a fellow currently residing in the twin cities of minnesota, grim has been recording under the name ten arms for the past decade, releasing very little and all around not being heard of. a transplant from iowa, he has previously played in such bands as no consensus, heroic nonsense and some other ones too probably. the first ten arms album, tentacles, was released digitally in 2011 to no acclaim and has to date sold one copy. other releases have also been released since then. ten arms is willing to perform live if anyone cares to request such a performance.
