SoulBeast - Betrayed

Metal, Classic Metal, Hard Rock
OH, United States

Overall Impression:
SoulBeast comes out swinging with their intensely driven and definitively metallic song Betrayed.  With a fast and crunchy sound well informed by the great metal acts of yesteryear, the band delivers a satisfyingly heavy reflection on the sensation of misplaced faith - and does so with skill and passion. Betrayed's lyrics run the gamut of self-consuming emotional turmoil that comes with treachery, and even goes so far as to address the solution to such self-consumption.  Forgive the betrayer for your own sake, but never let yourself forget what they've done.

Strongest Point(s):
SoulBeast has really cohesive sound!  Betrayed's mix is really solid and fully highlights the individual pieces of the band's overall sound - and I'm really digging every bit of it.  The lead vocals are really great for this style, and I love the skill of the guitar solo at 3:09 - intensely exciting performance, and exactly what the song calls for.  Also, great lyrics!  It's not often you hear a song of this style and energy that dwells in the negative space as well as the constructive.  Awesome work!

Target Audience Appeal:
Fans of classic metal will love this sound, and anyone craving something with a familiar tone but a new edge will find plenty to unpack with SoulBeast.  Betrayed is an anthem of awareness - engaging in the darkness that accompanies infidelity while still encouraging listeners to seek self-assurance; a unique message with a really solid delivery.  I look forward to hearing more!

Artist target suggestions:
Skid Row, Warrant, Poison, Judas Priest, Quiet Riot, Def Leppard, Ted Nugent, Sammy Hagar, Tesla, Damn Yankees, Bullett Boys
