American death metal band Possessed comes from San Francisco Bay Area, California, the United States. It was formed in 1983 and the current members of the band are Jeff Becerra (vocals and bass), Ernesto Bueno (guitar), Rick Cortez (guitar), Bay Cortez (bass guitar) and Emilio Marquez (drums). Many critics name the band to be the “godfathers” of the death metal. Some call them first death metal band ever mainly because of brutal and speed vocals of Jeff Becerra. Their influence on the genre is so great that it received its name from the band’s debut demo “Death Metal”. The band itself faced break-ups but they finally reformed in 2007. The band has released only two studio albums so far. The debut album Seven Churches was released in 1985 and was praised by the critics. The follow-up Beyond the Gates came out in 1986.
