Brutality may, sometimes, be so excessive in some bands that can damage a good work. To be extreme may not be as extreme as you can do. But there are bands that can be extreme and do something really good, as French quintet BENIGHTED is showing in their new album, "Carnivore Sublime".

The band is good, no doubt about it, the album is fine, can make your neck ache, but their music, and besides has a pulping brutality, needs to put more of them inside their music. In terms of Brutal Death Metal / Grindcore, they're good, but distant from names as ABORTED and DYING FETUS. It's good, but could be better.

The sound production is good, keeping the band as extreme as clear, so, no trouble with it, for band's guitars, drums and bass are fine to our ears, vocals are very good, but this thing of trying to sound like a dying pig is boring.

Their best moments: the short "X2Y", the storming "Noise", "Experience Your Flesh" (great guitar riffs), "Defiled Purity" (the drummer is a monster!), and "Collection of Dead Portraits" (the vocal diversity is very good, except for the dying pig thing).

A good band, but they can do better than this. Fury and brutality aren't the only things in terms of extreme Metal.
