Details Of New Album "Grim" Issued By Freya

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

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," the 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.

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