Upcast is a mix of bay area thrash, teutonic thrash, and modern metal/hardcore styles, spiced up with lyrics about the horrors of mankind, brutal slaughter of animals, the apocalypse and other promising subjects. The result is modern thrash metal - in its purest form.

To date, Upcast has released four EP's. Three of them feature Igor ShyGuy Sedunov, formerly of Nancial, on vocals. They are The Fear (2009), Legions of Thrash (covers, 2009), and Dead Simple (2010).
