POSSESSED Discuss The Creation Of Death Metal In First Video Trailer For Upcoming Revelations Of Oblivion Album
March 25, 2019, a month ago
The first name in death metal, Possessed, recently revealed the title of their first album in over three decades, Revelations Of Oblivion. The album will be released on May 10th via Nuclear Blast Records.
Today, the band releases the first trailer for Revelations Of Oblivion. Watch below as they discuss the creation of death metal.
The band comments, "Right from the get go, we wanted to create the heaviest music that we possibly could - in the world - something that represented what we wanted to hear rather than what was being sold as metal back then."
To celebrate their return, the band released a visualizer for the first single, "No More Room In Hell", which can be seen below.
"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." ~ In Fire & Hell ~ Jeff Becerra & Possessed
Revelations Of Oblivion was recorded at NRG studios and Titan Studios with Jeff Becerra as executive producer and Daniel Gonzalez as co-producer for the album. Mixing and mastering was handled by Peter Tägtgren at Abyss Studios in Sweden. For the artwork, the band enlisted Polish artist Zbigniew Bielak to create a piece that brought back the notion of true fear that was once associated with the idea of evil.
“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.”
