Gloomy Grim/Fuck The World, War Is War!/Symbol Of Domination Productions/Murdher Records/2017 CD Compilation Review


  Finland's  Gloomy  Grim have  returned  with  a  album  that  is  in  the  symphonic  black  metal  style  while  also  being  a collection  of  songs  they  have  released  over  the  years and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2017  compilation  album "Fuck  The  World,  War  Is  War!"  which  was  released  as  a  joint  effort  between  Symbol Of  Domination  Productions  and  Murdher  Records.

  Symphonic  sounding  keyboards  start  off  the  compilation  along  with  some  grim  black  metal  screams  a  few  seconds  later  and  after  awhile  heavy  guitar  riffs  start  to  make  their  presence  known  and  they  also  mix  in  with  the  symphonic  sections  of  the  music  while  the riffs  also  use  a  decent  amount  of  melody.

  One  of  the  tracks  is  very  long  and  epic  in  length  and  when  guitar  leads  are finally  added  into  the  songs  they  give  the  music  more  of  an  old  school  metal  feeling  while  also having  their  melodic  moments  and  female  vocals  along  with  spoken  word  parts  are  also  used  briefly  and  all  of  the  songs  stick  to  either  a  slow  or  mid  paced  musical  direction.

  With  this  compilation  Gloomy  Grim  brings  in  a  mixture  of  both  new  and  old  material  which  is  all  in  a  symphonic  black  metal  style,  the  production  sounds  very  professional  while  the  lyrics  cover  Satanism,  War,  Anti  Christianity,  Darkness,  Death,  and  Horror  themes.

  In  my  opinion  this  is  a  very great  sounding  collection  from  Gloomy  Grim and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  band,  you  should  check  out  this  compilation.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Written  In  Blood"  "Asylum"  and  "Blood".  8  out  of  10.
