Using the grisly tale behind the name "Grendel" as a basis for their music, Grendel has successfully emerged as a dark and chaotic force in the underground electronic scene. In 1997 Grendel was formed although this was not the band's original name. It wasn't until the band as it was known split up that the remaining members decided to change the name. "Grendel" was a beast in the classic mythological story of "Beowulf" that would lure people from villages and drown them in marshes. The new name and line up helped to create a unique aura for the band that attracted thousands of fans across Europe.
Throught the 2000's, Grendel has built a repertoire of aggressive and dancable alternative club anthems, earning them critical acclaim in the media, becoming a staple DJ record and topping scene charts world wide (including DAC & GEWC). Prescription: Medicide, and Harsh Generation come to mind.
After of their 2012 release "Timewave Zero", the band released "Age Of The Disposable Body", and is currently completing work on their next release.
Striplicker spontaneously exploded into existence when the world proved itself incompetent, and in need of ownership.
The music of Striplicker celebrates all things visceral. The pounding bass beats and mesmerizing synthesis of dance music, the chugging and screaming burn of industrial metal guitars, the power of intense live drums, and twisted visual stimulation, all combine into a stomping, dancing, controlled chaotic, riveting experience.
GLASS APPLE BONZAI
Glass Apple Bonzai is the solo synthpop / synthwave project of the illustrious Daniel X. Belasco of Defence Mechanism. A sonic trip into the darker, moodier parts of the 1980's synth movement. Aptly titled "Depressionwave" by some random person on the internet. If you like the 80's then you'll like this, honest.
