The Prophecy Agency will work together with Dutch death/thrash band Grim Ordeal.

Grim Ordeal is a hard working band,enthusiastic and has a lot of experience when it comes to playing on stage . They already played with Malevolent Creation, Izegrim, Sacred Reich, The Lucifer Principle, Erebus, The Monolith Deathcult and many more.

In 2012 Grim Ordeal played as direct support for Sacred Reich in Hedon, Zwolle (NL).

For their latest 9-track album, 'A Tragedy Unfolds', they worked together with JB van der Wal (Herder/Aborted) .

This album recieved lots of very positive reviews.

 

Power of Metal.DK
"This band has definitely metal core roots and influences in their music, but they add lots of groove and thrash influences to it. Sure there are indeed a lot more bands doing the same, but not all with success. Grim Ordeal is a band that combines these influences in a rather unique way.The final track combines very fast parts with slower ones and has some Machine Head beeping guitar sounds in it and with the brutal singing of Otto all over it, the song sounds like Machine Head jamming with Gorefest. Fans of the bands that I mentioned above have to check this out for certain."

(Dutch review)

" Twee jaar geleden verscheen van Grim Ordeal een EP met daarop drie nummers. Nu is er een volledig album en het resultaat mag er zijn. Het album is netjes uitgevoerd in digipack met puikartwork en dito tekstboekje. Ook muzikaal is er een behoorlijke sprong voorwaarts gemaakt. 'A Tragedy Unfolds' bevat technische brute thrash metal met gevarieerde composities. JB vd Wal, die we kennen van onder meer Aborted en Herder, heeft de productie op zich genomen en ook dat is,vergeleken met de eerder uitgebrachte EP, een riante verbetering. De drumpartijen klinken zoals het hoort en het gitaarwerk trekt het niveau van dit album omhoog. De groovende en melodieuze partijen vliegen je om de oren. Gecombineerd met mooie tempowisselingen heeft dat geresulteerd
in een aanrader voor liefhebbers van complexe, melodieuze thrash metal."

We at The Prophecy Agency are looking forward working with this great band !
