Tampa death metal pioneers Obituary have confirmed that their ninth studio album will be called Inked In Blood. It will be their first release in 5 years.

The quintet finished recording earlier this year after a successful crowdfunding campaign, which will be release via Relapse Records.

“We don’t know how to explain it – but we’ve hit the ‘metal nail’ on the head. We couldn’t be more excited,” the band said about the album. They also say that “The band is more solid than ever.”

More details will be posted as they become available.

The band will be performing on the final day of Bloodstock Open Air in August.
