Following the North American release of SPAWN OF POSSESSION‘s anticipated third album, Incurso, last week, the Swedish technical death metal horde’s latest work cracked the Billboard charts! The blistering record landed at #63 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart and also came in at #62 on the Hard Music Chart in its first week, leaving weaker metal records smoldering in its wake!
Featuring current and former members of Necrophagist and Obscura, Incurso is the first album to be unleashed by SPAWN OF POSSESSION in over five years, and the band’s first for Relapse Records. Already being perceived as one of the most acclaimed extreme releases of 2012 by international metal media outlets, the mind-boggling high-speed attack of Incurso remains as epic and smooth-flowing as it is technically brilliant and unabashedly heavier than hell over the entire course of its near hour-long lifespan, and is unarguably the most professional recording in the heralded Swedish outfit’s ongoing lineage. The entire album is still streaming via MetalSucks, RIGHT HERE.
SPAWN OF POSSESSION‘s first full tour assault in support of Incurso has been underway for two weeks today, with another two weeks of brutality for the European people to be had. Stay tuned for tour updates and much more on SOP throughout the rest of the year.
