Possessed Signs Worldwide Deal with Nuclear Blast

Bay area thrash / death metal pioneers Possessed just signed a worldwide deal with Nuclear Blast Records. A new full-length studio album from the band, their first in over thirty years, will be released in 2018. A statement from Nuclear Blast and Possessed founder Jeff Becerra can be read below.

Nuclear Blast Statement:
“Nuclear Blast is proud to finally announce the worldwide signing and return of Possessed! Few bands have done more to push the boundaries of extreme metal than the legendary Possessed. Even fewer can create a unique style, which continues to set them apart from all others by being the very first in a genre they laid the foundation for. Possessed are by definition, the creators of Death Metal. Ever since they stormed onto the San Francisco metal scene in the early 1980’s, Possessed has been redefining and breaking the rules for metal. Nuclear Blast is very excited to be a part of that continued legacy.”

Jeff Becerra Statement:  
“POSSESSED are pleased and honored to announce our joining the Nuclear Blast family. Currently, we are hard at work writing new material for our upcoming first full-length release on Nuclear Blast. I want to give special thanks to everybody at Nuclear Blast, and to all of our supporters. This has been a long time coming and this is a very exciting time for us.”
