CD Reviews

Benediction's finest hour. Totally worth having.
Pablosa | Buenos Aires, Capital Federal Argentina | 10/06/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"After listening to "The dreams you dread", their previous album, I was a little disappointed. It's a good album but repetitive and monotonous or boring, if you want. Like if the album was lacking of brilliance. But now you have "Grind Bastard".
This is totally the opposite. You'll find a diverse album, with lots of different tempos, speeds and changes of rhythms. With a strengthened sound, Benediction delivers an album with impeccable song writing. They found here what was missing in the previous one. A turn in their music, nothing new, but they dared to take their music one step further, like the "jumping" riffs in "Deadfall" or the intrincate "Grind Bastard". It's a mixture of their old and new stuff.

You have fast songs such as "Nervebomb", "We the freed" or "Carcinoma Angel". Mid tempos like "West of hell", "Grind bastard" or "The bodiless". And two spectacular covers: Iron Maiden's "Electric eye" and Twisted Sister's "Destroyer". Two great covers empowered by Benediction's sound.
"Deadfall" and "Agonised" are the first two songs. Both catchy and hooky gems, with that powerful, screaming and rotten sound, very heavy and intense, and unique at the same time, that show how much the band has grown up musically. And then album continues. Everything soaked with Benediction's intense, cool and constant arrangements.

You also have the explanation for all the lyrics; what inspired them in each song.

There's nothing to ad. 14 songs of the best death metal you can find. A great album in any way you look at it. Benediction's finest hour!
