Winds of Plague – California


Winds of Plague is an American deathcore band from Upland, California, formed in 2002. They are best known as one of the only deathcore bands to incorporate symphonic elements into their music.

The band’s name is derived from a section of lyrics in the Unearth song “Endless”; “Growing wings of sorrow/have brought you to the winds of plague.”
Against the World is the fourth studio album by the band. It was released on April 19, 2011 through Century Media Records. Against the World features guest appearances from members of Hatebreed, Terror, For Today, Stray From the Path and former world heavyweight wrestling champion and sports entertainment legend Ultimate Warrior (who performs a spoken-word track entitled “The Warrior Code”). The album is described in a press release as “the heaviest-hitting record of the band’s already heralded career.”

The track “California” features Martin Stewart of Terror and John Mishima.
