Into The Limelight Records Inks Deal With Grim Ordeal

Dutch metal act Grim Ordeal signed on with Into the Limelight Records. A sophomore full length record is targeted for release in 2017.

Grim Ordeal provides you with a “straight in your face!” mix of brutal, thrashing and grooving metal with some added progressive elements and a pinch of death and core. Featuring technical guitar work, gruff vocals and tempo fluctuations, Grim Ordeal has created a very unique yet recognizable sound. Grim Ordeal consists of the following members: Otto Donk (vocals), Raymond Groenink (guitar), Edwin Kral (guitar), Bryan Zwiers (bass) and Rob Pol (drums).

Based in the Dutch city of Deventer, Grim Ordeal has been steadily active for a decade. In 2011 they recorded the first 3 song demo, after which a heavy live performance period followed. During that time they played gigs as supports for the likes of Malevolent Creation, Izegrim, The Lucifer Principle, Erebus, The Monolith Deathcult and many more. These efforts culminated in a spot as the sole support for Sacred Reich’s 2012 exclusive BeNeLux club performance in Hedon, Zwolle (The Netherlands).

In July 2014, the band independently released the debut album “A Tragedy Unfolds” and the song “My Kingdom” was chosen as the opening track for compilation album “Metal Inside” Volume 1 released by Big Bad Wolf Records.

It didn’t take long for them to spark interest amongst labels to release the new album in 2017. The choice for Into The LimeLight Records was a logical step. The new album will be released fall 2017. The band and the label are working on a release and marketing plan. The digital and physical distribution will be handled by Soulfood Music Gmbh in Germany.

Skurk Releasing “Final Gift,” Posts Lyric Video

Icelandic thrash act Skurk is gearing up to release “Final Gift” on June 20th, 2014 and the band has now dropped a lyric video for the title track, which can be seen below. The following press release was also issued about Skurk:

“The name Skurk is an old northern word, and stands for all kinds of noise and fuss or hooligan and ribaldry. The music is inspired by Kreator, Metallica, Sacred Reich, Slayer, Iron Maiden, Helloween, Nuclear Assault, Wrathchild America and Black Sabbath to name some of the guys’ most favourite bands then and now.

Skurk toured Iceland ferociously for three years – through blizzard and snow, and finally bought a studio. The next step was to make an album, which was distributed mostly amongst friends and family. Subsequently the band broke up, and in the coming years some of the members found themselves in various bands such as Changer and Shiva while others pursued other interests and work careers as lumberjack mountain guides and meat cleavers.

Skurk reunited in 2011 to play a special concert with viking band Skálmöld, teamed up with drummer Porvalur Helgason (Gruesome Glory, Malignant Mist) the concert was a total success, and the band decided to continue rehearsing. Skurk later shared the stage with great artists as Legend, L’esprit Du Clan, Hangman’s Chair, Momentum, and Eiríkur Hauksson (Eric Hawk) from Artch, amongst others. With revitalised spark, new music started to brew, and in 2013 Skurk went to studio GFG to record a new album and hired non other than Kristján Heiðarsson (Changer, Dark Harvest, Vetur) to play the drums. Since the original album was released in such limited edition, the band members decided to record their favourite tracks from the early days, along with one new track.”
