Intro 

G.R.I.M. is what happens when to souls share the same thougt, at the same time, without knowing that the other person has had that thougt it, and then suddenly mentions it for each other.

G.R.I.M is a creative outlet for all the dark and gloomy stuff that was hidden in the drawer, labled «doesn't fit in», as in «doesn't fit the profile of our current bands».

Gimse once told Dan Are at a party: «I have some really dark lyrics». It only took a couple of months before his e-mail was filled with heavy, gloomy and melancholical riffs.

So Gimse and Dan Are summoned their bandmates in the eclectic musical konglomerate, Neverton United, and suddenly, the doom and gloom of G.R.I.M. was ready for the public.

The debut album has been recorded and mixed - and is currently I queued for mastering.

The release date will be November 1st.


The first Album from G.R.I.M: «Descensus ad Inferos - Shades of Sheol»

The album is a philosophical exercise… 

A thought…

A feeling… 

It grows steadily throughout the 40 minutes of lyrics full of despair over a tapestry of dark and heavy guitar riffs and blasting drums. 

The album conjures a sensation of gloom and prophecies of doom… to the point where we all know this is going to hell in a handbasket - maybe not at terminal velocity - but it will take you there at a slow and steady pace.

Misanthropology: «I like humans on an individual level. When they form groups, it becomes more complicated» (an approximated translation of Christoffer Nielsen).
