Black Metal Daily streams new track of black metal/punk marauders BEDNJA

Bednja have done extremely well for their debut, blending various genres in a way that things remain unpredictable and yet hard-hitting where it needs to be. The result is quite frankly refreshing. Black Metal Daily premiered one of their tracks HERE and had this to say about it –

“a seamless, compelling blend of negative hardcore and modern, bleakly-melodic black metal strains; cleanly produced with a roared multi-throat vocal attack and incorporating everything from introspective post-black ambience to riotous D-beat sections”

– “delivers a gut punch” – Angry Metal Guy ((US) 3.5/5

– “an experience you’re not going to easily forget” – Captured Howls (US) 5/5

– “tremendously good” – No Clean Singing (US)

– “an album that’s sure to make a lasting impact” – Black Metal Daily (US)

– “it’s sick!” – Cvlt Nation (US)

– “this is the perfect introduction” – Deaf Sparrow (US) 4.4/5

– “powerful and innovative” – Heavy Music HQ (US) 4/5

– “a thoroughly enjoyable listen” – Ramzine (UK) 4/5

– “brilliant” – Metal Utopia (US) 8/10

– “loads of excellence packed into these six tracks” – Head-Banger Reviews (US)

– “impressive” – Musik Reviews (Germany) 11/15

– “definitely worth it” – VM Underground (Netherlands)

– “very powerful” – Occult Black Metal Zine (US) 8/10

– “truly intense” – Dargedik (Peru)

From Croatia, Bednja are on to something special. Eschewing the stale black metal template, they have taken elements from other genres such as hardcore to concoct an electrifying blend that harnesses the best qualities of each, topped off with an atmospheric touch. The result is not only largely unpredictable but also energetic, with soothing passages interspersing the violently rampaging parts. One word description for Bednja‘s music would be fascinating but that would hardly sum up the music that is contained on their debut full length. It’s an album that you will keep coming back to for more, simply because it’s unparalleled in its expression and the way it’s stringed together without seeming contrived. Rarely has this blend of black metal and hardcore made this much sense, embracing the atmospheric and spontaneous side of things while being at it too.
