Penned by David E. Gehlke, author of ‘No Celebration: The Official Story of Paradise Lost,’ ‘Turned Inside Out: The Official Story of Obituary’ is the only fully authorized biography of Obituary, providing an unprecedented look into the band’s career through in-depth interviews with band members past and present, recording engineers, scene contemporaries and music industry veterans who’ve worked directly with the band throughout Obituary’s nearly four-decade career, studio recollections, road stories and scores of exclusive photos.

Florida’s Obituary have been a death metal institution since 1984. Guided by the inhuman and 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. Early releases such as ‘Slowly We Rot’ and 1990 ‘Cause of Death’ have proved undisputed classics, and 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.

Includes a special foreword from by the legendary Max Cavalera (SEPULTURA, SOULFLY).

This edition limited to 500 copies.
