Syracuse, New York’s Freya (Earth Crisis, et al) have premiered their forthcoming abum, Grim, at New Noise Magazine. The record will officially be released this Friday, September 30, via Fast Break! Records and can be purchased here. Frontman Karl Buechner said of the album:
“[Brendon, guitarist]Flynn’s songwriting and all of the artwork he painted for the album forcefully project the darkness and severity of the dual themes of conflict and survival. After stepping back from Grim that’s the impression the collection of lyrical stories leaves me with overall. The power of the simple warnings in the cautionary folktales that we all grew up with still resonate. Times change but humans with all of their flaws ranging from minor irksome offenses all the way down to those with dangerous and sadistic obsessions do not. Tommy[Turner, guitarist] and Dirk[Verbeuren, drummer] brought some serious intensity to Grim and every day of composing and refining was a fun challenge bringing this vision to life together. Thanks to Dave Earsplit and all at Fast Break! Records for gettingGrim out there and of course much thanks to all who support and appreciate Freya. The future is grim!”
