After the release of the last Grendel studio album “Age of the disposable Body” and the re-release of their harsh electro album “Inhumane Amusement” (a 2CD set including bonus tracks), Grendel quickly returned to the studio to record a sixth full-length album.

The new studio effort has 10 all new songs and was mixed and mastered by Kojla Trelle (Soman).

Grendel formed in 1997 and was named after the beast in Beowulf. Grendel was signed by the German record label NoiTekk — a sub-division of the now defunct Black Rain label — which released their first studio album, “Inhumane Amusement”, an expanded and remastered version of their demo CD. The band is currently signed to Infacted.

Here’s a live snippet from last week.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
