Michael Hojjatie The market is fast becoming WAY too overflooded with acts like this. Thankfully Grimlin happens to be great. Favorite track: Slash Fiction.

I discovered GRIMLIN exactly one day ago and it's pretty surprising with how much force he slammed onto the scene. As other people described already here, it's a great combo of several darksynth ingredients and known names. Some distortion, heavy bass synths, giallo/slasher atmosphere of oldschool movies and occasional guitar riffs and solos (Night Prey!!!). Looks like 2018 brought us a new champion, because Grimlin is a keeper for sure. Why don't you own this album yet?
Favorite track: Night Prey.

G-Prime It's always awesome to find a new artist and fall in love with their work immediately. Heavy on dancy beats, distortion, badass guitar riffs, and horror vibes. You can hear obvious influences of a number of darksynth heavyweights in here, from Hubrid to Raydar to Perturbator and Carpenter Brut. But nothing here feels derivative. It's demented and dark and just fucking great. Favorite track: Hollowgram.

about

The album's theme is a story that we may all one day relate to; a day where the only thing that can survive the repeating routines of everyday life will be machines.
Trapped on Tape is dedicated to those who constantly fight against these routines, so they can escape the infinite loop - a loop which makes time move past at ever-increasing speeds without us ever knowing.

about

Grimlin Paris, France

Grimlin draws his inspiration from the darker side of the '80s and the pop-occult culture of the time. His debut is loaded with a destabilizing cyberpunk vibe and slashed with hard, sharpened, metallic rhythms that intersect with warm and nostalgic tones. ... more
