Synopsis

Product Description
There's a reason Dave Grohl invited Wino on board his all-star PROBOT project alongside metal icons Lemmy, King Diamond and Max Cavalera. It's the same reason Wino was recruited to play guitar beside Geezer Butler, Bill Ward and Rob Halford on a piledriving update of BLACK SABBATH's The Wizard. And when MASTODON took Wino's current band, THE HIDDEN HAND, on tour in 2005, you can be sure the rationale was no different. It's because, in the words of FUGAZI's Ian McKaye, 'Wino's a legend.' And the legend began with THE OBSESSED.

"my thoughts exactly. I have been waiting for years to have this album re-issued. I have been bugging Jadd at Meteor City records for the past 2 years once I heard that there were rumors flying around about Lunar Womb being put out again. this was actually supposed to come out a year and a half ago. more than once, I came really close to spending a butt-load of money on over-priced used copies of the original version of Lunar Womb (on Hellhound records) on EBay. but I held out, and tried to stay patient. finally, my waiting has paid off. in the entire "stoner-rock" genre (God, I hate that term), this is probably one of the most important albums. a true classic from one of the greatest singer/guitarists since Hendrix, the almighty Wino. also, probably the best Obsessed album. now, the only thing left is for a label to re-issue The Church Within. I already have my copy, but there are tons of other Obsessed fans out there that need it."
Excellence, no surprise.

"Five stars here folks. But what would you expect from ol 'Wino'. The guy puts his heart and soul into the music. Scott ignores all trends, and just plays the stuff the way he wants to hear it. It's good to see all these out of print albums coming out of the wood works. If you're into any of his stuff, don't hesitate to add this one to your collection."

"The Obsessed is another cult doom band (close to The Trouble Psalm 9 (w/bonus DVD)playing their mysic since 1977 (when they were known - mainly in Washington DC only - as Warhorse).
Actually, to my humble opinion, "Lunar Womb" (released in 1992) is the first mature and decent album of the band (since the "Purple Album" compilationThe Obsessed (Hellhound)).
I would say that this album already belongs to the history of doom, and is simply a must for every fan of the genre. Although I do belong to a much older generation (Sabbath at al.), I was very pleased with it"
