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."
