Fast and Hard New School Punk —The Grenma
'The Grenma' is a skatepunk trio from Budapest, Hungary, formed in 2004 by Csongi (guitar, vocals), Dóri (bass) and Matyi (drums).
Built on the basis of high school friendship and mutual musical influences, the band found its own sound by mixing classic skatepunk with modern pop-punk: fast and powerful riffs, catchy melodies and smart lyrics.
The first few years' underground success, heavy touring and quickly growing fanbase caught the attention of media and major record labels. After wining Bravo magazine’s 'Album of the year 2009', more songs got played on radio, videos got on TV, fans kept coming, shows got bigger, and with hard work 'The Grenma' has managed to became the biggest and most successful new-school punk band in Hungary.
