Exclusive Track Premiere: Gloom, “Cede”


Later this spring the Devastation on the Nation tour will hit the U.S. and Canada, featuring Cryptopsy, Decrepit Birth, Rivers of Nihil, The Zenith Passage, Visceral Disgorge, The Kennedy Veil, Seeker and Gloom.

Who exactly are Gloom, you ask? Now’s your chance to learn.

On “Cede,” which we’re premiering on MetalSucks today, Gloom show us just why a band that doesn’t even have a full-length album out yet scored a spot on such a killer tour and landed a label deal with eOne. The track combines death metal, doom, sludge and progressive atmosphere into a concise jam that’s just a shade over three minutes. It’s a great introduction to a band that we anticipate seeing a whole lot more of in the future.

Says the band on the track:

Solaris is our first full length and while we were writing the album we really wanted to bring all our individual influences to the table and create something dynamic. We really want to carve out our own niche in metal and Solaris is a big step in that direction. For us, “Cede” is a good musical representation of some of the different styles you’ll hear on the album.  Lyrically, it’s about breaking the cycle of a bad on-off relationship I had for years and finding a place where I could grow out of those feelings.”

Gloom’s new album Solaris comes out on June 2nd via eOne; pre-order here.
