Today, HM is proud to premiere the latest music video from self-proclaimed metal band Thirteen Minutes, “Obsessed.” The song comes from a dual-single release, “Obsessed and Fragile,” which you can download from their Bandcamp, released last November.

Vocalist Michael Rowley wrote in to HM to talk about the video:

“Wow. One year with Rottweiler Records. So many great things have transpired for this band as a direct result of our partnership, and we couldn’t be happier to call them home. I believe that ‘Obsessed’ – the song and the video – show the growth of this band on a sonic and visual level. This song has also been a great hit live, always spurring our audience to join into what makes a live show memorable: singing the chorus, “I’m Obsessed.” It makes me smile each and every time.”
