The impetuous nature of Singapore’s Deathpunk cohort OFFSET is further manifested on their debut MLP “Bent Benevolence”, four tracks of discordant HM-2 lacerations in under ten minutes.
Taking on a spontaneous live recording approach in the studio, the underlying nuance of “Bent Benevolence” is doused with a sense of urgency; resulting in a more cacophonous and suffocating sentiment with credible influences of Motorcharged Punk, Dark Hardcore and Death Metal.
Recorded and mixed at TNT Studio (Wormrot, WTN, Marijannah, Lubricant, etc) by engineering mogul Ah Boy and mastering duties handled by Jack Control at Enormous Door Mastering, USA (Darkthrone, Final Conflict, Trap Them, Aura Noir, etc). Featuring the extremely bizarre yet captivating cover artwork of cult Japanese Ero Guro manga artist Shintaro Kago and vinyl layout by Heresie Design Studio (Ensnared, Teitanblood, Blut Aus Nord, etc).
Vinyl version with B-side etching available in the following color variants:
- 100 copies in Baby Blue vinyl
- 100 copies in Hot Pink vinyl
- 300 copies in Black vinyl

The album description mentions an “emotional apex.” That’s really the difference between Stare and the band’s previous albums. Ulcerate was always supremely technically proficient. I just didn’t care all that much. Their growth has come from making music you will feel. Metallurgical Fire
