Girl Scout Hand Grenade has three things going for it as a band, in my book:
- They’re a death metal band with a kind of punkish rhythmic
- They have a really cool name
- They have a chick lead singer
The band’s motto is “We Are Goats in a Word Full of Sheep Metal.”
I mean comon. How killer is that? For some reason, I totally get wood when I see a chick singing death metal. When they’re actually good at it? The big O comes.
The band is from Michigan. You can see their MySpace at this link. They have a full album out and have been around long enough to establish that they aren’t some garage band with a bunch of lame tunes for your wedding.
Girl Scount Hand Grenade is pretty hard core and definitely loud. Some of their stuff is pretty boilerplate death/grind core, but lots of others jump out and say “mosh, f’er, mosh.” Then I wish I hadn’t cut my hair and try to spin it anyway.
When you go to their page, try Birth of the Resistance for a cool song with some changeups and harsh thrashing. Try Raul Julia is Dead for something completely different you probably won’t expect from a death metal band. Great tune.
Below is probably my favorite, though, called Avoid Embrace. Enjoy!
