The dark metal industrialists WITCHGRINDER rose from the deepest, darkest graves of Melbourne in mid-2009. Bringing you a unique new style of terror, their music is inspired by the 80s metal sound of Metallica mixed with the strong, industrial grooves of Ministry, Rammstein and Static-X; from the classic horror/sci-fi stories that make your skin crawl, their lyrics and samples give a spooky, Rob Zombie/Marilyn Manson feel to the music.
Rob Zombie was born as Robert Cummings in Haverhill, Massachusetts on January 12, 1965. He was the former lead singer for the rock/metal group White Zombie, and later became a successful solo artist, disbanding the group after his first solo album sold more in the first week than any of the band's albums ever did. He released that album, Hellbilly Deluxe, in 1998 . Remixes of some of its tracks were released on 1999's American Made Music To Strip By, followed up by the studio release called The Sinister Urge in 2001.
Formed in 2003 in Geneva, Switzerland by guitar player Drop and singer Benjamin, Sybreed was created to reflect their mutual tastes for metal and industrial music, with conceptual contents revolving around social misery, everyday alienation and the decay of the modern way of life in general. Later, they began work on material for their first album SLAVE DESIGN which was released in 2004, and then performed around the US to unleash the album's electronic violence on stage.
There's more than one artist under this name:
1. Thorns (formed as Stigma Diabolicum, but changed name to Thorns after two years) is a Norwegian black metal band, masterminded by Blackthorn (Snorre W. Ruch - also in <a href="http://www.last.fm/music/Mayhem" class="bbcode_artist">Mayhem</a> and <a href="http://www.last.fm/music/Satyricon" class="bbcode_artist">Satyricon</a>). They made two highly influential demos in the early 90's, Grymyrk and Trøndertun, but have only released one full-length album, since the band was founded, in 1989.
Ghostly is an extreme drone/industrial metal project led by Deaemae. The project is drum machine driven band that relies on repetative guitar riffs or droning noise with usually deep death metal-style grunts to high pitch black metal screeches. The project has a primitive sound that Deaemae purposely tries achieving to create a "dark atmosphere." Initially, the project started off as a project that would play pure death metal with doom metal touches. Eventually, the project took a change incorporating more industrial tones to the music than actual death metal.
Jenarium is the new Sci-Fi Musical Experience created by composer and author, Robert Dominic. It will be broken into several books and musical album, “Rise Of The New Sun” being the histories of the heroic first epoch of the mythical world. The story follows a sequence of events that leads to the coming of the first born race, the Sinturians, centring a legendary world, with the newly created terrifying subterranean, ravenous hoard known as the “Rifer Nation”, along with mythical beasts both good and evil, and powerful warriors of high order; it is a battle for survival!
Hanzel Und Gretyl are an American industrial metal band formed by members Loopy and Vas Kallas. They formed in 1993, sharing a vision of the future which focused on the rise of machines to power over Earth, and having the tools needed to turn that vision into music. Their first album "Ausgeflippt" was released on Energy Records. The album, translating to "flipped-out" in German, received great reviews, while their dance single "Shine 2001" reached #1 position on the Alternative press Dance Chart. The duo formed a live band, recruiting Ginger Bread on bass and Pat 5000 on drums.
Marilyn Manson (born as Brian Hugh Warner on January 5, 1969) is the lead singer of the Fort Lauderdale, Florida, United States-based shock rock group of the same name. Warner chose the name, a combination of Marilyn Monroe and Charles Manson, to illustrate what he considered to be the extreme dualism of late 20th century American culture. The stage names of each band member were originally created by combining the first name of an iconic female sex symbol and the last name of an iconic mass murderer or serial killer...
