Sweden's rocking electro behemoth Agent Side Grinder burst onto the scene in 2008 with their eponymous debut album and since then have not looked back. The music is an uncompromising, never-before-heard blend of industrial, post-punk, old style EBM and electro topped with the apocalyptic crooning of singer Kristoffer Grip. British music fanzine 20JazzFunkGreats called them a "sensation of uncomfortable pleasure" and genre forefathers Suicide invited them as a support act.
In recent years, Agent Side Grinder has moved towards a bigger and more textured sound. Their latest record Hardware sees the band once again stepping into their musical time-machine, while having a rendezvous with old masters such as Kraftwerk, Einsturzende Neubauten and Depeche Mode. The result is a reckless, rhythmic journey into a bleak future with zero compromise.
This special Canadian edition of the ‘Hardware’ album, comes with the EXCLUSIVE bonus – CD ‘SFTWR’, featuring remixes by Swedish electro/krautrock band /MF/MB, pop-punk-shoegazers Blackstrap, ambient-drone guru Jasper TX, EBM stalwarts Container 90 and a dozen others.
