Created in 1998 as a side-project of all that was Grind/Noise influenced in the Lille, FR, area back then (aka members of Warscars, Frankensperm, Assplosion and more), GRONIBARD released a single demo, "Prendez-Moi!" recorded before (yes, before) their first ever rehearsal and, after a bunch of tapes and splits, got signed to Bones Brigade records in 2000 for the release of their debut, untitled, full-length that saw the light of the day the following year.
The album became an immediate cult release and the band played the most renewed festivals around the world (Maryland DeathFest, Obscene Extreme, NRW Fest, Blastonbury Fest, Fuck The Commerce and so many more).
Since then, they released the "Satanic Tuning Club" MCD in 2003 (Bones Brigade) and a split CD with Gorerotted and Gruesome Stuff Relish the same year and their second full-length, "We are French, fukk you" in 2008 (Bones Brigade). 2010 saw them releasing a split 7" EP with Dutch one-man goregrind band Anal Penetration (Bones Brigade).
Early 2012, Kaotoxin records releases "Satanic Tuning Club Turbo!" on 12" LP and digital download exclusively, including the two 2003 releases (the split with Gorerotted and Gruesome Stuff relishe as a remastered version) and six previously unreleased (studio, acoustic and live) tracks.
