Italian death grinders CRISIS BENOIT will release their debut album “El Culto De La Muerte” on June 10th 2022 via Slaughterhouse Records.
CRISIS BENOIT have long been known in the Italian underground scene for their furious mix of punk, grindcore and old school death-black metal, combined with a lyrical concept closely linked to the world of wrestling. The new opus “El Culto De La Muerte”, recorded and produced by Carlo Altobelli at the Toxic Basement Studio and graced by a cover by Ester Cardella, is undoubtedly the most complete and belligerent record of the young Italian act. This first full-length embraces the band’s extreme metal influences more frequently, without forgetting their infamous punk attitude.
