Paths of Possession is a death metal band featuring George "Corpsegrinder" Fisher in a more melodic environment, with song structures that have much more in common with early Bay Area Thrash than the Tampa death metal scene that he continually defines.Contents Started in 1999 by Randy Butman (Silhaven), Jay Fossen, Erin "Goat" Fuller (Cryptic Winds) and Richard Brunelle (ex-Morbid Angel guitarist), as Swollen, Paths of Possession is a solid mix of traditional heavy metal with influences of Swedish melodic death metal. Paths of Possession independently released their first CD-r demo, Legacy in Ashes in 2002. Following the release of Legacy of Ashes, Erin left the band to join Hell on Earth and was replaced by Brian Ridley (Cancerslug), in 2002.

It was mutually decided that they and Dark Faith would release a split EP, with each band contributing 6 songs. While working on the split, Randy was asked to join Withered Earth, in late 2002, officially doing so in January 2003, resulting in the band going on hiatus and the split being put on hold. Following the release of Withered Earths' "Of Which They Bleed ", the band broke up and Randy returned to Tampa, and set about resurrecting the dormant Paths of Possession. As their then vocalist, Bill, had relocated to New York, Randy asked his friend, George "Corpsegrinder" Fisher (Cannibal Corpse vocals) to take over the vocal position.

Entitled The Crypt of Madness and released on Splattergod Records, limited to 1000 copies. Plans were then made between the band and Splattergod to release their full length CD in late 2004/early 2005. Soon following the split's release, In early 2004, Richard Brunelle was replaced by current guitarist Jack Goodwin, and drummer Brian Ridley left to rejoin Cancerslug.
