HOLY SH*T! I cannot explain how much this album means to me. I bought The End Complete over 2 years ago and I still listen to it almost every day. This album defines all that real death metal should be. John Tardy is really an underrated vocalist. He has one of the most original growls and voices in all of death metal. Allen West and Trever Peres, what a great combination of guitars. Don Tardy is an underrated drummer, he is really good compared with most death metal drummers. Every song on this album is heavy as Hell and played perfectly. This is one of the best produced albums ever, complementary of Scott Burns who produced most death metal in the 80s and 90s. FYI, this is the also the best selling death metal album of all time...over 250,000 copies, no death band has sold that high! This CD is a brutal masterpiece, Any true death metal head should own this. Peace!

Favoring slow, crawling riffs over blast beats and showing more Celtic Frost influence than Slayer, Obituary has always been unique in death metal. Obituary's music is the true sonic equivalent of ravenous undead corpses scratching and clawing their way out of the cold grave by moonlight. Woe to the living!
For "The End Complete," Obituary stripped their sound back. Gone are the "Cause of Death" era's atmospheric sound effects and neoclassical soloing. What's left is an album that's different, but no less intense and engaging. Original lead guitarist Allen West returns after a one-album hiatus, bringing an atonal, dive-bombing style to the solos that complements Trevor Peres' gloomy riffs. John Tardy's throat-murdering vocals are arguably more intense and emotional than ever (aided by the most deranged vocal layering I have ever heard), and his brother Donald's drumming mixes equal parts groove and thrash.
The result is arguably one of the heaviest, most groove-laden and unique metal albums of all time. In places, the riffs and rhythms reach an almost tribal, trance-inducing pitch. Particularly the last minute of the title track. This album would get more than five stars if I could give them. If you like heavy music, you must obtain this album!

Alan West returns to Obituary and the result is 1992's "The End Complete" -the epitome of what a Death Metal album should be.

From the opening feedback and John Tardy's "UnAowhroahhhhhh!" you just know it gonna be great. West comes in with a wild solo and then Obituary keeps delivering the goods.

The drumming is good with lots of tom on double-bass fills, and lots of heavy cymbal beatings. John Tardy's vocals have never sounded better, not only because his voice is decipherable, but because the throaty nature fits the heavy music so well. His also makes better use of his vocal range on this album. And who could forget the dual axeman of Peres and West -which goes between the sludgy main guitar to West's wild soloing and then back again. The production is great as always, would we expect anything less from Scott Burns?

Simply put the best written and arranged Obituary album. Best Obituary album? It is a close tie between this and 1989's "Slowly We Rot" but I think "The End Complete" has the edge. This was also one of the best selling Death Metal albums of all time, if not THE best selling Death Metal album, selling more than 500,000 copies 1/2 of which in the first year and a half alone. And while Obituary would go the political route with their next album and then descend into literal retirement, you can always listen to this album and point to a time where Obituary had it all going for them. And while the Death Metal genre has been swallowed by self-parody and the ability not to make good music since about 1995, it good to know that you can listen to the "old days" when Florida Metal was rich and ambituous as exampled by "The End Complete".

God, I love Obituary. They are no truly one of the greatest and I DO mean one of the greatest death metal bands of all time. I've been a fan of theirs guys ever since I bought both 1989's "Slowly We Rot" and 1990's "Cause of Death" (which were both death metal classics and some of my favorite death metal albums I own) about four years back, and I still listen to them both to this day forward. Then a year later, I would go on to buy both 1994's "World Demise", and of course the album that I'am reviewing right now 1992's "The End Complete". Released in the year of 1992, Obituary's third studio album "The End Complete" is a true death metal classic. This album is also (from research that I did) is the best selling death metal album of all time as well. To me, "The End Complete" is arguably one of Obituary's best albums as well as being their best written album too. John Tardy is one of the best death metal vocalists of all time, and one of my favorites as well. His vocals on here are some of the most harsh, sickest, gutteral, and best sounding on here, I mean he just sounds like a freakin beast. Lead guitarist Allen West and rhythm guitarist Trevor Peres are both great guitarists. They both rip, tear, and slaughter through every song with heavy chainsaw like buzzing riffs, and Allen's solos are just absolutely fast, ripping, and wild throughout. Frank Watkins's bass is pretty good, and Donald Tardy's drumming is just great on here as well with plenty of great double bass kick action. Every song is a classic but my favorites on here are "I'm in Pain" "Back to One", "Sickness", "Killing Time", "In the End of Life", "Corrosive", and "The End Complete".Read more ›
