Origin: San Francisco, California, USA  
Genres: Industrial
Last update/review: November 21, 2000


Grotus are the kind of band that probably don't consider themselves a metal band at all (and in some respects they aren't), but have interesting style that should appeal to many a metal fan. Combining industrial influences with a cool, bass-heavy groove, Grotus sound like no one else I've ever heard. Of their three albums, Slow Motion Apocalypse is probably their most consistent, though all three are quite recommended. A brilliant band, one of the best of the '90s. The band broke up in early 1997 due to problems with their record company. There were reports of band members starting other projects, but (to my knowledge) nothing has come of this.
