EXCLUSIVE: Benighted – Spit

Who doesn't want some grinding brutality on a Tuesday afternoon? Check out this brand new video from Benighted taken from their latest album.


Featuring Niklas Kvarforth from black metal outfit Shining, Benighted have created one gargantuan slab of deathgrind to crumble your pathetic eardrums into dust.

Hailing from Saint-Étienne, France, Benighted have been causing a sinister stir in the metal world since their 2011 LP Asylum Cave – a concept album based around one man’s obsession with Josef Fritzl. And new album Carnivore Sublime is a no less evil or brutal offering.

Luke Morton joined Metal Hammer as Online Editor in 2014, having previously worked as News Editor at popular (but now sadly defunct) alternative lifestyle magazine, Front. As well as helming the Metal Hammer website for the four years that followed, Luke also helped relaunch the Metal Hammer podcast in early 2018, producing, scripting and presenting the relaunched show during its early days. He also wrote regular features for the magazine, including a 2018 cover feature for his very favourite band in the world, Slipknot, discussing their turbulent 2008 album, All Hope Is Gone.
