Uada is an American black metal band from Portland, Oregon, led by Jake Superchi. Known for their anonymous aesthetic[1][2], the band has never appeared in video interviews or without their trademark hoods.[3][4]

According to Metal Archives, Uada is Latin for "haunted."[5]


Uada was formed in 2014 after Superchi's prior band Ceremonial Castings was put on hiatus.

In 2016, the band signed to German metal label Eisenwald[6] and released their debut album Devoid of Light shortly thereafter.[7]

Uada performed at the 2016 edition of Montreal black metal festival Messe des Morts[8], which was heavily protested and eventually shut down by anti-racism activists.[9][10] The band eventually suffered show cancellations in 2018 for performing at the festival.[11][12]

In 2017, founding drummer Trevor Matthews formed Pillorian with former Agalloch frontman John Haughm.[13]

While on tour that same year, Uada was awarded with medals and other gifts by the Technical Secretary to the President of Mexico Roberto Padilla Domínguez.[14]

In 2018, the band released its sophomore album Cult of a Dying Sun to critical acclaim.[15] Decibel (magazine) ranked the album #3 on its Top 40 of 2018 music list.

In 2020, Uada released its third album Djinn.[16]
