know two members from Benedictum from their previous
band, Malady. Actually i know Veronica,
the singer and Pete the guitar player. To be honest
with you, after i had heard their work with Malady,
i haven't any further connection with the band and suddenly
i receive a demo CD from an American band with the name Benedictum
a few months ago.
i searched a little bit in my database i saw the connection
and now Veronica sent me their debut album which was
released last month through Locomotive Records. The
band's latest record is titled "Uncreation"
and they have included eleven tracks; two of them being covers
of two well known songs from Black Sabbath.
band musically walks in the US heavy metal paths with some
influences from Seven Witches and Metal
Church, but above all they had achieved to have their
personal sound in this album. So you will able to hear some
really impressive guitar work, with a powerful voice from
Veronica and a great rhythm section.
compositions are well developed with some very interesting
ideas inside them, and the thing that i adore was the fact
that Benedictum added their own personal touch inside
the songs from Black Sabbath. They didn't just play it but
used their "Benedictum" sound.
you like heavy / power metal you should hear the album from
Benedictum and i am sure you will find a lot of tunes
that you will adore.
