The Obsessed Have Returned to Doom Us Right in the Face Once Again


Last I heard anything about legendary doom metal supergroup The Obsessed was at Maryland Deathfest 2013, where the band played a set that was widely considered unusually lousy due to sound issues. It was a shame, too, as they’re one of the great American doom metal bands, and didn’t deserve to go out like that.

Well, all’s well that ends well, as frontman and lifer Scott “Wino” Weinrich has posted the following:

Grim Kim be praised! Man, could there be anything scarier than receiving a communiqué with the opening line, “This is Wino”?

Anyway, congrats to Wino and the guys! We know Weinrich has had a tough time of it in recent years, what with the whole “deported from Norway for possession of a shitload of meth” thing, but it’s great to see he’s still dedicated to bringing grimy stoner riffs to eager creatures like myself.

We’ll let you know when further album details are announced. Until then, get baked and jam out to “Climate of Despair.”
