Sound Of The Day : Gloosh

Thank you Black Metal Promotion for the introduction to Gloosh. I’m currently obsessing over the project’s phenomenal debut album Timewheel.

I think my favourite track on the album has to be the very first offering, Vjkhr. The opening knocks the breath out of me.

The music of “Gloosh” is black metal of a classical form with interweaving of atmospheric roots. This is closer to the natural themes: it is nature in true guise, it is the order of things (change of seasons), it is a primeval admiration for the winds, clouds and thunderstorms; the absorption and destruction by nature of everything that man has ever created. This is a deep mossy forest. Gloosh invests in music ideas of animism and attitude to nature contrary to monotheism. There is a belief that there are innumerable non-anthropomorphic deities and creatures everywhere. – George Gabrielyan

In case you were wondering (I know I was) the word ‘Gloosh’ is Russian for backwoods/wilderness. Also, if like me you’re obsessed with the artwork the accompanies the album, you can see more of Taya Rostovtseva’s work here.
