Grate Gothenburg, Sweden

GRATE was formed in 2001 and "I For One" was released. The music was a mix of noise rock and sludge, but always with a raw metal coating. Though it's Nick Holmquists solo project, he teamed up with Dale Whitaker (drums) and Patrik Akterhall (bass guitar) and released "What You Think" in 2003. GRATE has shared the stage with bands like Abandon, Burst, 4 Track Demons, Kid Commando and many more. ... more

Track Name: Bailing Town
Once I regret it I know I'm lost
Always aware of the cost
If I am stupid enough to change my mind
No longer one of a kind

I'll take this mask off
Show you disgrace
Truth's sometimes better
than a happy face

I'll make you suffer
I'll make you pay
Give everything to blow you away

What comes around goes around
Not this time, I'm bailing town

I'd blow my whole life in just one place
Hide tears in curious ways
I'd burn my candle at both ends
Can't stay, can't lie to myself

Inside this slipstream
Pray for release
I'd better move on
before I freeze

There's no comfort
No safety guaranteed
Bomb this place, I'm bailing town
Track Name: J. F. Ch.
Is this how it feels to be raped?
Is this how it feels to be screwed
by both sides?

Is this how it feels to be fucked up?
Is this how it feels to be fucked
in every sense?

Trick myself with lies
Must give up those lies
My own sacrifice
Jesus Fucking Christ

So, this is how it feels to be raped?
Because this is how it feels when
friends die!

How come the absence of one
can prove the gain of another?

If you only knew
what I'm going through
I'm losing what I just found
I'm losing you…
Track Name: All The Terror You Can Eat
Can’t stop this
wont stop this
Pounding you into a pulp

Open wide,
All that you can eat
Open wide,
All the terror you can eat

You go down
on your knees
Gasp and frown
pray or please

Don’t stop me
Get all the pride out
Get it out
Track Name: Wont Cry
What do you want?
What do you need?
What do you want from me?
I used to be free
Should’ve thought it over
Applied common sense
Voluntary detention
Making false amends

Surprise, surprise
You caught my eye
Surprise, surprise
Now I wont cry nomore

What do I want?
What do I need?
Back to square one
One mouth to feed
I felt lonely then
Now I am alone
What’s done is done
And done by choice

Surprise, surprise
Cut out my eyes
Surprise, surprise
Now I wont cry nomore
Track Name: Yesterday Never Happened
Nothing’s like a chug
when you’re completely dry
Then you see the bulging sheets
Memories, come back
I need complete recall
where have I put my sticky tongue?

Today is just a pick-me-up
Tomorrow will be fine
Today I need hair o’ the dog

Had all figured out
All humans are alike
Offer one; taking two
To procreate
love is a poor excuse
Say what you will; It must come off

Today is just a pick-me-up
Tomorrow will be fine
Today I need hair o’ the dog
Yesterday never happened
Track Name: Benelli
I feel nothing
I am numb

But don't you come closer
Don't you come near
I'll blow you right out of my head

Don't know what happened
Don't know why you're here
I wish I could wish I were dead

When all is said
When all is done
There's only me
And my Benelli

They'll say that I fucked her
That I need a doctor
Paradise chinks in my hands

I'm spilling my guts,
I do not hate hers
I'd rather go out with a bang

Got something to hide
Except for me
And my Benelli
Track Name: Ducktape And Razorblades
Take my time on your body
Nothing's going to waste
I don't want you dead
Just want to kill you

Relation's no longer strained
I'll cut your tears away

You don't know, don't know me
You only think you do, but
You don't know me

I'll keep it like a shrine
In a temple of my own
There, you crossed the line
Now, some one's got to pay

Do what I always do:
Keep it to myself

Your body
Track Name: The Cause And Solution Of All Problems
Just take it
but you need more
It’s perfect
Better than before

Feels so good
Must be bad
I’m so happy
Ends up sad

Last orders
The whole table sips
Make room for more
Get some foam on those lips

Light of my life
Need no persuasion
Light of my life, love of my life
Need no evasion
Track Name: Stateless
I will locate
the proper source
from which I’m sure to emanate
Don’t feel inane,
don’t lie prostrate
I have a past to eradicate

I’m stateless, I’m stateless

I don’t belong
where I’m from
and I’m a stranger where I’ve come
Could I adapt
to culture sways?
They’re fucking bores and prone to change

Scratch the surface of a window greased
Cleaned a part of it at least
Looking out and see myself
I am staring at myself

I will locate
the proper source
from which I’m sure to emanate
Stuck to my shoe,
can’t scrape it off
My mind was set to “eradicate”
