Seeping in with swarming echos is “THROES” by Tidal Gloom. An atmosphere of swallowed remorse is channeled through both the instrumentals and the visuals. Solemn. Gripping. Textured. The guitars tell as much of a story as the vocals with their pacing and continuing grasp of the tone of the song. Urgent vocals hellishly bring to life the damp woe of a cloudy day. Take a listen to this extravagant piece below!
“While writing ‘Throes’, my goal was to conceptualize violence and sadness in music but present it in a way that is catchy, memorable and, at times, pretty. I felt like this song was pretty fucking sad and violent when it was just my instrumentals but once Rich presented the lyrics, subject matter and melodies to me, I knew this song was going to be heavy.” – Matt Popowski of Tidal Gloom
