BENEDICTION To Play Benefit Concert In Birmingham

Long-running UK extreme metallers BENEDICTION will play a benefit show at their local bar, Scruffy Murphy's, in Birmingham on Sunday, February 17. Also scheduled to appear are LIFE DENIED and MUSTA TALVI along with three other local bands. This is a remembrance show for Ian "Wolfie" Smith, who passed away suddenly earlier this year. Only 200 tickets are available and they cost £5 (please bear in mind to get tickets as soon as possible as over 100 have been sold without advertising the show). First band will be on at 4:00 p.m. All proceeds go to Birmingham Children's Hospital.

BENEDICTION is scheduled to release a new album, entitled "Killing Music", later in the year. Songtitles set to appear on the CD include "Killing Music", "Dripping With Disgust", "Rats In The Mask (Controlopolis)", "They Bleed", "I Am The Betrayer" and "Dissembler".

Video footage of BENEDICTION performing a new song, entitled "Killing Music", at the Up From The Ground festival — which took place August 24-25, 2007 in Gemünden, Germany — can be viewed below.

Back in June, BENEDICTION cancelled its previously announced U.S. tour "due to immigration problems." More information is available at this location.
