MOTOGRATER Has Reunited Again

Sure, why not?


The wave of nü-metal reunions continues, this time with a pretty deep cut – Motograter. Yes, the band that invented their own instrument (aptly named the Motograter) is coming back for an appearance at the Blue Ridge Rock Festival this September.

It's not clear who will be a part of the reunion, and it's not even worth trying to guess given the band's massive amount of members who have come and gone over the years. Motograter has not yet addressed the reunion, so all we've got is the below post from Blue Ridge Rock Festival.

Motograter has been very on-again, off-again over the years. The band originally formed in 1995 and then broke up in 2005. There was a reunion show in 2006, and then a full reunion between 2008 and 2011. Then came the second breakup, followed by (you guessed it) a reunion that lasted between 2013 and 2018. Motograter has only released two albums – a self-titled in 2003 and a sophomore effort called Desolation in 2017 – as well as three EPs between 1998 and 2009.

Motograter's big claim to fame was that they were fronted by Five Finger Death Punch vocalist Ivan Moody between 2002 and 2005. Moody appears on Motograter's debut self-titled album, which spawned songs for soundtracks like NASCAR Thunder 2004 and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

Oh, and if you're wondering what a Motograter is, it's that thing on the right in the below video.
