The Obsessed

Upon leaving Saint Vitus -- whose unabashed worship of Black Sabbath helped lay the groundwork for the sludge, stoner, and doom metal mini-movements of the '90s -- vocalist/guitarist Scott "Wino" Weinrich re-formed the Obsessed, a band he'd founded in Washington, D.C., in theearly'80s prior to joining Saint Vitus.

Initially including a rhythm section of bassist Mark Laue and drummer Ed Gulli, the Obsessed hadrecorded a liveEP back in 1984, but didn't make their full-length debut until 1990's The Obsessed, recorded for the small Hellhound label.Personnel shiftsensued (Melvins drummer Dale Crover passed through the ranks at one time or another): bassist Scott Reeder and drummerGreg Rogers joinedfor the 1991 follow-up Lunar Womb. Reeder subsequently left the band to join Kyuss, and was replaced by Guy Pinhas, justas the Obsessed waslanding a major-label deal with Columbia. Although many described it as the group's most focused album, 1994's TheChurch Within also provedto be their last. Following the breakup, Pinhas and Rogers formed Goatsnake, while Weinrich started up a new outfitfirst called Shine, thenquickly renamed Spirit Caravan. In 1999, Southern issued a collection of outtakes and rarities titled Incarnate, and thefollowing yearrepackaged The Obsessed together with the original lineup's 1984 EP. « hide
