How PureGrainAudio Came to Be:

PureGrainAudio.com started as a simple drunken idea back in the early part of 2005. Two friends, Chris Gonda and Aaron Willschick, had become thoroughly frustrated with their stagnating attempt at a socio-political website, yet did not want to surrender their online endeavors. So, a few late nights later, the two dudes decided to form a site in the vein of their main passion... music... namely LOUD MUSIC! PureGrainAudio consequently began to take form and after the initial layout was finalised the site was officially launched during the last week of March, 2005.

With a total monthly visitor count of only 58 people (most of which were probably family and friends anyway) it was quite the horrific start to say the least. Nevertheless, the two dudes remained determined, pushed forward, and in four years have taken PureGrainAudio to the point where it now receives over 40,000 monthly visitors. From one very small-time interview with a local Canadian independent rock band to over 270 interviews with major label artists and independent musicians alike (along with over 1,300 total articles), it’s safe to say the site has come a long way in a short time.

PureGrainAudio has even blossomed from us two lowly and lonely staff members to over twenty amazing writers. Fortunately, with their crucial help and dedicated work, we now harbour the determination and energy necessary to propel PureGrainAudio to the very apex of independent rock and metal press. At this point, we don’t want to say much more in detail about the site, but we want to leave you with our promise: we promise to do everything in our power to continuously bring you new, exciting and unique music content. Thanks so much for your support!

Your friends in Loud! Music,

Chris & Aaron
