In the early days of cavernous warehouse concerts vocals/guitarist Larry Weeks, coupled with original drummer Wade Bergeron and bassist Larry Gammill formed Rictus Grin in a state of vehement creation. The metal trio drew people toward the band with an unexpected and curious magnetism. Realizing the band induced moshing pandemonium and unforgettable emotional upheavals the act moved to perform at venues beyond the darkened recesses.
Even with member changes and an evolving and growing crowd Rictus Grin continues to easily cross the lines between unforgettable underground parties and rabidly intense shows. Now that their reputation has spread, the metal community expects from Rictus Grin an unconventionally gripping and unique performance and a stage show that evoks pits, body passing, and band-encouraged prop demolition. Remembering their goals to reach beyond themselves, Rictus Grin organizes an annual Doomsday metal festival to showcase the talents of underground bands from all over the US, a festival that has occurred annually in the dead of winter for 7 years. Also always immersed in the scene, Rictus Grin vigilantly books WI show dates for touring acts from all over the world.
Now the line up includes the grim lunacy of Larry Grin on Guitar and Vocals, with dezzz Grin making her mark with bass thrashing unlike any seen before. To even out the band, they are joined by an electronic drum sound, lights and video show not to be matched and all the enthusiasm and drive of the metal that you know and require from Rictus Grin. Abiding their course they pursue unification of the scene and an ever pursuant determination to leave behind a timeless earthly immortality.
