So Hideous is a promising new metal act ready to make waves with their new album, Laurestine, which drops in less than a month. Composed of a quartet of Puerto Rican dudes born and raised in the Bronx and Queens — guitarist and composer Brandon Cruz, bassist and vocalist Chris Cruz, guitarist Etienne Vazquez and  Danny Moncada on drums — the hardcore outfit churns out metal heavily influenced by the sound of film scores. Following their debut 2013 self-release Last Poem/First Light, So Hideous is currently awaiting the release of the second full-length album, Laurestine, which revolves around a man’s post-mortem experience and what goes through his brain during its final seven minutes of activity.

Today, Mass Appeal premieres So Hideous’ new track “Relinquish,” which clearly depicts the band as both scenic and timely with progression. The song takes a slow climb through orchestrated strings over picnicking drums and eventually turns toward a massive plunge into breaking vocals and a barrage of fast guitars during the song’s halfway mark. The live 30-piece orchestra featured on the track allows So Hideous to standout in the atmospheric bliss.

Listen to the track below and watch for Laurestine, produced entirely by Dean Baltulonis (Sick of It All, Agnostic Front, Breakdown), out October 16 via Prosthetic Records.
