Benighted Vocalist Julien Truchan Tests Positive For Coronavirus, Band Stream New Album “Obscene Repressed”


Benighted livestreamed their new album “Obscene Repressed” in full earlier today, April 09th. The record will officially hit stores tomorrow, April 10th. Speaking of its impending arrival, the band’s drummer Kevin Paradis commented:

“It’s with a lot of pride and excitement that we share this album with you! We can’t wait to have some feedback on our work, and I hope our music will bring you some brutal hours during these difficult times! As drummer of the band since their last EP, I have tried to bring some lightening fast blast beat and double bass drum, some groovy beats, intricate fills and polyrythms, but all of this with a punk spirit mandatory to Benighted Brutal Death Metal/Grindcore spirit!

Anyway, I’ve found in these new songs some of the best guitars riffs I ever had to drum on, and I hope you will like them as much as I do, not to mention the unique vocals of our dear Julien. Let’s wish him a good recovery!”

The recovery he mentioned refers to the band’s vocalist Julien Truchan, who tested positive for the Coronavirus this week after contracting it during volunteer work at a medical facility. The band said of that on April 07th:

“…This morning we got the sad news that our vocalist Julien Truchan has been tested positive for the COVID-19 virus. Unfortunately he contracted the virus during his volunteer work in a Covid medical department. We wish him strength and good recovery !”
