Grimm Tales is a five-track EP of Grimm Brothers fairy tales in song, flowing from one to the next, with all the darkness and gore left in. Beyond its dark indie-pop flavoured filk tracks, it features everything from a cappella chorals, to cinematic instrumental sections, spoken word poetry and soundscapes.
The specific fairy tales covered are Little Red Cap (known today as Little Red Riding Hood) in 'Saved by Murder', Cinderella in 'Bloody Heels', Little Snow White (known today just as Snow-White) in 'Dance 'Til You're Dead', Hansel And Gretel in 'Roasted Witch' and Little Brier-Rose (known today as Sleeping Beauty) in 'Dinner or Death'.
Grimm Tales comes as a physical copy, lovingly packaged in a sleeve wallet with cover and CD art by one of Meri's favourite artists (which she finds very exciting), Nathan Seabolt. On the packaging, there is a secret link to over 50 pages of extra materials including the original Grimm versions of the stories, lyrics, artworks and photographs.
