Le groupe "culte" de death metal british est de retour au travail.
Long-running Birmingham, U.K.-based extreme metallers BENEDICTION are in the process of writing their first album in 10 years.

After getting together a few months ago, guitarists and original members Darren Brookes and Peter Rewinsky have been compiling ideas for a new release. Both agree that it's the best stuff they have written for a really long time and say it will not disappoint any BENEDICTION fans. Vocalist Dave Hunt, who has been in the band since 1998, is also enthused about the new music and is currently writing lyrics as the material is being presented to him.

"It's the first time in forever that we've been this excited," Brookes said. "Can't wait to get cracking and to get back on stage."

BENEDICTION's first concerts in three years will take place on the 70000 Tons Of Metal cruise in early February.

BENEDICTION's latest album, "Killing Music", was released in North America in September 2008 via Locomotive Records. The follow-up to 2001's "Organized Chaos" was produced by ANAAL NATHRAKH mastermind Mick Kenney and features several guest musicians, including Karl Willets (BOLT THROWER), Kelly Shaefer (ATHEIST), Billy Gould (ex-FAITH NO MORE), The Fog (FROST), Markus Staiger (Nuclear Blast Records owner) and Thorsten Zahn from Metal Hammer Germany.

Dave Ingram a réintégré le groupe.
Long-running Birmingham, U.K.-based extreme metallers BENEDICTION have been rejoined by vocalist Dave Ingram (formerly of BOLT THROWER).

Ingram's return to BENEDICTION comes two months after the departure of the band's previous singer, Dave Hunt. Hunt's schedule had become increasingly congested with his commitments to both BENEDICTION and ANAAL NATHRAKH, as well as his relentless studies for his PhD. Therefore, Dave decided to vacate the rôle in BENEDICTION he commanded for over 20 years.

Ingram, who first joined BENEDICTION in 1990, just before the band began writing its second album, "The Grand Leveller", and left in May 1998, had the following to say about his return to the group: "Dan Bate (BENEDICTION bass player) and myself were already in contact via social media and he had mentioned a few months ago that Daz was looking to contact me. After the surprise revelation, I began to wonder what he'd wanna talk to me about — old contract discussion maybe, back catalogue? Who knows? Could be all sorts. But obviously, as most of you do, I keep up to date with goings on in the metal world and keep a close eye on BENEDICTION and was aware of the situation regarding Dave Hunt's departure from the band. Soon enough, my phone lit up with Darren's number, and after initial baby steps, things escalated at lightning speed. Both ends of the phone were clearly getting excited, and at this point, both my wife and my son said simultaneously that if he is asking you to return to the fold, you had better do it' F@#YEAH!!!!!!! YES, I'M IN!!!!!!

"So here we are, already deep into writing the new album, which at this time is going spectacularly well. The new material is gonna blow you people away!!!!!! We are planning to begin recording in September so not long now.

"And to all my followers on social media I hope you understand that myself and the guys had decided to keep my return under wraps until Dave Hunt had completed his time with the band, a simple and necessary courtesy.

"I can't wait to see you people on the forthcoming BENEDICTION live shows."

Sortie en octobre.
Long-running Birmingham, U.K.-based extreme metallers BENEDICTION will release their new album, "Scriptures", on October 16 via Nuclear Blast. The disc was produced by Scott Atkins at Grindstone Studio in England and will be released digitally, on CD and in various vinyl formats.

The official music video for the disc's first single, "Rabid Carnality", can be seen below.

According to a press release, "Scriptures" "sounds 100% like BENEDICTION: they blend death metal with a 'fuck-off punk rock attitude', heavy metal riffing and a groove that hardly any other band can capture. Dave Ingram's signature growl and powerful lyrics enhance the tonal framework that makes their sound so distinctly BENEDICTION. As usual the tracks vary from slow and heavy to fast and intense, from shorter, in your face rippers to crushing monoliths.

"The artwork fits perfectly to BENEDICTION and awakens and will resonate with any devoted old-school death metal fan. It was created by Birmingham artist Simon Harris and is reminiscent of the iconic artwork of their early output. There's no doubt that it will fit in perfectly to every vinyl collection next to 'Subconscious Terror', 'The Grand Leveler' or 'Transcend The Rubicon'. All in all, 'Scriptures' is an album of bare bones death metal, where everything is just as it should be. A jewel in the catalogue of a band that has been present from the very beginning and, in line with one of their most classic songs 'We Bow To None', has always remained true to themselves and their fans."

Track listing:

01. Iterations Of I
02. Scriptures In Scarlet
03. The Crooked Man
04. Stormcrow
05. Progenitors Of A New Paradigm
06. Rabid Carnality
07. In Our Hands, The Scars
08. Tear Off These Wings
09. Embrace The Kill
10. Neverwhen
11. The Blight At The End
12. We Are Legion

This past January, BENEDICTION was forced to postpone its previously announced South American tour as a result of "serious health problems" suffered by Ingram.

Ingram rejoined BENEDICTION last summer. His return to BENEDICTION came two months after the departure of the band's previous singer, Dave Hunt. Hunt's schedule had become increasingly congested with his commitments to both BENEDICTION and ANAAL NATHRAKH, as well as his relentless studies for his PhD. Therefore, Dave decided to vacate the rôle in BENEDICTION he commanded for over 20 years.

Ingram first joined BENEDICTION in 1990, just before the band began writing its second album, "The Grand Leveller", and left in May 1998.

J'avoue ne jamais avoir vraiment accroche a ce groupe mais le morceau poste a l'air dans la lignee de leurs classiques et je suis content de ne plus voir l'autre chanteur (celui d'Anaal Nathrakh) que je ne supportais pas.
