Winds Of Plague is a Symphonic Deathcore 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. Read more on Last.fm

Live: THE MOSH LIVES! @ London Highbury Garage – 06 May 2011

May 11th, 2011

This tour was called THE MOSH LIVES!. We were confused as to whether that it meant that a mosh was alive, in which case nobody sent us a press release about it dying or whether it was the name of a new reality TV show following a few moshers around. We would probably watch that because we too are utter morons.
