Get Possessed on the Whisky: Of the entire bands that have been part of the unique Bay Space thrash steel scene, Possessed have been probably the most excessive, and the one who in reality went on to persuade numerous loss of life steel or even black steel bands. We now have that to thank them for, as they get ready for this Whisky display. Darkish as Loss of life, GraveDanger, Exitosus, Xaphane, Putrescence, and Disciples of Loss of life additionally carry out.

Possessed has been off and on over time, first forming in ’83 and breaking apart in ’87 (Primus’ Larry LaLonde was once the guitarist for many of that point), then energetic from ’90 to ’93, and in spite of everything reforming in 2007 and sticking it out.

1985’s Seven Church buildings is their vintage, whilst 2019’s Revelations of Oblivion is the 3rd and most up-to-date album.

Again in 2019, Rob Cardenas of Possessed spoke to us about a few of his largest live performance stories: “Bolt Thrower traveling Warmaster in Pomona must be discussed. How about Metallica on the Troubadour proper prior to Monsters of Rock, or Scorpions and Iron Maiden with Foreigner and Loverboy at Anaheim Stadium, in 1983. I may just take note nice presentations at a spot known as the Waters Membership in San Pedro, like Malevolent Introduction or Candlemass and Atheist, the remaining display with bassist Roger Patterson, who was once killed in transit after their efficiency. Let’s now not omit the good Whisky A Move Move when I used to be blessed to wait Lemmy’s party with Metallica and behind the scenes with all the ones nice icons. Now that one was once a travel. I additionally recall yet another nice efficiency, which was once the notorious US Competition with Quiet Rebellion, Mötley Crüe, Triumph, Ozzy, Judas Priest, Scorpions and Van Halen. I nonetheless assume until this present day no pageant will ever most sensible the good US Competition of ’83.”
