Grotesque (After the Gramme) is a 1980 album by The Fall. It was critically received as a marked improvement over its predecessors both sonically and musically, and is cited as the band's first great album. The music is a departure from that of the previous albums, 1979's Live at the Witch Trials and Dragnet, introducing more drones and Velvet Underground-inspired riffing.
Grotesque was a Swedish death metal band formed in Gothenburg in September 1988 from the remains of Conquest by WÃ¥hlin (Necrolord). The band was however shortlived and recorded a few demos and a EP. After the demise of the band Lindberg and Svensson started At the Gates, while Necrolord created his own band Liers in Wait and focused more on creating artwork for several bands including Dissection and Emperor.
