Frank Mullen didn’t want the moment to end. After several years of scaled-back commitments with his band Suffocation, retirement was finally in sight for the 48-year-old, who during the past three decades has garnered a reputation as not only one of the most ferocious vocalists in the death-metal subgenre but also, improbably, one of the most entertaining. The last hometown show on his final run of North American shows with the band, dubbed the Farewell Frank Tour, had entered the home stretch. The Long Island quintet, a hard-touring act with a rabid international following and secure elder statesmen status in their style, was onstage Friday at New York’s Gramercy Theatre, playing one of its “hits,” “Liege of Inveracity,” the opening track off its 1991 debut, Effigy of the Forgotten .

“We’re the cavemen of metal,” Obituary drummer Donald Tardy proudly tells Rolling Stone . “There’s no two ways around it.” Tardy’s older brother John, the band’s vocalist, agrees. Although Obituary may be world renowned as pioneers of death metal, he’s wary of people who file them under corny, pedantic subgenres. “It’s one of those things that bothers me a little bit, how it just gets so separated,” says John in his prominent Florida twang. “For a while, almost every band that came out that maybe sounded a little bit different: ‘Oh, that’s a different kind of metal.’ [Obituary] definitely go into a heavy-metal category, but for me, it can kind of just stop there, and whether you want to call it nine different things, it goes back to the roots, the Black Sabbaths of the world that just go back to basic blues.” For more than 30 years, Obituary have operated as one of the most consistent bands in their scene, while at the same time opting out of the arms race that has consumed … [Read more...] about Obituary Talk Three-Decade Quest for the Perfect ‘Meat-and-Potatoes’ Groove
