The new OLD MAN GLOOM album “Light Of Meaning” (aka Seminar VIII) sees the notorious experimental supergroup forge on their legacy after a slight suspension in uncertainty following the passing of bassist/vocalist Caleb
Scofield. It was decided that the remaining members Aaron Turner (Sumac/Isis), Nate Newton (Converge), and
drummer Santos Montano would continue to forge on with OLD MAN GLOOM and would bring in Scofield’s
former Cave In bandmate, Stephen Brodsky, to take Caleb’s place amongst the pulse.
“Light Of Meaning” continues OLD MAN GLOOM’s shenanigans following their “Ape Of God” albums (the
albums where the band trolled everyone by releasing two different albums with the same album title amongst
bewilderment, amusement, and outrage from people on the internet). Through monolithic sonic tapestries sewn
throughout, “Light Of Meaning” blossoms as a moving tribute to Scofield where the band have even incorporated
material that Scofield had laid down previously for new OMG music. “Light Of Meaning”, which was recorded and
mixed by three acclaimed heavy music producers, namely Matt Bayles, Kurt Ballou, and Randall Dunn, is another
towering OLD MAN GLOOM masterwork through earth crumbling riffs, post-hardcore brutality, sprawling noise
transmissions, experimental ambient sonic subdivisions and epic impenetrable melancholy.
