DISGRACE was founded in 1987 with a modest reason to become one of the hardest metal bands ever. In the early days there was not much success, except on couple of occasions, namely; their first 7”EP in 1990 which sold 2.000 copies and two years later the infamous “Grey Misery” LP selling at least five times as much. After the album band recorded new album, “Volume Two” - but it never came out because of disappearance of the record company.
1994 was the year of the change. DISGRACE’s music style took a change towards Rock’n’Roll. They released “Vacuum Horror, Horror Vacuum” MCD 1994 and it started a new era, which continues til today.
Soon after the release of “Vacuum Horror, Horror Vacuum” MCD the band went back into studio. After a hectic week in the city of Pori, with producer Pentti Dassum the next album “Superhuman Dome” was ready and later released in January 1996 by a German label Morbid Records. Right after the release, the band decided to hire Jimbo Golf to play guitar on their next European tour, a move that enabled Il Cattivo Doctore Sangria to concentrate solely on vocals.
Morbid Records was more interested in releasing Metal records and DISGRACE was more of an action Rock’n’Roll kind of a band. A year after the release of “Superhuman Dome”, DISGRACE entered into the studio once again. They had rented a mansion for two weeks to record and produce the next album “If You’re Looking for Trouble” in 1998. The record itself got great reviews and the band continues touring in Europe. After the second tour in the Netherlands & Germany the band compose some tracks, go to studio and record a new album called “Turku” and it came out 2001.
Right after the album came out and band was supposed to go on European tour with Sweatmaster, bassplayer C.C.Less decided to retire from the band after 11 years work. In panic he was replaced by Mr. Nuclear Powerplant a.k.a. A-Histus a.k.a. Cash Cow.
After a long break, they worked with the amazing Pentti Dassum again. The result, “Born Tired”, was a genius and brilliant Rock’n’Roll album, with catchy melodies, raw rocknroll power and soulful music. Right after the release, a new member Mr. Franco Messerschmitt joined to play bass, replacing the mysterious Mr. U.K.K.s half a year bass duty in DISGRACE.
DISGRACE continued the world tour in 2004 after releasing the highly praised “Born Tired” album. After the Euro-tour 2004 Mr. Bald Revenger a.k.a. Anal Chimpanzee a.k.a. DJ Motherfukker decided to stay in Berlin instead of moving back to the Finland. Fast Ola (formerly known as Oliver Lawny) replaced him, but was soon replaced by a new guitarist Mr. Leroy Brown. And right after that 2005 the band made its last longer Eurotour with The Mutants.
After that, the band took a long break, because of other projects of new and old band members. But after 6 years... they are back! November 2010 the band is in its best fit releasing a new album “Hammer & Nails.
