1. Grendel is a harsh ebm artist from Netherlands. They started out in 1997 under a different name, but due to the band splitting up the name was changed into the current one. VLRK continued under the name Grendel, which originates from a character from the old Anglo-Saxon tale ‘Beowulf’.

In 2000 Grendel’s first promo CD was released which included the Dutch dance floor hit ‘Strangers’. Within a very short period of time the promo was being played at many locations throughout the Netherlands and internationally.

To follow this up, the “End of Ages EP” was released in 2002 and marked new territory for Grendel with tracks such as the international hit title-track “End of Ages”, the pounding “Catastrophe” and the intriguing “Noisome”. With the unorthodox and original use of orchestration, obscure samples incorporated with harsh and pounding EBM structures this release again recieved almost only great reactions from both the media and listeners and would set Grendel’s sound for the future.
