Can't really deny the popularity Florida's Obituary seem to experience within hardcore circles. I've been a fan of the band for a long time but my fondness was certainly generated well before I took a stronger interest in anything remotely hardcore. I've never been able to put together just why kids have always taken such an active interest in the band over the many other bands who I consider to be just as worthy of the attention. Most likely the massive riffing they've always been overly adept at using. Anyway, this is a 1997 reissue of their 1989 debut LP ripper, "Slowly We Rot". Black wax pressed by Cargo Records under license from Roadrunner Records. Easily their best stuff, some of the riffing in here is just deadly. The last new material of theirs that I listened to was "Frozen Over" back in something like 2005, but tonight I've downloaded the two LP's that followed that. Curious to hear what they're both like. I read somewhere that they have a new album due this year too.

Nice to see this featured. I loves me some obituary. Cause of death still gets regular spins round at 'screaming for...' towers.
