Sobre el concepto del álbum:

“Establece un paralelismo entre el oscurantismo de la Edad Media las nuevas formas de control y censura ...

Recordándonos la importancia de mantener viva la rebeldía y luchar por las utopías. Y musicalmente el disco se puede definir como una mezcla de Metal Extremo y Dark Ambient ”. Declara la letrista y compositora Tamara Picardo.

10 years of Upon Shadows "Melodies In Grey Scale" !

On Monday is going to be 10 years of Upon Shadows "Melodies In Grey Scale".

The album was digitally released in October 18th/2010 but the physical edition was released by Satanica records (NZ), in Feb. 22/2011.

This is a very important album for me, because that was when I started recording all the guitars by myself, and together with Natalia Arocena we consolidated as a duo. (Before - from 2002 -2009 - we were three, and the guitar was in charge of Marcelo Aguilar, although the composition of the songs in their entirety was always mine). Stay safe and try to keep the flame alive! Tamara.


El lunes se cumplirán 10 años de Upon Shadows "Melodies In Grey Scale".

El álbum fue lanzado digitalmente el 18 de octubre de 2010, pero la edición física fue lanzada por Satanica Records (NZ), el 22 de febrero de 2011.

Este es un disco muy importante para mí, porque fue entonces cuando empecé a grabar todas las guitarras por mi cuenta, y junto a Natalia Arocena nos consolidamos como dúo. (Antes - de 2002 a 2009 - éramos tres, y la guitarra estaba a cargo de Marcelo Aguilar, aunque la composición de las canciones en su totalidad siempre fue mía).
