about

Doom godfathers THE OBSESSED return with Sacred, their first studio album in over 20 years. Led by legendary frontman Scott "Wino" Weinrich (Saint Vitus, Spirit Caravan, The Hidden Hand, etc.), THE OBSESSED originally formed in 1976 and released three seminal stoner / doom albums in the early 90's, including The Church Within which has been hailed as one of the important records in the genre's history. Now, after reforming in 2016, the band has returned with renewed energy and purpose, sounding heavier and more relevant than ever before. On Sacred, THE OBSESSED double down on enormous, heaving riffs and pummeling low-end across 12 tracks of eternal doom. Rounded out by Wino's lyrical honesty and iconic throaty vocals, Sacred is an album that further pushes THE OBSESSED into the annals of heavy metal history and that was well worth the two-plus decade wait.

Limited edition DELUXE 2xLP comes with 2 additional bonus tracks.

Track Name: Punk Crusher
Star, Lord, Father
Give us strength to prevail,
The vision is pure; I ain’t destined to fail,
I was given the time,
To carry the flame of the essence of song,
But if you worship the dime,
Get out of my way,
You must be putting me on.
Wind born warrior,
Coming to grab your mind,
From the grasp of Saturn’s kind,
You smell of greed,
Your smile is fake,
And your heart is cold,
What you need,
From others take,
You’d sell your mothers soul,
We soldier on,
Like the wheels they roll,
Can’t take your spirit or mine,
Let’s get it on,
Dig a hole,
You’d better kiss it goodbye.
Wind born warrior,
Coming to grab your mind,
From the grasp of Saturn’s kind.
If you try to stab my back,
Listen what I say,
You’ll be cast in the black,
It’s your reckoning day,
I’m not sure what you think you are,
Steal and lie to get your fix,
We all know who you really are,
Be gone with all your idle tricks
Punk Crusher
I’m not sure what you think you are,
Steal and lie to get your fix,
We all know who you really are,
Be gone with all your idle tricks
I’m the Punk crusher
Higher the risk,
Greater the reward,
Is what they say,
Chase your past into the black,
Get outta my way.
I’m not sure what you think you are,
Steal and lie to get your fix,
We all know who you really are,
Be gone with all those idle tricks
Punk Crusher
I’m not sure what you think you are,
Steal and lie to get your fix,
We all know who you really are,
Be gone with all your idle tricks
I’m your Punk crusher
Track Name: Razor Wire
You got me rollin’ in razorwire
You got me rollin’ in razorwire
It’s been real but I tell you it won’t last
Part of your deal is taking me to task
I ain’t no angel, I tell you if you ask
I can’t get wrapped around the axle of the past
You got me rollin’ in razorwire
You got me rollin’ in razorwire
It’s been great the best it’s ever been
You said its fate and i think that sucked me in
Ask me to be yer man I said that it's okay
How can I love you if you put me in a cage
I drove my sidecar through your daddy’s chainlink fence
I’d rather get high then pay the rent
Took a couple pot shots at the local C.I.
I can’t love you, ain’t no reason why
You got me rollin’ in razorwire
You got me rollin’ in razorwire
Now again the tables have been turned
Ain’t no wrath like a mad man that’s been burned
Ask me to be yer man, I said that that’s okay
How can I love you if you put me in a cage
I drove my sidecar through yer daddy’s chain link fence
I’d rather get high than pay the rent
Put a couple arrows in the local C.I.
Aimed for the liver but got him in the eye
You got me rollin’ in razorwire
