Following the release of November 2023’s All Fine / eniF llA (Deluxe Edition), Milan-based Stain The Canvas has just unleashed their raucous cover of “Unholy,” originally performed by Sam Smith and Kim Petras.

The modern heavy rock quintet transformed the Billboard chart-topping hit with haunting whispers, urgent screams, a thrilling breakdown, and a hardcore conclusion. Check out the unique reworking of “Unholy” below.

“Our version of ‘Unholy ‘has a complete[ly] different meaning from the original one: it’s a way much darker song about a psychopath who starts fantasizing about an affair between him and a married man he met, thinking to seduce him in order to torture him to death for his own sadistic pleasure,” the band shares of the new cover.

Sharing more of their most recent record, Stain The Canvas noted that they wanted to explore new sonics on beloved tracks. “We think these three new songs are a bit different from what you heard previously, but they still have those vibes,” the band says. “Also, the lyrics fit good with what we talked about on ‘All Fine / eniF llA.’ They’re pretty sad or pessimistic, and sometimes even more critical.” Says the band regarding the forthcoming record.”
