Colin M. This is a hell of an album way too many years in the making. Wino and company have made sure that all that is heavy and good is alive and well. Saw them play some choice cuts live in Cleveland April 14 as well, and it is even better live. Favorite track: Cold Blood.

Wet fur bears the smell of death Sodden cur On your heels their fetid breath Jackal king’s guardian slaves The child is delivered unto the earth From the womb of a beast With a million parents of the dark To guide and serve From the blackness they emerged Fed on disease decay For their master they must kill To guard the gate of Hell’s conception Running you scream in naked fear Untold terror A scene of evil unbelieved Behold the fire Fight relentlessly Can’t give up, we must believe Bodies lie in smoldering piles Bring cold lips earthly smiles A soul claimed was not won So revealed the prophecy Has the likeness of a man It bears the mark of numbers Now with faith and sacred knives The time is right The beast is destroyed and the light commands Triumphant trial

Punk Crusher 03:43
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

Sacred 05:11 video
Love you child like there’s no tomorrow Lust so deep this wolf must follow In the full moon light I see A pagan prayer with crystal wings Grab you mama by your fragile wings I’ll put you in my pocket full of dangerous things To my castle on the mountain’s peak Clouds they swirl, winds they shriek Side by side we’re gonna ride the wind Because in death this life begins Little Fox, the time is now We’re gonna live forever anyhow Through dimension’s mists we fly Chrome fang diamond eye In the full moon’s light we prowl Our devotions love we howl Darkness dawns the time is now We’re gonna live forever

Haywire 02:24
From San Diego to the Lone Star state From Hollyweird to the Pearly Gates A junk yard screaming Lost soul’s single voice Took the gamble took the chances Made the choice Sweating ether My spinning mind is sweating cold Sweet panhead magic carpet flying bold The road beneath us Is the rainbow’s pot of gold Ticket to freedom Any price but my soul Life is living true living is free Ain’t got no dollar sign Tattooed on me Solo shouting in my own heaven’s choir Ridin’ through on a world gone haywire Achieving victory, losing hair losing teeth Food for thought When you’re lying around on Hell’s Beach Broken bones, busted knuckles Twisted face Running forever I ain’t losin’ my own race Life is living true living is free Ain’t got no dollar sign Tattooed on me Solo shouting in my own heaven’s choir Ridin’ through on a world gone haywire

It’s right before our eyes All the symbols and warning signs Golden bull does arise Ushers in the grand design From the untamed vision to a sacred place In an unnamed prison behind a soulless face From the plains of nowhere from the Promised Land now torn Blood stains and despair been enslaved since you were born The serpent’s smooth seduction Has his brain hypnotized Witness now chaos and destruction Poisoned bodies and fractured minds Their lust for blood and treasure On the people’s back the price is borne Feeds on fear killing just for pleasure Chained to the wheel, humanity is gone. Soulless Strawman your dark lord he sees You’d best back off, don’t tread on me! From the untamed vision to a sacred place In an unnamed prison behind a soulless face From the plains of nowhere to the Promised Land now torn Blood stains and despair enslaved since you were born

Cold Blood 04:47
May this be the end In my tracks stop dead Once beating heart is dry and bled Ain’t no mirage, See it clear and real Souls camouflage, Makes it harder to steal You feel unloved, the current’s dark and swift The moon above to emotions drift Ain’t no tricks That your mind can play On so long, it doesn’t matter anyway I was born with my heart on my sleeve And I’m sworn to what I believe It's no surprise I can’t get through On so long, I ain’t comin’ back to you (Solo) I was born with my heart on my sleeve And I’m sworn to what I believe It's no surprise I can’t get through On so long, I ain’t comin’ back to you May this be again Rising from the black My only friend Rides shotgun on my back The day will come And time will tell Was this livin’ or just a magical spell? I was born with my heart on my sleeve And I’m sworn to what I believe My heart ain’t black Never will it be Your golden idol won’t set you free

Stranger things have come and gone Daily struggle erodes memory Danger brings itself along Such an endearing entity But your trip don’t seem heartfelt When all your friends are your enemies And your strikes aren’t overlooked Because I’m your felony How strange it is to see With all of our history To other minds it seems so weird Dealing with dichotomy It’s only fair you get called out I’ve got plenty of my own misery And your trip I figured out It boils down to jealousy Stranger things Stranger things have come and gone Stranger things Stranger things have come and gone Stranger keeps the damage done Perpetuates the villainy And Danger spreads its wings above the shadows cloak mediocrity And I know you think you’re cool with your smug imagery And you know I ain’t no fool because I’m your felony Stranger things, Stranger things have come and gone Dangerous things, Danger brings the coming dawn Stranger things, Stranger things have come and gone Stranger things, The strange thing is we don’t belong Stranger things, Stranger things have come and gone Dangerous things, Danger brings the coming dawn Stranger things, Stranger things have come and gone Stranger things, The strange thing is we don’t belong.

Razor Wire 03:32
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

My children dear, won’t you lend me your ear I got a song of love to sing you Live your own life, be honest and kind Always speak your mind My first born son, we saw new horizons And the strength and love you brought here Has made me wiser Adventurous child, may your heart guide your journey And I’m so proud to see your glory Angel speaks with her mind Paint me a dream in purple light This emerald locket, look inside Sun rays to warm my life Angel speaks with her eyes Take me on a magic ride In your castle we will hide And on the clouds we will ride

Be the Night 02:11
Yeah we’re gonna be the night again, Yeah we’re gonna be the night again, We’re gonna feel the night, We won’t fall without a fight, We’re gonna be the devils friend. Will we ever see the light again? Will we ever see the light again? Hold you in the proud sunlight, I know it’s been a long dark life, The sun will rise for you again. I’m gonna kill that man someday, I’m gonna kill that man someday, When I put him down, The world lost one more clown, And let the chips fall where they may, And let the chips fall where they may, And let the chips fall where they may!

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.
