ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Benign is a product of indecision. His love for hardcore punk, cheezy boybands and gripping soloists like J Mascis and Louis Armstrong shines
through this melting pot of music. You will never know if you're ears are going to be ripped apart by a raw grinding guitar, or a
harmonizing vocal melody will make you sink into your own deep thoughts. He will not tell you what to think. He will express what he doesn't know for sure.
if he can't lyrically explain what happens in his pear shaped mind, the intricate composition of emotional instrumentals might get it done. Winding
tricky wordplay with original beats that kick like Chuck Norris perfectly demonstrates that what you are hearing isn't
original. However, his strange lyrics aren't radio friendly in a way that will get your mind turning about today's
standards in lyricism. Brandon Tennison doesn't make perfect music. It's not easy listening. It's not Hardcore. It's...
Benign.

Benign has played with everything from hardcore death metal bands to aspiring gangster rappers, and always has managed to leave the crowd confused but accepting. Being labeled as virtually every genre (Including but not limited to, Dub-step, beastie boys, skatecore, etc.) he has never considered himself to be anything similar. He actually prefers singing, but his rap skills shine at the beginning and ending of his debut album Consciencness -raising. Together with Vizzie Inc. He is now undergoing the recording of the first group album due in December. As for future endeavors he doesn't know if he wants to settle into his own style or keep mix matching genres until one fits, but either way it won't sound like anything you've ever heard.
