Quick Introductory Interview

Interview with Gloomthread.
1. Who are you and how did the band get started?

I am Gloomthread. This project was started several years ago as a challenge to write, record, and release one full doom song each Halloween. The first one was in 2011. However, it was not until winter 2016 that the Gloomthread name was officially born.

2. Why did you choose Doom, and how would you describe your style?

Growing up I was fascinated by things like apathy, sorrow, grief, loss, and death. As I explored the different subgenres of metal I found that “funeral” doom was one I resonated with the most. Gloomthread’s style is more on the slow, melodic, introspective side of things.

3. What would you consider to be the high point of your career so far?

Releasing an album has really put things into perspective.

4. Which three bands most influenced you?

Funeral Tears, Mournful Congregation and Skepticism

5. What are your plans for the near future?

Right now Gloomthread is a solo project, but I am thinking about recruiting musicians to turn it into a full band for live performances. I also have other creative masks that need to be worn – ambient guitar project Chrysanthemum and atmospheric “black metal” (term used loosely) Awren.

6. If there is anything you would like to add, the last words are yours.

Support the artists you like so they can keep creating.
