Grinder played pretty standard speed/thrash metal -- though German, they often sounded more like American thrash bands of that time. Possibly a victim of underexposure, as Noise Records had a crowded roster of quality bands at the time and they didn't seem to be well promoted. Another case of a decent, but not terribly unique, band. Some members later carried on in a similar band called Capricorn, releasing at least two albums in the early/mid-nineties.
