Death metal legends Obituary make their Relapse Records debut with Inked In Blood, their 9th full length LP. Inked in Blood will be released October 28th in North America (UK/World October 27th and Germany/Benelux/Finland on October 24th) via Relapse Records. Almost three decades in, Inked In Blood stands out as one of the finest moments in Obituary‘s already godlike discography.
Beginning today, Inked in Blood is available for pre-order from Relapse Records and via iTunes. The album will be released on CD/Deluxe CD/2xLP/Digital/Deluxe Digital. The limited edition, one time press deluxe CD includes two exclusive bonus songs and is packaged in a 3D embossed digipak along with a die-cut album cover sticker. The bonus songs, available on the deluxe CD and digital versions, are two classic tracks (“Intoxicated” and “Bloodsoaked”), from ‘Slowly We Rot’, re-recorded this year live out of Morrisound Studios in Tampa, FL and engineered by legendary death metal producer Jim Morris. A special vinyl color will be available exclusively via each of the following means: North American Indie Stores, Florida record stores, Relapse.com and for Kickstarter backers.
Today the first full offering from Inked in Blood has been released. Check out an exclusive stream of the song “Visions in My Head” on Sound Cloud below. The song is now available as an instant grat track and is available for immediate download when the album is pre-ordered on iTunes.
