Listen to new track by Benighted ‘Versipellis’

By on 16 November 2016

This new track by Benighted ‘Versipellis’ is taken from the band’s new album ‘Necrobreed’ which is out 17 February 2017 on Season of Mist. You can buy ‘Necrobreed’ here.

“Here we go! ‘Versipellis’ is the first track to be unleashed from our new album ‘Necrobreed’. We are extremely proud to reveal this brutal crusher, which is backed up by the insane pounding of our new drummer Romain Goulon, whom you might know from Necrophagist. ‘Versipellis’ represents one of the two songs on this album that come with French lyrics – don’t tell us, you did not notice – and represents a part of this record’s concept that revolves around a schizophrenic, who stitches dead animals to his abdomen in a ritual to ‘give them birth’ and build his own morbid family! Enjoy and share please! Stay sick!”

“Benighted recorded ‘Necrobreed’ once again in Germany’s Kohlekeller Studio. The other constant with these brutal death addicts is an album concept that comes based on a theme revolving round 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 stitches 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.”
