Grendel: Ascending the Abyss Tour
Grendel presents a live show in support of their new album, with support from Striplicker, Glass Apple Bonsai, and Esoterik
Officially formed in 2000 by JD Tucker, Grendel was quickly picked up by the legendary German label NoiTekk (a subdivision of Black Rain Records), upon hearing their first promo CD. This promo included the club hit Strangers and, after additional production & mastering, would become their 2001 debut studio album, Inhumane Amusement.
In 2005 Grendel released their now classic Soilbleed EP, of which the title track is to this day an unmissable club hit worldwide. This release marked a true milestone in the bands career and saw them touring larger stages throughout Europe, reaching a far greater audience, and topping alternative & sales charts. The EP was re-released in 2006 as Soilbleed Redux and featured additional material, such as a cover of Leaether Strips Dont Tame Your Soul, One.Eight.Zero and a remix by New York artists Life Cried.
This success would prompt a rework of the song on their following album, Timewave Zero, in 2012. Although returning to a more familiar sound, it would take on influences from a variety of contemporary dance music, such as trance, electro and house. This, again, would mark a big milestone in the bands progress, branching out from familiar ground and reaching a wider audience. Much praise was given for this and it would gain not only top chart positions, but also high sales.
In 2012, Grendel released the "Timewave : Zero" album. This album is both a return to their signature sound and taking on various influences from contemporary EDM styles, such as Trance, Complex Electro and House. All of this together has created the most mature Grendel sound to date and has gained highly positive feedback from both fans and media, scoring top positions in the DAC, GEWC, mailorder sales charts and more. In the years that followed, Grendel toured extensively on the success of this album in both Europe & North America.
