Sodden Jackal (Also known simply as The Obsessed) was the debut release of Maryland doom metal band The Obsessed, released in 1983 on Invictus Records.
In the early 1980s, along with a multitude of demos, The Obsessed would record a trio of songs for release as a self-released 7". This would be the only release the band would put out in their initial run along with an appearance on Metal Massacre VI on Metal Blade Records with the song "Concrete Cancer" (Released in 1985.).
All three songs would appear on the Incarnate compilation. In 2012, to celebrate the reunion of the band, this 7" would be re-issued by TKO Records.
The Obsessed would re-record "Sodden Jackal" for the band's fourth album Sacred, released in 2017.
