Santa Cruz

On September 30, 2023, the new album from Dutch thrashmetal band Grindpad will be released, called ‘Finger Collector Crew’.

This new record is their fifth EP (previously they have already released four EPs and a long player) and it will be released as a digital CD, as a physical CD and as a vinyl (and this vinyl version contains their fourth EP ‘Sharkbite’ on the B- Side). This new EP will be released on September 30, 2023 via Iron Shield Records.
( Thrash / Metal ) 

Standing tall for nearly two decades now, Grindpad keeps on doing what it does best: play METAL. Not caring about the trends that come and, mainly, go.

Metal as it once was meant to be: aggressive, violent, fun.

With their chugging Bay Area-like Thrash, their signature Ed Repka artwork and their no holds barred live shows, they’ve become the Kings of Dutch Thrashmetal.

Metalfans know by now: when the Shark Crew plays, it’s time for beer, inflatable sharks and a big- ass moshpit.

With their Sharkbite! EP (2017) being called “The number 1 underground Thrash album of the last decade”, their critically acclaimed full length Violence (2020) and their upcoming 2023 EP Finger Collector Crew in hand, Grindpad guarantees to Thrash the stages.

Grindpad likes to thank everyone for their hard work, love and passion for the band & heavy music in general.

And a big THANKS to you all, our fans.

Keep supporting Thrashmetal and we hope to keep meeting as many of you as possible.

Long live The Shark Crew, long live Thrash!!
