The Obsessed sign with Relapse Records, premiere demo

Official press release: Relapse Records is extremely proud to announce the signing of legendary hard rock/doom metal band The Obsessed. Formed in 1976 by Scott "Wino" Weinrich (Saint Vitus, Spirit Caravan, Shrinebuilder, Probot etc.), the band recently reformed and are on the road now. The band will enter the studio this summer to record the follow up to 1994's seminal classic, The Church Within. 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!" A demo version of the song "Be The Night" from the forthcoming album, tentatively titled Sacred, can be heard here:
