Immortal Possession is an old school Death Metal band based out of the murder capital of Canada (Winnipeg, Manitoba). Founded in 1989,they are renowned for their incredibly tight and bestial live performances. These OG’s of the Canadian Death Metal scene blazed the trail alongside bands like Kataklysm and Cryptopsy. They independently released three demos in their active years between 1990 and 1998 (Grave News From the Other Side/1991, Delicacy of Disease/1992 and Mass Murder/1994), attaining international acclaim through underground tape trading and fanzines.

The band reunited a few times over the years (2001, 2006 and 2016) remaining inactive until recently,when there was interest from multiple labels to reissue their recordings. Chuck Labossiere and John Duke (IP’s original members) had no interest in this venture, as they felt the sound quality and the performances didn’t do the songs justice. After being approached to reunite IP for Manitoba Metalfest 2020, they enlisted VOTOV drummer Derrick Kroll and decided to record the Immortal Possession catalogue the way it was meant to be represented and signed to CDN Records.in 2021..Originally a four piece, theyrecruited longtime friend Lee Arnone (Headcramp) as a secondary guitar player to complete the line-up. “The Resurrectionist” is the result of 30 plus years of OSDM fury, ready to be unleashed worldwide by CDN Records on December 9th/2022!
