If the spectacle of being able to achieve some 402 BPM in song isn't enough to pique your interest, it should be prefaced that Benighted's second single from their pending Ekbom LP via Season of Mist a thunderous assertion of musical madness even aside from the unbelievable speed. Delivering the second single from the presentation, the French death metal outfit follow the previously previewed, no less brutal "Scars" with an absolute crusher in "Nothing Left to Fear" that is as mind-boggling as it is menacing. 

At it's peak, the track climbs to 402 beats per minute - a feat that underscores not only the band's technical ability, but their unapologetic commitment to musical savagery. Enlisting additional firepower with the addition of Oli Aleron of tech death practitioners Archspire, the second offensive from the forth coming full length, Ekbom is pummeling punishment in peak form. 


Speaking on the single and the union of two relentless vocalists, the band commented, "'Nothing Left to Fear' features our brother and incredible vocalist Oli from Archspire", says Benighted. "This is the fastest track we've ever written. It starts off at 402 bpm! The combination of Julien and Oli's vocals makes it soooo brutal! We hope you like this new song and share it to the maximum. Enjoy!"

Along with the arrival of Ekbom on Season of Mist, Benighted is set to their HellFest Warm-Up Tour throughout their home of France next month.
