BENEA REACH To Release 'Possession' In March

Norwegian tech metallers BENEA REACH will release their third full-length offering of epic progressive metal on March 25 via Spinefarm Records. Titled "Possession", the CD was produced by BENEA REACH and Thomas Wang, then mixed and mastered by Tue Madsen (THE HAUNTED, MNEMIC, RAUNCHY) at Antfarm Studio.

Known for his bipolar vocal ability, BENEA REACH frontman Ilkka Volume veers memorably from low belly-aching screams through to high manic shrieks — almost as if the band had a dual-vocal setup. He's excited about the new record, and can't wait for it to be heard…

"Well, it's our third and, in my eyes, the best yet," he states. "Having it released on a label like Spinefarm is great; hopefully, that means it'll reach a lot more people — they'll hear the music, check us out live, enjoy it all and spread the word!

"Heavy rock is a pretty busy genre at the moment, but I really think people will find something a bit different about us and want to discover more — and, if they can start with this new record, that'd be perfect."

The video for CD's first single, "The Mountain", shot in Norway, has been directed and animated by U.K.-based artist and filmmaker Robin Fuller.

BENEA REACH is currently in the planning stages of a full U.K. tour for 2013; European festival appearances are also being lined up.
