Xecutioner's Return is the seventh studio album by the American death metal band Obituary. The name is derived from Obituary's original band name, which was Xecutioner. It was released on August 28, 2007. It is also their first album since Cause of Death to be recorded without guitarist Allen West. Though hailed as a partial return to the more speed-based style of the band's early work, it received mixed reviews from fans. First album to feature guitarist Ralph Santolla.
