Ten Thousand Ways to Day by Obituary features two new songs, as well as live recordings of Obituary's greatest hits. The new full length album is expected for Spring 2017.

 Whereas two tracks really isn't very much to say anything about, it is the live songs that shine on this album. Admittedly, in a career of 30 years, you can compile some Greatest Hits – and Obituary sure has some fist-pounding brutal death metal songs that work great on stage.

In terms of the new songs – I'm not so sure. I'm looking forward to judge the new material based on the new album. The two new tracks, “Loathe” and “Ten Thousand Ways To Die” sound a bit uninspired and out-dated, as if today is still 2003.

In short: unless you collect all Obituary material, you can skip this album and wait for the full length next spring instead.
