Legendary doom metallers The Obsessed have signed with Relapse Records and will enter the studio this summer to record their follow up to 1994’s The Church Within. Stream a demo version of “Be The Night” below.
Scott “Wino” Weinrich commented on the signing and reformation of the band:
“The time is now for rebirth of THE OBSESSED. Fueled with the anger, wisdom and energy of all things past, this monumental achievement is the culmination of many years of dogged determination and the belief in the music. This music that we and many others find healing and inspirational. At last it sees the light, uncompromising and laden with passion and intensity that we’ll immortalize on our new album. We’re happy to officially announce our signing with Relapse Records. They also believe in the music and are very understanding of our integrity, vision and aspirations. On tour right now in the USA, we are celebrating this experience with glorious sound. Join us on this golden road. Thanks to all who believe!”
