Highly infectious stoner metal with an easy accessible twist…This is some highly supreme beef and extremely tasty!…Stoner Hive
(Beef Supreme) throws into the mix some doom, classic metal, sludgy guitar riffs, some heavy drums and let’s not forget the rather cool melodic vocals from leading lady Niki BelGrande…this is rather good, some great musicianship here…I myself look forward to hearing more…Ravenheart Music
Niki opens her mouth and spews forth a string of sounds which lie somewhere between classic metal and modern rock…Either the vocals or the instruments on this album would be enough for me to give Beef Supreme a passing grade; combined they vibrate in my blood in a way that, when the music stops, makes me itch for more…We Love Metal
Strong on all fronts…no frills, no bullshit hard rock with spit as well as shine. Keep an eye out for these guys, cos they won’t be slumming in the underground much longer . . .Born Again Nihilist
This ain’t no kiddie music either, it’s for the aficionado of the dark and varied rooms of Rock and Roll and more specifically metal. Beef Supreme is badass!!!…Mustard Relics
Groove-ridden stoner of the most infectious kind. Bouncy riffs that conjure up AC/DC doing Monster Magnet songs…leave(s) you wanting more…Black Insect Laughter
Stoner rock band Beef Supreme hails from the southwest United States. Drawing from influences such as Black Sabbath, Electric Wizard, Truckfighters, The Sword, Queens of the Stone Age and Fireball Ministry, Beef Supreme fuses retro-metal with desert rock. Combining sludgy guitar riffs and heavy drums with melodic vocals and smart songwriting sensibilities, Beef Supreme has crafted a sound that is unique among metal bands today.
However, what really sets Beef Supreme apart from the teeming masses is something not normally associated with stoner metal: their marketing plan. Playing together since 2007, guitarist and vocalist Niki BelGrande, drummer Eric B, and bassist Kevin W are veterans of various local metal scenes and bands. “The standard model for rock bands, what they tell you to do, is play out locally and build a following, and then grow from there,” explains BelGrande. “That’s bulls***, that doesn’t work anymore. Local scenes are a racket, and regional touring is fun, but it’s completely unsustainable from a business point of view.” The future, she says, is the internet. Beef Supreme offers free downloads of all of their music, sells merchandise online, makes use of social media to connect with their fans, and relies on online buzz for promotion.
Their self-titled debut EP, released in August, 2012, received praise from critics and from fans. Offered as a free download, internet word-of-mouth promotion was strong enough to get it featured on blogs and websites all over the world.
Beef Supreme’s last recording, “Royal Bitch”, was released on June 4th, 2013. They are currently at work on their third EP, due out in mid-2016.
