Grenade are a Black/Death Metal band from Australia and a brazillian band lead by Rodrigo Guedes from Londrina, Paraná.GRENADE GENRES
The Australian Grenade "began in 1998 after guitarist, Nigel, then a member of two other underground Sydney metal bands, found three fellow metal maniacs, who knew their way around their instruments, to give spirit and form to music that he had begun writing literally years before. After considering a number of names, the band settled on Grenade as a fitting description of the assault their music conveys.
Grenade made their first live foray in Adelaide in 1999 as part of Metalmorphosis, an all-Australian twelve-band metalfest that saw them featured on a bill that also included Elysium, Stargazer, and Lord Kaos.
The band decided that instead of rushing into recording, they would focus on rehearsals and playing live, over the years participating in a legion of gigs in several states, playing alongside Destroyer 666, Gospel of the Horns, Incantation, Anatomy, Misery, Nunslaughter, Vomitor, Dungeon, Miscreation, and Urgrund amongst others.
In July, 2001 Grenade compiled their Rugged Rehearsal Demo from rough, private recordings made over the two years preceding. Although the band themselves still wanted to bide their time over a recording, constant harrassment from their peers and fans to release something, anything with a Grenade logo plastered across the front convinced the band to shut them up for the time being with a rough and unready demo, in the form of a three-track tape and CD, the disc having two bonus tracks on top.
In June 2003, Grenade released a 7" EP, Venom of God, featuring the title track and Carnivorous Lunar Activities, through the now defunct Australian underground metal label, Decius Productions. This was the first studio release for the band. June 2004 saw the release of another 7" EP: Hellsong, through the French label Aura Mystique. The band are currently at work on their debut full-length album."
