Holy schnikees this looks amazing! So thrilled to see the trajectory of a band move more and more toward perfection. Incredible. Glass Hammer is simply nothing short of astounding. Thank you, Steve and Fred! So much brightness you offer in a world of immense darkness.
Glass Hammer is in full production on “Valkyrie”, a full-blown concept album that bassist Steve Babb compares to their previous works “Lex Rex” and “The Inconsolable Secret”.
“Still, we’ve managed to come at this album in a totally new way. We have been in the rehearsal room for months, rehearsing the album as if it were to be a live concert. Our shows are so much more edgy than our studio albums and we really wanted to capture that energy. When we felt the ‘show’ was ready, we hit record. That happened over the last weekend and the results are outstanding. There is still a lot of studio work to do, but the basic tracks have been captured and we are well on our way to making “Valkyrie” a very unique album.”
As for the concept Babb was willing to say that, “‘Valkyrie’ is about a soldier who marches away to battle only to find himself embroiled in a war that was far more than he bargained for. The story is intense, as is the music.”
No release date has been set yet but the band has promised “Valkyrie” for sometime in the fall of 2016.
