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