SPAWN OF POSSESSION: 'Incurso' First-Week Sales Revealed

"Incurso", the third full-length album from Swedish tech-death assassins SPAWN OF POSSESSION, sold around 700 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The CD debuted at position No. 63 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.

Released on March 13 via Relapse Records, "Incurso" was recorded at Pama Studios in Kristianopel, Sweden with engineer Magnus "Mankan" Sedenberg.

According to a press release, "devastating riffs, jaw-dropping time-signatures and improbably complex songwriting coalesce to create an opus of next-level death metal on 'Incurso', which the band promises to be their most supreme work to date, and more devastating than ever."

The "Incurso" cover art was created by graphic artist Pär Olofsson (IMMORTAL, IMMOLATION, DYING FETUS) and can be seen below.
