The feedback was impressive. A professional Videoclip has been produced for the song MONSTER It got released on the MAXIMUM METAL DVD at the German METAL HAMMER magazine. The song was on the free-magazine-CD of the legendary TERRORIZER MAGAZINE (UK) too!

GRAND MASSIVE played in August 2009 at the legendary WACKEN ROCKS SOUTH Festival on the WET-STAGE with bands like SLAYER, VOLBEAT, IN EXTREMO, EDGUY, DORO, GRAVE DIGGER and many more. Juergen got replaced on guitar by the ex-Duster 69 drummer Peter Wiesenbacher in 2011. After the recording of new material and some gig offers, the band decided to replace Tony on vocals to be free for concerts and new recordings. Alex (FROM CONSTANT VISIONS – Bullet Records / Soulfood) joined the band then on vocals. After a longtime friendship with John Lancaster from CHUM (Huntington / USA) and the endless love for their debut album DEAD TO THE WORLD out on CENTURY MEDIA RECORDS, Jochen asked John for a co-operation. John liked the new GRAND MASSIVE material and did the lyrics and vocals for the song SLEEPWALKER. GOING INTO RED is a cover-version from Germany`s Stoner Rockers DUSTER 69 and after they split up in 2007 it has been released posthum on the Split 7“ together with HOUSE OF BROKEN PROMISES (ex-Unida).
