Great death metal.
Jack
They disbanded for a while, but recently got back together & released another album, "Frozen in Time," which I hear is actually pretty good.

The first four CDs listed above you can get cheap and remastered with these 2-fer sets, which are a good deal.

If you are thinking of buying any Obituary, really you can't go wrong. Every album they made--
Slowly We Rot
Cause of Death
The End Complete
World Demise
Back from the Dead--
all kick much a$$. The first four CDs listed above you can get cheap and remastered with these 2-fer sets, which are a good deal. Their style is blood-gurgling/bass-drum battering death metal that never relents. These two albums just sound mean.
If you already have these CDs, then you may still want to upgrade for a few reasons. This set features 5 demos at the ends of the respective CDs and the other 2-fer has 5 live tracks from way back. The original album covers are included full-size inside the packaging, so don't worry about having to squint to see the Cause of Death painting. The remaster job makes it all a little crisper, but let's be honest, these albums are more-or-less intentionally lo-fi. There aren't any lyrics included, oddly enough. Obituary often wrote some of the best lyrics around, particularly as their career wore on and they became more socially-conscious.
If you are new to Obituary's style of DM, then I have to say they offer a new twist on the typical proceedings. The musicianship is commendable, but John Tardy's vocals are really what sets them apart from other great bands like Suffocation or Pestilence.
Should you buy this album. Yes. Cast a vote for Obituary and send Britney Spears to hell!

if a rotting corpes popped out of the ground & started talking to you, he would sound like john tardy.i heard that on the 1st album ("slowly..") they did'nt even bother to write lyrics for a lot of the songs.he would just scream,growl,grunt,& howl whatever sounded right.this may turn some people off but its so cool to me.this may have came out 4 or 5 years after "scream bloody gore" & "seven churches" but i still consider obituary 5 of the founding fathers of death metal.nothing realy stands out on either album from any other part of either album(did that make sence?).no one band member realy stands out either .they all compliment one another equally here for two well rounded & very entertaining cds.i would have to say, though that if somone asked me what death metal was i'd have to pop in "cause of death" track 7 ,the title track.

this is not at all pretty, or beautiful. i love that. an album that can really create a mood. obituary are a band of simplicity. what more can you want if its just perfect? nothing extreme, or pushing the limit. the vocals are very stand out, and every guitar line is dark, low, fast, to slow. i love it. if you are just looking for a simple death metal CD, from back in the day , this is it.

Format: Audio CD
Obituary was one of the myriad of death metal bands to rise out of Florida in the late '80s, along with bands like Cannibal Corpse, Deicide, and Death. And they are probably the best of those bands. Sure, they're pretty much a more extreme version of Death's first album, but the music IS very good, and there are some doom-metal bits scattered over both these albums. While the albums here aren't as good as their next two albums (with Cause of Death being their career lowpoint), there are enough good songs on here to warrent picking this up. Everything sounds great with the remastering, and there's a few bonus tracks for each album.
On the downside, no lyrics are included (though the vocal are partially understandable). Plus, the cover artwork is horrible. What's with the cheesy, kinda CG looking hands and crypt, with the bands name looking very out of place? Would it have been so hard to simply have the band logo, and pictures of the albums included?
Despite the packaging, this set is still worth picking up for it's low price and great music.

Obituary was one of the main DM bands to come out of Florida in the late 80's- early 90's. They disbanded for a while, but recently got back together & released another album, "Frozen in Time," which I hear is actually pretty good. But I guarentee it DOES NOT beat either of these 2 masterpeices... I don't know which one of these I like better. I'd have to say at 1st I liked "Cause of Death" better, but I've been listening to "Slowly We Rot" again lately, & it's just as good. I recommend this "2 From the vault" double pack because you get BOTH of their original classics remastered and for the same price as you'd pay for just one of them by themselves. Great DM here, get on the ball & get it man!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I found this one at a Borders store I believe it was and was amazed it was even available. Obituary was the first Death Metal band I ever listened to and I had the old CD of "Slowly We Rot" only, and to get their first 2 CD's for a decent price, remastered, with extra tracks was just too much of a good thing I thought. The great part about these types of packages is the amount of space they take up also, I may get the next two CD's also eventually.

Eventually I've gotten into bands like Death, Morbid Angel, and of course who can leave out Possessed and their "Seven Churches" CD..which I guess can be considered an early version of a DM band. Obituary remains my favorite of all time though, "Slowly We Rot" I can listen to over and over, especially in the fall (Halloween season), just sets the mood perfectly at times. My fav song by Obit up to this point was and still is "Chopped In Half" on Cause Of Death also, and it's a decent record also.

Obit to me just had the most extreme DM vocals, no lyrics just like I like it, although like has been said you can understand some of it, or at least I can make out a few growls, I always prefer the vox in DM to be just another instrument. Obit and eventually getting into Deicide were and are still to me the heaviest of the DM bands, Death perhaps took it to the next level, and they are probably the best ever, but as far as pure force and sticking to the original sounds, you gotta love Obituary, to me it's fun music to listen to, it's really pummeling and heavy, and regardless of how simple it seems by todays standards; and we all know how technical and sophisticated DM bands are today and this and that, but to me this stuff is classic DM.
