By bringing together a few elements that were part of Porto’s city underground music history, GRINDEAD is a new project formed in 2015 that delivers the rawness feeling back on the venues, with music that discharges the heaviness and abrasiveness of death metal and grindcore, but still retaining some punchy and groovy sound motifs.
GRINDEAD members are no strangers to the portuguese underground music scene.
They all took part in several bands and have a rock/metal curricula:
VOX | Luís Gonçalves | Genocide, Lost Gorbachevs, Cemitério
GUITAR |Mário “El Mariochi” Ribeiro | Genocide, Raising Fear
BASS | David Teves Reis | Bal Onirique, Hospital Psiquiátrico, Mysterium
DRUMS |Miguel “M&Ms” Brandão | Agnósia, Web
The debut concert was in October 2018 @ Porto DeathFest IV and we’ve been playing in Portugal and Spain since then. In March 2019, we released our self-titled 6 songs promotape through the label LARVAE Records. In July we released our first official video clip (Turn Black). In fall 2020 the band released “Virus Session – Live at Barracuda” again through Larvae Records.
