Mentally marked by anarcho-punk GRMMSK emerged as a new project in 2007 following on from his earlier industrial field recordings project TOTSTELLEN. A short and intense tour of Finland that same year and the first release under the project – PUNK ON KUOLLUT (Punk is dead) – was released. Releasing prolifically since, including several cassettes on his own micro label Totes Format, his back catalogue is a tome of heavy sonics, dubbed out experiments and shards of aural bliss.
In addition to the doom dub machinations of GRMMSK, the one responsible builds handmade electronic drone instruments under the name METSÄÄN, performing with them as Coldsore. GRMMSK is part of Helsinki’s experimental radio show Bekola and is in the midst of releasing a new 12″.
