In Memory of Copperfields

Today, as a bridge to the new chapter once again, we’d like to present to you a surprise exclusive live album "Live At Copperfields" as an appreciation for all your support, and also, in memory of a fantastic venue in Stockholm, Sweden.

As you know, we, Gloson, are currently working on the next full-length album. While this process is going to take long as always for various factors, it’s also going to take longer than usual due to the current pandemic. So during the wait, we’ve decided to give you something new to add to your collection.

The recording is from our live performance last year in Stockholm on April 20. Since the quality was satisfactory to us and captured how we sound well, we decided to mix it and give it to you for "pay what you want" during this wait.

Additionally, where this live happened, Copperfields, is no longer in business. The venue was loved by many, and was also one of our personal favourites. We wanted this to be a tribute to the fantastic venue and people behind the scenes who welcomed us many times ever since we formed the band.

Thank you all for the support, and special thank you to our FOH of the night, Fredrik Svensson, for recording this! The artwork for this album was created once again by Ogino Design, based on a photo from the day, captured by one of our fans Matthias Hammar.

We hope you enjoy it. Stay home and safe. Available now exclusively via Bandcamp!

New album recorded!

That's a wrap! Everything is now put to tape. By far the most ambitious undertaking we've done musically, but also the smoothest recording session we've had. Now we'll let the masterful Ulf of HoboRec take care of mixing everything. As of this moment we cannot give you any form of probable release date for a multitude of reasons. But we will give you more information when we have it!

Until then; stay safe, take care and wash your hands.

Update regarding our upcoming album:

A small update regarding our next album:

We have booked the studio at HoboRec to record our next album in the end of March. Very exciting!

Meanwhile, we are working on making the songs as good as we possibly can. Currently we are looking at about 60 minutes of material.

No releasedate as of right now.

Usurper - Official Video Premiere

We are proud to announce our music video for the track Usurper, taken off the upcoming EP Mara, through No Clean Singing. The EP is due for release April 5th through Black Lion Records.

 

This is what No Clean Singing has to say about it:

"Like the extraterrestrial locales in the video — the titanic outer planets of our solar system and their barren moons and vast rings — the music is both desolate and fantastical, and gargantuan in its heaviness. The central riff that loops through most of the song is itself titanic, heavy enough to create its own gravity well, heavy enough to send your body into a metronomic lurch. And there is a harsh and barren quality in those sounds — it seems to moan at the same time as it crushes."

 

You can pre-order the EP on CD/Digital here:

About Gloson

(l to r) Anders Persson - Guitar, Vocals; Kristoffer Bruhn - Bass, Vocals (Backing); Samuel Envik - Drums; Christian Larsson - Guitar, Vocals

In the summer of 2012 in Sweden, a group of individuals came together with a solitary goal in mind, to create dark music offset with the smallest glimmer of hope. Instead of being inspired by political religious themes, the band turned to their own personal and internal wastelands to see what would manifest from their subconscious; writing within this very cruel world.

They embarked on their first journey to the world in 2014 with their debut digital EP "Yearwalker". The EP was well-received, and to celebrate the fact, the album was re-released on a LP format in the following year by two labels; Catatonic State from Sweden and Art of Propaganda from Germany.

After several live debuts following the release, the songwriting for the debut full-length took place. The album "Grimen" was announced with its first single "Cringe" in late 2016, with a stronger than ever production, mastered by Magnus Lindberg of Cult Of Luna.

"Don’t you love it/hate it 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?" (No Clean Singing), "it's a breathtaking achievement for a band that's just getting started" (The Sludgelord) — the highly regarded full-length album "Grimen" was released in the following year.

Now after the small glimpse to the new era with the EP “Mara” in 2019, Gloson is ready to take a further step into the world with the new 2nd full-length album, scheduled to be released in 2021.

"Grimen" (2017)

"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."


"Yearwalker" (2014)

"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."
