erich102294 Many bands don’t succeed in creating one perfect album that sets them apart from the other great bands out there, but Upon a Burning Body has done it! This album is completely and utterly perfect! Keep it up gentlemen you have won me over with this one! Favorite track: Burn.

William Owens I'm loving this new direction. The seething, gut-punching metal is really doing it for me.

Reminds me of when Throwdown exchanged their hardcore sound for a more Pantera-core vibe, which is not a bad thing. The mix of Pantera, Lamb of God, and Hatebreed does wonders for a band I haven't paid attention to since 2010.

Favorite track: All Pride No Pain.

about

UPON A BURNING BODY return with a vicious new slab of brutality, Southern Hostility, which is out June 7th on Seek and Strike. The album’s first single, “King of Diamonds,” is a face-melter and its official music video, directed by Scott Hansen (Motionless In White, Sevendust), can be viewed now exclusively at the link below. The band will do a series of TX area headlining, record release shows June 6-8th

Ruben (guitars) states: “We simply felt it was time for a change. This new album is definitely a huge statement for us. It was time to reinvent ourselves and get back to our roots - pure heavy fucking metal! The energy of this album takes us back to our first two, but with much more maturity.


"We worked for two months with Christopher Mora (producer) and our younger brother, Thomas Alvarez (co-producer). They are both amazing song writers and were able to help us create fresh and infectious ideas. The four of us worked together to create a fresh, raw and energetic sound. We took influences from some of the greatest metal bands of all-time (Pantera, Metallica, etc), in order to fill a void that many people are craving and need. Once we finished tracking and putting the final touches we realized we created an album that would change everything for us. This is what everyone has been waiting for: no gimmicks and just straight in your face metal!”

Track Name: Southern Hostility
Fuck hospitality
This is southern hostility.
Track Name: King of Diamonds
No on gets left behind

It’s fucking no mans land

So watch what you say

Choke on the violence you’re fed

No words are spoken no room for debate

Just run straight through the ones that you hate

Power strength and virtue

Failure won’t deter you

We will never surrender

Here on the front line it’s a war

Never forget what your fighting for

No one gets left behind

Power strength and virtue

Failure won’t deter you

We will never surrender

Here on the front line it’s a war

Never forget what your fighting for

Never surrender

We are all born for battle

Let power reign

Here on the front line it’s a war

Never forget who you’re fighting for.
Track Name: All Pride No Pain
I can be the war

You can be the victim

I can be the sum of all your deepest fears

You will either follow close or step aside

In our sites you can not hide

You know the less you take the more you’ll be to leave behind a legacy

And I feel alive

I won’t give up on you

Not yet no

Fear none show Strength

I won’t give up on you

Your life your name

All pride no pain

I feel alive

Fear none show Strength

I won’t give up on you

Your life your name

All pride no pain.
Track Name: From Darkness
Look into their eyes if you’re gonna dig the knife can you do it

You failed at life and haven’t even fucking gone through it

Look into their eyes

Dig the knife can you do it

When my sites on you your fucked

Where I’m from you better prey to god

I come from a darkness you’ll never know

And I smell the fear inside your soul

Fuck sake what you want me to say

Run I won’t stand in your way

Bite your saviors hand you’ll never understand

Look into their eyes

Try to find a light can you do it

When my sites on you your fucked

Where I’m from you better prey to god

I come from a darkness you’ll never know

And I smell the fear inside your soul

You don’t know what it’s like to live in fear

What you think you know is a fucking lie

I come from a darkness you’ll never know

And I smell the fear inside your soul.
Track Name: The Champ Is Coming
When the light is near how far will you crawl

