Leonardo Martins 15 seconds and will be captured by the the band sound. It's all straight full throttle ahead music, with a magical tapestry full of psycho drive trash-punk-doom-stoner-horror-macumba riffs. Apocalyptic bass player, insane drummer, demented vocals... stoked! The discography reveals a great band. "Dead By Down" is the proof. Cool Favorite track: Scorpion Swamp.

Regicide It's doom, it's thrash, it's occult. What it isn't is on vinyl. Please take care of that. In the meantime, I will proudly wear my purple cat's eye t-shirt when it arrives. Favorite track: Slaughter High.

about

Possessor return to black out the Summer sun with their latest slab of old school metal malevolence.
DEAD BY DAWN.

"Possessor are fuzzed out, beautifully fucked, and catchier than heat stroke in hell (where los grillos presumes the band crashed a burned out garage to record these nine brain-melters)".
(Los Grillos Collective)

"Possessor get bigger, better, and more creatively barbarous with every release and indeed more irresistible".
(The Ringmaster review)

"Adding this album to your collection is mandatory... In an industry of often over produced, over funded, copycat music, it stands like a towering behemoth. It's fast, fun, heavy, fuzzy, exciting music."
(Prog Metal Madness)

"These guys do not fuck around with meandering intros or acoustic beginnings – plug in, turn up, fuzz boxes set to kill, hey ho, let’s fucking go. This is unstoppable stuff on display".
(The Doom charts)

"The London three-piece have turned out a fine theatrical number in Dead By Dawn. Its blend of 70's doom, modern sludge and Rob Zombie bounce is a fine way to begin a weekend with the damned".
(This is decay)

"There isn't a song on this record that you would want to skip as each and every one is a solid slab of burning metal".
(Cadaver Garden)

Recorded at Hill House by Grover Kill.
Drums recorded at Nightmare Castle by Dr. Anton Kramer and Grover Kill, Summer 2016.
Mastered by Wayne Adams.

"It's a sonic smog of seventies and current classic metal".
(Ringmaster review)

"Possessor kick expectations down a ravine. Oozing sweat, sex and handshakes with Satan".
(Heavy Planet album of 2014)

Track Name: Afterburner
Scattered remains.
I rue the day they took control and swiped your mind away.
The woods, the trees, forsaken now.
Blessed are the ones who sleep, and how.

Slasher. Destroyer.

Black night,
disappears inside the after burn.

Slasher. Destroyer.

(Solo: Dance of the possessed)

(Solo: Siege of blood)

Slasher. Destroyer.
Track Name: Scorpion Swamp
When speaking to the dead you must not forget,
not all spirits are dead.
The lights will dim for them, the ecto doth bring forth,
all the ones that you riled.

Now things are getting worse, bring out the shining knife,
you take the easy way out.
The smoke clouds choke the sun, too late to change their minds,
before it swallows you whole.

(Solo: Holy terror )

The darkness of the water, the sludge of black revolt,
they're here to break in the dawn.
Because this infernal fire will come twice around,
trudges dead and wet into the night...

(Solo: Carrion screaming)
Track Name: Beneath The Chapel
The wind won't change for you, you are what is wrong,
you drive with skulls as wheels.
The sky is on fire tonight.
Their minds won't change for you, they are what is wrong,
Just open your eyes.

Beneath the chapel lies hell.

Embrace the horrors of the unknown,
and take your mask and ride.
The sky is on fire tonight.
If you just open your mind.

Beneath the chapel lies hell.

(Solo: Cursed remains)
Track Name: Without Warning
You know your destiny man,
the seas of blood draw near
behold their phantom fear.
Take my hand and read the oath.
It's canvernous and merciless.

I greet you with a warm hand,
in a state of fear, the last house to be cleared.
Take my hand and read the oath
It's cavenous and merciless.
Take my hand...

Without warning.
Track Name: Slaughter High
Open the door to him, he'll shatter all your bones
They say he lives at night in rivers close to home.
Rises from the dust and puts evil thoughts inside your mind,
but where will he take you when it's your turn to die.

They go to Slaughter high.

He built a fortress out of sawdust and bones.
Then knocked it down to prove his spirit would live on.
The place that leads to where the spirits and the souls run free,
there is no good, no evil, only what you see.

They go to Slaughter high.
And he is coming.

(Solo: Night of the ghouls)

They go to Slaughter high.
And he is coming.
Track Name: Terror Tripping
Look at the dead eyes of London,
they're terror tripping everywhere.
And when at night they surround you.
You will be laughing in your lair.

On this death road,
I am the master of macabre, I am the skull beneath your skin,
on this death road.

A ghastly spell has taken you hold,
the door that leads you everywhere.
And as you look down below you,
terror has got you by the hair.

On this death road,
I am the master of macabre, I am the skull beneath your skin,
on this death road.

(Solo: The dawn of mayhem)

Don't look down.

(Solo: The spell of insanity)

On this death road,
I am the master of macabre, I am the skull beneath your skin,
on this death road.
Track Name: The Curse Of The Hearse
You've got napalm breath.
You've got the night on your side.
You will never forget, it'll eat your mind
You've got napalm breath.
You've got the night on your side,
and vampires blood in mind.

This is the curse of the hearse.

With your eyes rolled back,
they see the whites of your eyes,
and the time is now, lycanthropy night.
You've got napalm breath.
You've got the night on your side.
and vampires blood in mind.


This is the curse of the hearse.

On a cliff they hang,
and the bats they fly.
In the shadow of the moon,
roll out the hearse tonight.
