Upon Your Grave
Established in the Quebec Metal scene since 2009 and hailing from Lévis, Upon Your Grave finally made its return in 2022. It was on the eve of the band’s tenth anniversary that Sim Diamond, Alex Bussières, and Jordan Jolicoeur reunited, taking advantage of the time afforded by the pandemic to begin writing a new album.
This highly anticipated creation marks the first release since their self-titled album in 2013. The new chapter also sees the arrival of two new musicians, drummer Sébastien Gagné and bassist Yan Pelletier, both close friends and former members of the group Scars Of Disgrace. Supported by a successful crowdfunding campaign, the album’s recording, under the guidance of Chris Donaldson from the band Cryptopsy, allows fans to savor the blend of melodic richness with the robustness of Death Metal.
Focusing on electrifying performances, powerful vocals, and catchy guitar riffs, this new lineup, with over 150 shows under their belt, is determined to return to the stage and win the hearts of a new generation devoted to extreme music. True to their recent performances alongside international artists such as Vital Remains, Battlecross, Skeletonwitch, Blind Witness, and Cryptopsy, their work will once again be on par with the best scenes of today’s and tomorrow’s Metal.
Thus, in a new era of innovation and enriching collaborations, Upon Your Grave unveiled their new EP titled “Gold & Decay” on October 7, 2022. The EP generated considerable buzz on social media and received praise from critics within the genre. The EP earned a spot alongside Lamb of God in the October edition of Metal Hammer magazine, featured on Slipknot’s Knotfest playlist, and received numerous positive reviews from webzines around the globe.
With the excitement generated by the new material, the band embarked on a series of shows for 2022-2023 to expand their fan base and also started composing a new album, aiming to deliver a powerful injection of Metal that will resonate with their audience.
