Back in October, death metal humidity-mongers Obituary played two of their most legendary albums in full via livestream, 1989’s Slowly We Rot and 1990’s Cause of Death. Now, the band have scheduled another series of livestreams, and this time they’re including a complete performance of 1992’s The End Complete.
According to a post on their Instagram, Obituary will perform two livestream shows in the near future. The first, on Saturday, March 27th, will feature a selection of the band’s favorite tracks from throughout their career. The second, on Saturday, April 3rd, will include The End Complete performed in its entirety. Both streams start at 5pm EST.
“The CDC has determined that wearing two masks is proven even more effective at helping slow the spread of Covid-19 and though the vaccines are beginning to work around the world to end the pandemic, there is a new virus lurking in the swamps of Florida and we are not out of the woods yet,” wrote the band via their Instagram.
“With that said, we suggest that you triple mask for these next live-streams because one thing’s clear, this is no ordinary virus.
“This is the *Metal-21-Virus and there is no vaccine developed to save you from it so…
“wear your mask &
“KEEP YOUR DISTANCE because
METAL IS CONTAGIOUS!
‘For the past 7 weeks we have locked ourselves inside the studio to prepare for these next studio livestream sessions. Re-learning the now 29 year old The End Complete album and rehearsing many of the bands favorites. We are proud to announce that we are ready to bring our fans the goods and have picked a killer selection of classic songs, rare tracks and The End Complete Album performed in its entirety. We have been busting our asses preparing and now WE are ready.
“Question is…Are YOU?
“Here we Go!!!!!”
Tickets for the streams can be picked up at the band’s livestream portal site.
