BENIGHTED Reveal Brutal New Song & Video "Casual Piece Of Meat"

And now I'm scarred for life.

In what is easily the most disturbing music video I've ever seen in my life, Benighted make Criminal Minds look like a Disney flick with the sadism-drenched "Casual Piece of Meat." You can check it out above… you know, if you dig that sort of thing. OK, so I kid—but only just a little bit. The video conjures all the imagery that you would expect from a hillbilly hellfire genre clip that doesn't try to hide the influence: waifish white girl lost on a dirt road, sicko in a pickup more than willing to give her a ride, fast-forward to our heroine bound and gagged while aforementioned sicko (whose actual name is Michael) role plays with morbid-looking dolls.

Like I said… It's fucking brilliant. About the track and the video, Benighted vocalist Julien Truchan said, "Here we go, guys! Another part of our lovely Michael story and the search for his mom's love. We want to thank everyone who's been involved in this creepy disgusting project, with a sweet taste of Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Kick Your Eyes [Productions] did great once again with these amazing actors. We give you 'Casual Piece of Meat!' Enjoy it and SHARE, SHARE, SHARE!!!"

Benighted have been paying their dues over the years, making their way through the underground with their dominating live show. Appearances at major festivals such as Hellfest and Inferno Fest only increased the band’s profile. But success is hard and relative in the music industry, and Benighted take nothing for granted.

“When we started, it was just a band of friends,” says Truchan. “We rehearsed for years every Saturday in my dad's garage and had parties in the evening. We just wanted to have fun with friends, but then we decided to tour as much as possible and see what could happen. 22 years later, things have been beyond my craziest dreams.”
