POSSESSED took San Francisco’s metal scene by storm, playing with fellow Bay Area thrashers and friends EXODUS, and other bands- many now long gone. In 1982-1983, they recorded a four song demo. One of the demo tracks, “Swing of the Axe” ended up on the Metal Massacre 6 compilation and later on “The Best of Metal Massacre.” Released in October 1985 on Combat Records, Seven Churches set a new standard for extreme music. Combining lightening fast riffs, Becerra’s raspy trademark growl and speedy bass playing, Pummeling drums and Randy Burns’ production, Seven Churches created a whole new genre of music- death metal. Seven Churches went on to be one of Combat Records’ best-selling albums. Not bad for a quartet of high school kids!
Beyond the Gates. Released on Halloween in 1986, this album was especially well-received in Europe where they toured at the end of the year. The album that changed the landscape of heavy metal, Beyond The Gates was the highest selling Combat album that year.
Professionally filmed video footage of POSSESSED’s performance at this year’s Bloodstock Open Air festival, which was held August 11-13 at Catton Hall, Walton-On-Trent, West Midlands, United Kingdom, can be seen below.
POSSESSED frontman Jeff Becerra told Antihero Magazine that the band’s upcoming studio album, which will be their first full-length effort since 1986’s “Beyond The Gates”, will contain “some really fucking good death metal. I’m really happy with a lot of the tracks,” he said. “I’m still writing in the process; I’m writing a lot of music, writing all of the lyrics, of course. I’m also collaborating with [new POSSESSED members] Daniel [Gonzalez, guitar] and Claudeous [Creamer, guitar]. We’re working together hard to create something that we really like. We’re hoping that translates well to other people and beyond. We’re hoping people like it. If they don’t, then fuck them.” Via Blabbermouth
