The deathcore band Chelsea Grin formed in Salt Lake City, Utah, US in 2007 and has been cranking out some of the heaviest, grittiest albums in their genre.

Lead vocalist Alex Koehler was formerly in a band called Ahaziah, but once the band went through some lineup changes the members of the band started to call themselves Chelsea Grin. The band consists of six members, which allows them to accomplish musically intricate compositions. The band has three guitarists, permitting them to create a heavy rhythmic sound while the lead guitarist plays complicated riffs.

Not long after the band’s formation, they released their self-titled EP in 2008, which was released on Statik Factory Records. The band would later sign to Artery Recordings and release their debut album “Desolation of Eden” in 2010. Their debut album was produced by Tim Lambesis from the band As I Lay Dying and did well on the charts reaching the No. 21 spot on the Top Heatseekers chart. The success of their album allowed the band to pursue a full US tour as well as garnered them praise in the “Alternative Press”.

In 2011 the band released their second studio album “My Damnation”, which showed Chelsea Grin stretching their creative abilities. The album focuses on lyrical themes pertaining to the afterlife and musically it featured more intricate guitar riffs and solos. The album also did well on the charts reaching the No. 6 spot on the US Billboard Hard Rock Albums chart.

The band released their third studio album “Ashes to Ashes” in 2014, which contained the singles “Letters”, “Angels Shall Sin, Demons Shall Pray”, and “Playing with Fire”. The album also did well on the charts reaching No. 27 on the US Billboard 200. Although the band mainly records original material, they released a cover of the song “Right Now” by Korn.

Chelsea Grin has taken influence from many bands such as Deftones, Slayer, Atreyu, and Megadeth. Their songs cover a variety of metal sounds ranging from doom metal to symphonic metal, but whatever they end up producing is sure to be heavy. The band is constantly touring and have played many sold out concerts while touring with bands such as Emmure, Born of Osiris, Parkway Drive, and Every Time I Die. They have also been known to play festivals such as Vans Warped Tour.
