OBSESSION Schedules CD-Release Party In Connecticut

Reunited classic early '80s metal band OBSESSION has scheduled a CD-release party for their new album, "Carnival of Lies", on October 13 at Daniel's Street in Milford, Connecticut.

OBSESSION released its long-awaited follow-up to 1987's "Methods of Madness" this past summer via Metal Mayhem in the U.S. and Avalon in Japan. The Japanese version includes a bonus track — the 2006 version of "Panic in the Streets" — while the European edition comes with an extra song, "Judas". Check out the songs "Carnival of Lies", "I Don't Belong" and "Marshall Law" (2006 version) at this location. The album's title track features Swedish guitar sensation Robert Marcello (DANGER DANGER, IRONHORSE) and Boston based neo-classical shred-god Joe Stump (REIGN OF TERROR).

Original members Michael Vescera (vocals; ex-LOUDNESS, YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, MVP) and Jay Mezias (drums; HANDS OF STONE, WORLDPAIN) have recruited Marcello Stump and bassist Chris McCarvill (JEFF SCOTT SOTO BAND, X-FACTOR-X), among others, to help them deliver the new OBSESSION original material," according to a press release. "With these new guest players, Michael and Jay have formed a lethal combination guaranteed to please the most die-hard, obsessed heavy metal guitar worshippers."

OBSESSION gained success in the late '80s with the release of a four-song EP, 1984's "Marshall Law" (Metal Blade Records), two LPs (1986's "Scarred For Life" and 1987's "Methods Of Madness", both for Enigma/Capitol Records), and an MTV "Headbanger's Ball"-aired video for "For the Love of Money", from "Methods of Madness". OBSESSION's original lineup featured Michael and Jay along with Bruce Vitale (guitar/songwriter who's attending to previous business commitments and may someday appear with OBSESSION again), Art Maco (guitar, retired) and Matt Karagus (bass, retired).
