Have you ever wondered what kind of music a slightly deranged gravedigger would make?
After several years spent on Europe’s stages with Trepalium, frontman KK ( Cédric Punda) dedicated himself to writing and recording GRIM REAPER RIDE’s first opus, aptly titled Hellbilly Back to Underground. Joined in the wake by a crew ready to get their hands dirty, the quintet (comprised of Nicolas Hoareau, Fabien Trichet Renaud Guillemet and new drummer Clément Genty) made their first gigs alongside Mobu¨tu, Karma Zero, The Chris Rolling Squad, Mercyless and Demon Vendetta. Stitching together a mixture of styles, you could call it a Frankenstein’s monster of music. This gravedigger, being more than Rock ‘n’ Roll, tries his hand at Hellbilly, a genre at the crossroads of Psychobilly, Punk, and Metal, with a saturated upright bass as its core element. The release of a video clip shot in Brooklyn NYC sets the tone for the album, which will be published this fall with WormHoleDeath Records. From Rockabilly to Metal, it’s a groovy, bluesy road!
