For the first time in three decades, Possessed have released a new album, and it is entitled Revelations Of Oblivion. The video for new song, ‘Graven’ was directed by Scott Hansen of Digital Thunderdome (Willie Nelson, Deicide, Carnifex, Prong) and stars renowned Swedish actor, Peter Stormare (Fargo, Prison Break, The Big Lebowski).
Jeff Becerra comments, "We are extremely excited to release our new music video for the song 'Graven'. This is actually our very first cinematic music video. I want to say thank you to my good friend Peter Stormare for everything and for being such an amazing inspiration. Of course, thank you to my band mates. And to Nuclear Blast."
Revelations Of Oblivion was recorded at NRG studios and Titan Studios with Jeff Becerra as executive producer and Daniel Gonzalez as co-producer for the album. Mixing and mastering was handled by Peter Tägtgren (Hypocrisy, Pain, Bloodbath) at Abyss Studios in Sweden. For the artwork, the band enlisted Polish artist Zbigniew Bielak (Paradise Lost, Absu, Deicide, Ghost, Gorguts) to create a piece that brought back the notion of true fear that was once associated with the idea of evil.
Jeff Becerra explains: “Working with Peter was a fantastic experience. We put a great deal of thought into who we wanted to produce our new album. Since we hadn't made an all-new material release in well over 30 years, it was essential that we found the right person. Peter's name kept coming up over and over, and after speaking with my bandmates they all really liked Peter as he is more organic, and somebody we felt would fit in well with our process.”
