In case you somehow missed it, Old Man Gloom are back with a new album, something I’m very excited about and now you can check out a new song via Pitchfork – ‘Common Species’.
This song lays down a pretty rousing preview for the new album, No. First erupting with some typical sludgy riffing and Aaron Turner’s caustic bark, ‘Common Species’ is a beast from the start. This year we’ve seen a return to Turner’s heavier tendencies, vocally, with this and the hardcore project, Split Cranium. After the dissonance, the song then descends into a crushingly slow doomy verse with Caleb Scofield’s equally scary bark to be heard in the background. Have a listen HERE and once again, keep an eye out for the album review shortly.
