Benumb where a band from California that played a very brutal form of power violence/crust and grindcore and this is a review of their 1998 album "Soul Of The Martyr" which was released by Relapse Records.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with alot of brutal sounding blast beats being thrown into the music, while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars and at times they have a very powerful sound to them.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffs that combine power violence, crust and grindcore together mixed in with alot of noisy distortion and there are no guitar solos or leads present on this recording.
Vocals are a mixture of grindcore style growls and high pitched screams mixed in with some spoken word parts and samples, while the lyrics cover hateful themes, as for the production it has a very heavy and powerful sound to it.
In my opinion Benumb where a very great sounding power violence/crust/grindcore band and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out this band. RECEMMONDED TRACKS INCLUDE "No Regret" "Stood Up And Sold Out" "No Hope" and "Lost Perception". RECEMMONDED BUY.
