Steve Grimmett reveals his band stepped in songwriting wise given his mental state after losing his right leg
Grim Reaper frontman Steve Grimmett was interviewed by Jimmy Kay for Canada’s The Metal Voice when Steve Grimmett’s Grim Reaper were in Montreal, Quebec, Canada for their gig at the Piranha Bar. Steve Grimmett’s Grim Reaper will be releasing a new studio album titled At The Gates on October 11, 2019.
Grimmett stated as follows about the new album (with slight edits): “The new album will be released the 11th of October 2019, I wrote six of the songs on the album and the other guys in the band wrote some too. This new album has been recorded the same way as the last one, old school. It’s not the Grim Reaper sound as it used to be, this time it has a modern twist. The album is a lot more heavier, it branches out cause we have to grow and that was intentional. I think the next album we will branch out even more.”
In terms of his current mental state, Grimmett indicated: “My band has stepped in regarding songwriting when I couldn’t produce the goods on helping to write this album. I have suffered quite badly with mental issues after losing my leg I got post traumatic stress disorder, that is still ongoing and nearly a year ago I lost my brother and that put my in a downward spiral and I have been suffering quiet a bit since. I have been to counselling to help out which has helped out cause I would’t have been able to be here if it didn’t.”
