Upon This Dawning are Brescia, Italy’s hometown heroes. The band have already developed a popular following in their native country through touring with popular North American bands such as Asking Alexandria, In Fear and Faith, Underoath and Dance Gavin Dance. Since their formation in 2006, the group has one EP entitled Count The Seconds Before Your Last Breath and a full release, On Your Glory We Build Our Empire under their belt.

When people think of Italians, they might automatically picture the cast of MTV’s hit reality show “Jersey Shore.” Italians are stereotyped as fake-tanned guidos who constantly say “bro” and use the fist pump as their signature dance move. Metalcore band MSWHITE prove the Italian stereotype wrong by reminding us that not every Italian is a DJ Pauly-D lookalike. With their heavy sound and contagious riffs it is obvious that MSWHITE are putting Italian hardcore on the map.
