Grandier Sign to Argonauta Records; Debut Due in 2019

Posted in Whathaveyou on September 14th, 2018 by JJ Koczan

So, it’s four-thirty in the morning and I’m sitting at my kitchen table putting this post together about Grandier joining the ever-expanding ranks of Italy’s Argonauta Records. Empty iced tea cup on my left, empty coffee cup on my right, baby monitor on mute but in the periphery. I’ll admit I’ve never heard the Swedish trio before, so I plunk over to their Bandcamp to see what’s there, and put on the demo for “Butterfly in Flames.” And sitting here by myself, with early commuters whizzing by on the rain-slicked road outside, I listen to “Butterfly in Flames,” and as soon as the vocals kick in, I say out loud to absolutely nobody, “Nice.”

The power of good music, folks.

Grandier will make their full-length debut through Argonauta in 2019. The PR wire has details and background, and you’ll find “Butterfly in Flames” at the bottom of this post for your streaming pleasure.

SWEDISH HEAVY ROCKERS GRANDIER SIGN WITH ARGONAUTA RECORDS!

Heavy rockers Grandier are pleased to announce the collaboration with Argonauta Records for their first full length album, due for a release in 2019! Hailing from Norrköping, Sweden, Grandier was formed when guitarist Patrik teamed up with bassplayer and vocalist Lars (ex Bokor) for songwriting and studio sessions. With the inclusion of drummer Claes Pålsson Grandier moved forward as classic power trio.

True to their roots, Grandier focus on slow and heavy riffs influenced by the classic hard rock and early metal, but also with a massive hint of the doom, psych and stoner rock. Add a dose of grandeur and grunge sounds on the other hand, and Grandier deliver some finest head-crushing rock sound nowadays scene will have to offer!

The band released two singles, „Church Of Let It All Go” and „The Crows“, before they caught the attention of Argonauta Records in 2018. Grandier is currently putting final touches on their upcoming record in the studio, which will be seeing the light of day in 2019 with Argonauta Records.

„From the start of the band in late 2016, we wanted to focus on riffs and slow, heavy groove, and Lars vocals. Moody and groovy. So far, it has turned out pretty OK, and we’re quite obsessed with sound, recording and mixing so that’ll probably show, too. We’re also starting to look for shows to play live, but the focus right now is getting the album done.“

Grandier is Patrik Lidfors (Guitars) Lars Carlberg (Vocals, Bass) and Claes Pålsson (Drums).
