Add to Calendar 04-03-2012 04-03-2012 15 POSSESSED Possessed started in 1983 as a San Francisco garage band with guitarist Mike Torrao and drummer Mike Sus. When the two managed to recruit singer and bassist Jeff Becerra, they formed the band Possessed. Together with second guitarist Brian Montana, the group started perfecting its own brand of metal, which was the precursor to modern death metal - fast, savage riffs, warp-speed drums, mile-a-second solos, and raspy, growled vocals. Possessed soon took San Francisco's metal scene by storm, playing with fellow Bay Area thrashers Exodus. In 2007, original bassist and vocalist Becerra, paralyzed from the waist down as the result of a tragic shooting, reformed Possessed with another new lineup. Since then, the band has been performing its trademark death metal style in venues across the country. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=104064 B.B. King Blues Club & Grill true DD/MM/YYYY
