As the first fully authorized biography of the Floridian death metal legends, Turned Inside Out: The Official Story of Obituary provides an unprecedented look into their nearly four-decade career through all-new, in-depth interviews with band members past and present, recording engineers, scene contemporaries and music industry veterans who’ve worked directly with the band. Packed with hundreds of rare and never-before-seen photos, as well as a foreword from Max Cavalera, this hardcover book is the definitive story of Obituary.
“This is the first time that we, as a band, have ever officially opened up to the fans,” says Donald Tardy. “We took a look at the past, remembering how it all began in Tampa. We shared stories from the studio and the road, and also the mayhem throughout our career like it really was: the good, the bad and the ugly. ‘Turned Inside Out’ sets the record straight after 35 years – these are the events that made us who we are and the facts that made it history.”
Propelled by the inhuman vocals of John Tardy, the obscenely brutal guitar tone of Trevor Peres and rhythmic brilliance of drummer Donald Tardy, Obituary redefined heaviness throughout the 1990s. From undisputed classics Slowly We Rot and Cause of Death, through an unexpected hiatus to their current creative renaissance, Obituary have pioneered, defined and expanded extreme metal, becoming one of the underground’s most recognized and respected acts.
