They may have started down-tuning their guitars, and the vocals may actually be decipherable, but there’s still no mistaking the old-school caveman death metal of Obituary.

The past couple of years have proved to be a bit of a renaissance for the band, and Dying of Everything shows the clear benefits of tweaking your production into the modern age while keeping the metal positively prehistoric. The band is here to show why the dinosaurs reigned for millions of years, and I’m here for it.
