Founded in 2004 by the Hay brotherhood (François, Edward and Matthieu), Garadh became a “real” band with the integration of Yves Mabillard (guitar/bass) as fourth member. A few months later, the swiss entity released a first recording as an 8-tracks demo (2005) with the aim to play their songs on live. After some remarkable live appearances, Garadh signed on the Swiss label Blacksmithmusic in 2007 and unveiled its debut full-length album “Ascent” one year later.
In January 2012, the band released its second album, called “The burden of absence” and produced in 2011 by Nicolas Haerri from the Black Bear Agency (Promethee). Alain Douches (Converge, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Mastodon) from the West West Side Music Studio handled the mastering in New York City, USA.
For the third full-length record, Garadh made the choice to work with Stéphane Chapelle & Laurent Volanthen from the Kitchen Studio in Geneva (Disagony, The Black Widow’s Project) and then to launch a crowdfunding campaign to raise the funds for this new effort. Called “Need a change”, this new one is released on spring 2015.
