History & Biography
The history of Grabak started with the death of FFF vocalist Mike P. in 1995. The band recruited Klepel to front FFF who joined Andre Reckelis, Lakowitz, and a guitarist called Dominic. Dominic soon left the band and was replaced by Andre Feder. Several live shows followed. The band's sole demo was self-titled and appeared in 1997. With a three-year contract in hand the band recorded its debut in the spring of 1999.

Soon though this black metal band fired its keyboardist to focus on a hard sound. Feder also quit.

The band was unusual in that they utilized two bass guitars until 2013.

The band announced in late 2001 that the next album would be entitled The Serpent Within Paradise and be available in mid-2003. In the meanwhile, the band had managed to catch up with its former manager and retrieve some $2000 CDN worth of cash and merchandise! M.E of Impact became the bassist in 2021. Guitarist R.B. returned in 2023 after an absence of nine years. The band was booked for Godless Mountain Open Air IV alongside Corrosive, Imperium Dekadenz, Eisregen, and Depression for May 2024. Next was Frostfeuernächte and Schwarzburger Metalwiese.

The name stands for one of the four serpents which destroyed the roots of the Yggdrasil tree in the Nordic myth Edda. Grabak terms itself Saxonian Black Metal.
