Endon
Endon
Japanese experimental acoustic collective from Tokyo

First gathered in 2007 in order to bring a decisive rally on contemporary extreme music. In addition to a conventional band formation of vocal, guitars, and drums, there are two additional electronics performers, allowing them to create harsh, distinctive sounds in various chaotic mix of styles ranging from noise, hard core, black metal, industrial, to grind core, through an absolutely physical embodiment of pure hard core mentality. Their staging can be characterized as a plethora of physical and acoustic momentum, with destructive performances involving self-mutilation and bleeding, receiving high critical acclaims in the underground live scenes and are touted as one of the most exciting acts.
Graf Orlock
Graf Orlock
Graf Orlock is an American grindcore band from Los Angeles, California, United States. They are named after Graf Orlok from the film Nosferatu. Consisting members of hardcore punk bands Greyskull, Dangers, and Ghostlimb, Graf Orlock commonly uses audio snippets and script dialogue from action movies like The Terminator, Aliens, and RoboCop in all their songs; this mix has been jokingly called "cinema-grind."

The band formed in 2003 after "Jason Schmidt" and "Alan Hunter" were working on a screenplay while attending UCLA called Destination Time Yesterday which created controversy in the school for not referencing sources. The controversy erupted to a riot involving the Los Angeles Police Department.

After the riot, "Jason" and "Alan" were expelled from UCLA. Both "Jason" and "Alan" along with bassist "Sven Calhoun" and vocalist "Kalvin Kristoff" begun Graf Orlock with EPs and split albums. In 2006, they started a trilogy based around the controversial screenplay starting with Destination Time Yesterday, and in 2007 Destination Time Tomorrow EP was released; which was number 16 in Decibel magazine's Top 40 of 2007. The final chapter of the trilogy, Destination Time Today, was released in 2009.
