Brutal, but intelligent. That's what Upon Infliction set out to do with their first release, " To Escape Is To Suffer". Formed in South Florida, UI is the brainchild of Gus Rios and Seth Ringler. Gus Rios has been part of the S. FL metal scene for over 15 years. Starting out with his first band, Sickness, which also featured Kyle Symons on vocals, Gus has played in several noted bands through the years. He has done tours with Divine Empire, played on and co-wrote Kult Ov Azazel's first album, "Triumph of Fire", and has been Malevolent Creation's first call touring drummer for the last 3 years, as well as co-writing the last 4 albums with Phil Fasciana. Seth Ringler caught Gus's attention with his flawless execution of brutal yet complex riffs. Seth's ability to play his instrument with precision was exactly what UI needed to come to life. The band is rounded out by vocalist Brian Mygrant, who also came from nearby Miami, and Hector Rios, Gus' brother on bass. Undeniably fast, but not to the point of overdoing it, UI adds songwriting to the death metal mix. Relying more on good songs to ensnare the listener rather than just sheer speed.
