UPON STONE “Where Wild Sorrows Grow” Out Now!

Posted by admin on Oct.15, 2021

We’re insanely excited to announce the surprise-release of Where Wild Sorrows Grow, the debut EP from newly formed California metal collective, UPON STONE, the band uniting members of Dead Heat, Vamachara, Hands Of God, Vaelmyst, and more.

UPON STONE was envisioned and formed in the Spring of 2021 through its members’ shared influence of 1990s Scandinavian melodic death metal. The goal of the band’s first material, embodied in their Where Wild Sorrows Grow debut EP, was to balance visceral death metal energy with enveloping atmosphere and dark melody, creating a sound both rooted in melodic death metal tradition, and expansive new sounds that pay tribute to while expanding upon the legendary Gothenburg sound, citing the early masterworks of At The Gates, In Flames, and Dissection as its primary influences.

In May of 2021, UPON STONE joined Taylor Young at his The Pit Recording Studio in Van Nuys (Nails, God’s Hate) where they recorded their four-song Where Wild Sorrows Grow, the record completed with cover art by Dominic Pabon and photography by Josh Vega.
