Belgium's POSSESSION and America's SPITE, jointly titled Passio Christi Part I / (Beyond the) Witch's Spell


Possesion By now, POSSESSION should need little introduction. Since 2012, these stalwarts' ascent from the depths of the underground has been fiery, to say the very least. Organic but never exacting, their steady stream of short-length releases have revealed stark and horrifying truths, culminating in 2017's modern classic Exorkizein debut full-length, released jointly by INVICTUS and IRON BONEHEAD.

Continuing to strike while the iron's hot - RED fucking HOT - POSSESSION are releasing two separate split EPs, in complementary fashion, with likeminded hordes SPITE and VENEFIXION. Passio Christ Part I, their split with SPITE, sees them flexing more deathly muscles, hammering with unrelenting bestiality but putting forth a classic and most-ancient touch of Metal of Death. SPITE, from the United States, are suitably matched here: not only because they've kept a patiently spare release rate, as well as their debut album - 2018's masterful Antimoschiach - being released by INVICTUS, but mainman Salpsan similarly pursues a uniquely idiosyncratic vision of black metal. Here, between one new track and a cult cover of Manitú's "Cruel Creator," SPITE travel fleetly through the dungeons with a shimmering, haunting sort of glory. Drawing together the totality of this release is an eerie, mood-setting intro courtesy of POSSESSION.

In these days of haphazard, poorly-matched "split" releases, POSSESSION and SPITE conjure forth the format's original magick with Passio Christi Part I / (Beyond the) Witch's Spell!
