Why Slowly We Rot Is Metal That Rips Your Head Off

Slowly We Rot” by Tampa Florida by Tampa Florida death metal band Obituary is the heaviest album of all time. That isn’t just my opinion that is a fact. That isn’t just my opinion that is a fact.

What makes the album even more intense is the band does not rely on “down tuning.” The play in E 440 concert pitch, but it sure doesn’t sound like it!

In April 2010, Obituary started to take a shot at new material for their ninth studio collection “Inked in Blood,” when bassist Frank Watkins died from cancer on October 18, 2015.

Obituary is still touring and have Terry Butler handling bass duties from legendary Florida Death.

Look for them on tour with Slayer and 2019! Better yet, pick up “Slowly We Rot” on eBay here.
