BENIGN / Press

“Spokane’s Benign is up next and what a delicious treat they turned out to be. They immediately stepped up the energy in the room, bringing people in from the bar to the floor area. They deliver an onslaught of blistering, in your face metal that was very impressive. They have enormous stage presence as a whole and the vocals are remarkable. They have an ease with dynamic shifts and interweaving melody and include a sludgy, thumping seven string bass line to underscore it all and percussion is persistent and furious. Overall they make what they are doing appear effortless and if they have done it a million times. This band is a machine. I hope they will make the trip over to our area more often.”
