Gurd  


Gurd is the continuation, of sorts, of the thrash band Poltergeist, formed in 1994 by two members of that band. Rather than continuing to play traditional thrash as Poltergeist did, Gurd opted to retain the aggression of thrash, mixed with a more modern, groove-ish crunch that occasionally wanders into nu-metal territory, a la newer Machine Head or, to a lesser extent, Pantera. The band had been signed to Century Media for a number of years for European releases (doubly odd, since Gurd's style is neither like the typical CM band nor do they really sound very European at all) before hooking up with Diehard Music for their most recent release, Encounter.
