Mentally Obsessed


Doom rock legends THE OBSESSED have shared the bonus track “Mental Kingdom” off the Self-Titled, reissue full-length album. “Mental Kingdom” was originally recorded in 1984 for the highly-sought after Concrete Cancer Dem

Frontman Scott “Wino” Weinrich commented:

“‘Mental Kingdom’ is a reflection on my core philosophy which is to make every and all attempts to reject control, by slanted media, man-made religious denominations, and calculated deception of the layman by government secrets and puppets. Follow your heart and open your eyes. It’s all square in our faces but ultimately the force we need lies inside each of us.”

Additionally, listen to the remastered, studio version of “The Way She Fly” now via YouTube AT THIS LOCATION.

THE OBSESSED are currently on the Sacred headline US Fall Tour featuring direct support by Cobalt on all remaining dates. The band will also tour the US this Winter with Clutch and Devin Townsend Project. A full list of confirmed tour dates is available below.

THE OBSESSED’s Self-Titled reissue is due out November 17th on 2xCD/LP/2xLP/Digital via Relapse Records. Physical bundles and digital pre-orders are available via Relapse Records HERE and streaming services AT THIS LOCATION.

Originally released in 1990 and out of print for almost two decades, the now legendary debut album from Doom godfathers THE OBSESSED will once again see the light of day in multiple deluxe formats.
