Born in 2005 in the region of Pau (France), GRORR is a Progressive Death Metal band. Its concept gravitates around insect's microcosm. Sometimes oppressive, sometimes comical, this microcosm draws a portrait of mankind through its most violent, desperate and grotesque behavior.
After a self-made EP in 2008 and a LP named "PRAVDA" (released 2011), GRORR is now about to release a second opus baptized "ANTHILL".
This time, the band has dug their progressive side to its maximum, developing a four-parts album including 13 tracks. Introducing an amazing bunch of traditional music instruments and world music ambiences, using Sitar, Indian and African percussions, Hurdy-Gurdy, Japanese flute… GRORR is narrating the whole story of the Anthill from the awakening at Spring days, through expansion wars, till the end in a Revolution as winter's coming.
GRORR borrowed composition processes to both Classical music and Movies by story-boarding their tale. This so the music becomes as narrative as vocals, playing on themes and variations, alternating storms and calm.
All of that makes "ANTHILL" a 45 minutes and coherent opus with several ambiences in which, both lyrics and music, could be repeated as an endless loop.
