Chelsea Grin is an American deathcore band from Salt Lake City, Utah. Formed in 2007, the group is currently signed to Artery Recordings and have released two EPs (Chelsea Grin in July 2008, and Evolve in June 2012) and two full-length albums, the latest being My Damnation (July 2011). The name of the band is derived from the torture method of the same name. Chelsea Grin was founded in Salt Lake City during March 2007 by vocalist, Alex Koehler and (former) guitarist Chris Kilbourn.
Prior to being named Chelsea Grin, Koehler and Kilbourn were in local Salt Lake City band named "Ahaziah", which was the forerunner band to Chelsea Grin. Ahaziah over time lost most of their original line-up, leading the group to change their name to begin something new. In March 2008, the band named themselves Chelsea Grin, naming themselves after the infamous torture maneuver known as the Glasgow smile or "Chelsea grin". New members recruited after the beginning of this new project were bassist Austin Marticorena and lead guitarist Michael Stafford.
Marticorena introduced Andrew Carlston to Chelsea Grin and assisted in rewriting their current songs as well as the creation of new material. This writing process lead to the tracks listed on their first release, Chelsea Grin EP, that was first streamed and released online through iTunes and then released in Compact Disc format worldwide on July 27, 2008. The band released the songs "Crewcabanger" and "Lifeless" as singles, both of which were received by listening audiences very well. Following the release of the self-titled EP in July 2008, the signing to Statik Factory Records, and a few small successful west coast tours, in April 2009, original drummer, Carlston, decided to return to the band replacing, Shilling, and guitar player, and original member Chris Killbourn then left the band to start his own record label, Matchless Records. ...show less
