Sure you can get this from other Bandcamps. But this particular version includes the 'Anneliese' tracks, and comes cheap only from Invictus. The band and label both continue to slay and impress.
Favorite track: Ceremony.
“Belgium’s Possession are moving from strength to hideous strength. They began precociously with their 2013 demo (His Best Deceit), took forward steps with their 2014 EP (Anneliese — reviewed here), and have made even more progress with their second EP, 1585-1646. Equal parts morbidly atmospheric and rifftastically raging, it’s an unholy union of black, death, and thrash metal that’s well worth adding to your musical arsenal.”
And that’s how I began my review of 1585-1646 in the middle of last month. I heaped more words of praise on top of this blazing pyre of music, but the main point of this post isn’t to see my own words again (no matter how thrilling that may be), it’s to let you hear another new song from this EP
Weirdo death metal that calls to mind a bit of Demilich and a lot of the sadly-defunct Howls of Ebb, but presented in a more aggressive package, this is an ever-shifting yet tightly-crafted descent into the depths of hell. In the hands of lesser musicians, these wild compositions would have skidded off of the tracks into quite the train wreck, but on Heptaedrone we are treated to seamless transitions of riff after glorious riff, with thunderous percussion and bass to anchor it all. Glorious! Ippocalyptica
