Today, I had the privilege of reviewing "Untamed" by alt-rock band THE FINITE BEINGS - an immersive and intense sonic journey that encompasses the human condition and the battles of the mind and spirit. With its roots firmly in the Christian rock genre, the song presents a dark yet hopeful perspective on life, faith, and struggle.
The track opens with a deep, distorted guitar riff that is instantly reminiscent of the styles of bands like Atreyu and Thrice. This musical motif sets the stage for a narrative that is as gritty as it is introspective. The entrance of the rest of the band is an act of sheer force, an intensity that rivals the aggression of a storm at sea. This aggressive beginning immediately captures your attention, as the powerful drumming and rich instrumentation feel like a spiritual awakening of sorts.
