The Sludge/Post-Metal band from Sweden, Gloson, will release their upcoming EP on the 5th of April and will be titled “Mara”.
Gloson was formed “in the summer of 2012 in Sweden, (by) a group of individuals (who) came together with a solitary goal in mind, to create dark music offset with the smallest glimmer of hope”, according to the band. Their first release was the EP titled “Yearwalker”, which had such success that it was re-released a year later as an LP by two different record labels: Catatonic State from Sweden and Art of Propaganda from Germany.
Their debut full-length album followed in 2017 titled “Grimen”, from which a single was released in 2016 titled “Cringe”.
The current lineup consists of:
Anders Persson – Guitar & vocals
Christian Larsson – Guitar & vocals
Kristoffer Bruhn – Bass & backing vocals
Samuel Envik – Drums
“Mara” will be released on the 5th of April through Black Lion Records.
Words from the band regarding the EP:
“Mara” is about our subconsciousness while being asleep; being stuck between the realm of dreams and reality. Portraying personal demons has usually been the agenda of Gloson, and the most graphic and terrifying ones occur during such states.
“Usurper” is about when you are the protagonist of a dream and have to wade through oceans of unreal horror that dwells within, while “Equinox” is the other way around, when you yourself are the antagonist and the chokehold of everything that is real and unreal.”
