Gruth


Rooted in the Nordic darkness of metal, industrial and classical music, Gruth is the experimental music project of Juha Puuperä. Drawing influence from Norwegian black metal, UK sound system culture and Italian horror cinema of the 70s, Gruth incorporates pitch black and aggressive textures into his sonic palette, whether in the form of forward-thinking techno, ritual ambient or doom industrial.

So far, the sound of Gruth has reached events such as Berlin Atonal and Insomnia Festival in Norway; a host of clubs in Berlin, including Tresor Berlin and Griessmühle; and more recently, nightclubs of São Paulo, Brazil: Trackers and ZIG. In addition, Gruth has been featured in line-ups alongside artists the likes of Juan Atkins, Samuel Kerridge, Rrose, Dasha Rush and ATEQ.

Support from the scene has been strong as Gruth has released his first 12” in April on Tormenta Electrica Records, a label based in Montevideo, Uruguay. Future Gruth projects include a sleep/nightmare concert where the crowd is invited to sleep, as well as a contemporary experimental ensemble made up of various metal, grindcore and experimental musicians in São Paulo.
