Possessed “The Eyes Of Horror” EP Produced By Joe Satriani

The 3rd Album By Possessed Produced By Joe Satrirni

POSSESSED THE EYE OF HORROR was released in 1987. It was produced by guitarist Joe Satriani. This was the last album for 30 years. The original line up never reformed. Not long after the release of Eyes Of Horror Jeff Becerra was a shot in a robbery attempt and was left paralyzed from the neck down. Not long after, the original line-up went their own ways.

What Happened Mike Sus, Larry Lalonde and Mike Torrao?

Mike Sus went back to school and obtained a degree in psychology and was never active in music again. Guitarist Mike Torrao joined Infanticide, but they never released any songs publicly and broke up in 1997. He now works as a landscaper and plays music only in his spare time.

Most famously, Larry Lalonde would go one to join Blind Illusionwhere he met Les Claypool and the formed Primus. Larry downplays his status as an ex-Possessed memeber and rarely mentions it publicly.

Possessed Band Update 2019

Jeff Becerra continues to tour and record under the name Possessed with an entirely new group on musicians. In 2019 the new line-up released the shockingly good “Revelations Of Oblivion” which has become both a critical and commercial success.

Very courageously, Jeff contains to record and front the band from a wheel chair and in my opinion does a fantastic job.
