Relapse Records has announced the signing of Swedish technical death metallers SPAWN OF POSSESSION. The band is currently writing material for its new album for a fall release.

SPAWN OF POSSESSION (Jonas Bryssling: guitar, Dennis Rndum: vocals, Erlend Casperson: bass, Henrik Schnstrm: drums, Christian Mnzner: guitar) formed in 1997 and has previously released two full-length albums. The band's latest CD, "Noctambulant", received international critical acclaim for its blend of musical chops and unfettered extremity.

Commented SPAWN OF POSSESSION guitarist Jonas Bryssling: "We are very excited to have become part of the Relapse family and their amazing roster.

"The new album will contain nine tracks plus an instrumental intro which we'll be recording throughout the summer starting in June.

"Once again we'll be teaming up with producer Mankan Sedenberg at Pama Studios in Sweden.

"Right now we're prepping the recording and straightening out the last details of the material.

"More good news is on the way so keep your eyes open for a brand new SPAWN OF POSSESSION website which will be launched soon.

"As usual we like to keep what is coming under wraps, but rest assured this record will be quite a slab of imaginative brutality for you guys to sink your teeth into."

SPAWN OF POSSESSION's sophomore album, "Noctambulant", was released in 2006 via Neurotic Records. The CD was recorded at Pama Studios in Kristianopel, Sweden with producer Magnus Sedenberg.
