GURD was formed back in early 1994 out of the ashes of the Swiss power-thrash metal legend Poltergeist. Stylistically, GURD decided to take a step into a rather different direction, as they preferred a more modern and crunchy sound to metal.

Between 1995 and 1998, they released 4 critically well-acclaimed albums ("gurD" 1995, "Addicted" 1995, "D-Fect" 1996, "Down The Drain" 1998)and played several tours and shows with acts like Slayer, Venom, Prong, Annihilator, The Spudmonsters, Biohazard, Destruction, Schweisser, Life Of Agony, Stuck Mojo, Pro-Pain or Such A Surge. The Dynamo Open-Air appearance in 1996 was an early highlight for GURD and secured them a new record deal with Century Media Records.

With their album "Bedlam" (2000), the band started to shift their musical
focus more and more towards their Thrash-Metal infuences. After the 2003 Album "Encounter" they released a CD/DVD package called "10 Years Of Addiction" to their 10th anniversary, filmed at their‚ home-club Z-7. Two albums and several tours later ("Bang!" 2006, "Your Drug Of Choice" 2008), they signed a deal with NoiseArt Records and released their latest album "Never Fail" in 2011, followed by a big european tour with Dark Tranquility and Eluveitie. In 2012 they appeared on the Metal Fest Festival Tour and had the opportunity to support Acts like Testament, Coroner, Soulfly and Prong.

2014 - The year of the 20th anniversary ! The new neck breaking record "Fake" is going to be released in Switzerland by LC-Records and a big anniversary show with exclusive appearances of ex-bandmembers on stage is planned for December 5th at the Z-7 in Pratteln.
