Biography

Winds Of Plague is a band from LA, USA. The band was originally named “bleak december”, but changed their name in April 2005, getting their name from the lyrics in Unearth’s song “Endless”, from their 2002 EP of the same name.

The band contains the heavy breakdowns and stance towards music of the new wave of deathcore bands, but their unique use of more epic, melodic keyboard driven passages put them in the front of the pack. Their music has been compared with Bleeding Through. Also, reviews, press, and others have stated that they incorporate an atmosphere of . However, fans and the band themselves (in a video interview) would disagree with the label. They tend to mix American elements of metalcore and power metal with European symphonic death metal.

The first single from their major label debut, “The Impaler”, was accompanied by a video that was banned by MTV for its language and content. The video was made to be like a hip-hop video, with a computer generated “epic metal” part at the end. There was alot of fan backlash at the video.

    Эти харцкорные моменты, начиная с эгэинст зэ ворлд, совсем не в тему. The Great Stone War был и остаётся для меня любимым у них, всё остальное шлачина ебаная

    Open The Gates might have the best intro ever.

    Sewer Mouth is pretty great. Vincent Bennett's part is awesome.

    хм, приятно понимать, что группа начала играть более техничную музыку, но сохранив прежний шарм. один из лучших релизов осени. Ну и да, как я хочу попасть на их концерт!*_* Хотябы в Екб:D

    Not a whole lot stands out to me on the new album, maybe it'll grow on me, but it seems like this isn't quite as good as "Against The World' was.

    Never mind... the 11th track "Looking For A Better Day" seems to be attached to Snake Eyes.

    No it won't and no it isn't. [2] I had a phase with Winds Of Plague when I was getting into deathcore but their music hasn't held much relevance in my life for a long time. Decimate The Weak is their best, but it's already losing value m8.

    So, where did track 11 go? Or is it a bonus track?
