Alien Sex Fiend return with their ferocious new album. Packed with pounding rhythms, speaker- shredding guitars, squelchy synthesisers and, of course, Nik Fiend’s latest chainsaw-psychiatry outpourings, ‘Possessed’ puts the Fiends back where they belong, at the top of their own rotten pile.

Alien Sex Fiend present their brand-new studio album, ‘Possessed’, the latest outer-sonic instalment of their 35 year trip into the far out and unthinkable.
The first new album since 2010’s hugely successful ‘Death Trip’, and heavily dosed with ASF’s genre-defying collage of pounding beats, speaker-shredding guitars, Mrs Fiend’s mutant analogue synthesisers and the surrealist chainsaw-psychiatry of frontman Nik Fiend, ‘Possessed’ is a remarkable return. The unrelenting highs of ‘Shit’s Coming Down’ and ‘Carcass’…. The spaced out soundscapes of ‘Ghost In The Machine’ and ‘Neutron’……. The pulsating insistence of the epic, eleven minute ‘It’s In My Blood’ and a haunting anthem-for-the-fucked by the name of ‘Invisible’…… this is the Fiends at their blood-curdling, mind-expanding best. TNT for the brain and battery acid for the flagging soul.
Legendary, much loved and described by Kris Needs as ‘A British institution’, Alien Sex Fiend command a reputation and a longevity few can match; ‘Possessed’ takes that reputation for horror, humour and explorations of inner turmoil and outer space to the next level – an intoxicating lesson from the originals. The list of artists inspired by the Fiends’ unique brew of heavy, lysergic sonic alchemy – whether they knew it or not – is a long one… but Alien Sex Fiend are all those in the know have ever needed.
‘Possessed’ sees the Fiends’ continue to explore their taste for audio and visual experimentation. Eagerly anticipated by the band’s legion of followers, this is music to comfort the disturbed and disturb the comfortable. And now it’s here. Enjoy. Watch the skies. Have IT.
