OBITUARY’s Don Tardy – “SLAYER Was My Favorite Band Then And They Are Still My Favorite Band Now”

The Asbury Park Press caught up with Obituary drummer Don Tardy and he revealed his love undying love for Slayer.

The band used to play Slayer covers in the mid-‘80s and Tardy said, “We loved playing Slayer songs but it came time for us to work on our material.”

As for becoming a faster and heavier band than Slayer, Tardy said, “It somehow evolved in that manner. Slayer was my favorite band then and they are still my favorite band now.”
