Gruntsplatter, the primary project of Scott Candey, came to be in 1994 after about a year of experimenting. It has always been a maleable creature that hovers in the gray area between abrasive noise and dark ambient. The music has been called "noise ambient" and it's a term I embrace. Mood and depth of composition have continually been of the first importance for Gruntsplatter. By mixing the harsher elements and their details with the more atmospheric elements I feel I am best able to acheive what I am working toward.
