1.
The bones of chaos lie high on the hill watching the vamps and hitchers ride The unruly ones, governed by the dark, they feast on blood and sleep upside down Conjure the night Possess the soul Drink the wine and kill the swine Conjure and possess I think we just picked up Dracula This world belongs to the wicked and the dead A storm is coming and it has your name Soars through the trees in the forest of fear.
2.
Guillotine 03:06
..and from beyond the sun and beyond the moon, the bloodied few remain, as if they had a choice. Creeping on beneath the sun towards the blade Under the guillotine staring down the sun Under the guillotine it’s you they will find Rooms from beyond your dreams, hiding in your mind. Reading from the runes they will slowly find. Creeping on beneath the sun towards the blade
3.
Wet Cemetery 04:15
You hide amongst the leaves While daggers swing from the trees Digging through the remains I will save you from tonight Hiding from the worst to come will keep you when it might. Tattoo your will onto your arm Sometimes you feel like death isn’t far You’re in the centre of forever Just outside the cemetery gates You spread your wings of fear Whilst dragging your soul through the mud Digging through the remains I will save you from tonight Under your wings lie the surprise you were destined to fly.
4.
The Slime 03:05
The earth will shake and the sky will bleed Lacerated and bastardised they’re out on the porch stinking up the world with their sceptic lies, like a black fog across the bog, but I’ll land on my feet Swamp juice and dank greenery...ten foot sludge blasphemy. Full moon rising A monster man, a creature feature, hold your breath you’ll be dead by dawn He drags you to your murky depths the night is now complete Crazy man beast or hell hound...with a lust for bloodied bone. Full moon rising
5.
Mad man descends painting blood on the wall no one can stop him tonight Another victim taken aside, massacred with pride You can’t pin him down or follow his trail though they thought they had solved the crime Once he has ticked off the canonical five Maybe it’s your turn tonight Where are you on this night? He lurks in the shadows for you No mercy no motive just murder on his mind Where are you on this night? He walked the street before you Eyes burning in your back, he lurks in the shadows for you Murder so bloody with no words to rhyme he steps into his own history They must hang him high, they thought they had the one and they thought they had solved the crime Moonlight is bright and his mind is on murder and their noose can’t stop him tonight. Fall to your knees. Where are you on this night? He lurks in the shadows for you. On this night, in his veil he’ll hide the pieces of you. Where are you on this night? You walked the streets before him. Eyes burning in your back he lurks in the shadows for you. Watch him descend down on his knees It’s 1888, the bloodiest of mysteries History spelt it out so they’ll be no mistakes Grasp his cleaver and cut his face

Lava 05:24
They went searching for the beast to turn him to stone Daylight turned away and broke across his path Looming over the mountain and down out of sight The hours turn into days into nights Is this real? Only time till tell. Hordes of madness down below. The mighty beast awakens Hot thunder cracks above Crazy from the heat and the sun is hanging low Looming over the mountain and down out of sight The hours turn into days into nights.
7.
Notting Hell 01:24
8.
Hacksaw 03:20
No pulse found, never saw the signs No blood like before, just a heavy heart I cry tears of fog and sand running wild across this land, the son of the sun and the master of sin. Sun blocks out the end of every day as mystery lurks in the shadows there. Men stab at an unholy goat, the rising steam comes from its throat The mystery won’t stay dead long I’m no longer mine, my fate is sealed Sun burns my eyes as I match towards the void. And the pen will replace the sword. My fate is sealed.

about

Album number three from London's masters of macabre.

“Sick! Killer riffs and tone.”
Chris Reifert (Autopsy/Violation Wound/Death)

"Listening to Possessor is like being trampled by a herd of wildebeest. Marvellous stuff!" (Terrorizer Magazine)

“The Ripper is the exceptional, energetic kick to the kidneys I’ve been needing all winter”.
Grizzly Butts.

"Possessor come out the gates like Death riding a blinding comet."
New Noise Magazine.

“I can love Possessor as much as I love a perfectly grilled steak”.
Fuzzy Sun.

"The Ripper is one of the most pleasing releases to wrap up 2017 and open up 2018. Possessor's massive sound and brutal composition make it one of the more intimidating listens on the scene, and one you should get to know now”.
The Sludgelord

“It's the kind of music that gets all the creepy crawlers and night prowlers hyped on a Saturday night. It's heavy duty rock n roll for the living undead.”
Super Dank Metal Jams

“There isn’t a bad song on this album, each track is crafted out of pure heavy metal, tempered in the forges of thrash and decorated with the blood of all the weak that went before it.”
ProgMetalMadness

“As heavy as each track is, they are equally catchy and highly intoxicating.”
Cadaver Garden
