Works on The Future Belongs To The Mad took place over the course of nine months, from December 2022 until August 2023, and was written, produced and performed by the mastermind Benjamin Blank. Containing twelve tracks of industrial metal, IDW and electronic cyberpunk inspired soundscapes, “The Future Belongs To The Mad” is a sprawling, epic, multi genre soundtrack to our own oblivion.
Benjamin Blank stated about the new album:
“TFBTTM was written during possibly the most difficult period I’ve ever had to get through – a period I’m not actually done dealing with – and one from which I now fear I shall never depart.
This album is an expression of my own inability to find meaning or purpose in life. And the utter disdain and emotional distraught that comes from the accumulation of living like that year, after year, after year. With this album I’ve managed to turn something that is for all intents and purposes destroying me, and created what is without any doubt in my mind, the greatest accomplishment of my life.“
