GridLink Enter Studio, Begin Recording New Album from Hydra Head
Gridlink, (if not) everyone's favorite active grindcore outfit (then it should be), are currently planted firmly at Technical Ecstasy Studios in New Jersey to record their second full-length for Hydra Head Records!!! And that's pretty much the best great news for people who like their grind skimmed exclusively from the cream of the crop. Right? I know... tell me about it... Gridlink's debut certified their position at the top of a field most bands need years to climb...but then, lets not forget that their pedigree all but demanded that they take that position... Jon Chang fronted the much name checked Discordance Axis, guitarist Takafumi Matsubara honed his technique in Japan's Mortalized, (together Chang and Matsubara also make up half of Hayaino Daisuki) and drummer Bryan Fajardo was hand picked for his years behind the kit in Phobia and Kill The Client. And now, with album numero two, the band one-ups themselves by adding... get this... half of Human Remans to the batter...Ted Patterson (also of Burnt By The Sun) picks up the bass for this tour of duty, and guitarist Steve Procopio (also Discordance Axis' touring guitarist) rounds out the now 5 piece Gridlink in a way that we can only expect this new album to be every single bit of absolutely fucking awesome that we think its going to be.
Never one to mince words, Chang kept the details close... what we can confirm, though, is this.... the album is called "Orphan" and the band has "12 songs in the can." When we get our hands on that can, we'll let you know...
Currently Gridlink Lineup:
Jon Chang . Vocals
Takafumi Matsubara . Guitar 1
Bryan Fajardo . Drums
Ted Patterson . Bass
Steve Procopio . Guitar 2
