We are Grand Ultra from Nottingham UK. We play rock and metal of various shades raging from classic 80s to heavier modern styles and different stops in between. To throw some names out we love bands like The winery dogs, avenged sevenfold, lynch mob, megadeth and whitesnake. We do this because quite frankly, we feel like we don’t have any other choice. There are lots of great bands out there but not enough and defintely not making what we make. It’s what we love and dream to live.
The band formed after Justin and Joe met on a musician site much like a dating site. They shared many of the same influences and after some riffs and vocals we’re exchanged discovered they we’re a perfect match. Gary and Stu were friends of Joe and after they heard the ideas were along for the ride. We don’t model ourself after anyone else and that give us a freedom to make a unique blend of styles that is genuinely hard to describe. I believe this in itself means we’re doing something right and forging our own style.
