Biography

Unto Acheron is a Melodic Death Metal/Metalcore quintet hailing from Dallas, TX in the United States. They are noted for their Greek mythology-based image (“Greekcore” is their self-proclaimed genre status). They describe their music as a hybrid mixture of melodic death metal and metalcore.

Unto Acheron takes many influences from many bands, such as Oceano, As Blood Runs Black, Decades Of Despair, Wretched, Decapitated, As I Lay Dying and All That Remains, as well as non-metal influences to form a a huge and epic sound.

In August 2009, Brett (guitarist) set out on a solo project entitled “Beneath Haides” in order to channel his heavy Greek interest. Starting out as a traditional metalcore band, it quickly evolved into the Deathcore genre. Because of this new style, the name was soon changed to ‘Unto Acheron” and Brett acquired Blaine Mathis (guitarist) and Eli Jimenez (Drummer). Soon after, Chief (Bass) and Andrew (Vocals) joined the band and Unto Acheron worked on their sound and became a titanic beast of melodic riffs and heavy breakdowns. After personal issues arose, the lineup of the band went through several changes. During this time period, Unto Acheron was developing their sound even further and continuing to evolve to the very outskirts of deathcore into something new.

Towards the end of summer 2010, the band then acquired vocalist Kendel Jackson and bassist David Ramirez. After completing the writing process, Unto Acheron began to self-record what would become their full-length debut album.
