From mid-2007 on, Grindpad became the official name, and the machine started rolling.
Cool shows and two EP’s, leading Grindpad to win the Dutch Metal Battle in 2010. More shows followed among which were Occult Fest and shows supporting Bolt Thrower, Benediction & Tankard.
Bandmembers came & went, but the two-guitar-assault-engine (JG & Axel) always stayed the same.
Then, in 2011 the machine collapsed when three out of five members left...
Instead of quitting, JG & Axel were more determined than ever to keep the monster alive.
It didn’t need to be ‘brought back’; it was never dead…
Having never been fully satisfied with the musical direction, they decided that now was the time to switch one hundred percent towards the music that they always wanted to bring: violent, aggressive, old-school, non-melodic, merciless, hacking THRASH!
