An amalgamation of noise, grindcore, metal, and depraved singularity, Agrinex is what happens when recognition is an afterthought and expression becomes the catalyst for inception and growth. This notion is enhanced by the band’s seemingly intentional lack of any kind of presence in the world outside of their live shows.
In a time when the WWW tells us what and how to feel about, well, everything, it’s refreshing to see a band raise a middle finger to all of the things about being in a band that don’t involve simply playing music.
That’s Agrinex. Pure music perfected in style, and devoid of image, aesthetic, a face. Get a glimpse for yourself on the Wooly’s stage at this year’s GDP.

Gross Domestic Product (GDP) is an all Iowa music festival held every spring, featuring musical artists from Greater Des Moines and the rest of Iowa. The 11th annual Gross Domestic Product will take place on May 28th, 2016 at venues around the East Village in Des Moines, Iowa! See the full line-up and details here. Gross Domestic Product highlights some of the original songwriters, performers, and recording artists in our community who make Iowa proud! GDP focuses primarily on young, new artists, those who are taking their first steps into creative self-expression through music and doing so in a positive, collaborative way. Each year we highlight a selection of new artists that our community has to offer, along with a few established groups that have had success building careers while living and working in the state we call home.
Established in spring 2006, GDP has featured over 100 musical acts, including House of Large Sizes, The Envy Corps, The Poison Control Center, Christopher the Conquered, Mumford’s, Facecage, and many more.
