More Info:

For the first time, this lost classic of 90s metal is being reissued by Real Gone Music on CD with two bonus tracks (the single Mental Kingdom and the unreleased track Melancholy Grey ), added photos, the original album art with lyrics and a new note from Wino himself. Everyone from Henry Rollins to Dave Grohl to Ian MacKaye has sung Wino's praises...time to join the chorus.

Reviews:

Biker metal, doom metal, stoner metal...whatever metal subgenre you want to fit him into, Scott Wino Weinrich has been at the forefront of it for over thirty years. The unmistakable rasp of his lead vocals and thick, fuzzy Gibson guitar tone have spearheaded bands ranging from Saint Vitus to Spirit Caravan to Probot, but for many his crowning achievement (and most accessible one) was The Church Within, the last album he made with his first band, The Obsessed, for Columbia in 1994. His lone major label release, The Church Within features the dark vision and crushing, slow-motion riffs beloved by fans of Black Sabbath, but the driving intensity and atonal guitar solos recall Motorhead and Black Flag, respectively; in short, this album transcends genre classifications even as it defines them. Now, for the first time, this lost classic of 90s metal is being reissued by Real Gone Music on CD with two bonus tracks (the single Mental Kingdom and the unreleased track Melancholy Grey ), added photos, the original album art with lyrics and a new note from Wino himself. Everyone from Henry Rollins to Dave Grohl to Ian MacKaye has sung Wino's praises...time to join the chorus.
