Saturday night (March 27th), Obituary played their fourth livestream concert of the pandemic, following up October’s three-part series that found the group delivering full-album performances of Slowly We Rot and Cause of Death plus playing a special set of deep cuts. For their latest livestream, the Floridian death-metal veterans busted out a set list comprised of the band’s own favorite songs, and among the many highlights was a surprise cover of Power Trip’s “Executioner’s Tax (Swing of the Axe),” which they dedicated to the Texas thrash crew’s late, great frontman, Riley Gale. Even better, the performance saw them joined by Power Trip guitarists Blake Ibanez and Nick Stewart. Watch above. Obituary’s next livestream is set for April 3rd when they’ll play their third album, 1992’s The End Complete, in its entirety — tickets are available now.
