Benighted announce special anniversary show and festival dates


Benighted have announced a big birthday party for their band in Villeurbanne (Lyon) on May 5th. The French death grind extremists will be joined by many special guests.

Vocalist Julien Truchan comments: “We will celebrate 20 years of Benighted  with a special show at the CCO in Villeurbanne, Lyon on the 5th of May! We hope that you can make it and bring along all the craziness that you are capable of! We have prepared a very special setlist and invited many dear friends to join us on stage like Niklas from Shining, Sven from Aborted, Arno from Black Bomb A, and also  former members of the band! We will record this show to be a part of our Anniversary EP, which will be released later this year by Season of Mist! Come and join us and let’s make this an unforgettable party!”
