Doom metal doesn’t get much truer or more essential than the debut from the legendary Maryland trio. Though recorded in 1985, the album wasn’t released until 1990, after frontman Wino had left Saint Vitus and decided to revive his former band. Whereas Vitus were defined by Dave Chandler’s ultra-minimal, icy riffing, The Obsessed’s mid-paced groove has a more bluesy, soulful and subtly psychedelic bent. Less well known than some of their influences and successors, but necessary for fans of Black Sabbath, Pentagram, Cathedral et al.

The double CD includes an ‘84 demo and ‘85 live set, which are also included as a download with the LP version.
