Upon Stone Debut “Dead Mother Moon” Video, Announce New Album


Upon Stone‘s Century Media debut album “Dead Mother Moon” has been lined up for a January 19th release. The melodic death metal outfit signed with the aforementioned label earlier this year and had Taylor Young (Twitching Tongues, Nails) produce the outing at his The Pit recording studio.

The title track is the second song to be given an advance listen from the record, with a video co-directed by Steven Grise and the band now available for viewing. Vocalist/bassist Xavier Wahlberg had the following to divulge about the story behind the outing:

“A mortal human’s search for meaning through the practice of ritual and magic. Discovering the power and reverence of the nocturnal spirit world waiting to be gained for those willing to devote themselves to it completely. The Dead Mother Moon represents a manifestation/personification of these elements. A deity/goddess ruling over it all.”

As you can see in the below track listing, the group have lined up a guest appearance Brian Fair of returning metalcore outfit Shadows Fall.
