Release date and label: They released this album to the world on December 9th, 2022 via CDN Records.

Other band releases: After four demos and one video, in 33 years, they finally made it to an album.

How did I meet the band: I'm a bit behind schedule due to moving, but this album has been at the top of my list all along. Metal Devastation Radio sent it to me and I'm starting to like Canadian bands in general. So let's see if it's the same with them.

What do I think of the record: Hard, waltzing and heavy as fuck, they go about their work here, just the way I like it with Death Metal. The riffs aren't too technical, more of a direct punch in the gut, the bass doesn't get buried either and the drumming is really fun. Add to that nasty, sinister growls, straight out of the cool part of hell. Here and there it might be a bit too melodic for one or the other, but for me it has just the right mix. Those few who own their demos won't find much new here, but for everyone else, there's old-school Death Metal without a rust on your ears. So let's have a look at my favourites:

First off we have MASS MURDER who also opens the album. After a short intro it starts right away. Nasty, groovy mid-tempo Death Metal with sinister growls, just how I like my death lead. There is also a very insane violin, and those who know me, instruments from other genres always arouse my interest, especially when they are used really well, as is the case here.

EVILUTION etched itself right into my brain. Perhaps the most technical song on the album. After an intro that could also be part of an old film soundtrack, it starts with unbridled heaviness and technical gimmicks that complement each other perfectly.

Finally, CLASS WARFARE made it onto my list, the only new song on the album. A rather melancholic song that is really heavy as lead and stomps unstoppably through the auditory canals. Here, too, the solos are not missing to loosen up the whole thing. Just damn good.

Conclusion: They have delivered a damn strong album here. I just hope they don't need another 33 years for an album. If you like heavy, rolling Death Metal with dark growls, you should listen to this one. So check out her video: - fullmetalmayhem

Location: Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada

Immortal Possession is an old school Death Metal band based out of the murder capital of Canada (Winnipeg, Manitoba). Founded in 1989,they are renowned for their incredibly tight and bestial live performances. These OG’s of the Canadian Death Metal scene blazed the trail alongside bands like Kataklysm and Cryptopsy. They independently released three demos in their active years between 1990 and 1998 (Grave News From the Other Side/1991, Delicacy of Disease/1992 and Mass Murder/1994), attaining international acclaim through underground tape trading and fanzines.

The band reunited a few times over the years (2001, 2006 and 2016) remaining inactive until recently,when there was interest from multiple labels to reissue their recordings. Chuck Labossiere and John Duke (IP’s original members) had no interest in this venture, as they felt the sound quality and the performances didn’t do the songs justice. After being approached to reunite IP for Manitoba Metalfest 2020, they enlisted VOTOV drummer Derrick Kroll and decided to record the Immortal Possession catalogue the way it was meant to be represented and signed to CDN 2021..Originally a four piece, theyrecruited longtime friend Lee Arnone (Headcramp) as a secondary guitar player to complete the line-up. “The Resurrectionist” is the result of 30 plus years of OSDM fury, ready to be unleashed worldwide by CDN Records on December 9th/2022!
