Gorilla Angreb was a punk band from Copenhagen in Denmark, it originated from the scene around the Ungdomshuset. The band was formed after the Danish punkband Amdi Petersens Armé was dissolved in 2002. Peter from Amdi Petersens Armé started the band with Mai, Banger and Retardo (who got his name after having played in Danish punk band Los Retardos). Thomas and Peter had originally formed the band in the autumn of 1999 as a sort of pet project, but after 2002 the band began to be a real fulltime project.

Band history

Gorilla Angreb played a melodic punk rock with dashes of garage punk. The lyrics were all in Danish.

The first release was a yellow vinyl single released by Danish label (now defunct) Kick'n'Punch. It created som stir in the punkscene, and received favorable reviews in the American punk magazine Maximumrocknroll. The interest for Danish hardcore had been increasing in the US since Amdi Petersens Armé had been touring that country, and Gorilla Angreb and fellow Ungdomshuset band No hope for the kids only increased that interest with their releases [ [http://www.sailorjerry.com/feature.php?n=music&r=348 No hope for the kids US tour] ] [ [http://www.dustedmagazine.com/features/484 Gorilla Angreb is favorably reviewed in dusted fanzine] ] .

The interest eventually in 2007 took the band on a tour of Japan as well.

2007 a Hjernespind Records release of a compilation of former releases was made available.

31st of july 2007 Mai announced that she was leaving the band [ [http://www.myspace.com/gorillaangreb Announcement on Gorilla angrebs Myspace.com page] ] . Following this the band has announced its break-up.
