Grimreaper: With a descent into the underworld to confront your own self….

Grimreaper - Catastrophe Of The Tragic Melancholies

Logan Grimm is the man behind the band Grimmreaper and this is a modern metal project and Grimm is the sole musician and plays all of the instruments. Grimm explore the more technical part of metal but also fuses some healthy dozes of atmospheric metal but the music is mostly accessible.

Grimm present Grimmreaper in this way, «Deriving from many metal genres, Grimmreaper is the solo project of Logan Grimm, a multimedia experiment, and a journey into the human capacity for good and evil».

Grimmreaper continues to tantalize listeners with the second single Catastrophe Of The Tragic Melancholies, which is taken off the upcoming album The Tragedy Of Being.

Calculated and cold, yet maintaining a glimmer of heartfelt hope, Grimmreaper wants to take listeners on an emotional and spiritual wave, from hopelessness in the pounding drums and echoing screams to happiness found in the grooves of the music and the hope of the lyrics.

Lyrically, Grimmreaper writes about what seems to be the default condition to consciousness, suffering. Humans seem to be presented with a world rife with torment and agony. The single, Catastrophe Of The Tragic Melancholies attempt to make contact with Grimm’s shadow, from a Jungian perspective. He explains further:

«This is a naked look into the worst parts of my soul, my shadow, the parts of my soul and fantasies that I want to pretend don’t exist. Carl Jung popularized the idea of the shadow, the part of yourself you don’t want to see. Your dark fantasies, your malevolence, the things you turn a blind eye to, those make up the shadow, in a broad sense. This song is what happened when I realized I was capable of reprehensible actions, and that I could even enjoy them. I made contact with my shadow. The lyrics talk about how I have realized I’m not a good person, and I was very naive to think I was».

The Tragedy Of Being is a descent into the underworld to confront your own self. As a concept album, the tracks are listed in a very particular order to give a certain experience, but at the same time, every song is built to stand on its own as a powerful expression.

Om Ulf Backstrøm (5526 Artikler)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
