Coming up among such North Carolina bands as Between the Buried and Me, Beloved, and He Is Legend gave the members of Onward To Olympas an appreciation for an array of genres. Since their formation in 2008, Onward To Olympas has meticulously cultivated their sound, blending progressive metal, straight hardcore, and elements of death metal. That the band can indulge all their musical proclivities, yet produce such consistent results, while making it seem easy is a testament to their craftsmanship. Says vocalist/guitarist Justin Gage, "We like the challenge of including all the genres that we most enjoy without making a song sound like it is being performed by three different bands."
On their new album This World Is Not My Home, recorded with Jamie King (Between the Buried and Me, For Today) Onward To Olympas make sure to bring the intensity, effortlessly melding melodic singing with thick metal-core screams, occasionally bringing a little old school back to the table with crisp gang vocals. The album ,polished and impressive, was released through Facedown Records in January 2010.
In 2013, Onward To Olympus announced their final tour
Hey guys. This band has meant a lot to us the last 4 years but is time to hang it up. We honestly cannot thank all of you enough for giving us the time of day and support throughout the years.
