Obituary name crowdfund album

Obituary have confirmed their ninth album, and their first in five years, is to be called Inked In Blood.

Recording was completed earlier this year after a successful crowdfunding campaign. It’s to be released via Relapse Records.

The band say: “We don’t know how to explain it – but we’ve hit the ‘metal nail’ on the head. We couldn’t be more excited.”

The death metal veterans had previously said the “stars aligned” for them as they worked on the new material, adding: “The band is more solid than ever.”

More details will be confirmed in due course. Obituary play this year’s Bloodstock festival in August as part of a European tour.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
