THE OBSESSED celebrate 40th anniversary and stream songs of iconic ‘Incarnate’ album!
Officially formed in 1980, legendary THE OBSESSED built the bridge between metalheads and punks. Influencing heavy music for generations, they are one of the most distinctive bands in the worldwide stoner, doom and heavy rock scene. Led by Scott “Wino” Weinrich, a heavy music lifer admired and acclaimed by the likes of Dave Grohl, Pepper Keenan, Henry Rollins or Phil Anselmo, THE OBSESSED has been releasing milestone albums for decades on labels like Hellhound, Columbia and Relapse, with Wino himself playing and performing with members of Sleep, Neurosis, Foo Fighters, Judas Priest, Black Sabbath and more.
Since their earliest days, THE OBSESSED accumulated dozens of demos, b-sides, covers and alternate recordings, many of which were issued in various limited releases and an early-2000s collection called ‘Incarnate’. Long out of print and gone digitally, Blues Funeral Recordings’ new ultimate edition of THE OBSESSED ‘Incarnate’ is completely remastered, features the addition of 4 new tracks, and is packaged with all new artwork, photos, and extensive new liner notes with Wino himself telling stories behind each long-lost gem. The Obsessed ‘Incarnate’ Ultimate Edition will be released digitally as well as in a beautiful gatefold double LP package with a unique vinyl color configuration exclusively for Record Store Day on October 24th 2020!
