Born in Cuneo (Northern Italy) in Summer 2008, featuring two members from Italian brutal death band Septycal Gorge, Ape Unit has always been focused on mixing grinding powerviolence, speed and noisy dissonant riffs, inspired by well-known acts such as Terrorizer, Siege and early Napalm Death, with sparks of insanity brought by bands like The Jesus Lizard and Arab on Radar.
After an appearance on some compilation, they release their first EP, Albert, in 2010.
After some line up changes, in September 2012 a DIY conspiracy allows the monkey collective to release their first album, Unforgivable Holidays, under coproduction of TADCA Records and Grindpromotion.The release is well promoted with lots of concerts, including a stunning performance at Obscene Extreme Fest in 2013, as well as gigs with all star bands like Ratos De Porao, Cripple Bastards and Napaalm Death.
In late 2013, because of a muscolar problem, Los decide to move on guitar, and Steve from thrash metal act Endovein joined the band.
Actually the band is playing around and is writing new material for a forthcoming release, out in 2015.
