Upon A Burning Body

Some say it's not who did it first, but who does it the best. Sumerian Records' newest recruits in Upon a Burning Body aren't breaking ground, they're shaking the ground.

Hailing from San Antonio, Texas, the five piece metal/hardcore hybrid juggernaut has been turning heads in the underground DIY circuit for years now. Paying their dues as a hardworking independent band have definitely paid off. They were hand-picked to be the special guests for all of Texas on the Thrash and Burn 2009 Tour w/ DevilDriver, Emmure, Despised Icon & Veil of Maya and now 2010 has the band poised to explode.

With a clear vision for their identity and an immeasurable level of determination, Upon a Burning Body are now touring full time throughout North America spreading their message of dedication, self-belief and relentless competitive greatness. Sumerian founder Ash Avildsen commented "Upon a Burning Body frontman Danny Leal has one of the most distinguishable and decipherable voices I have heard in years. With the perfect soundtrack of riffs and beats backing him and an explosive live show, there is no question what the very near future will hold for this band."

Carrying an infectious theme to their new record, the band is drawing in listeners all over the world through the use of creative lyrics portraying the characters of Al Pacino played in timeless films such as The Devil's Advocate, Donnie Brasco, The Godfather and more.

Rhythmic, Groove, Technical, Brutal, Captivating, Face Melting are all adjectives that do not even come close to touching the tip of the iceberg when it comes to describing the sound, image and movement exploding right now out of Southern California. The source of this decibel shattering, mind-numbing, captivating phenomenon? Los Angeles metal outfit, VOLUMES.

VOLUMES are a collection of five young musicians coming from a wide array of musical backgrounds, ranging from jazz, classical, post-rock to rap and of course metal. VOLUMES eclectic tastes blend together to forge a creative bond between several types of genres that are worlds apart. The combination of their efforts results in fusions between intricate patterns, melodies, and progressive.. yet-not-to-be-overlooked-aggressive, straight to the point, metal. This particular blend of musical styles strives to find a balance between chaos and tranquility. Standing out in their genre is the fact that VOLUMES have two lead-vocalists who utilize their different ranges to create a layered, charismatic volatile sound which leave all listeners begging for more.

Having just signed on with MEDIASKARE RECORDS & OUTERLOOP MANAGEMENT, VOLUMES quickly released their unforgettable fan favorite EP titled: 'The Concept Of Dreaming'. Wasting no time, VOLUMES immediately begin work on their currently entitled debut full length "VIA" that hit #1 on iTunes Metal the first day. With their whole career starting to unfold, and the world ahead of them VOLUMES are not a band you want to overlook.. be forewarned.

The White Noise


In todays watered down Americanized depictions of Christ and His Gospel, there have been a lot of misconceptions concerning what exactly worship even is. Worship, simply put, is your heart cry that emerges out when you are in the presence of God. Your response and your connection is worship. It is not a song. It is not even a sound.

So what makes us a worship band? And an aggressive one at that?

We are a band riddled with troubles and addictions. We are haunted by emotional and mental anchors. Simply put, we are not perfect. Nor are we close to being worthy of being associated with Christ and His love.

So when a band makes the statement of being a "Christian" or a "Worship" band such as us, we are instantaneously labeled hypocrites.

Hypocrisy is a mirror that humanity wakes up every morning and stares into.

Victory over our sin is not given by abiding by social and cultural religious law in hopes of reaping in an eternal reward. Not even close. Victory over sin is the mercy of God. Through Christ, our losses and flaws become gains and wisdom.

This is where our story begins.

The songs that come out of our hands and minds are not the prettiest. They aren't the most positive. These are our heart cries in times of conviction. They are poured out from our imperfections, our doubts, our angers and our fears. Our outlet is in song; Honest and abrasive song.

From our hearts, to your ears.

This is our worship. Aggressive worship.
