The musical arm of RUMPELSTILTSKIN GRINDER formed in early part of the new millennium, around 2002, with Matt Moore, Ryan Moll and Pat Battaglia requesting the services of Shawn Riley and Jason Sidote to round out the evil assault. After a vicious 7" and thousands of dollars in stolen goods, Sidote parted ways to pursue the diabolically pornographic XXX Maniak. The super sly Eli Shaika, Orange and Black Attack assassin and member of Witchaven, was decided to be the only choice as to take the reins of this dastardly quintet. New goals for heists have been laid out with RsG’s Relapse Records debut, Buried In The Front Yard… and the crime wave of the future has been realized with RUMPELSTILTSKIN GRINDER.
The band RUMPELSTILTSKIN GRINDER is the physical manifest of the criminal works and diabolical will of Society RsG. The band themselves are experienced criminals, and are a recruiting tool for the syndicate to get more members of the Orange and Black Attack. When asked why now was the time for the physical manifestation of RUMPELSTILTSKIN GRINDER, Shaika comments: “Today’s metal is filled with the false and boring. No one wants to hear the same old same old. Dudes started dressing like girls, and playing like dorks. Metal needed to become dangerous again, and with their superior diabolical burglar metal, RsG brings an edge back into the metal world not known since the days of burning churches and eating brains!”
The Orange and Black Attack are the enforcers of Society RsG. They are trained in both thievery and assassination, and take care of all the 'dirty work' for the syndicate. Any problems within the syndicate or with the band itself will be handled by the Orange and Black Attack. This group of individuals also lives in secret, but you can identify their membership by the symbol of the RUMPELSTILTSKIN (the little icon dude on RsG merch). New members are recruited at every show, and every person that buys a CD, or more importantly, buys a shirt, will be seen by the world as a proud member of the Orange and Black Attack.
