Obituary’s Don Tardy – My 10 favorite albums when I was a teenager

Obituary drummer Don Tardy is here to share his 10 favorite albums when he was a teenager.

When it comes to Obituary and its co-founding drummer, influences are impossible to ignore, from their own personal inspirations to the inspiration they’ve had on countless others. The iconic Florida death metal brigade are among the most instantly recognizable acts – Don’s brother Jon emits CHUD-like vocals on every swampy, brick-like track, going heavy on the groove and never daring to unleash a blast beat.

Fans can expect more of the patented style on To die of everythingObituary’s 11th full-length album and follow-up to 2017’s self-titled affair, with the singles “The Wrong Time”, “Will to Live” and the title track serving as further proof that more than 30 years removed from their influential Slowly we rot debut, this band is still best in class.

And you can still hear Tardy’s childhood influences, such as Black Sabbath and Dio drummer Vinny Appicehis sense of restraint and power as he delivers another kit-shattering performance on the latest record.
