"after GRMMSK debut "PUNK ON KOULLUT" from 2007 (free download link below), this is another DOOM[dub]-resurrection ov the still undead punk genre. similar to the evolution ov zombie's mobility in movies these days, on the collaboration ov GRMMSK + MÜLLTÜTE you'll find not only slow motion crawling and staggering steps, but also rather aggressive and hectic attacks. that's when they've found you! feel the sting ov this toothed-up VERSIONS."
WIR FRESZEN UND SCHEISZEN MÜLL.
DANACH SCHLAFEN WIR UNRUHIG.
WEIL WIR NICHT WISZEN KOENNEN,
OB ES MORGEN NOCH WAS GIBT.
WE EAT AND SHIT GRABAGE.
AFTER THAT OUR SLEEP IS RESTLESS.
BECAUSE WE JUST DON'T KNOW,
IF THERE WILL BE SOMETHING LEFT TOMORROW.

unfrei [dwnld + tape]
"GRMMSK / Unfrei & Dirty Snow (Totes Format) two tapes, made in the typical Totes Format-[un]fashion. These copies are showcasing GRMMSK move forward to a special direction, reprocessing jamaican dub into slowed and hazed version of themself. Ghostly music but wearing the typical signature sound of a long lost era. The remade versions are creeping inwards with their broken surface and rendered vocal partitions, splittered and refragmented. This is not noise, nor glitch in the common sense of nor glitch in the common sense of the word, this is the clever filtering of hidden bassnotes and delightfully spreaded frequencies. GRMMSK is replacing the meaningful origins of the basic tracks and tells a new story based upon the source material. “Unfrei” means not free and depicts the situation of nowadays mankind perfectly in one word. Maybe that is the deeper meaning, maybe GRMMSK leave it up to the listener and receiver to reflect about that." (thorstensoltau.tumblr.com)
"Essential 21st century listening in my humble opinion."

"Oops. With some of that weird spelling on hand written covers, I mistook Grmmsk for Graaaask in Vital Weekly 813. They (*) are from Helsinki and play heavy slow dub music, which is even furthermore deconstructed than one would expect. The music seems, again, to have been lifted from reggae records and played through more effects, slowing it down in the process. Just what exactly is it that these guys are doing when creating their music, other than smoking another spliff? Less noisy than the previous release, quite dark and haunted. Oh and slooooooow, ma'n. Actually I like it quite a bit, but then I always had a weakness for dub music." (VITAL WEEKLY 870 fdw)
* dear (FdW), dear readers, actually GRMMSK is just one bwoy , called GRM. he doesn't use drugs, at all. thanks.
"GRMMSK kehrt derweil wieder Babylon den Rücken mit dirty snow (TOTFORM 13, C-24). ‘[prison| EVERYWHERE’ und drei weitere im grauen Alltag von Helsinki wie auf Valium ausgebrütete Tracks drehen die Dub-Schraube gegen Null und entziehen der Musik jeden Götterfunken. Die ‘CRAZY [boneheads]’ können lethargisch nur noch lallen, dass ihnen das Hirn mit Leim gewaschen wurde, und tapsen als Zombies durch den Matsch. ‘BETTER [must come]’? Die Botschaft hört man wohl, aber als ausgeleierte Phrase. Oder verzerrt, mit einer Matschbirne, die im Zementmixer umgewälzt wird, während Presslufthämmer Verbesserungsvorschläge machen. ‘[what] NEXT’? Ein Aufstand mit Tamtam? Oder der alte Trott, mit Tamtam beschleunigt zum Joggertrab?" (BAD ALCHEMY 76 rbd)

The first full-length from Libertatia Overseas. "THE END PROPHECIES" is a limited CD reissue of the original cassette issued by Finnish death dub technician GRMMSK in 2011, along with his more recent "DIRTY SNOW" tape release in its entirety. Specially remastered for extra volume, with a 4-page redesigned booklet.
"Echo and reverb in the snow. The intensity of breakcore pitched all the way down, rasta vocals used to signify cosmic dread rather than urban street cred. Familiar reggae vocals twisted and made beautifully bleak. 'Downtempo' doesn't do it justice - one track features the riff from Dawn Penn's 'No No No' oozing along at the speed of a glacier" - TURBULENT TIMES, issue 9

imagine winter in frosted hellsinki... stalking the dirty grey snowscapes of an urban nightmare with oldschool JA dub-classics in my ears, playing on my low-battery run walkman... the rythm of reinforced concrete tombstones rammed into the hardned soil mixes with the off-beat, the foundation of new buildings... shelves for the livestock of this system, slaves of moloch, white material... the only lights are synthesized but very soon they will fade to black. this is white babylon and instead of burning, it will freeze and shatter, then melt like the rest of the horrid white world into a greygoo apocalypse.
