Fast Break! Records has confirmed the label's first release for long-running Syracuse-based metal outfit, FREYA, announcing the September unveiling of the band's Grim LP.

Fortified by the sidewinding winds and mercurial lakes of the land with the largest sinking mall, FREYA stands as an immovable heavy metal monolith. Giant serpentine guitar riffs tightly coil around vast passages of tension and melody, creating the band's upcoming fifth studio full-length, Grim. Expanding upon the thematic scope of their previous release, Paragon Of The Crucible, their latest installment derives inspiration from the historical origins of Grimm folktales. Grizzled veteran founding frontman, Karl Buechner (EARTH CRISIS, THE PATH OF RESISTANCE) breathes life into these cautionary tales, delving deep into their macabre realities and the harsh circumstances of their genesis. Newly-recruited drummer Dirk Verbeuren (MEGADETH, SOILWORK), the one-man stampede of savagery, lends his machine gun percussive virtuosity to the album, his complex timing and imagination a perfect complement to the diverse riff-work of guitarists Brendon Flynn and Thom Turner.

Grim was once again mixed and mastered by Jason "Jocko" Randall at More Sound Recording Studio in Syracuse, and features the intense graphic cover artwork by FREYA's Brendon Flynn. The album will be released through Pennsylvania's Fastbreak! Records on September 30th, 2016.

See a trailer for Grim featuring the opening track "The Alchemist" now below.

Stand by for additional audio premieres, pressing info, preorders, and much more to be released in the days ahead.

Grim Track Listing:

  • "The Alchemist"
  • "The Spectre Of The Plague"
  • "The Sentinel"
  • "Gnawing From Inside"
  • "Skeleton's Key"
  • "To Pyre With Them All"
  • "Hunter In The Dark"
  • "Swallowed Alive"
  • "To Burgeon Feathered Wings"
  • "The Silken Web"
  • "Eyes Of Malevolence"
Since 2001, FREYA has crossed metal and hardcore audiences on stage and on record with a plethora of mind-expanding works, incorporating fantasy and reality with thunderous grooves. The band released their debut album, As The Last Light Drains, in 2003 through Victory Records, where they would remain signed for years to follow. Their second release came in the form of a split with Hoods the following year. Their second album, Lift The Curse, saw release in 2007, and its follow-up All Hail The End in 2010. Each album saw the band elevate their songwriting and delivery to no sonic territory, and expanded their fanbase into new realms of the metal underground and mainstream. 2013's Paragon Of The Crucible, saw the band lashing out harder than ever, becoming the band's most lauded LP to date within the media and band's fanbase alike. FREYA now prepares to deliver their finest works yet, with the writhing, concentrated, metallic wrath of Grim.
