Benighted – Release “Leatherface” video

Benighted are premiering the second video for a track taken from their latest album, “Necrobreed”, which features SuicideGirl Cecylia Suicide alongside French actor Matthieu Ambid, who already starred in the previous “Reptilian” clip.

“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 fuelling the fury.

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 French brutal death veterans are now streaming “Leatherface”
