Donald 'DT' Tardy (born January 28, 1970)[1] is the drummer of death metal band Obituary and the brother of John Tardy, who is the lead singer of the band. Besides Obituary, they have a band called Tardy Brothers, where, as primary songwriter and engineer, Donald also plays guitar and bass, as well as drums. Donald also played drums for Andrew W.K on the album I Get Wet and was Andrew W.K.'s first touring drummer who also assisted with assembling the original Andrew W.K. lineup.

Donald (along with the entire Obituary band) has a passion for helping cats through their Cat sanctuary organization Metal Meowlisha. When the band is on tour, their wives work hard to keep the organization running.[2]
