The beginning (1997) - Sharing since 1996 the band Tenebrous Dominancy in which performed the role of drummer and bassist respectively, Koraxid and Azarath founded Grievance in May 1997, with the desire of practicing modern Black Metal. The first demo arose in July, is a recording of an essay with a voice overdub on cassette audio. The demo was called "Por Entre a Escuridão Outonal". Koraxid Plays Drums and added Voices and Azarath plays Lead Guitar. The band's logo was designed in this summer, by Azarath. The band's name was given by Koraxid and comes from the lyrics of the track "The Burning Shadows of Silence" of the Album "In the Nightside Eclipse" from the Norwegian Black Metal Band Emperor. "... grievance of sadness, like the gift of sorrow."

The Experimental Times (1998-2000) - Grievance begins a new path, with the adding new members - Marco Tomé on Guitar, Azarath now plays Bass Guitar and voice. Koraxid keeps he's place in the drum throne, and the band is now accompanied by Sergio Pina on trumpet. The path of Black Metal seemed to have been put aside, now with a more experimental band, with a vast crossover metal style. The band started to play live in several places and festivals.

Azarath goes out of the country in 2000 and the band slows down its activity for several years, with only sporadic rehearsals with the original line-up.

The New Millenium Sessions (2006-2008) - Grievance is now divided into two countries: Portugal (Caldas da Rainha) and Spain (Algeciras). The band's lineup is redesigned, with the recruiting of Enjendro in Bass Guitar, Koraxid stays on drums and Azarath plays Guitar and handles the Voice. The second demo of the band is recorded, intitled "The New Millenium Sessions" with only two tracks, that demonstrate the efforts made in the creation of new music, with the band returning to it's original style - Black Metal. Two songs recorded in separate sessions, in 2006 and 2007, one in Algeciras (Spain) and another in Axe Farm Studios in Caldas da Rainha (Portugal). Due to the distance between the members, the band's activity slows down again...

Grievance Goes Solo (2011-Present) - In 2011, after several years of almost complete inactivity, Koraxid takes over the project, so that it may live on to see the light of day again, and release new material. This was made by mutual and friendly agreement with Azarath, as they both concluded that a band divided by 2 countries is very dificult to maintain, also both the members are very occupied with other activities. Now the band's future will be assured and Grievance will maintain its activity for years to come... Beware!
