freejazzy Unusual project. Gotta listen to it even if you don't like this artificial/organic mix of drums, voices and electronis. Everything is produced so tight and highly energetic. I think it's fun and very entertaining. Favorite track: I'm Tweeked.

FullMetalWolle just awesome. I can't believe some of the sounds really originate from a human's vocalchords. also: HE sings all of this? Unbelieveable Favorite track: Grebchestra.

birmoon Jesus knows me almost brought me to tears, Mrs. Thomas made me burst in laughter and Grebchestra opened my mind to the possibilities of music again. Great musicianship, nothing bad to say. Thanks :) Favorite track: Grebchestra.
  • Listening to the album becomes a fascinating ride through heavy drum-patterns, webs of vocals, arias, freaky sounds, pumping basses and mighty choirs. „Grebfruit 2“ is not a typical solo-album. It is not what might be expected from a musician who is a drummer foremost – it is an engaging tour de force of a broad musical mind.

Echo Jazz Gewinner Benny Greb hat im Jahre 2005 mit seinem Album Grebfruit 1 ein wahres Beben in der Drummer Szene ausgelöst. Nun folgt mit dem Album Grebfruit 2 - geprägt von Stimme und Drums - ein weit reiferes Folgewerk. So ist das Hören des Albums ein Ritt durch dicke Drum Pattern, Stimmgeflechte, Opernarien, Freak Sounds, pumpende Bässe und mächtige Chöre. Grebfruit 2 ist eine Produktion, wie man Sie von einem Drummer nicht erwarten kann. Es treten vollkommen eigenständige Klangwelten hervor, die selbst drei Cover Songs zu integrieren wissen. Alle Songs haben Charakter und Kante und sind eine Aufforderung zum mehrfachen Hören. Das Artwork des Albums scheint Sinnbild dessen zu sein: Benny Greb vermag aus vielen Kehlen zu singen und doch entspringt das Klanguniversum nur einem Kopf.
