Next POSSESSED Album Will 'Definitely' Be 'Different', Says JEFF BECERRA

In a new interview with El Planeta Del RockPOSSESSED frontman Jeff Becerra spoke about the progress of the songwriting sessions for the band's follow-up to 2019's "Revelations Of Oblivion" LP. He said (as transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET): "I'm about halfway done — a little more than halfway done with the next album. We had that stall 'cause I got sick and had to have a surgery and COVID. But COVID would have been the perfect time to write, but then I had to go to the hospital. So I'm back from the surgery. Everything's cool. So between touring we're writing."

Regarding the musical direction of the new POSSESSED material, Becerra said: "I think this one, we're kind of taking some turns, which is always dangerous, but people are like that with POSSESSED no matter what we do. So, yeah, I'm just kind of taking my time at writing, coming from the heart and really working on it. But it's definitely a different kind of album."

As for how he looks back on "Revelations Of Oblivion" five years after the LP's release, Jeff said: "I really liked it. It's weird. When you make new music, you're like, 'Oh, this song's gonna go over like gangbusters,' but then it's always the songs that you didn't expect [that] statistically do better. So I've lost track of trying to pay attention or trying to guide the machine. I'm just playing what I want, and I think with 'Revelations', I had to kind of stay in my own lane, which was great. It was straight-forward."
