GLOOM + Metal Injection

With the self-titled debut EP by Gloom out next Tuesday, June 24th, Metal Injection has kicked off a stream of the entire EP.

Metal Injection's review of the Washington, D.C. band's shocker of a debut reads: "Aside from the obvious black and death metal influences, there's also an abundance of doomy, swaggering groove to be found on tracks like 'Unrequited' and 'Erotema.' If you listen closely enough, you can even occasionally hear a smidge of Phil Anselmo in Bill Calomiris' vocal delivery. There's not a single song that exceeds four minutes, and the result is an EP that's brief but also incredibly focused and intense..."

The Gloom EP was produced by Marshall Wieczorek, drummer of Victory headbangers Wretched. The cover art is by Steven Mercado (The Dillinger Escape Plan).
