Benighted Premiere New Song “Stab The Weakest”

Benighted have premiered a new song titled “Stab The Weakest.“ The track is inspired by Michael Myers and it can be streamed below:

Julien Truchan commented:

“We all agree to say that these times we are living in really suck, so everything we can do to cheer us up is welcome! We, Benighted, decided to prepare something special for you and do it the HALLOWEEN way! That’s why we’ve released a new track today called ‘Stab The Weakest,’ a brutal track where you might recognize one of your favorite horror movies theme’s….

With this track, we also have released a very cool shirt designed by our brother Gary Ronaldson, who did a fantastic job again! You can order it and other items on our brand-new Big Cartel shop!”

For #Halloween 🎃 I’m going as a scumbag named Scam Likely 🕺🏼 He was once fired by a laundry company that serviced women’s prisons bcz he got caught sniffing the dirty bedding 😐 At his local bar, he offers #freemustacherides to anyone who’ll listen. Only a few have said yes so far but the list includes his grandma’s bingo partner, an albino yoga instructor from Belarus 🧘🏻‍♂️ and a #CheetoShitler supporter (with blonde hair & spray tan) who demanded he call her Mr. Big Hands 🤔 Scam douses himself with a bottle of Sex Panther cologne hoping to hide his chronic halitosis that reeks of dirty ashtrays boiled with used diapers in a public restroom 🤢 He’s had four teeth removed, his jaw broken by a young law student for “inappropriate touching” 😑 His next project is to upload some “really slick shit” & maybe someone will say “that dude’s a fucking stud” & he’ll be awarded the Ambassadorship to Acapulco (we’ve tried telling him so just forget it) 🙄 And when he gets bored he begins his ritual of cringe that’s just too gross to print 😖 So remember the name #ScamLikely 🕺🏼 It’s gonna be dreadfully delightful 🎃 If you get offended that’s on you. Maybe look in the mirror to see if you’re a creep too 🤨 Otherwise just deal with it. It’s a comedic bit. From now till Halloween ☠️💋 #besafe & #bleesedbe 🙏🏽 🎃 #Boss 🧟‍♂️#Alpha 🙋🏼‍♂️ #King 👑 #OTEP 💀
