Biography

Le Grand Guignol is the new name of the Luxembourgian symphonic black metal band Vindsval, bringing a more sound into the music. After a decade of artistic thriving, coherence and innovation leave the halls of Vindsval to have it relocated to a theater bearing the name of LE GRAND GUIGNOL - after the 19th / 20th century Parisian theater. The theater specialized in naturalistic horror shows.

To those unfamiliar with Vindsval’s history, please have a cosy seat in the front row and read about the past acts of the band:

1996

In winter, VINDSVAL comes fourth in the south of Luxembourg as the successor band of “Dregoth”, an extreme metal band founded by Patrick, Philip and Yves. (see, there has already been a change of name, and it hurt no one, so get used to the new -and definite!- one)
With both Patrick and Yves alternating on drums and guitars, an early collection of own songs is amateurishly recorded under the name of “Codex Nocturnus”.

1997

VINDSVAL is helped out by Shadow, himself drummer of the fellow luxembourgish black-metal band “Black Candle”. With his participation, the first and only real demo-tape “Of Heathen Blood And Soil” is recorded on august 16th. About 50 copies are given away among friends.

1998

Having trouble finding appropriate rehearsal rooms in Luxembourg, VINDSVAL decides to build up the headquarters in Karlsruhe, Germany, the home ( for studying purposes at that time) of Patrick and Philip.
