Conelrad was an American heavy metal duo from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The group, consisting of Jeff Gretz (of From Autumn to Ashes and Zao) and Adam McGregor (formerly of Creation Is Crucifixion), formed in early 2001. They played at Mr. Roboto Project in 2003,[2] and released a 7-inch record and a CD. In mid-2005, the duo went on a break. Sporadic activity since then has seen only two performances and the release of a 7-inch EP.[3]

Their style has been described as a mixture of Carcass and Lightning Bolt, and features spoken word as well as shrieks;[4] Pittsburgh Live referred to the band's music as "experimental lunacy".[5]
