Grey March came onto the Baltimore/Washington DC music scene at a pivotal time when it was ok to mix thrash bands and emo/experimental bands all together at the same show on the same night.
The shows Grey March played from 1984 to 1987 were wild times where skin heads, thrashers, skate punks, Goths, and Death metal heads all came together in a wild frenetic movement that was the scene. Many shows resulted in violence in and around the clubs (not a direct result of the band's music). The band developed a loyal following of youth from all kinds and started to develop a sound of their own. Key influences to Grey March were The Doors, Jimmy Hendrix, Black Sabbath, Echo and The Bunny Men, The Cure, The Sisters Of Mercy, Minor Threat, and especially WARSAW (early Joy Division) -these bands melted together to form that dark, black, raw and energetic sound.
"Lindenstruth made his departure from the group [[artist]Reptile House], changing his surname to Higgs and forming Lungfish with Reptile House guitarist Asa Osbourne. The group, now in need of a new frontman, recruited ex-Grey March keyboardist Ron Weldon for vocal duties, but shortly thereafter the group broke up." ~ Rick Kutner, All Music Guide Read more on Last.fm.
