THE GROTESQUERY was formed in early 2009, when musician ROGGA JOHANSSON and vocalist KAM LEE started talking just after finishing up work on their Horror/Gore Death band BONE GNAWERs debut album. They had a several talks about creating a new band that would base it's lyrical themes on the dark supernatural and creating a sort of 'concept' type album. With lyrics based on stories by H.P. Lovecraft's Macabre Tales, Ghost stories & poems by Ambrose Bierce & Edgar Allan Poe, the occult, the paranormal, the supernatural, all the morbid horrid terrors hidden in the dark places of the earth and those things that go bump in the night! And to do it as a project with the type of music highly influenced from the brutal style of early 90's death metal bands - with a touch of the avant-garde and an unorthodox and experimental feel. And now those conversations have become a reality in the form of the band called: THE GROTESQUERY! Keeping with traditional 90's "old school death metal style and sound" and forming a haunting atmosphere and chilling story line, Kam has crafted a gothic horror tale within his lyrics around ten dynamic, intense, and morbidly atmospheric death metal music tracks written by Rogga. With the fantastic addition of master bass player Johan Berglund from the band THIS HAVEN and the intense percussion skills of master Brynjar Helgeton of the band LIKLUKT. THE GROTESQUERY is born from out of the grave! So prepare yourself to be taken on a ghastly morbid journey of death, doom, and self destruction!
