Defining what it is to build worlds through music and its associated lyricism.
There are few like The Gloom In The Corner – a band as intentional about their musical prowess as they are about their visual persona, the likes of which is a cinematic feat to strive for. Dubbed as cinemacore, The Gloom In The Corner define the tag with a narrative driven approach that is brought to life through artwork, lyricism, and of course, film, making for one multi-sensory experience. The band now announce their sophomore full-length, Trinity, as well as a signing to the metalcore stronghold that is SharpTone Records. With a momentous new single, Ronin, featuring Ryo Kinoshita (Crystal Lake) and a compelling story to tell, The Gloom In The Corner have rolled out the red carpet for an ambitious chapter to come.
Frontman Mikey Arthur comments on the single:
“‘Ronin’, from a lore perspective, re-introduces ‘Homecoming’ protagonist Ethan Hardy after his death at the end of that EP. Upon donning a new suit of armor, known as the ‘Black Cloud’, he pushes his emotions deep inside, channeling them into a display of violence. Hardy wreaks havoc across Hell under no command but his own, earning the name of ‘The Ronin’. The redux of both the ‘Witch Hunt’ and ‘Rodent’ breakdown not only serves as an Easter egg for old fans, but continues the story begun in 'Homecoming' with more brutality and gore.”
“As always, the track serves as an analogy, albeit a tragic one. Despite how much you may ask for help, or that people can see that you’re in pain, you’re on your own and the only one who can fix you is you. 'Ronin' is an angry, relentless tirade that, in short says; ‘I came to you when I needed help after you said that you would, and you sat back and did nothing. Go fuck yourself.’”
