London proto-metal trio Possessor will be unleashing their new album, Damn The Light, in the autumn.

Set for an October release on APF records, it was written entirely from the band’s homes during the Covid-19 lockdown and only rehearsed via phone videos and voice messages.

Recorded at Bear Bites Horse Studio, Damn The Light is the follow-up to 2019’s Gravelands and features new sticksman Nathan Perrier, who will be familiar to fans of 11 Paranoias, Satan’s Wrath and the much-missed Capricorns.

And the band have given us a teaser of what’s to come with Coffin Fit, the first single taken from the album,

Possessor guitarist/vocalist Graham Bywater commented: “Coffin Fit showcases our unhinged love of all things metal as it flies out of the gates with an ancient and unholy sounding lysergic swagger inspired by the likes of Church of Misery and later Darkthrone before galloping off into the night with a crowd surfing NWOBHM attack on the soul.

“Solos flying free and drums catapulting the listening into an abyss of horror crazed madness!”
