^^   WINO   Solo

THE OBSESSED   was formed in the late 1970s in Potomac, Maryland by legendary guitarist Scott “Wino” Weinrich (Saint Vitus, Spirit Caravan). The band spawned in the realm of musicians/artists such as Black Sabbath, Frank Zappa, The Dictators, and The Stooges. The earliest lineup consisted of Wino, bassist Mark Laue, guitarist John Reese, and drummer Dave Flood. In 1983, Wino took over vocal duties and the band became a three-piece to record the   Sodden Jackal   EP.The band broke up in the late ‘80s after Wino moved to California to join Saint Vitus. At that time, a German label, Hellhound Records, and the booking agency that had signed Saint Vitus, released   The Obsessed , originally recorded in 1985, prompting Wino to reform   THE OBSESSED . After multiple lineup changes, the band signed to Columbia Records in 1994 to release their third and final album,   The Church Within . Despite highly acclaimed reviews,   THE OBSESSED   would break up following the release, seeing Wino forming Spirit Caravan (then Shine) and other projects.

In 2011,   THE OBSESSED   returned to the stage at Roadburn Festival with   The Church Within ’s legendary lineup (featuring Wino, Greg Rogers, and Guy Pinhas). The band played a few more reunion shows over the next couple years before Wino announced the full-time return of   THE OBSESSED   in March 2016 with an updated lineup.   Sacred,   the band’s first studio album in over two decades, was released the following year.   THE OBSESSED   currently features Wino, drummer Brian Costantino, and bassist Brian White.

THE SKULL   is a musical collaboration founded by three former members of American doom metal legends Trouble — vocalist Eric Wagner, bassist Ron Holzner, and drummer Jeff “Oly” Olson — and guitarist Lothar Keller (Sacred Dawn). Formed in 2011 to “continue the sounds and spirit of Trouble – past, present, future,”   THE SKULL   released their critically lauded debut,   For Those Which Are Asleep , in 2014 via Tee Pee Records. Four years later saw   The Endless Road Turns Black , also through Tee Pee Records. Louder Sound praised a, “veritable doom supergroup, expertly blending the soulful American blue-collar doom rock approach with the more mystical, macabre European tradition,” while Metal Injection gushed, “The crushing forward motion and roaring bottom end that has come to define this band is thrilling and the way that   THE SKULL  swagger forth speaks to a band who have a deep understanding of heavy metal as a greater entity.”   THE SKULL   currently features Wagner, Holzner, Keller, guitarist Matt Goldsborough (Pentagram), and Henry Vasquez (Saint Vitus).
