Madness reigns! BENIGHTED deliver the radical soundtrack to these savage times. With their new full-length ‘Necrobreed’, the French sidestep the steadily growing complexity of their previous albums ‘Asylum Cave’ (2011) and ‘Carnivore Sublime’ (2014) by recalibrating their sound along their roots.
‘Necrobreed’ is the result of modern violence combined with an undercurrent of old school feeling. BENIGHTED keep their grinding influences but classic death metal clearly shows through the fabric. Those insane pig squeals are backed-up by massive growling. Crushing riffing and nuclear drumming meet subtle melodies and hidden hooks are fueling the fury.
BENIGHTED were spawned by members from French Death and Black metal bands DISHUMANIZED, DARKNESS FIRE, and OSGILIATH, who joined forces in 1998 for a more brutal, heavy and modern way of expression. When their first self-produced and self-titled full-length hit the streets in 2000, it immediately had a strong impact. This turned a side-project into a main act. A fast-growing fan base was built by a string of acclaimed albums: ‘Psychose’ (2002), ‘Insane Cephalic Production’ (2004), ‘Identisick’ (2006), and ‘Icon’ (2007) were all enthusiastically received.
On the live front, BENIGHTED quickly started to capture audiences with sweat driver performances that bulldozer any resistance mercilessly aside. This allowed the French to climb up the ladder fast and soon came invitations to all major European festivals including Neurotic Death Fest, Hellfest, Wacken, Brutal Assault, Summer Breeze, and Inferno Festival among many more.
BENIGHTED recorded ‘Necrobreed’ once again in Germany’s Kohlekeller Studio in continuation of a very successful relationship. The other constant with these brutal death addicts is an album concept that comes based on a theme revolving around the abysmal potential of the human psyche. This time vocalist (and caretaker in a mental asylum) Julien Truchan penned lyrics dealing with a man, who is stitching dead animals to his abdomen. On feeling the warmth of his infected flesh, the schizophrenic « gives birth » to the carcass and places it in his house as the result of a severe childhood trauma involving a dead cat.
‘Necrobreed’ gives an extreme musical voice to the madness lurking within. Let your mind be shaken by BENIGHTED. In case of side effects, please see a doctor.
The Amersfoort (NL)-based quartet formed originally in 2000, but that first run was a brief one.
The band broke up in 2003 and it seemed like their album ‘Section 8’ as well as their name were destined to molder forever in obscurity.
Until drummer Edwin Nederkoorn and guitarist Winfred Koster reunited with the help of other Dutch death metalers in 2015. The band gained a record deal with Sleaszy Rider records and since then Bloodphemy have released a 2016 EP ‘Blood Will Tell’ and the album ‘Bloodline’ in 2017.
To promote these albums the band crushed stages in Germany, Luxembourg, Czech Republic, Austria, Croatia, Poland, Slovakia and Holland on festivals like Czech Death fest, Kaltenbach open air, Headbangers Bash, Gothoom and many others.
And now the Dutch death metal group released ‘In Cold Blood’ via Black Lion records (2019).
Ten tracks in length, more classic sounding than old school and without the slightest hint of pretension. In Cold Blood represents some real, straight-for-the-throat, outrageously violent death metal! With a mighty brutal wall of sound produced at the Soundlodge Studio by Jörg Uken.
Drawing influence from Florida, Sweden and their Dutch heritage while at the same time these blood-obsessed Dutchmen distinguish themselves from the horde with clever guitarwork and plenty of unique groove.
Chaos comes crashing in waves. Patterns emerge out of swirling energy. Darkness coalesces out of fragments into bizarre forms and strange angled shapes. What reads like a list of entries into H.P. Lovecraft’s dictionary of horrors is the nightmarish musical vision offered by NIGHTMARER on their debut album, Cacophony of Terror.
Seemingly out of nowhere, NIGHTMARER hit the extreme metal underground with their first EP Chasm in early 2016. This furious whirlwind of low end dissonance, devastating heaviness and majestic walls of sound took the scene by storm and the first 10″ vinyl pressing sold out fast.
Conceived in 2014 by former members of bands such as GIGAN, THE OCEAN and WAR FROM A HARLOTS MOUTH, this international trio derives only the most extreme elements of their previous musical outlets and takes those into another hellish dimension.
Carving their distinctly personal and unique path into the dark matter that DEATHSPELL OMEGA, DODECAHEDRON and ULSECT have ventured to explore, NIGHTMARER are now set to release one of the darkest and crushing albums of 201 8. Enter this Cacophony of Terror in search of extreme sonic pleasures at your own peril!
