OLD MAN GLOOM Streaming New Track “Predators”

Old Man Gloom (Ex-Isis, Converge, Cave In) have premiered a new track from their forthcoming album, The Ape of God, over at Noisey. The new track is the six minute “Predators” and being subjected to its sludge-ridden riffs, which are propelled by Caleb Scolfield’s (Cave In, Zozobra) gruff vocals, is like being flattened under a train repeatedly. Feel free to stream the new track after the break and check out previously released track, “The Lash”, if you missed it.

The Ape of God will be released on November 11th. A documentary film on the band is slated to premiere this Thursday, October 9th. The trailer for that film can be seen after the break as well.
