I dunno why i thought about these guys recently and how 13-14 years ago they were talked about for having the ugliest covers of the universe or being lame beyond belief or for being one of the first BM Joke band or somehow cool...

I've always been puzzled about them, corny as shit but some enjoyable passages and cool riffs with some passable keyboards

Plus it has aged BAD... So is it cheesy bad or cheesy good? I wager youngsters won't even know about them!

The name brings back nostalgia, but I never actually listened to them. There were always ads in the zines.

Same. Always got a really silly vibe from the band name and aesthetics.

You can play big daddy all you want -and how mature it is to spend hours trolling on an internet forum and e-bossing people around with your boring uninspired I-know-it-all posture- my point is still valid: teenagers of 16-19 and there are some on this forum, have probably never heard of Gloomy Grim while they were almost "big" before and have since then fallen into complete oblivion...

Crazy thing is they released an album in 2008. I say they sold a dozen

I like Gloomy Grim. The singers voice is hilarious as well as the lyrics. "Jesus Christ come here!! You will be crucified again!! All the churches will burn!! I have plenty of nails!! I've had enough of your weakness! Turn the other side and that stuff!! Why the hell I must show I am weak!? I prefer fight back and be proud!!"

Two of my buds that had tastes on the 'wimpier' side of BM liked these guys, so it was clear to me to avaoid it all costs. Not as GAY as Willow Wisp, but they're trying!!!

I remember those guys, I listened to just one CD though, it was not THAT bad by my standards at that time but now they sound cheesy and outdated as fuck.

Also the covers made me think of amateur prog metal bands or something


I mean, THIS FUCKING COVER ART, people used to think polygons were cool

I wish I didn't. Thanks for reminding me. The best thing they ever did was this rockin' vid that looks like a fucking Halloween e-card: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NtEYsz86q6Y

More like a useless tribute to the 90's melodic black metal videos of Ancient, Hecate Enthroned, etc others who did just as silly videos.

I think that could have looked pretty cool had it been hand drawn.
