Grimfist - Biography


This brutal metal band hails from Norway, and the collaboration between guitarist Ole Walaunet (Deride), drummer and ex-member Horgh (ex-Immortal, Hypocrisy), and vocalist Frediablo (ex-Necrophagia, Gorelord, Hemnur), resulted in their critically acclaimed debut album 'Ghouls Of Grandeur'. 10 tracks of insane, grinding metal of the highest order, with absolutely no middle ground. By combining elements of death metal, black metal, & old school heavy metal, they managed to create a highly original style of their own. With 'Ghouls Of Grandeur' Grimfist once again proved that Norway is still one of the top leading countries to produce high quality extreme metal. Founded October 2001, and signed to Candlelight Records. Their debut was recorded in Abyss Studios in Sweden, March 2003, and was mixed by Peter Tägtgren (Hypocrisy, Pain). With this album Grimfist set the standard for a new level of brutality, as well as the foundation for the bands musical future.

Two years later, and after the departure of drummer Horgh, Grimfist recorded the follow-up to Ghouls Of Grandeur.The highly anticipated 10 Steps To Hell was recorded in SubSonic Society, April 2005, and mixed in Fredman Studio. The three-piece further confirm their determination with a record that is molten and metal to the bloody core. 10 Steps To Hell takes the band to the next level combining speed, heaviness, and darker atmospheric elements in their sound. Introducing full time member Christian Svendsen on drums, this release will definitely kick your ass from hell & back !! The album was released October 2005, and like GOG, it quickly received loads of positive feedback and reviews from the fans and music press.
