Florida-based American death metal legends and veterans Obituary, five years after releasing their last record, have finally announced their new album, titled Dying Of Everything and due out January 13, 2023 on Relapse Records. To brighten fans’ expectations, the band also released the first single from the album, The Wrong Time, which features a video and can be viewed below. The video was produced by Odd Life Studios. The band itself stated the following:
We couldn’t be more excited to FINALLY get this new album out and into the hands of the fans! We chose The Wrong Time for the first single as it is a true depiction of the sound, style and feel we went for in the studio and is a great taste of what you can expect from Dying Of Everything.
All in all the first single is quite a mid-tempo mix of death metal and groove, but it sounds great.
And here’s what the label says about the new album:
Dying Of Everything destroys in the time-honored tradition of early OBITUARY classics Slowly We Rot and Cause of Death while maintaining the killer studio sound that the band has been perfecting in their own studio since 2007’s monstrous Xecutioner’s Return.
You can hear the results on lead single “The Wrong Time” which boasts a slamming mid-tempo groove. Meanwhile, the title track boasts punishing riffs and songwriting by Ken Andrews. The album’s third single, “My Will To Live,” is a total skull-crusher. Track after track, OBITUARY solidify their legacy as a Death Metal institution, churning out some of the heaviest riffs in their career.
Like just about every album in OBITUARY’s, Dying Of Everything is instantly memorable; it’s a skill that OBITUARY have only improved upon over the years. It’s unusual for a band that’s been around since the ’80s to be doing some of their best work in the 2020s, but that’s exactly what OBITUARY have accomplished through their do-it-yourself attitude and relentless touring on a worldwide level. “I think it comes down to passion,” vocalist John Tardy offers. “I say this all the time, but if something’s not fun, I’m not gonna do it. And we’re having more fun than ever.”
