Gloosh is a solo project from the Siberian region of Russia that plays a very atmospheric and mossy form of black metal and this is a review of his 2020 album "Timewheel" which was released as a joint effort between Casus Belli Musica and Beverina,
A very fast and raw sound starts off the album along with a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats. When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are also done in a very melodic style while all of the musical instruments on the recording also have a very powerful sound to them.
Vocals are mostly grim sounding black metal screams while the songs also add in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts. The riffs also bring in a good amount of melody along with some nature sounds also being added into some parts of the recording and most of the tracks are also very long and epic in length.
At times the music also gets very atmospheric sounding along with the music also capturing the classic style of East European black metal. Classical guitars can also be heard briefly and one track also adds in a small amount of melodic singing in the background, clean playing can also be heard briefly on the closing track. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover nature and animism themes.
In my opinion Gloosh are a very great sounding atmospheric black metal solo project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Timewheel" and "Groza". 8 out of 10.
