Gloam – Death is the Beginning (2017)


Hailing from the USA, today we have Gloam and their sickening latest EP titled “Death is the Beginning”. Unleashing three powerful tracks of raw and relentless Black/Doom Metal, the band crafts a very powerful and effective sound that is quite ravaging and violent. Sounding like a ‘slower’ version of Watain (kind of like Weapon), this EP is certainly a great way to get acquainted with the crushing sound.

The band sets the mood with the very sinister intro track, “Anguish”, setting a very melodic and engaging backdrop while not revealing too much of what is to come. Unleashing their fury, “…OF a Carrion Kind” rips this release wide open with punishing riffs and tight drumming. The band’s sound is instantly fully immersive and quite engaging. We enjoy how they blend their harsher elements like the vocals, with the more melodic musical core and end up creating a very relentless aural experience.

Closing with the oppressive title track, the band starts with a slower and darker atmosphere perfectly accented by hellish growls. This track follows a slower and doomier progression but still shows the band’s unique ability to craft disturbing pieces of music in a nearly effortless manner. Overall, “Death is the Beginning” is a great intro into the band’s unique musical world, so be sure to not miss out and pick up a copy of this killer release through Blood Harvest Records.
