Originally released in 1990 and out-of-print for almost two decades, THE OBSESSED's now-legendary self-titled debut was completely remastered by Relapse Records in 2017. The collection boasts previously unreleased bonus tracks, including the highly-sought after four-track Concrete Cancer demo (1984), expanded artwork, never-before-seen photos, and extended liner notes from frontman Scott "Wino" Weinrich making for a true piece of doom rock history.
The deluxe 2xCD version of the record includes a bonus disc containing the Concrete Cancer demo as well as a full live set from 1985 in Washington, D.C.. The Concrete Cancer demo is also available separately as a limited-edition LP.

The Obsessed is available on 2xCD, LP, 2xLP, and digital formats. Physical bundles and digital orders are available via Relapse Records HERE and streaming services at THIS LOCATION.
"Scott 'Wino' Weinrich bringing THE OBSESSED back is assurance that what was sparked inside of him with another in-and-out round with Saint Vitus was no fluke.... This doom troubadour is made of iron and stone, and there's no quit inside of him." - Blabbermouth
"...the definitive take on an album that clearly laid a lot of the ground work for the current doom and stoner rock bands." - Hellbound
"...some of the greatest doom songs ever recorded have come from Wino, and this album more specifically. The album has stood the test of time, and the re-issue was overdue and needed for the new generation of doom metal fans waiting for it." - My Global Mind
"THE OBSESSED will forever remain exalted because of their self-titled LP, a rare lightning rod of an album that helped straighten out doom when it needed it most." - Dead Rhetoric
