“We are very proud to unleash this very special track that we recorded to support our dear friends from the Rock N’Eat venue in Lyon! The owners of the venue are brothers who are part of the underground scene for more than 20 years and they have put all of their guts in this great venue where so many amazing bands already played like Aborted, Suffocation, Entombed, Der Weg Einer Freiheit, and many others!

Of course because of Covid 19, things are very difficult for them and we want to do everything we can to help them because they FUCKING DESERVE IT! So pls, my friends, we invite you to download this new brutal track and donate what you can to keep the underground alive !!! Thank you for this ! Love you all!”

In other news, the group are also streaming their new album “Obscene Repressed” in full. That effort will be released tomorrow (April 10). Drummer Kevin Paradis said the following about that:

“It’s with a lot of pride and excitement that we share this album with you! We can’t wait to have some feedback on our work, and I hope our music will bring you some brutal hours during these difficult times! As drummer of the band since their last EP, I have tried to bring some lightening fast blast beat and double bass drum, some groovy beats, intricate fills and polyrythms, but all of this with a punk spirit mandatory to Benighted Brutal Death Metal/Grindcore spirit!

Anyway, I’ve found in these new songs some of the best guitars riffs I ever had to drum on, and I hope you will like them as much as I do, not to mention the unique vocals of our dear Julien. Let’s wish him a good recovery!”

Benighted Premiere “Nails” Music Video

Benighted have premiered a NSFW video for their new song “Nails.” This track is from the band’s new album “Obscene Repressed,“ which will be released April 10.

Kick Your Eyes did a great job again with this new creepy music video about the story of Michael. We want to thank all the amazing people who worked for this video, especially Ni colas Delpierre, François Le Goazigo and Roswell! Of course also this incredible casting:

Young Michael : Jorick
Adult Michael : Cyril Van Zandijcke
Dad : Abdé Maziane
Mom : Cecile Rossi

Special thanks to Laurie Muah (special effects) and Pauline Dissais (make-up)
Enjoy it, sickos! And please share it everywhere!”

BENIGHTED NEW ALBUM : "OBSCENE REPRESSED" !!!! 😍😍😍 Fellows, it’s about time to give birth to the very twisted and violent little brother that 'Necrobreed' deserves. We are back to the Kohlekeller Studio (Powerwolf, Aborted, Crematory) in Germany and if some of you thought that it would be difficult to go even further in brutality and insanity than Necrobreed, we are impatient for you to throw an ear on this new piece of our guts… Our humanoid machine Kevin Paradis started yesterday recording the drums for the upcoming album called 'Obscene Repressed' and we can’t wait to deliver you the most intense stuff we've ever made! This concept-album is about the story of a schizophrenic young man, with a cleft palate and serious oedipal issues that lead him to think and do extremely delusional things that you will discover among the songs… Hope you will enjoy this new beautiful love story! Ah ah! Stay sick, my friends! 👊👊👊 BENIGHTED Live 23 Nov 19 Strasbourg (FR) La Maison Bleue (+Inhumate) 10 Apr 20 Oslo (NO) INFERNO METAL FESTIVAL NORWAY 2020 25 Jul 20 Steenwijk (NL) Stonehenge Festival 2020 21 Aug 20 Spital am Semmering (AT) Kaltenbach Open Air (Exact date TBA) #seasonofmist #kohlekeller ##pearldrums #trickpedals #tcymbals #scorpiondrumsticks #serialdrummers #metaldrummer ##deathmetal #brutaldeathmetal #grindcore #extremedrumming #blastbeats
