The Obsessed "The Church Within" 1994

A few months ago I came across this CD at the local pulga market and bought it. It was sealed and cost me 25 cents. For 25 cents, I'd take the risk of buying a CD and see if I liked it. It was a good risk because it turned out to be a great CD with that heavy, mean sound I like so much. The Church Within reminds me a lot of Black Sabbath with the riffs and the vocals. I didn't really expect the vocals to sound like they did with this band as I thought for sure they'd be more grinding and screaming. But they're not and that's alright with me.

If you like the Church Within, I wager you'll also like the Obsessed's other releases, including their self-titled debut, Lunar Womb, and Incarnate. I bet you'd also dig Scott Weinrich's other bands--e.g., Spirit Caravan, Shrinebuilder, and, of course, Saint Vitus.
