While Obituary is nice for reporting deaths in raid, for the OPs request, I'd advise Grim Reaper or DeathNote (I choose to use the latter), this allows you to see everything that happened to you, prior to each death. I only use it sometimes but I believe you can scroll back 20secs+, and you can toggle the display to show buffs gained/lost, healing recieved, etc.The list of deaths can also be sorted by time they occurred, or by player (it shows deaths for everyone in party/raids). The display of each attack consists of the time stamp, the spell name (hover over to see tooltip), health after it occured (showed as a bar, hover over for detailed health info), and the change in health.

Added in Death Note. I absolutely love that addon and it completely slipped my mind.

What Lazy Shaman needs is an Awesome Button, programmed to send keystrokes instead of words. Very easy to do. http://blog.makezine.com/archive/2011/04/the-awesome-button.html

Recount is pretty good for that purpose, too. You can get some detailed information from the "Deaths" window.

I'll second what dj.clayden said above: Death Note tracks everyone in the raid, not just me. Events are filterable and sortable. A very nice tool for a quick post mortem analysis of what went wrong.After a wipe, I'll often go back and look at what happened to key personnel in the seconds before they died. Sometimes I find that it was, indeed, my fault. ;-)

I like Acheron for this, personally. I can see everything that happened to everyone in raid and in combat log range (incoming damage, heals, buffs, debuffs, etc.) for a set amount of time before their death. I've been using the addon for probably a few years now, so it's possible it's been surpassed by another, but it's always worked well for me.
