End Complete: Tampa death metal veterans Obituary formed in 1984, right as that extreme metal genre was getting going. The Slowly We Rot debut album was released in ’89, cementing them as major players.

It’s the third album though, 1992’s The End Complete, which remains their most successful. That record sold over 100,000 copies in the US and 250,000 worldwide. Not to be sneezed at for such a niche genre and band.

The band is performing that album in its entirety on Saturday for a livestream, having already played a set of “their favorite songs” last Saturday. Obituary released a statement that read:

“For the past 7 weeks we have locked ourselves inside the studio to prepare for these next studio livestream sessions. Re-learning the now 29 year old The End Complete album and rehearsing many of the bands favorites. We are proud to announce that we are ready to bring our fans the goods and have picked a killer selection of classic songs, rare tracks and The End Complete album performed in its entirety. We have been busting our asses preparing and now WE are ready. Question is…Are YOU? Here we Go!!!!!”
