Heavy metal outfit The Obsessed have released their track “Sodden Jackyl” through the Adult Swim Singles program. This happens to be the Maryland rockers’ first new material in over two decades. Stream it above on SoundCloud.
Originally released by The Obsessed in 1983 under the title “Sodden Jackal,” this new iteration has the band displaying their proficiency with doom metal elements. The guitar chords are deliberately sludgy and play in unison with the bass to offer a thick, distorted, and immense sound.
This is the group’s third reunion since their inception in 1976, and first since 2012. It will also be their first ever four-person lineup. The band has begun working on their next album, titled Sacred, which is due out in Spring of 2017 according to a press release.
