Superunknown

Today, HM is proud to premiere the newest music video for “Leap of Faith” from Superunknown. The Hyderabad, India-based band has previous released a two-track EP, Bite the Bullet, before this single.

We spoke with vocalist Reuben Isaac about the track.

“The song ‘Leap of Faith’ is a reflection on a conversation piece with an atheist from a first-person perspective. This reflection is on an atheist trying to convince the person about the fact that God does not exist. … This person does finally come to find the positives that come out of having faith in the creator.”

Musically, Superunknown has worked towards a sound that is heavily influenced by grunge music as a medium for getting their message across.

You can find Superunknown on Bandcamp, Instagram, and Facebook.

HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
