Once Upon is a five piece alternative metal band from Riga, Latvia formed in 2012. Consisting of people with musical experience and who enjoy what they do.
We tend to define ourselves as an alternative metal band. The main reason for this is that we don’t stick to a specific genre. We combine melodies of alternative metal, rhythm of metal-core, roughness of trash metal and a little bit of heaviness from death-core. The band, including its members, is still maturing to become something enjoyable and a pleasure to watch and listen to.
