THE OBSESSED Releases “Sacred” Making Of… Video Clip

Earlier this month, doom rock legends THE OBSESSED unveiled their long-awaited Sacred full-length alongside a trippy new Jimmy Hubbard-produced visual accompaniment to the record’s title track. Today, the band is pleased to unleash a five-and-a-half-minute “making of” clip giving viewers an up-close-and-personal, behind-the-scenes look at the video’s creation from concepts to costumes.





Elaborates guitarist/vocalist Scott “Wino” Weinrich, “This Majikal story of love, lust, and inter-dimensional travel was realized in both dream and reality by the collaboration and wizardry of Jimmy Hubbard, THE OBSESSED, and Mr. Danger. The imagery of the story was executed by the savage energy of Sam and the stunning, exotic beauty and talent of Rachel Watson. It’s all about passion, power, and dreams that do not die.”

THE OBSESSED is currently embarked on a US headlining tour which will wind its way through more than three-dozen venues, ending on May 20th in Baltimore, Maryland. Karma To Burn is serving as direct support throughout the tour while Fatso Jetson and Lo-Pan will provide additional support on select dates. Additionally, THE OBSESSED will join Weedeater and labelmates Primitive Man on five West Coast shows during the run from April 27th through May 1st. See all confirmed dates below.

With renewed energy and purpose, THE OBSESSED sounds heavier and more relevant than ever before. On Sacred, the band doubles down on enormous, heaving riffs and pummeling low-end across twelve tracks of eternal doom. Rounded out Weinrich’s lyrical honesty and iconic throaty vocals, Sacred is an album that further pushes THE OBSESSED into the annals of heavy metal history, and well-worth the two-plus decade wait. The band will perform once again as a three-piece featuring Wino, Reid Raley, and Brian Costantino.
