Cause of Death is the second album by American death metal band Obituary and considered a classic album in the history of death metal. It is their first release with longtime member Frank Watkins on bass, and also their first and only album with guitarist James Murphy, previously of the group Death.

The artwork was done by artist Michael Whelan, the original art is titled "Lovecraft's nightmare". The cover art of this album was used in an H.P. Lovecraft collection, Bloodcurdling Tales of Horror and the Macabre, and part of it was used in The Tomb and The Doom That Came to Sarnath paperbacks. It was supposed to be the cover of Sepultura's album Beneath the Remains, but Roadrunner Records let Obituary use it first. Roadrunner Records forced Sepultura to use another Michael Whelan illustration for Beneath the Remains.
