February 22, 2013, a year ago
The automobile and energy industries prove it on a daily basis: they swear by hybrids, in other words a homogeneous mix of different components which blend past, present and future. German newcomer act GLOOMBALL apply similar parameters in terms of their artistic orientation.
Their debut album is called The Distance and documents an amazing diversity of styles, influences and ingredients.
“We refer to our material simply as rock music, but you could also call it alternative metal or modern rock,” says guitarist Björn Daigger, who composed the majority of the tracks together with vocalist Alen Ljubic, adding: “At the end of the day, our range includes elements from pop to death metal. In addition, there are classic orchestra parts as well as ultra-deep seven-string guitars. There are no stylistic taboos in Gloomball.”
Check out a first teaser below:

Germany - April 26th
Europe - April 29th
