Obituary is a DeathMetal band from Tampa, Florida. The band is considered one of the first true death metal bands, having emerged only a few short years after Possessed, Death, and the like. They were originally named Xecutioner, but changed it for unknown reasons. The band is the 5th best-selling death metal band of all time. They are known for their simplistic yet crushing sound, as well as their vocalist John Tardy's style, which consists of mainly clearer shouts as opposed to their genre's usual [[HarshVocals death growls]]. Their debut album, ''Slowly We Rot'', was released in 1989. Their next album, ''Cause of Death'', is considered to be a classic in the death metal genre. Afterwards, the band released 3 more albums before breaking up in 1997; ''The End Complete'', ''World Demise'', and ''Back from the Dead''. They broke up because they were bored with touring. The band got back together 6 years later, and released their first album in 8 years since their breakup, ''Frozen in Time'', in 2005 to critical acclaim. The album also features one of their best-known songs; the instrumental track 'Redneck Stomp'. Two more albums were made and released by the band since, those two being ''Xecutioner's Return'' (a ShoutOut to their original name) and ''Darkest Day''. A ninth album, or fourth since their reunion, was slated for 2012, but a couple years of DevelopmentHell ended up pushing it to 2014. They have partnered with Relapse Records to release and promote the album, but it is currently not known if they will ink a deal with them. The album will be released October 28, 2014 and will be called ''Inked in Blood''.

* SavedFromDevelopmentHell: The ninth album slipped into DevelopmentHell for a while after the band's release from Candlelight and subsequent inability to find a new label, and they ended up having to set up a Kickstarter to raise funds for an independent release. However, the band was able to raise $60,000 on a goal of $10,000, guaranteeing both the album's release and a set of documentary-style mini-films shot at Morrisound.

* ExecutiveMeddling: Rumored to have played a role in both the lower quality of ''Back From the Dead'' and the band's 1998 break-up. Given that Roadrunner had already [[ScrewedByTheNetwork axed every other death metal band on the label]], this seems likely.
