Dubstep demon Benga drops his new single “Open Your Eyes“, complete with a visual that’s about as ghoulish as it gets.
After hearing his bouncy “We’re Coming Out” single a couple of weeks back, this is a return to the familiar stomp of Benga’s original sound. Replete with shouts of “Hey” that wouldn’t sound out of place on a record by The Prodigy, not to mention klaxon-style synths and oppressive bass, it’s one for those who like their dance tracks dark and heavy. Yet none of these elements match the effect of the spooky choral build-up in the middle of the track- a perfect match for the video clip- in which Orc-like creatures discover dubstep and rage like there’s no tomorrow. Not for small children.
Benga’s next album Chapter II drops February 25th 2013. Watch the video below and buy “Open Your Eyes” here.
