Staff review by
Baz Anderson

Benighted have magnificently developed over the last few years and have carved a niche of ultra brutal death metal mixed with solid slabs of groove and a tang of grindcore. Indeed when "Insane Cephalic Production" started to raise eyebrows, no one could have expected to have had them slapped off their faces with such extremity as "Identisick" provided and now just one year later the ambitious "Icon" does not see these French maniacs let up one bit.

Rating: 8 Much worse than the great Identisick. i dont know why but this album sounded boring to me. i singled out only Invoxhate and Smile Then Bleed as the best songs. i think that somethings wrong with the production here... it makes the album sound really generic.
