History - The Suffering of Benighted
In September 2000 Benighted and
Phoenix came up with an idea to create an alternative two-man-metal-band.
It all started when Benighted was playing a couple of
riffs to Phoenix who said they sounded much like Dimmu or something
thereabout, Phoenix threw an idea of creating a bm-band (He wasn't really
serious at the time), but the idea finally saw the daylight under hard
pressure of Benighted.
The name came when Benighted had a terrible hangover,
and Phoenix was torturing him with bad jokes. Benighted complained how
he is was in "kärsimys" ("suffering" in English),
Phoenix asked if it was a MAXIMUS-kärsimys, and hey, there it was!
Later on, Moonwing joined to play bass on the second
demo, which still haven't been recorded, except for the song "Bright
light", which was the only song to choose for the new video, as
it's sonic quality was much better than the old ones.
Well nothing last's forever, and so it was time to change
the name, at November 2003 the name was changed to Kärsimys. The
band's been on a brake for a long while, but I promise you, we'll be
back, with new and improved arsenal of suffering METAL.
