ABOUT THE BAND
UPON A BURNING BODY
On a mission to prove that everything, even metal, is bigger in Texas, San Antonio-based quintet Upon A Burning Body batter crowds with their driving brand of mosh-ready deathcore. Delivering plenty of massive riffs, punishing breakdowns, and hardcore-style gang choruses, the group has a sound that's surprisingly infectious in what is typically a highly malevolent, take-no-prisoners genre. The band signed on with Sumerian Records, and in 2010 released its debut album, The World Is Ours, on the influential metal label. Upon a Burning Body followed up with their sophomore effort, Red. White. Green., in 2012. The hard-charging, Will Putney-produced The World Is My Enemy Now dropped in 2014, followed in 2016 by Straight From The Barrio, which featured the blistering single "Til the Break of Dawn."
Now with Seek & Strike, the band strives forward delivering their most honest and crushing metal experience yet, Southern Hostility. No gimmicks, no hard sell, just straight up Texas style, American, metal.
