OBITUARY - FROZEN ALIVE (DVD) - METAL MIND  
It seems that the much maligned Florida quintet have been in and out of the scene too many times, the acclaim, or lack thereof, for The End Complete and World Demise and Allen West’s stint at Six Feet Under haven’t really helped Obituary over the years. All of which makes this even more surprising. The quality of the live performance and most recent songs will shock many. The 23-song live show, another recorded in Warsaw, Poland is better than one what might expect from any band let alone these 21-year scene veterans. The set includes the very early in Slowly We Rot, Internal Bleeding and Find The Arise all the way to a selection from 2005’s Frozen In Time album in Redneck Stomp, On The Floor and Insane. The latter is where the true surprise appears because Insane is a song that in and by itself is the best in what a death metal song should be, heavy and fast riffs, barks and growls, and a drummer abusing his kit. If there is a 'surprise of the year' category, somewhere Obituary should be on or near the top. As in any DVD there are a few bonus material. In this case they consist of two video clips, footage from a Donald Tardy drum solo at a Romanian show, a 'making of', some backstage footage and two separate interviews where the members of the band, minus West, talk about the past and the present whilst throwing a few cliché bones for all hungry fans and non-fans alike, but here the music does indeed speak much louder. - Anna Tergel
