There’s been no shortage of great death metal this year, and there’s still several more anticipated albums that are going to see a release before the year’s end. One of those is the new album from death metal legends Obituary, entitled Inked In Blood, and if the new track they released from the album today is any indication, we likely have another superb death metal release on our hands. Bang your head after the jump.

This track is great. Obituary are not attempting to reinvent the wheel, and why should they? They’re one of the bands that invented the wheel in the first place. Inked In Blood is sure to appease fans of the classic, Florida death metal sound, yet fans of the newer wave of death metal will probably find something to like here as well. The mid-tempo groove of the song is as brutal as it is infectious and calls to mind the glory days of death metal.
Inked in Blood comes out on Oct. 28 via Relapse. Pre-order here.
