Anfang des Jahres 2008 von Jochen Boellath (Inhaber von Daredevil Records, ex-Duster69) und seinem alten Kumpel Juergen Lobinger (ex-Cursed) im bayrischen Weiden als Projekt gestartet, entwickelten sich die GRAND MASSIVE schnell zu einer festen Einheit.

Ihre bisherigen  Konzertaktivitäten führte die Band u.a. schon auf das Wacken Rocks South Open Air (Slayer, Volbeat, Doro, Edguy). Ebenso enterte man als Supportband für Red Fang und Corrosion of Conformity bereits die große Bühnen.

Die Band  arbeitete in der Vergangenheit bereits mit John Lancaster (CHUM - Gastsänger auf der Going into Red Single), mit John Hermansen (Mother Misery, Awesome Machine, Stonewall Noise Orchestra  - Mix) und Dan Swanö (Mastering von „2“). Für „3“ konnten Andy Classen für das Mastering und David Johannesson (Mustasch) als Gastgitarrist gewonnen werden.

„3“ wurde im Müncherner Wellenklang und Weltraum Studio aufgenommen.

Gemischt in Schweden von John Hermansen (Mother Misery, Stonewall Noise Orchestra, Awesome Machine)

Gemastert von Andy Classen (u.a. Tankard, Legion Of The Damned, Destruction)

 

 

The basement of GRAND MASSIVE was built in Germany by Jochen Boellath (owner of Daredevil Records, ex-Duster69) with his long-time friend Juergen Lobinger (ex-Cursed) in early 2008. The band was completed by long-time Duster 69 friend Toby Brandl (ex-Commander) and Holger Stich (ex-Red Tape Parade). After some collaboration and live-support with Swedish singer John Hermansen (Mother Misery, ex-Awesome Machine, ex-Stonewall Noise Orchestra) in the “Duster69-years”, Jochen asked John´s brother Tony to do the vocals. So…the line-up has been completed and the first EP was recorded in a professional studio as a first Demo.

GRAND MASSIVE played in August 2009 at the legendary WACKEN ROCKS SOUTH Festival on the WET-STAGE with bands like SLAYER, VOLBEAT, IN EXTREMO, EDGUY, DORO, GRAVE DIGGER and many more.

The legendary producer DAN SWANÖ (Katatonia, Edge of Sanity, Hail of Bullets, Asphyx, Motorjesus) mastered the EP called "II", out February 2015 via 7 HARD Music / Membran! "2" got great reviews in Europe, America and especially in Germany.

„3“ was recorded at „Wellenklang und Weltraum Studio“, Munich.

Mixed in Sweden by John Hermansen (Mother Misery, Stonewall Noise Orchestra, Awesome Machine)

Masterd by Andy Classen (u.a. Tankard, Legion Of The Damned, Destruction)

And as special attraction, David from Mustasch did guest-solos on the record.
