The annual heavy metal festival was originally created by Kevin Lyman, the Vans Warped Tour founder, and John Reese, who is Lyman’s partner on the Taste of Chaos Tour. Since the festival’s inception it has been notorious for being one of the heaviest music festivals around that always consists of a stellar lineup with metal acts of a variety of sub-genres.

With all of the modern and digital conveniences ever so present in life today, most people seldom ever listen to an album from start to finish as the artists had intended them to be heard.

An album that truly needs to be heard from start to finish dropped last Tuesday, August 12, 2014. The San Antonio, Texas metal natives Upon A Burning Body released their third studio album, “The World Is My Enemy Now” on Sumerian Records. The album hits hard from the start and finishes just as strong without lagging at any point. Upon A Burning Body bring a relentless energy and passion throughout “The World Is My Enemy Now“.
