Quebec City’s UPON YOUR GRAVE Rise To New Heights With “Transcend” Off “Gold & Decay”

Spread the metal:

Hailing from Quebec City, Canada, Upon Your Grave are a solid melodic death metal outfit that has a savage new EP coming out this year and a second music video to compliment it. This new video is a lyric video for the song “Transcend”, the final song on the album that rounds out five tracks, which offers a new perspective on the band that has been around since 2009. Vocalist Jordan Jolicoeur is a huge sci-fi geek and that lends to a lot of the lyrical themes on the EP, exemplified on the single. He explains in his own words:

“Transcend talks about a dystopian future where we put our bodies on warranty with cybernetic enhancements and augmented brains. Searching for a way to ascend with technology and bring the next step in evolution. Heavily inspired by Ghost in the Shell and cyberpunk elements, this one might interest listeners who like these aesthetics or know them. It’s a big song that begins with a slap in the face, brutal riffs, and relentless drumming. bringing you in deep waters all along until it lets you breathe with a shredding solo. we really like this one as it is an experience to play it as a band.”

In Upon Your Grave, all the songs are written by guitarist Sim Diamond, who took part in Sam Dunn’s Shredders of Metal season 1 (video) and made it all the way to the semi-finals in Toronto. He was joined by Jolicoeur and guitarist Alex Bussieres and then Sebastien Gagné on drums and Yan Pelletier on bass, two good friends from the local band Scars Of Disgrace, the band had found their perfect lineup to go forward.

Upon Your Grave delivers exactly what metalheads want from a death metal band – exciting fast riffs; steady, thundering drums, well-written lyrics, and an ambiance that is conducive to headbanging, and moshing. After giving this record a spin or two, people are going to be into it and will be demanding more. They are recommended for fans of The Black Dahlia Murder, The Absence, and Decapitated.
