The first and only Angle Grinding Vocalist, Contortionist, & Certified Pyrotechnician, Tiffini Truth, brings you the G.R.I.N.D (Ground Right Into Dust) Show. Wearing steel plates all over her body she uses not 1 but 2, 5 inch angle grinders to turn herself into a singing light show. The grinder is the root of this show and you can hear its use as it is played during the recording session instead of a guitar.
There’s no question that Tiffini Truth makes unique-sounding metal music…in the literal sense! She uses angle grinders, screwdrivers and hammers, among other ‘instruments’, to back-up her voice. It broods, rips, and clatters in all the right places, mixing industrial beats and samples with soaring bluesy vocal overlays and echoing sound effects.
Tiffini Truth is probably an artist who hasn’t yet received the recognition that she deserves. Most people will soon realize that Tiffini has this incredible talent for putting out words and music in a way that other people are afraid or unable to do.
It is clear from the first vision of the videos, for the singles, “F.E.A.R” and “Make Me”, that she has worked long and hard to produce the kind of music that she does, and listening to her or watching her music videos is really well worth the time spent doing it.
The interpretation of the song, “F.E.A.R” (which stands for False Evidence Appearing Real) in the music video is incredible. She is articulate, intelligent, and can pinpoint exactly what people need to feel.
Overall, I have nothing but respect for this artist. She may be a rather scary and disturbing figure in her videos at times, but once you try to understand what she’s doing, you’ll get the hang of it. This is what I did, and it opened up my eyes to a new view of where music can actually go.

Songs like the deep, emotional, painful ballads such as “Make Me” or “To Bring You My Love” move me in such a way with their bare bone instrumentals, soul-flooding lyrics, and passionate vocals that I can honestly say they are among the most beautiful alternative songs I’ve ever heard.
This obviously is not mainstream music, or even meant for the masses. This is like appreciating Edward Munch’s painting, “The Scream”- a symbol of the suffering of the contemporary world, as opposed to a colorful canvas filled with Kadinsky’s beautiful, abstract, geometric strokes.
On first hearing Tiffini Truth’s music, several words sprung to mind; innovative, inspiring, original, landmark. She does something different and insightful that no one has done before, at least to my mind, and that already sets her apart.
Off set she looks like a Soul or R&B diva, and when she says, she’s on her GRIND, it takes on a whole new meaning! Once Tiffini is under the lights or in front of the camera, the transformation is totally epic. She is nothing like you expect, she is so much more!
Tiffini Truth is doing something new with her music influences, rather than mimicking anything before, she is bringing on a new era, to a new audience. The question is: “Are you ready for REAL metal music!”
