Artwork for the release was handled by Thomas Ewerhard (Avantasia, Edguy, Masterplan).
The band comments: "The new Black Abyss album 'Possessed' deals with different types of obsession. Basically everyone has some sort of obsession that drives his actions and conduct. The cover reflects precisely these variants and shows where it can lead to... the world in ruins, people are torn up inside and out, and in the background the evil that mostly all secretly directs... And besides it also looks damn cool!“

01. As Long As I‘m Bleeding
02. Conquering Of Fate
03. The Final Call
04. Possessed By Hate
05. Human Machine
07. Rippers Punch
