Biography of Band
|Benighted was born in 1998, resulting from the gathering of musicians from the bands Darkness Fire, Osgiliath and Dishumanized.
The music of Benighted is often defined as brutal black / death; with influences of bands such as Marduk or Cannibal Corpse. The goal of the songs is to translate at the same time a climate of violence and discomfort while keeping the effectiveness of the song.
Benighted gives much importance to the changes within the songs by variations of rhythms, breaks, incisive riffs... The Speed and the brutality of the tracks are amplified by black and gutturals voices on several tone.
The effectiveness of the songs in concert and the feedback of the audience made it possible to select those which would be present on a first album "Benighted" which was recorded in June 2000 in Plaza Records in five days. This first album had only positive returns in particular from the magazines and fanzines. The band then plays everywhere in France following the requests of French fans.
The band decided to record a new CD which is released by Adipocere Records and which contains only songs written after the first recording. The new pieces are more in a death style and gained in brutality and technicality.
This album is entitled "Psyhose" and the topic dominating of the CD is the psychosis and persecution mania. This new album wants to show that the French scene has a place to hold in the European scene!
