Striking while the iron is hottest, Belgium's Possession returns with new mini-album, "1585-1646," set for international release on June 6th, with Iron Bonehead Productions handling the vinyl pressing and Invictus Productions handling the CD pressing.
Here, the quartet goes from strength to strength, melding the best aspects of the "His Best Deceit" demo and the following "Anneliese" EP and then stirring the cauldron more potently 'n' poisonously.
Through these four tracks, Possession tells the story of a witch who lived in France between 1585 and 1646: on "Obscurity," an intro sets the crucial medieval atmosphere; with "Visitation," the future witch receives the visit of the Devil, who offers her a pact she accepts; on "Ceremony" comes the Sabbath; with "Guilty," the Inquisitors hunt the witch, catch her, and torture her to make her confess; and at last, on "Ablaze," the Inquisitors burn the witch.

Iron Bonehead Productions - in cooperation with Invictus Productions - set April 12th as the international release date for Possession's "Anneliese." The following press release was issued about the album:
"Following on from last year's critically acclaimed 'His Best Deceit' demo, Belgian black/death cult Possession returns with a highly anticipated 7" EP, cryptically titled Anneliese. Fans and critics worldwide thrilled to the feral, bloodlusting violence across His Best Deceit, but here on the two-song Anneliese 7", Possession boldly prove that their diabolic force extends into more haunting realms.
"No less hysteric, the reined-in thrust on these two tracks pounds 'n' plods into the most fucked-up dungeon mortal ears will hear. Less a statement of 'heavy metal' and more a ritual of unspeakable horror, Anneliese shows that POSSESSION are just beginning to stoke the hellfires of immortality..."

Recently released by Iron Bonehead Productions on limited-run cassette, Invictus Productions announces a wider CD version of Possession's debut demo, "His Best Deceit," set for international release on November 15th. The following press release was issued about the demo:
"Formed in late 2012 with the aim of keeping the flame of the ancient black arts burning, Possession proceeded to record their first demo in August 2013 at Blackout Multimedia Studio in Brussels with Phorgath of Enthroned. What results is an absolutely overwhelming display of ancient blackthrashing mania - complete and total ultraviolence and demonic force, well versed in the unbending ways of the Old Gods but shot through with a hideousness and teeth-gnashing gnarliness that simply cannot be denied. Indeed, to succumb to this assault is His Best Deceit..."
