POSSESSED’s Jeff B. Becerra has given his stamp of approval to Brazil’s HEADHUNTER D.C. whose new album "God’s Spreading Cancer" will be released through Ibex Moon Records on January 19, 2010. Becerra had this to say about the long-running act: "HEADHUNTER D.C. is an amazing band playing amazing music. Their style is both old school and avant-garde at the same time. HEADHUNTER D.C. has amazing stage presence and energy and this shows in the reaction of the crowd who seem to feed off the band as the band feeds on them. With this latest album HEADHUNTER D.C. brought in a new era of amazing music and once again put Brazil on the map for being what seems to be a spawning ground of Metal which borderlines on perfection. I will always and forever be a HEADHUNTER D.C. fan and am extremely lucky to be also a brother and friend to them. Hails to the mighty HEADHUNTER D.C.! They will live forever!" "God’s Spreading Cancer" includes a NECROVORE cover and three bonus live tracks exclusive to the Ibex Moon Records version. The U.S. release date is January 19, 2010.
