Gravity Hurts is Cryoshell's third song and it was used as the soundtrack for LEGO's BIONICLE 'Phantoka' toyline. It was released on February 4, 2008 as a free download from the official BIONICLE website.

In 2012, the track was re-recorded featuring the vocals of Tine Midtgaard and was released on YouTube on the 8th of January, 2013, a month after Breakout.

In 2015 an instrumental of the original was released.

In 2018, a re-recorded remix was released with vocals from Christine Lorentzen, and featuring the Budapest Art Orchestra.

Music VideoEdit

A music video for the song was shot in January 2008. It features the singer Niels Brinck and the band (excluding Lorentzen) in a recording studio and, as in the storyboard for it, recording the song. Various clips from BIONICLE's history of CGI short movies and promo videos were cut into the video.


  • Niels Brinck provided vocals for the lyrics, instead of Christine Lorentzen. Mikkel Maltha wrote the song.
  • The song was used as the soundtrack for BIONICLE's Phantoka toyline in early 2008. It features in the commercials and short movies advertising the sets.
  • In the 2012 version, there is only one line change, which is from "Team up for battle we fly" to "Battle is all in your mind", possibly to distance the band from the origin of the song. This change was later undone in the 2018 version.
  • In 2015 they released an instrumental of the 2008 version. They later stated in the comments they were working on a new song titled "Rebel Nature", intended to be used for Justin Faber's project of the same name.
  • The 2018 version featured accompaniment from the Budapest Art Orchestra, with Christine Lorentzen providing vocals. Some instrumental sections of the song were modified and rewritten for climatic effect.
