Berserker IV Feature - The Obsessed

Berserker IV is almost here! This weekend the fest will bring some of the biggest and best names in metal together for two nights at The Crofoot. The event is happening this Friday and Saturday, April 14th and 15th with PREserker on Thursday, April 13th at Small's. This year the fest is bringing out some pretty legendary acts, among those is The Obsessed.

Led by Scott "Wino" Weinrich, The Obsessed has been making music since 1976. You might also know Wino from bands like Saint Vitus and Spirit Caravan. Their music is a cross between Doom Metal and Punk Rock. The band just released their latest album Sacred last week. This is the first new album that they've released in over 20 years. Check out the music video for the title track below, then read ahead to see Wino's responses to our Berserker questions.
