Quebec City's UPON YOUR GRAVE Now Streaming “Gold & Decay”


NoCleanSinging is now streaming the latest EP from Quebec death metal act Upon Your Grave. With the help of a successful GoFundMe campaign, the band was able to record “Gold & Decay” with producer Chris Donaldson of Cryptopsy in March. This collaboration was the perfect fit that would elevate their performances to a more genuine and aggressive sound. Vocalist Jordan Jolicoeur shares his thoughts on the theme of the EP:


“The theme exposes the duality of beauty and horror and their relation to each other. Nothing is black or white, everything is a nuance of grey living independently in every distinct mind. The heart also represents the revival of the band from the ashes, beating a creative flow in each of our personal lives. The golden heart also represents the power of creativity unphased by the passing of time and the withering of leaves. Instead beating stronger and renewed like the passing seasons. Its creative, aggressive and more mature than any other effort we put out until now.”


The EP is five tracks that each show off the capabilities of this band that has been around since 2009. Over the years, they have experimented with their sound and are now steady and impressive. A live show involves energy, full on impact with the crowd, funny moments and overall a tight performance, that is true to the recordings.

Proving that work ethic and perseverance can truly refine a band’s sound to what they had always been striving for, this new release will be a fresh start for great things to come and is only the beginning of a flourishing career.


Upon Your Grave delivers everything discerning metalheads look for in an album, they incorporate crushing vocals blended with catchy melodies, bad ass guitar riffs and memorable solos, the album is recommend for fans of Daath, Lamb of God, and The Black Dahlia Murder.


The EP “Gold & Decay” is being released on October 7, 2022 and be heard in full before its official release via its premiere on NoClenSinging HERE.
