Initially a metallic crust punk band formed 1985/86 by [a1311230] and [a1311233] (members of Stone the Crowz) and Jel and [a1311231] (both in The Proudhons). Early on known as Tyrants of Hate, the band changed name to Axegrinder in 1986. Their crust/thrash style was influenced by [a73168], but has also been compared to both [a233658] and [a251788].
In 1987, after the Grind Your Enemy demo, drummer Jel left and was replaced by [a1311232] for the live demo.The band then signed with [l14465], off the back of there Squat Tape demo, where they released the track 'Where Evil Dwells' on the A Vile Peace compilation, and then recorded [m=60214]. Axegrinder also contributed two tracks to the Vile Visions compilation VHS, 'Evilution' and (new song) 'Requi-Anthem', both filmed at Queens Hall, Bradford, 1990, by which time Cliff Evans had joined the band.
Axegrinder folded in 1991. While Evans formed death metal band Flesh sometime later, the other four members promptly formed Voivod-clones Wartech.
