Beef Supreme: Royal Bitch EP

Heavy/Stoner Rock/Metal
4.0/5.0

The self-described stoner metal band Beef Supreme drops their second EP, Royal Bitch, via digital download, in just a few weeks. The band is a power trio of sorts, with a female lead vocalist, Niki BelGrande, at the forefront.

Beef Supreme: where's the beef?

This short EP of four songs could be described in a variety of ways. The foundation of the Beef Supreme sound is essentially heavy rock, which makes it, well, 'beefy.' It's d-tuned and lumbering at times to be stoner rock as well. In both BelGrande's vocal and guitar style you get some trippy psychedelic rock as well. Sometimes the timbre of her voice reminds of a cross between Pat Benatar and Faith Hill. Wrap your head around that weirdness. The rhythm section is propelled, most significantly, by Macho Grande's (another 'beefy' name and fellow) bass lines, with Lou Chalupa's straight forward, but sometimes hollow sounding, drums backing him up. All four songs, then, are right on target when you consider the aforementioned fundamental ingredients. So if you like your heavy metal with significant sides of stoner and psychedelic rock, you'll dig the deep grooves of Beef Supreme's Royal Bitch EP. But it's also time for them to up the ante and offer a full-length album.
