Just found this out today. While lead single doesn't blow me away, the band that some consider the first gestators of death metal return to unleash their newest album REVELATIONS OF OBLIVION.



Evil Smile 

Possessed announce new album ‘Revelations Of Oblivion’ 

POSSESSED have announced a new album!

Titled Revelations of Oblivion, the upcoming album is the first new music from the legendary death metallers for three decades and is scheduled to be released in May this year!

The upcoming album was recorded at NRG Studios and Titan Studios with JeffBecerra as executive producer and Daniel Gonzalez as co-producer for the album. Mixing and mastering was handled by Peter Tägtgren (HYPOCRISY, PAIN, BLOODBATH) at Abyss Studios in Sweden. For the artwork, the band enlisted Polish artist Zbigniew Bielak (PARADISE LOST, ABSU, DEICIDE, GHOST, GORGUTS).

Speaking about the upcoming album, vocalist Jeff Becerra says, “Working with Peter was a fantastic experience. We put a great deal of thought into who we wanted to produce our new album. Since we hadn’t made an all-new material release in well over 30 years, it was essential that we found the right person. Peter‘s name kept coming up over and over, and after speaking with my bandmates they all really liked Peter as he is more organic, and somebody we felt would fit in well with our process. This album from start to release has been a fantastic experience. All of us in POSSESSED hope you enjoy this newest release and we look forward to touring and creating much more new music in the future. We appreciate all of your support and dedication. Hope to see you during our upcoming tours & shows soon. Thank you to each and every one of you for your inspiration and dedication to POSSESSED.”

Alongside the announcement of the new album, the band have released the first taster from the upcoming album; titled No More Room In Hell.

Track List: 

1. Chant Of Oblivion
2. No More Room In Hell
3. Dominion
4. Damned
5. Demon
6. Abandoned
7. Shadowcult
8. Omen
9. Ritual
10. The Word
11. Graven
12. Temple Of Samael


Revelations of Oblivion is set for release on May 10th via Nuclear Blast Records.

I just pre-ordered my copy. I admit I wasn't expecting much with Jeff Becerra being the only link to the old days, but that new song sounds fantastic. Jeff sounds great as does the band. The guitar solo was excellent and Jeff's voice sounds good.

I would be tempted to buy the album only on the status of Possessed as a cult band AND the artwork (wow, it must be something to admire as a LP cover!)

I'll surely check it out. I loved Seven Churches back when it first came out. It'll be cool to hear how they sound now.
A story told that can't be real somehow must reflect the truth we feel.

Wow. Must be worth some $$$$, unless the cat peed on it or something LOL

There's a second song on Spotify this morning. It's better still I reckon. Like the new vocals a lot.
