There isn't a band in Singapore quite like Supersect right now.
Whether or not you can vibe with their sense of humour, their irreverent brand of heavy metal — a streamlined cross-junction of rap metal and catchy thrash metal — is unlike anything Singapore has seen in a while.
Their tongue-in-cheek nihilism is masked by kung fu-inspired costumes and off-kilter musical sections. They've named their debut album Greatest Hits, and their song 'Genocide Extermination' — betraying its sinister title — features a snappy jazzy breakdown which ends with the band proclaiming "Fuck jazz!"
Everything just points to the fact that the band aren't taking themselves seriously, but that doesn't detract from their technical skills and concise songwriting — they're really good with their instruments. And, at their recent album launch at The Substation, they were able to marry their technical skills with a fun and theatrical show that culminated with covers of songs by Rage Against The Machine and... Phua Chu Kang.
Peep at our photo gallery of the show below.
