GRID comes from the north of Sweden founded in 2014 by Frongo, Andreas and Wilke. In the beginning, the goal was to annoy Umeå-hardcore-elite but it didn’t take long until the band found a more refined sound. In 2015 they got signed by Discouraged Records, released the first EP (Umeå Grindcore) and played a number of show’s including a performance at OEF 2016, later that year Wilke left the band.
When GRID turned into a duo the sound and the lyric’s evolved to a more “melodic” kind of grindcore with misanthropical lyrics, faster D-Beats and harder blast beat’s and a new EP called Human Collapse Syndrome. GRID also did a tour in southeast asia in 2017. In 2018 after a short nordic tour GRID turned into a 3-piece again when Kaka decided to join the band. Now they are here with a bunch of new songʼs on a new album called “Livsleda”.
