Grimner Frost Mot Eld on Limited Edition LP
Sweden's six-headed herd Grimner incorporate folk instruments such as flutes, Swedish bagpipes and mandola into their unique melodic, yet aggressive brand of metal. With lyrics that honor the norse gods and fallen warriors of old, they have taken enthusiasts of both metal and folk music by storm. With some songs dark and brooding; others fast, jovial and folkish, Grimner will never fail to entertain.
In 2008, Grimner was conceived in the Swedish town Motala by lead guitarist and vocalist Ted Sjulmark together with drummer Henry Persson. With the line-up changing throughout the years, the six housecarls you now see is Grimner. The first demo "A Call For Battle" (2010) was sung explicitly in English but was soon to be replaced by their native tongue Swedish. With the EPs Färd (2010) and De Kom Från Norr (2015) together with their debut album Blodshymner (2014) under their belt, Grimner has so far conquered the lands of Germany, Denmark, Holland, Belgium, and Sweden.
In March 2016, Grimner will release the follow-up full length album Frost Mot Eld on Despotz Records. This album will be telling the story of parts of Ragnarök, accompanied by even more catchy arrangements than previously produced by the band. The 10-track set definitely takes Grimner one step forward in terms of songwriting and conveying the pagan feel. One can expect some epic tracks on this release!
