Grindfeld (Wretched, Rivers of Nihil, ex-Alterbeast), a band about “nothing”

Posted by on November 13, 2018

Fans of Seinfeld and metal rejoice! In an incredible stroke of luck and genius, a band is born that will forever change the way you look at the classic show and heavy tunes.

Grindfeld is the result of a deep love of perhaps the greatest sitcom ever created combined with a passion for hardcore and death metal. Wretched’s Joel Moore (guitar/bass/engineering), Rivers of Nihil/ The Undying’s Jared Klein (drums) and ex-Alterbeast, The Kennedy Veil, Fallujah’s Monte Barnard (vocals) have created a unique tribute to the legacy of Jerry Seinfeld and Larry David. Grindfeld bridges the gap between death metal and comedy but, does so in a way that retains the integrity of both.

Here is an excerpt from the press release,

“After what seems like a lifetime of repeat viewings, re-runs and falling asleep to the same laugh track over and over again, Ex and current members of Wretched, Alterbeast, The Kennedy Veil and Rivers of Nihil decided there was more to this simple show about “Nothing”.

Making light of the mundane drudgery of average daily life is simply a thin veil laid over the nihilistic truths put forth by Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld during the quintessential time in our collective generations upbringing.

Born out of a mutual love of Death Metal, comical observations, coffee and Hardcore, Grindfeld is a project built on the existential dread hidden just under the surface of daily life.

For fans of: Death Metal, Coffee, Pirate Shirts, Hardcore, Grindcore, Wasting your life pouring over minutia of every single daily event, stand up comedy.

Not for fans of: Kenny Bania, Nazis.

Each song is a synopsis of an episode, highlighting sitcom televisions’ zenith of quality.”

Tracklist:

1.) “The Contest”
2.) “The Soup Nazi”
