Gloson - Grimen

Gloson is a five-piece post-metal band residing in Halmstad, Sweden. In 2014 I listened to their debut EP, Yearwalker, and came away thoroughly impressed. Now, after 2+ years, they have finally released their first full-length album, Grimen. A well-executed and high-standard effort in what is unfortunately now the Groundhog Day world for post-metal, Gloson showcase a sound unmistakably distinct from other post metal bands today, and I am so relieved.

The one prowess I noticed right from the advent of Grimen is the disquiet is particularly thick and represented by a substantial subset of sub-genres. Slow-burning sludge-y riffs, expansive and colossal doom exercises, and above-average death metal growls. The mixture is well-formed and beyond reproach. Very expressive and hallmarked by diligently placed crescendo. All the right ingredients in the proper proportions.

Fuck it. 2 disks, 4 songs, 90+ minutes. Let's do both.
