As previously reporte, GRIMFIST recently shot a video for the track "The Power" with David Palser (CRADLE OF FILTH, ANATHEMA, MY DYING BRIDE) and Morgana. Joining the group on bass for the video shoot was Robin Eaglestone (ex-CRADLE OF FILTH, CRIMINAL) from the U.K.
"The Power" comes off GRIMFIST's sophomore album, "10 Steps to Hell" (Candlelight) which has sold over 1,000 copies in Norway since its October release.
Recorded at Subsonic Society Studios (DISMEMBER, SUSPERIA) and mixed at Studio Fredman (IN FLAMES, THE HAUNTED), "Ten Steps to Hell" is said to be a "riff assault. . . guitars and vocals both firmly presented in-your-face style wrapped around an intense rhythm that recalls what made the initial thrash genre so energetic."
