Beyond Possession - Beyond Possession Is Beyond Possession (1986)

This is the classic Beyond Possession LP, released Metal Blade Records. We've always wondered why, three years later, the band split without recording anything else. (AND a bonus - we got our hands on a copy of this on tape - so there's the cassette art as well!)

We'll point you over to We Will Bury You again for some great scans of the cover art, liner notes/lyric sheets and vinyl of this release. They mention that this was put out on tape as well - which we can't find any real evidence of. We'll also suggest - if you're feeling nostalgic - that you pop by the (soon to be archived?) Beyond Possession Facebook group, which has a few nice bits of ephemera.
