UPON WINGS features a magical symphony of operatic, female-fronted goth-pop with rousing rock and metal in a unique, ethereal landscape. With comparisons to the likes of Nightwish, Within Temptation, Evanescence, and more, UPON WINGS establishes themselves as the next step in this niche of Goth-Rock – which I, myself, can’t help but love. As their website says, “UPON WINGS is for those who value intrigue and adventure” that “takes listeners down a path of heartfelt introspection, pain, joy and faith.” Walk with me and sit as spell as we enjoy their recent single “Eternal Way.”
More than just Rhythm
Not just defined by the rhythm, UPON WINGS delivers on the folk tale inspired genre, creating a mystical journey for you to embark on. It plays to your heart, mind, and soul, an energy that transcends deep joy! Seduced by the harmonies, spectacular guitar riffs and drums, UPON WINGS embodies a true rock inspired goth-pop. Sit back and relax as we enjoy their recent single “Eternal Way.”
The outcome created was a Euro-classical fairytale reminiscent of an 18th century French chateau. With sharp bold guitar work of Jardine and Max Georgiev (lead touring guitarist, FALLING IN REVERSE), evenly balanced with raw, natural vocals of front woman, Anne Autumn Erickson, and guest vocalist Ralf Scheepers (PRIMAL FEAR, GAMMA RAY). Released in March 2021, “Eternal Way” revisits the artistry established in their 2013 debut EP, Afterlife, featuring Brett Hestla (ex-CREED, DARK NEW DAY) as guest vocalist. Hailing from Michigan, UPON WINGS, again joined Grammy-nominated engineer Glenn Brown (Kid Rock; Winner, 2021 Grammy Award for Best Bluegrass Album), producer/guitarist Kevin Jardine, and drummer Peter Tzaferis (both of SLAVES ON DOPE).
