Welcome to Life
Malicious Grind came to you from the bowels of El Segundo. Through the perils of the exquisite perpetration of trying to have a good time and escape the wrath of face. Malicious Grind sought similar headbanging souls. Malicious Grind existed for the sole purpose of exploding the cranial margin from temple to chin and cracking it into minute fractions. Since those thrashing, headbanging days, the members of Malicious Grind have gone on to other bands and other dramas. The drummer, Mark Luther is MIA. Craig Davis, guitar, went on to create Cronic with Ingrid Baumgart, now on guitar as well. They went on to release their first CD, 'Noi' which is also on sale throught this site. Currently, Craig Davis started a side project called 'Show Of Force.' Ingrid is currently in 'Pussy Galore Overdrive' (www: pussygaloreoverdrive.com). Craig and Ingrid are also currently working on Cronic II, In The Eye Of The Sound. Old Reviews of Malicious Grind's demo and lp: Maximum Rock & Roll (Issue #55) 'Hailing from the Bowels of El Segundo comes Malicious Grind with an impressive 9 song demo. MG is a crossover band leaning toward the hardcore side. (Especially the vocals). The band consists of Mark Luther (Drums), Craig Davis, (Guit), Eric Wood (Vocals), and Ingrid Baumgart (Bass/vocals) This band has a killer style blending the right amount of several distinctly different elements including: Hardcore/Punk, Speed Metal, and technical music passages. Alot of people have been bugging me for copies of this demo.' Blitzsteele (Issue #6) 'Malicious Grind deliver bone crunching, ear shattering hard core in the likes of old DRI, Circle Jerks, Dead Kennedys, etc. Don't get me wrong, MG is very original. I was just trying to give you an idea of what kind of music they play. Anyway, MG's debut 9 song demo is a must for all hardcore maniacs and thrashers. So, if you have an appetite for some killer hardcore, GET THIS DEMO!!!' Thrasher (March issue 88') 'Raw, feverous gut-crunching power attacks with the anger-driven chaos that builds up so crazily. MG hauls with a wicked barrage that detonates the depth charges of ear devastation. This 9 song demo rages with the ferocity of a vicious mad man rampaging in his padded cell. This is definitely a hardcore explosion with some metallic influences and the snotty, no holds barred approach of punk. MG packs those punches, quick, forceful and staggering. Each song fires a rapid net of mayhem around your cranium, squeezing hard with loud, blasting guitars, tongue twisting vocals and spastic drumming. The compositions are well tormented for this 3 piece outfit. This LP is a thrilling adventure into a chaotic, realm. Imagine a live gig with Slayer, Poison Idea and MG-the crowd would never know what hit them. Some of the better sounds to scream out of the speakers!
