Post Mortal Possession is a death metal band hailing from Pittsburgh, PA, formed in 2013. Post Mortal Possession quickly began writing songs, combining influences from favorites such as Gorgasm, Severed Savior and Severe Torture, along with numerous other classic death metal acts like Decapitated, Morbid Angel, Cannibal Corpse, Suffocation, and Deicide. After a year of dedicated writing, Post Mortal Possession played countless shows promoting the music alongside touring bands like Vital Remains, Vale of Pnath, Incantation, Rivers of Nihil, Black Crown Initiate, Fisthammer, Dehumanized, Kamikabe with many of Pittsburgh’s local and regional acts. Post Mortal Possession began gaining momentum in the death metal community and became known for their intense riffs, blistering drums, elaborate guitar solos and overall face-melting performances.

In 2014 they recorded their debut EP “Possessing Entity” with Shane Mayer of Shane Brutal Studios. “Possessing Entity”, consisting of 5 tracks of extreme death metal, establishes itself right out of the gate as a technically proficient, yet fiercely aggressive release (Tyler Cole, Tyler Cole Reviews). It is a clinic of riffs and brutality (Scott, Skull Fracturing Metal). With this release under Post Mortal Possession’s belts, 2015 should prove a catalyst for the ever-growing establishment of the band. This release is merely a taste of what’s to come. You can expect another release by the end of the year and regional touring throughout the north-eastern USA as they continue to leave their mark on the death metal underground.
