At Transcending Obscurity Records, we’re looking for bands that are trying to do something innovative and from Spain, Gloom are onto something special. They don’t just play standard death metal but are exploring the extreme end of it, playing something close to brutal death metal one can say but also merging influences of black metal unlike any other. The overall mix is hard-hitting as well as stimulating, and that rarely happens nowadays. Gloom are a great addition to an already diverse band roster.
Transcending Obscurity Records owner Kunal Choksi states, “It’s hard to come across a band that blends in diverse influences without compromising on the heaviness as well as Gloom. Unlike others, they’re merging elements of brutal death metal and even grind with black metal and the result is astonishing. This should serve as a welcome relief from the clones out there. Gloom are here to create a new expression and I’m sure their new album will turn heads all over the world.”
Gloom comment, “When Transcending Obscurity records proposed us to sign with them we did not hesitate for a single second, it was a golden opportunity to take a step further with a record label that frightens the underground extreme metal and that supports bands from all over the world. Some of them are now well known bands and we are really proud to be a part of this roster.
Our next album, the first album with Transcending Obscurity records, will be an evolution in the music of Gloom, the first album with a single guitar and in which we bet for heavier and cruder guitar riffs, greater importance of the bass lines, and with the same rage and power of drums and vocals. There is no doubt that we are very excited about this new stage and that our followers will find in this new album the essence of Gloom with more anger and hatred than ever.”
