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 fourdecade
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.
