Norway's GRIMFIST have uploaded an eight-minute MP3 file containing samples from their upcoming second album, "10 Steps to Hell", due on October 4 via Candlelight Records (one day earlier internationally). Check it out at www.grimfist.com.
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."
Formed in 2001, GRIMFIST's debut album, "Ghouls of Grandeur", featured original drummer Horgh (HYPOCRISY, ex-IMMORTAL). Returning with "Ten Steps to Hell", this three-piece — guitarist Ole Walaunet, vocalist Frediablo and new drummer, Christian Svendsen — further confirm their determination with a record that is "molten and metal to the bloody core," according to a press release.
"Ten Steps to Hell" track listing:
01. The Power
02. Separation of My Soul
03. Breed Apart
04. Unborn (Intro)
06. The Ashes of the Gods
07. Reep the Fire
08. Touched by a Shadow of Evil
09. Tools of the Trade
10. Fight or Die
GRIMFIST recently shot videos for two songs from the upcoming album 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.
