The Obsessed is the first album by The Obsessed, released in 1990 by Hellhound Records. All the songs were recorded in 1985 for an intended album for Metal Blade Records, which had never been released. The release of this album prompted singer Scott "Wino" Weinrich to leave Saint Vitus and reform The Obsessed with a new rhythm section. This album was re-released by Tolotta Records in 2000 with 10 live bonus tracks recorded at Glenmont Rec. Center in Wheaton, Maryland on February 28, 1984.
