Swedish masked marauders, Supreme Unbeing, have wasted no time at all as they drop haunting new single ‘Hide The Beast’ hot off the heels of previous banger ‘Face of Evil’.
Marking the second in a line of releases to precede the band’s sophomore LP ‘Enduring Physicality’, ‘Hide The Beast’ packs their signature riff-based savagery and anthemic hooks whilst challenging listeners to confront the two sides of human nature; the beast and the victim. It’s a chillingly introspective backdrop for the mayhem of chops and chugs, one that vocalist Zac Red fulfills perfectly with an anguished and tormented deliveries.
Speaking of the song’s concept himself, Zac notes: “We all have a beast inside of us which we are trying, oh, so hard to tame, but in the end we cannot – as the song goes – hide the beast. We can only find inner peace, and build a solid relationship with ourselves, when we understand, and trust, our inner beast in the same way that we understand, and trust, the person that others believe that they see when they see you.”
Alike their last dosage of destruction, ‘Face of Evil’, the track is bolstered by a high-production music video – bringing the track’s imagery of an inner demon to another plane of existence much alike the band’s own transformation from an animated sphere into the 3D reality. Symphonic metal outfit Eleine’s vocalist Madeleine Liljestam also provides the band’s premiere feature and does so with a refined, yet spine-tingling, elegance; it’s yet another aspect to flesh out Supreme Unbeing’s ever-growing world.
The track itself is, unsurprisingly fantastic, reaching the levels of vigour and vitriol of the genre’s legends like Metallica and Megadeth whilst conveying their signature sense of mystery not unlike Ghost and Sleep Token. Reinforced, of course, by robust songwriting and clockwork performances from the entire brigade – ‘Hide The Beast’ is yet another work of wonder from one of metal’s most promising names.
