The Gauntlet talks to Gridlink's Jon Chang!

huge thanks to Carlos and the entire staff!

Gridlink Interview

If you have followed Grindcore in the last fifteen years, you’re probably already familiar with the work of Jon Chang. The New Jersey native fronted the sorely-missed Discordance Axis, which also included blast beat god Dave Witte (Municipal Waste among others) on drums. Chang’s high-pitched screams and blood-curling growls spawned a scene of copy-cats. If it weren’t for Discordance Axis, its doubtful bands like Pig Destroyer would sound the way they do. The New Jersey based front man is currently fronting GridLink, a band that will surely appeal to old-school Grind and Power Violence fans and to more, forward-thinking Metal listeners. The Gauntlet recently caught up with the busy singer to talk about the new band, his history in Grindcore, and why Anal Cunt’s Seth Putnam wrote a song about him.
