Californian death metal legends Possessed will team up with long-running Dutch death metallers Pestilence for a North American tour in the spring. The "Revelations Of The Ancients" tour will take place in March and April 2020 and will feature The Black Moriah as the opening act. Dates will be announced soon.
Possessed's first full-length album in over three decades, "Revelatons Of Oblivion", was released this past May via Nuclear Blast Records. The disc was recorded at NRG studios and Titan Studios with Possessed frontman Jeff Becerra 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, Dimmu Borgir, Deicide, Ghost, Gorguts) to create a piece that brought back the notion of true fear that was once associated with the idea of evil.
Said Jeff: "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."
