Graf Orlock is an American grindcore band from Los Angeles, California, United States. They are named after Graf Orlok from the film Nosferatu. Consisting members of hardcore punk bands Greyskull, Dangers, and Ghostlimb, Graf Orlock commonly uses audio snippets and script dialogue from action movies like The Terminator, Aliens, and RoboCop in all their songs; this mix has been jokingly called "cinema-grind."
The band formed in 2003 after "Jason Schmidt" and "Alan Hunter" were working on a screenplay while attending UCLA called Destination Time Yesterday which created controversy in the school for not referencing sources. The controversy erupted to a riot involving the Los Angeles Police Department.
After the riot, "Jason" and "Alan" were expelled from UCLA. Both "Jason" and "Alan" along with bassist "Sven Calhoun" and vocalist "Kalvin Kristoff" begun Graf Orlock with EPs and split albums. In 2006, they started a trilogy based around the controversial screenplay starting with Destination Time Yesterday, and in 2007 Destination Time Tomorrow EP was released; which was number 16 in Decibel magazine's Top 40 of 2007. The final chapter of the trilogy, Destination Time Today, was released in 2009.
