Old Man Gloom is a heavy metal band that combines sludge, doom and post-metal into one style. Formed in New Mexico and based in Massachusetts, the group dropped its first album Meditations in B, in 1999. After another three LPs, the band fell into a period of inactivity while its members focused on other projects. Eight years later, Old Man Gloom suddenly announced a world tour and a new album, titled No, in 2012. The group has since cemented itself as a staple in the Boston hardcore and metalcore scenes.
