Gloam
Death Is The Beginning
Company: Bloodharvest
Release: 2017
Genre: Black
Reviewer: Greg Watson
Published: 11/1/2017

Somewhat lackluster but still fun to listen to
COMMENTS:
The 3 tracks presented on Gloam's 'Death Is The Beginning' EP are a short glimpse of what the band are about. With black metal mixed with elements of doom, the music really gives you that bleak, stark feeling that fans of black metal love and really enjoy. Musically, the songs utilize chords and progressions that are pretty standard in black metal and really aren't anything new. The vocals are raspy and sharp, adding more cold to the overall atmosphere. While there isn't much new in the way of the music, this was still a really fun listen and definitely worth checking out at least once.
