Gloson Sweden

In the summer of 2012 in Sweden, a group of individuals came together with a solitary goal in mind, to create dark music offset with the smallest glimmer of hope. Instead of being inspired by political religious themes, the band turned to their own personal and internal wastelands to see what would manifest from their subconscious; writing within this very cruel world. ... more

Track Name: Prowler
Reality blinks
Through intervals
And smothers a wish
(cast away by his neglect)
Only crooked roads
Flesh decieves
Exposes the roots and starves the mind

Has been beaten and burned out of the skull
(betrayal struck a deafening blow)
Sweeps of blighted streams
Drowns the faith and feeds the fraud

Feed the grief
Drift away
Breach the waves
Burn the crops
Break the oath

Spinal growths, heavy steps
Vertigo takes shape
Destroy the road against your will


He who burns in a shelter
He who smothers a wish

Can’t see the face of the purpose
Can’t feel the blaze of the sun
Can’t feel the warmth that’s been given
Unstable walls coming down
Now every step is a burden
And every breeze is of doubt
Track Name: Fabulist
Smoke engulfs the radiant light
From fake and pallid eyes
Roads began unfurling only to
Wither and burst by decay

The river of trust reverse direction
Rusty nails pierce the honest

Eyes like starlight tricks
Cold blood dries in dismay
Gaze upon the soil that’s been given
And let it burn, burn away

The river of trust reverse direction
Dried up blood of the honest
Burns, burns away

Reach out and spread the word, a divine interference
Blow off the tainted steam, confusion reigns
Follow the liars path, a part of our nature
Embrace the failures, a letdown is always near
Track Name: Antlers
I watched the feathers (closely) as they hovered above fire
This season has drawn them down to perish (into nothing)
The crown is growing, inhale the smog
The blaze reminds me of my trail to walk alone
I wear the antlers of the Grim
The sun deceived me

I felt the tremor inside
A sudden shift, a new approach
No reason to hold on, I detach my wings and fall
Counting off my failures to find the measures of crucial weight

We live - to surrender
We crawl - to perish in dust
We dwell - in doubt among fools
We starve - in seclusion

I wear the antlers of the Grim
The sun deceived me
Track Name: Cringe
Towering shadows falls upon the beacon light
Stretching out arms, ghastly smiles reflects the blaze
Crawl back to retrace – the void of broken dreams
Fulfill and replace – redeemed only by neglect

Crawl through the furnace – a blaze of burning oak is claiming your ghost
Feel the flesh crumble, all that you want to be
At one with the dirt

Disease is clawing through the autumn breeze
Choking the breath and stills the current of joy

See how much you’ve grown – a fatal embrace
Teach what you’ve been shown – and see past the horrors
Sole, burned, desolate road
Track Name: Specter
You are a lighthouse towards a minefield
Where I find comfort in broken glass
Neither a blessing or a curse
Lingering spirit of my shell, you're home

I can not see you, but you complete me
I combine with nothing to become all
I embrace thee, my specter of failure

My failure
Track Name: Embodiment
We are all lost
In the sea of failure
Endlessly searching
For the shores
Running away
From the vultures
Driven by hope
To maybe one day
Die with memories
Not with dreams
