about

In May of 1998, Benümb released their first full-length, 'Soul Of The Martyr,' which delivers 38 atomic clouts of ferocious hardcore/grind in the California tradition. Unveiling caustic new material alongside the Gear... recordings and material from the APARTMENT 213 and the AGORAPHOBIC NOSEBLEED splits, 'Soul...' also contains Benümb's full live performance from the 'Fiesta Comes Alive!' recording. 'Soul Of The Martyr' is fueled by anger, influenced by metal, and destined for cult status! Songs such as the shocking "Agony 1" (:18) and the oh-so-sudden "Agony 2" (:05) show the grinding ferocity of the band, while tracks like "Stood Up" and "Sold Out" and "Deprivation" reveal an overwhelming other side. The inner-sleeve of the release shows Benümb's respect and dedication to the underground scene that they thrived in as the band listed the contact information to 101 of their favorite bands. 'Soul Of The Martyr' met to a rousing response, and the band promoted the release by completing several mini-tours of the U.S., and appeared at every major U.S. heavy music festival in the two years that followed, including the 1998 and 1999 Milwaukee Metalfests and the 1998 and 1999 March Metal Meltdowns.
