Welcome to GRIMsoc, Cardiff University’s best and longest running alternative and metal music society!
We pride ourselves on being the loudest music society the university has to offer, catering to fans of all genres of alternative music, whether that be Goth, Rock, Industrial, Metal or anything else! We meet regularly throughout the year, visiting various establishments throughout the city, as we are available to offer our members substantial discounts at Fuel - Cardiff’s finest alternative venue. We also let you know of any alternative/metal gigs happening in Cardiff and can usually arrange a group to go together!

GRIMsoc also holds plenty of yearly events. Along with attending gigs and alternative club nights, we will be organising and hosting activities such as pub crawls (including everyones favourite corpse paint pub crawl), parties, and our yearly mystery social! This year, we will also be trying to incorporate more non-alcoholic socials aswell, which could include things like goth market trips, movie nights and patch-sewing socials.

If you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask us and get in touch on our Facebook or instagram pages. We also have a discord! We hope to rock out and headbang with you soon!
