MUSIC VIDEO: Upon This Dawning – “Embrace The Evil”

Before I wrote this story I took fifteen minutes to experience More Than You Know and immediately two things become alarmingly clear: 1. Gang vocals will never die. 2. This band probably promotes itself as a cross between A Day To Remember and The Wonder Years. I’m not saying that is …
