Possessed European Tour Is Not Confirmed

Long-running California-based extreme metallers SADISTIC INTENT have commented on the reports that they will be touring Europe in July/August with a revamped version of San Francisco Bay Area metal legends POSSESSED - consisting of original frontman Jeff Becerra backed by members of SADISTIC INTENT. The following statement from SADISTIC INTENT was sent to blabbermouth.net:

"Apparently some one decided to make a flyer of the possible tour with POSSESSED (featuring original frontman Jeff Becerra backed by SADISTIC INTENT), SADISTIC INTENT, MORTEM, and PENTACLE. Although the tour is currently in a preliminary phase, we have not confirmed. After the word got out, we have received much e-mail from people in different countries with very positive feedback and we are grateful. However, we are not responsible for the premature tour announcement and if things don't go as planned, it is possible we will not be able to do this tour. As soon as we find out more information, we will make an official announcement. Nevertheless, thanks to all of you who have shown your support, it certainly is appreciated."

A limited-edition POSSESSED seven-inch single on multi-colored vinyl was released last year on Boneless Records in association with B.A.D.M./N.Y.D.M. Entitled "Ashes from Hell", the first 100 copies of the single came with a collector's pick.

Formed in the early '80s, POSSESSED released "Seven Churches" via Combat Records in 1985. They would follow with "Beyond the Gates" and the five-song EP "The Eyes of Horror" before disbanding several years later. A best of was released, "Victims of Death", in 1993.

^^^yes he was. Back in 1989, Jeff was robbed by two drug addicts who shot him and left him paralyzed from the waist down.
