There's not much known about this band, except that it's a duo whose members are involved in several other extremely obscure projects. Their name, which is a misspelled transliteration of "грозный град" ("terrific city"), is a rather unexpected name for a band based out of California, and it places them in line with other oddly named noise projects that I posted here over the last few days. According to my friend who's a fan of the Metal Gear Solid series, it was taken from MGS3: Snake Eater (but it was spelled correctly in the game).

I personally have never played any games in the MGS series, but everything developed by Hideo Kojima seems to be extremely weird in the good old "Japanese" way, so I might try to find some time to check it out in the future. As for this album, it presents more than a hour of unrelenting noisy black metal with a heavy punk influence. Not for the weak ears.
