Sweden's rocking electro behemoth Agent Side Grinder burst onto the scene in 2008 with their eponymous debut album and since then have not looked back. The music is an uncompromising, never-before-heard blend of industrial, post-punk, old style EBM and electro topped with the apocalyptic crooning of singer Kristoffer Grip. British music fanzine 20JazzFunkGreats called them a "sensation of uncomfortable pleasure" and genre forefathers Suicide invited them as a support act.

In recent years, Agent Side Grinder has moved towards a bigger and more textured sound. Their latest record Hardware sees the band once again stepping into their musical time-machine, while having a rendezvous with old masters such as Kraftwerk, Einsturzende Neubaten and Depeche Mode. The result is a reckless, rhythmic journey into a bleak future with zero compromise.

Hardware is released with the bonus CD SFTWR, featuring remixes by Swedish electro/krautrock band /MF/MB, pop-punk-shoegazers Blackstrap, ambient-drone guru Jasper TX, and a dozen others.


"One of the few bands, which is actually in a position to deal with the legacy of Joy Division." (Vice)

"Obsessive, nagging and quite magnificent." (5/5 DN)

"Maniacally monotonous, hammering on a fatal action of cold funk, with no trace of love." (4/5 Metro)

"A bass that seems constructed of iron ore, synth melodies that could have had Martin Gore as the author and a deserted atmosphere that makes concrete gray feel like the new black." (4/5 Expressen)

"One must admire the style, skill and detail of Agent Side Grinder's exposé over 35 years of synth history." (4/5 Nöjesguiden)

"Agent Side Grinder is ready to challenge the sounds of both the past and tomorrow." (Stereo Klang)

Agent Side Grinder & Henric de la Cour - Wolf Hour (Red Idiot Remix) (05:38)
"Wolf Hour is the hour between night and dawn. It is the hour when most people die, when sleep is deepest, when nightmares are most real. It is the hour when the sleepless are haunted by their deepest fear, when ghosts and demons are most powerful. It is also the hour when most children are born..."The track "Wolf Hour" (Red Idiot Remix) from Agent Side Grinder's digital single "Wolf Hour".
