Hand Of Grief


Hand of Grief is a 5 piece metal band that hails from Rotherham, South Yorkshire. Formed in mid 2006 they draw on a wide variety of influences, from thrash, hardcore, death metal, black metal, doom, sludge, right through to classic rock and blues, combining these influences to create a sonic sledgehammer that attacks the listener and has them nodding their head from opening note to closing riff.

Hand of Grief is a 5 piece metal band that hails from Rotherham, South Yorkshire. Formed in mid 2006 they draw on a wide variety of influences, from thrash, hardcore, death metal, black metal, doom, sludge, right through to classic rock and blues, combining these influences to create a sonic sledgehammer that attacks the listener and has them nodding their head from opening note to closing riff. After only 6 weeks a rough demo was cut, with the band doing all the work themselves, uploaded onto Myspace and then they set about doing what all bands love to do, i.e. gig. Several successful local shows were arranged and laid to waste by the quintets unrelenting sound and stage presence.

Unfortunately after about 6 months of travelling around the country one of the guitarists was forced to leave due to family commitments. Things looked bleak for a while but the band soldiered on writing heavier and heavier material until a replacement was found. It was early 2007 when Hand Of Grief turned to close personal friend Rob Pritchard and set about teaching him the songs and getting him out on the road as soon as possible. Once everything was in place 2007 continued much the same as 2006 with the band working hard organising and promoting gigs up and down the country. 2008 has been a good year for Hand Of Grief, they have covered more miles to play more shows than ever before, stepping up to the next level both performance wise and musically, reaping the benefits of their hard work. The new CD, once again recorded and produced by the band, ensures that the finished product is a true representation of Hand Of Grief.
