The band played its first headlining gig in Aarhus in the same year. The band quickly signed with Progress Red Labels (later Diehard) and in the September of the same year entered Borsing Recording with producer Jan Borsing to record Primates. In January of 1995 the band recorded Spill The Blood for Slatanic Slaughter, a Slayer covers CD, and ...And Justice For All for a Metallica tribute. Grope toured with label-mates Konkhra and Trend in 1995, shot a video for the track Enemy and entered the studio in December to record a new album. This session produced thirteen songs for The Fury and four more for the Soul Pieces EP.
The latter was released in January of 1996. A video for Soul Pieces was also filmed. The Fury was released in March. By the time of Desert Storm the band had scaled back its attack though. Furthermore, by the time the band was ready to record Intercooler things had quieted down a tad more within the act.
The band was less angry and had also a new vocalist to introduce. Jimmi Thorsø was also replaced by Oberst - the latter initiated earlier as a session man. The former man had lost his life to cancer. Intercooler was mixed by John Custer (C.O.C., etc.) in the USA.
The album hit the streets late September of 1999. The band toured with Weissglut. The band split from Diehard and set up its own label. If You Were My Dog appeared in the summer of 2002 and featured Jonez on keyboards. Nassist Oberst left the band in early 2003 in order to relocate to the USA. Read more on Last.fm.
