GROMS ("God Rules Over My Soul") formed in Kristiansand, Norway in 1992. This groovy death metal band toured in Poland in 1993. On December 21st, 1994, their one and only album 'Ascension' was released on the Arctic Serenades label. There were reports of a second album, tentatively entitled 'I Beseech Thee', but nothing more came out of it. As guitarist Hans Dalen left the band, they split up. Torodd Fuglesteg, the man behind Arctic Serenades, is a very anti-religious person and the relationship between label and band resulted in severed ties. Their album was re-released by Pleitegeier Records in 1996.