When the weight bears down will you rise or fall

Every avenue will lead you to pain

And when you hear the roar of the crowd you’ll know my name

Dig to where demands come from

Run when you find um

Dig to where demons come from run mother fucker cause you found um

You better start running

The storm is coming

You better start running

The champ is coming

Talk is cheap so tell me what’s it gonna be

There’s only one way to the top and that’s through me

Show me what you got cause I’m never gonna stop when I’m gunnin for you

What you gonna do when the bell rings and they yell and new

You better start running

The storm is coming

You better start running

The champ is coming

You better start running

Because a storm is coming

You better start running

The champ is coming for you

Dig to where demands come from

Run when you find um

Dig to where demons come from run mother fucker cause you found um

You better start running

The storm is coming

You better start running

The champ is coming

You better start running

Because a storm is coming

You better start running

The champ is coming for you
Track Name: Burn
I walk alone

Nothing came easy

My mother made me but these streets they raised me

Fear all around

Violent surrounding

Kicked while I’m down but you still won’t break me

The fear the love the pain the shame

Burn it all ignite the flame

The fear the love the pain the shame

Let the fire burn it all away

Burn it all way

We lit the match

Struggle filed the flame

Our fight out strength is what made the change

Keep your head up

Be who you wanna be but just remember respect is everything

The fear the love the pain the shame

Burn it all ignite the flame

The fear the love the pain the shame

Let the fire burn it all away

Burn it all way

When the ashes block out the sun we are reborn

Never fear the fire

Take all your fear love pain and shame

And let the fire burn it all away

Burn it all away.
Track Name: Reinventing Hatred
We walk amongst demons

Hell on earth we welcome the purge

Save our sinful lives

Wash and purify

Pull the hell from inside lost souls

Pain suffering we lost control

Point your finger in ever direction

False mirrors hide your reflection

Reinventing hatred

A new heartless nation

Reinventing hatred

The darkened mind

The callus heart

a parasitic will enough to make you feel chaos in the abyss of ignorance

can we tame the roar of descendants

The line has been drawn

Who’s side are you on when we are reinventing hatred

A new heartless nation

Reinventing hatred

Swinging from the hangman’s knot

Are you the martyr

Or the one who rots

The line has been drawn

Who’s side are you on when we are reinventing hatred

A new heartless nation
Track Name: Never Alone
Reaching for a way out of inside your mind

Your running for your life

You’re in over your head

Such a familiar feeling

The weight is holding you down

When will this suffering end

Never alone

Through the fight we are strong though we hurt from the dirt we rise

Never alone

We all dream through nightmares

Through the heartache we remain

Every barrier we will break

When hope escapes your life and leaves you feeling trapped

How can you ever feel alive

Lost in a haze fighting through dark days

Demons clawing at the door I can’t take it anymore

Through the heartache we remain

Every barrier we will break

Hold on

Hold on cause we are

Never alone

Through the fight we are strong though we hurt from the dirt we rise

Never alone

We all dream through nightmares

Through the heartache we remain

Every barrier we will break.
Track Name: The Anthem Of The Doomed
The water has risen

The ocean has swallowed the land

Food grown from the suicide seed to feed to the mass

The sun has turned black

It’s close to the end of days

Poison in the form of a pill

To help tame the crave

Toxic waist consuming the earth

Pollution by the tone we have yet to unearth

The existence of the planet doomed

The land we inhabit doomed

The world as we know it doomed

This is the anthem of the doomed

Greed has poisoned our minds

Corruption grabs hold of our souls

So obvious it’s clear to the blind

Elite have overwhelming control

The existence of the planet doomed

The land we inhabit doomed

The world as we know it doomed

This is the anthem of the doomed

Go

Toxic waist consuming the earth

Pollution by the tone we have yet to unearth

This is the anthem of the doomed

And you love the poison.
Track Name: Soul Searcher
I’ve been searching for myself

A shell of what their once was

It’s been so long

So long since I have felt alive but god I try to live and not just survive

Wash the darkness from our lives

Erase the plague from inside our minds

We lost our way but not our hope

Searching for a way to come back home

Wash the darkness erase the plague

This is the war we’ve always know

Where’s the love gone

Why has my heart hidden

Concealed in the dark

Why am I so numb

Where did this come from

When will the healing seep in

We lost our way but not our hope

Searching for a way to come back home

Wash the darkness erase the plague

This is the war we’ve always know

Wash the darkness from our lives

Erase the plague from inside our minds

Against the wall we give it all

Against the wall we refuse to fall

We give it all

Don’t give up on me

Believe in yourself believe in hope

I won’t give up on you

My hands around your neck to untie the rope

Don’t give up on me

Remember who you were realize how far you’ve come

I won’t give up on you

I won’t give up

I won’t give up on you.
