2008 – present (10 years)
Orphan Grinder is the name of more than one artist:
1) electronic alt-rock
2) one-man brutal grind/death
1) Started in May of 2008, Orphan Grinder is the unholy dream of Riley Eichler and Aaron Wallis come to fruition. Sick of all the mainstream garbage and political ignorance clogging the airwaves they set out to create a diverse and powerful sound. The inspiration for Orphan Grinder draws from a vast number of musicians, from Skinny Puppy to The BBC's Radiophonic Workshop. Orphan Grinder has shared the stage with such acts as DYM, Cyanotic and The Kettle Black.
Jesus Christ Inc. (released on the 20th of February 2009) is their first demo and contains five tracks. Revolution, Jesus Christ Inc, Metamorphosis, Nothing Left and Deus Ex Machina. All of which is posted here for your listening pleasure.
The idea behind Orphan Grinder's performance is a do-it-yourself attitude, minimalistic stage set up accompanied by big sound and lights. Their use of driving guitar, distorted synths, vocoder and abrasive vocals, gives them a unique sound that sticks out in the sea of conformity. Only a short time has passed since the band's creation and already they have come so far, but this is just the beginning…
