Below is our complete Gloomball news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
For our 2013 year-end awards we included a category for best “newcomers” – those bands that released debut albums well worth hearing.
To help get you acquainted with the best new talent releasing albums you may have missed, we’ll be looking at each of the bands nominated for the “best newcomer” category by our staff. Today, writer OverkillExposure looks at Gloomball and Damnations Day:
Guitarist Björn Daigger of new German import Gloomball states, “We refer to our material simply as rock music, but you could also call it alternative metal or modern rock.” Of this variety, the rock-radio highway is annually littered with misses, but Gloomball’s debut “The Distance” is a gut-punching hit. Daigger and co-songwriter Alen Ljubic (vocals) composed seven new tracks atop four previously existing songs from the band’s demo days, tossed in a cover of Robert M. Tepper’s “No Easy Way Out” (from “Rocky IV”) for good measure, and recorded a killer record with massive crossover appeal. Ballsy, thunderous, and groovy enough for headbangers young and old, melodic and heartfelt enough for a cathartic singalong session, “The Distance” expertly captures the essence of Five Finger Death Punch, late ‘90s Machine Head (sans the rap), latter-day Shadows Fall, and even some power metal and the understated progressive brilliance of acts such as Scar Symmetry.
Germany's Gloomball has released a new lyric video for the track "Overcome," which comes off the band's currently album "The Distance," out via Steamhammer/SPV. Check out the clip below, or you can watch the music video for title track "The Distance" at this location.
