When drummer Donald Tardy isn't bringing the neck-breaking grooves with Obituary, he's rescuing cats with his Metal Meowlisha cat rescue charity. Metal Meowlisha is operated by Tardy and his girlfriend, and were recently featured for a mini-spotlight on CNN about all the good they're doing. Sure it's heartwarming, but it's also pretty nuts that Obituary made it to CNN.
"All I do while I'm home from tour is before I eat my dinner, I load up my truck with food and fresh water," said Tardy about his nightly Metal Meowlisha duties. "I'm like a UPS driver. I have a route every night. It takes me about two and a half hours. I bring them fresh water and food."
Obituary recently released their new record Dying Of Everything, which our reviewer called "one more reason why they deserve their legendary status."
