Guitarist Scott "Wino" Weinrich comments on the new album: "I can honestly say, I think this is the best sounding recording of my career, and I am excited to release it on Relapse. This song 'Razor Wire,' I have been carrying around the title concept and main riff in my pocket for a couple years. The full song was born after applying real life experiences, with a little wishful thinking! Fuck control." April 7th, 2017 will see the worldwide release of Sacred via Relapse Records on CD, LP, deluxe double LP, and digital formats. Physical preorders and bundles are available via and digital downloads can be preordered by Bandcamp. The deluxe 2xLP bundle includes an enamel logo pin, signed art print, and two bonus tracks. With renewed energy and purpose, The Obsessed sounds heavier and more relevant than ever before. On Sacred, the band doubles down on enormous, heaving riffs and pummeling low-end across twelve 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, well worth the two-plus decade wait. The band will perform once again as a three-piece featuring Wino, Reid Raley, and Brian Costantino. Sacred track listing: 01. Sodden Jackal 02. Punk Crusher 03. Sacred 04. Haywire 05. Perseverance Of Futility 06. It's Only Money 07. Cold Blood 08. Stranger Things 09. Razor Wire 10. My Daughter My Son 11. Be The Night 12. Interlude 13. On So Long (bonus) 14. Crossroader Blues (bonus)
