"The Rift" (2022)
"Bear witness to 2022’s finest metal record so far, a crushing rendition of the essence of post-metal and sludge, with esoteric riffs that shatter planets. Gloson‘s The Rift is not to be missed."
"You can take our collective word, because as mentioned at the outset all of us here have been overwhelmed by the intensity and the expansive depths of The Rift."
"After their promising debut "Grimen" from 2017, the Swedish sludge/post-metallers GLOSON throw their second album five years later to meet the high expectations."
"The Rift shows that Gloson have been making good use of the years since their debut. This is a powerfully dark and bleak record."
"Don’t you love it/hate it (delete as appropriate) when a band comes along, seemingly out of nowhere, with a debut album so good you struggle to grasp how they’ve actually managed it? Because that’s exactly what Swedish Post-Sludgebringers Gloson have done."
"From its excellent pacing to its subtle use of varied instruments, it's a breathtaking achievement for a band that's just getting started."
"Gloson showcase a sound unmistakably distinct from other post metal bands today, and I am so relieved. "Grimen" is a formidable debut album from a band who had a tremendous start."
"Progressive, atmospheric, hammering—a few words to describe the debut of these patient Swedes, a band who have managed to successfully decode the finicky sludge-doom Enigma machine."
"Gloson do take influence from the usual heavy hitters of Sludge/Post-Metal but they manage to create their own sound which is packed full of menace and brutal energy which is very hard to ignore."
"Not often do I become this excited from listening to an EP, but Gloson have definitely pulled me into their dense doom sludge that I don’t want to get out of anytime soon."
