Long-running UK extreme metallers BENEDICTION recently completed work on their new album, "Killing Music", due before the end of the year via Nuclear Blast Records.
Commented the band: "We had Karl Willetts from BOLT THROWER come into Mick Kenney's Necrodeath Studio to lay down some vocals on the AMEBIX cover 'Largactyl' that we recorded. With payment to Karl of cans of Stella Artois and Benson And Hedges cigarettes he roared out as only Karl can and made this version of the track a brutal little affair! Helping out on the chorus lines was The Fog from FROST. All this was captured on film and we are sure this will see the light of day when the album is released. More friends putting in an appearance over the next week or so.The mixing is close to finishing so it's time for us to lighten up and have a bit of fun doing the cover songs with our friends."
