‘In The Throes Of Madness’ serves itself as a release of anger, fear, depression, disappointment and all the other things that come along with the current climate of the world we’re living in.
For new listeners of Grim Earth this album is a progressive step in a slightly different direction from previous material. Member changes, coupled with new interests and the want to experiment with different genres led the band down the path of exploring new territory while maintaining the sound that fans associate them with.
‘In the Throes of Madness’ is about the human condition and all the things intertwined within that complicated subject while also touching the band’s own personal feelings and emotions.
The album is filthy, distorted and full of rage which also perfectly sums up how we were feeling while writing this album. It’s full of screeching feedback, abrupt tempo changes and abrasive tone while still paying mind to the riff.
The band took inspiration from lots of their favorite Hardcore/Powerviolence and Death Metal bands and added it into their songwriting formula.
