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.

The group commented:

“We are very proud to unleash our third track, taken from ‘Obscene Repressed,’ in the most disturbing video we have ever made! With ‘Nails,’ discover what happens when a psychotic boy faces oedipal issues with his mother and gets paranoid about his dad being responsible for his facial deformity…

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!”

Nails played Friday night of @DecibelMagazine Metal and Beer Fest LA edition and we had a great time. Thanks to the Decibel crew and the Santa Ana Observatory for hosting us and having us be involved. We hope to do it again! Moving forward we're going to dedicate our time to wrapping up our 4th album which will be released via Nuclear Blast in the second half of 2020. We'll drop in here and there to let you know what we're up to and how the progress is going. We got some great material that we can't wait for you to hear. As we approach our 4th album, I think it's safe to say it can be expected that we're going to deliver something that you feel is worth your money. We're not trying to branch out or transition our sound, it's all about the same motivation, same dedication, same strength as before. We'll see you in 2020. Much respect and appreciation.
