TURNED INSIDE OUT: The Official Story of Obituary by David E. Gehlke (PRE-ORDER)
Tampa, Florida’s Obituary have been a death metal institution since 1984. Guided by the inhuman, if not unfathomably deranged, vocals of John Tardy, the obscenely brutal guitar tone of Trevor Peres and rhythmic brilliance of drummer Donald Tardy, Obituary defined heaviness throughout the 1990s. Their 1989 ‘Slowly We Rot’ and 1990 ‘Cause of Death’ studio albums are undisputed classics, but their live prowess and unwavering dedication to their fans made them one of the metal underground’s most respected bands.
An unexpected five-year hiatus starting in 1998 only saw Obituary’s stature grow when a new generation of bands adopted their sonic trademarks. However, their post-reformation efforts were nearly sidetracked by the perils of the music industry and inter-band tumult. Through the unbreakable bond between the Tardy brothers and Peres, Obituary emerged stronger than ever, entrenched in their rightful position as death metal vanguards.
Penned by David E. Gehlke, author of ‘No Celebration: The Official Story of Paradise Lost,’ and featuring a foreword by Soulfly/Cavalera Conspiracy/ex-Sepultura frontman Max Cavalera, ‘Turned Inside Out: The Official Story of Obituary’ is the first fully authorized biography of Obituary, providing an unprecedented look into the band’s career through in-depth interviews, studio recollections, road stories and scores of exclusive photos. This 328 page tome available exclusively through dB Books.
