BENIGHTED Release Brutally Insane New Album Ekbom!

On their tenth album, Benighted twist their brutal brand of death metal into something truly tormenting. Ekbom is named after a real-life psychological phenomenon that makes people believe their skin is infested with bugs.

Ekbom comes out today on Season of Mist. Listen to the whole terrifying experience on Season of Mist's YouTube channel.

Listen to Ekbom 

Ekbom crawls under your skin with writhing riffs and blast beats that will raise the hairs on the back of your neck. Just try not to shiver while watching the  bugged-out music video for lead single "Scars".

On "Nothing Left to Fear", Archspire's Oli Peters adds a new dimension of vocal terror, contorting seamlessly with Benighted's terrifying speed.  At 402 BPM, this song proves that when it comes to the realm of death metal, this veteran French band are fearless.

Benighted recorded Ekbom at the studio of producer Kristian Kohlmannslehner, who's worked with bands like Aborted and Powerwolf. Germinating from this lair of dark, intricate production, "Metastasis" cultivates brutal, blackened death metal into a chorus that will crack open the deepest, darkest recesses of your skull.

Ekbom is just waiting to test your sanity. Let it crawl into your ears.
