In January 2002, Ivan and Vedran (at that time 2 members of the brutal death/grind band Grobar) decided to start a new band to fill up their spare time and for the love of brutal musick. With no significant direction in mind they started to rehearse and little by little the pieces started to fit. Vedran (bass) and Ivan (guitar) didnât have a drummer or a singer at that time. Ivan started programming the drums and the musick twisted into form. In the vein of Brutality Reigns Supreme, Mortician and Gut songs were unleashed upon this earth.CLITEATER GENRES
It was sure they needed a singer and they gave a tape of their rehearsal material to Joost (Inhume). Joost became very interested in their stuff and in February/March he joined the band. As a 3-pack they recorded a
demo in April with 11 crushing songs of their own plus 2 covers by Gut. One song by Gut was released on the Gut-Tribute cd by American Line Products (November 2003).
In June 2002 they found a drummer, Maurice from Fleshbrigade (r.i.p.), so they finally could prove themselves live! The gigs were a big succes for the band and a lot of people became interested in Cliteater.
Cliteater shared stages with bands like: Cock and Ball Torture, Last Days Of Humanity, Aborted, Blockheads, Agathocles, Rompeprop and a lot more!
They also toured with cult grinders âDead Infectionâ and âCerebral Turbulencyâ!!
Marking a place on the map of extreme musick, so nobody could ignore the Cliteater grinders anymore.
The Cliteater unholy grind pack brought out their first cd in September 2003, which is called âClit âem Allâ.
Clit âem All was recorded in May 2003 with Erwin âLetâs get Mangledâ Hermsen and released by Dismemberment Records in corporation with Bleedinâ Hemorroid Records. Of this cd 250 copies were sold in a week. Unfortunately these labels could not affort pressing more so Cliteater decided to move on and search for a label which was interested in re-releasing the cd. That resulted in a deal with Restrain Records. Restrain Records reissued Clit âem All in April 2004 to be distributed by Cudgel Agency from Germany. Cliteater played at the Fuck The Commerce Festival and the Obscene Extreme Festival in 2004.
After this Cliteater went to the studio again in September/October 2004, to record their second album âEat Clit Or Dieâ. This again with Erwin Hermsen. The Eat Clit Or Die album will be released on Restrain Records
at the end of March 2005.
Further on, the Cliteater guys have been busy recruiting a new member to the Clit Clan. They found their fifth member in Alex (or Analex), during the summer of 2004. Cliteater has found the perfect âmanâ in Analex as their 2nd guitarplayer to give the musick live more power.
Cliteater will also release a split cd with colleague grinders Suppository somewhere in the end of 2005, so stay tuned!
