As previously reported, OBITUARY has posted its video for the song "On the Floor" at YouTube.com. The clip, which was shot on December 9, 2005 at the Masquerade in Ybor City, Florida with video producer Michael Sarna (MEGADETH's "Of Mice and Men"), can also be seen on the band's MySpace page. Also available at YouTube.com is a video clip of OBITUARY performing the CELTIC FROST cover "Circle of the Tyrants" in 1990 in Tilburg, the Netherlands with James Murphy (DEATH, TESTAMENT) on lead guitar. Check it out at this location.
OBITUARY's first-ever DVD, "Frozen Alive", was released in Europe on December 11 via Metal Mind Productions (to be released in the U.S. on January 16, 2007 through MVD Visual). The disc includes a seven-camera shoot of the Warsaw show plus the "Insane" video, the previously unreleased "On the Floor" video, interviews with Frank Watkins (bass), Trevor Peres (guitar), John (vocals) and Donald Tardy (drums), and three documentaries — the making of "Insane", the making of "Frozen In Time" album, and "Backstage In Poland". A video of OBITUARY performing the song "On the Floor", taken from the "Frozen Alive" DVD, has been posted online at YouTube.com.
OBITUARY's latest CD, "Frozen in Time", was released in July 2005 via Roadrunner Records. The group's first collection of new songs since 1997's "Back from the Dead" was self-produced by the band, with Mark Prator and Scott Burns engineering, and was mastered by Tom Morris at Morrisound.
