Grim is an absolutely amazing, almost skizophrenic and obscure power-electronics and noise-one-man project of Jun Konagaya. Jun’s sound change its mood and athmosphere in seconds. From extreme harsh and hard power electronic noise-walls to ingenious folk-songs and tunes as you know it from Charles Manson.

In the very early 80s Jun formed White Hospital together with Tomosada Kuwabara. They released one album called "Holocaust" in 1984 and split. At that time Jun had already released the „Vital“ Tape with his project GRIM. Kuwuhara moved on to form Vasilisk while Jun continued as GRIM releasing one Lp, 12“ and 7“ as well as contributing to several compilations during the 80’s...One of the best-kept secrets to seep out the early 1980’s Japanese sewer

 Grim’s sound is perhaps closest to SPK’s intense, distorted atmospherics, with a sort of horror movie ambience. Konagaya wasn’t afraid to pull in other influences, though, as demonstrated by the orchestral feel of the song “Amaterasu”. For the most part, though, he stayed with intense growling vocals, percussion using oil tanks and oxygen cylinders, and noise guitar.
