Upon Stone "Where Wild Sorrows Grow"


Established by friends heavily involved in the rich Southern California metal/hardcore underground, 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 "Where Wild Sorrows Grow," 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, CA, (Nails, God's Hate) where they recorded their four-song EP, the record completed with cover art by Dominic Pabon and photography by Josh Vega. 12"ep includes digital download and a silkscreened B-side.
