Grimus is the name of at least three different artists:
1. A Romanian alternative rock band from Cluj-Napoca.
2. An American melodic deathcore band from Elizabeth New Jersey.
3. An Australian artist named Pierre Proske. 1. The alternative rock band from Cluj-Napoca, Romania. Grimus is the (approximate) anagram of the word "simurgh" (a gigantic bird in Persian mythology). It is also the first novel of the Indian-born writer Salman Rushdie who created this anagram himself. The abstruse and tyrannical character of the novel inspired the name of the band.
