With their last two single releases, “Candyland” and “Rain,” Unprocessed garnered status as an unmissable independent act far beyond the confines of the metal scene.
With their genre-bending, futuristic hybrid blend of thrilling, alternative metal, darkly atmospheric electronica, and catchy pop hooks, the German quartet is one of the most exciting acts to emerge from the European alternative scene.
Today, Unprocessed share the new song “Portrait,” and it’s the latest taste from their upcoming album.
“With ‘Portrait,’ I imagined myself putting on a mask of enthusiasm and hiding from my problems,” says frontman and guitarist Fernandes. “Lyrically, the song tells a tale of arrogance and a twisted self-image — a king who wants to be perceived as perfect, and therefore tries to hide his obvious flaws from himself. The portrait he has made of himself shows him as he really is, and confronts him with his true face.”
