Legendary Doom Pioneers The OBSESSED To Reunite For Roadburn 2012

Legendary Doom Pioneers THE OBSESSED To Reunite For Roadburn 2012

Roadburn is elated to announce that legendary doom pioneers THE OBSESSED will reunite to play the Roadburn Festival on Saturday, 14 April 2012. The band will be featuring the lineup from “The Church Within”; SCOTT “WINO” WEINRICH on guitar/vocals, GREG ROGERS (Goatsnake, Sonic Medusa) on drums and GUY PINHAS (Acid King, Goatsnake and Beaver) on bass.

There is no debating the impact that WINO has had (and continues to have) on the stoner scene, and THE OBSESSED is the band with which he developed his signature doom songwriting and guitar sound. Formed in Maryland in 1976 as Warhorse, they soon changed their name to THE OBSESSED. The original four man lineup was pared down to a power trio and they spent several years playing shows and honing their sound, culminating in the release of the “Sodden Jackal” 7″ in1983.

WINO Says SAINT VITUS Will Enter Studio This Summer

via Blabbermouth
Earlier this week, Justin M. Norton of Hellbound.ca conducted an interview with SAINT VITUS frontman Scott “Wino” Weinrich. Wino discussed his upcoming acoustic album “Adrift”; his relationship with SHRINEBUILDER bandmate Scott Kelly and SAINT VITUS‘ recording plans. A couple of excerpts from the chat follow below.

Hellbound.ca: Have you always wanted to work on a primarily acoustic album?

Wino: I didn’t really think about it until a little while ago. I’d been over to Germany and I was playing guitar one day and someone asked me if I had ever considered an acoustic record. It was a few years ago but I wasn’t feeling it and I just wasn’t interested. There were a strange set of circumstances that led me to playing acoustic live for the first time. It was pretty bad. I decided if I was going to do it I was going to do it right so I sat down and just wrote a few acoustic songs. After that I felt a little more confident. Then I did “Punctuated Equilibrium” and our bass player died unexpectedly. That’s when I started to warm up for gigs with the acoustic and it felt good.

SCOTT ‘WINO’ WEINRICH: New Solo Track Available For Free Download

via Blabbermouth

We don’t need to rave about the well-known legacy of the man who is Scott Weinrich, better known as Wino. With dozens of albums released throughout his time spent in THE OBSESSED, SAINT VITUS, SHINE, SPIRIT CARAVAN, THE HIDDEN HAND, SHRINEBUILDER, Dave Grohl‘s PROBOT project and much more since the late ’70s, his mammoth and varied resume spans nearly three full decades, essentially set him up as a purveyor and forerunner of the entire genre we now call doom rock. A true legend; this is Wino. But, with the release of the humble but legendary musician’s new solo album, “Adrift”, a side of the man that most haven’t heard is being uncovered for the first time.

Answering the call from his friends and supporters to record an acoustic solo album following the sudden and tragic passing of friend and bandmate Jon Blank, who appeared on Wino‘s first “solo release,” “Punctuated Equilibrium”, in 2009, he set to work on his most personal and powerful recording to date. “Adrift” is a revealing alternative view of this underground legend’s personality and history. Stripped down to the bare minimum — just his voice and his guitar — the songs on “Adrift” follow classic American songwriting ideals offering a compelling mixture of emotion and storytelling.

KYLESA, RED FANG, HOWL and ATLAS MOTH have been confirmed as the support acts for the inaugural Metalliance Tour — featuring HELMET, SAINT VITUS and CROWBAR. The trek will cover the U.S. from March 17 through April 5.

Legendary alternative metal band HELMET will perform their 1992 platinum-selling release of “Meantime” in its entirety. The Interscope Records release gave the band mainstream attention with songs like “Unsung” and “In The Meantime”. With the band’s renewed success after getting back together in 2004, this tour will be one of the most anticipated of 2011.

One of the most highly influential doom metal bands in America, SAINT VITUS are regarded as one of the first bands of the genre starting out as early as the 1970s. The band featuring Scott “Wino” Weinrich, bassist Mark Adams, guitarist Dave Chandler and new drummer Henry Vasquez have influenced so many bands in doom and metal . (more…)
