Compilation of old songs taken from their first two demos ("Fuck the World, Kill the Jehova" of 1996 and "Friendship is Friendship, War is War" of 1997) for the Finnish band Gloomy Grim, that I didn't know before this CD. They were started in 1995 as a one-man band of Agathon, that was already a veteran of the Finnish metal scene when he founded this new project. In fact, it's remarkable its past militancy in bands like Airdash (one of the most relevant '80s thrash metal acts from Finland) and Corporal Punishment (early '90s death metal), so I can say that he went through all the main phases in the extreme metal history, black metal included because of his Gloomy Grim, that, if I say right, became a full line-up band (but without the drummer) in occasion of their second demo.
