Formed in 2007, Grethor began as a side project consisting of members from local Doom and Death Metal bands (including founding members Marcus and Bobby). Back then, the band played a raw brand of black metal in vain of the early 90's European scene. After a hiatus, Grethor reformed with a new line-up and took Grethor in a more melodic direction. In 2009, they released their demo, 'Monody for Artemis' to successful reception.
The lineup changed again in 2010 but the band continued to remain active. While searching for new members, the writing saw the band taking their previous black metal sound and injecting it with a healthy dose of death metal, creating a blackened death metal sound. By 2012 a full, stable lineup was assembled and Grethor returned with a vengeance. 2013 will see the release of the 'Galaxia Infinitum' EP. A representation of Grethor's crushing black/death metal assault, 'Galaxia' is a nod to Grethor's past and a harbringer of the band's future to come.
