Glacier picture
Glacier biography
GLACIER blend many elements from melodic / progressive rock, jazz and classical musics, with strong vocal melodies and intricate instrumental passages to form their unique brand of music. Specific references are hard to give, but think PENDRAGON, CYAN and many of the more obscure English prog bands from the eighties and you should have some idea. "Monument" is the bands debut album, but draws from their vast back catalogue of material.

Review by Hogweed Returns

4 stars Glacier is a typical British band established in the end of the 70's. I've listened to this album on a website called "progstreaming" and I must say that I'm not disappointed. A bit of an odd album that must grow on you (before judgement). In between the songs there are a lot of humoristic passages and the songs are in the mood of Genesis and in particular Steve Hackett. The overall impression is very nice and the vocalist reminds me of a 70's band from Holland called the Dizzy Man's Band with also lots of humour in there songs (You should check them out!). The two songs and highlights on the CD are "Projections" and "One Man Alone". Let yourself be enchanted by the music and try their first album "Monument" from 2001 (yes a 14 years gap) which also gives much pleasure with songs written in the 80's and 90's. The song "Bring Down The Rain" could be a hitsingle! Four Royal Stars For Me ****

Review by apps79

3 stars UK Neo Prog band from Durham, formed in 1978 as Contraband and based around guitarist John Youdale.They soon changed their name to Glass Ear and then to Glacier, but the band called it off one day in the 80's after the numerous line-up changes and the dissapointment of being underappreciated by record companies due to their sound.In mid-90's though Glacier and John Youdale returned with Bob Mulvey on bass, female singer Heather Davies, Peter Cornforth on keys and Graeme Ash on drums.The late 90's found Glacier working on old and new songs, which were completed with Dave Kidson on keys and new singer Dave Birdsall, who was also a member of the early days of the band.The compilation ''Monument'' came out in 2001 as a self-produced CD.

Glacier played typical British Neo Progressive Rock along the lines of JADIS, IQ and ABEL GANZ with strong emphasis on the catchy melodies, the sensitive vocals and the careful keyboard textures.All tracks are well-crafted, pretty memorable and very melodic with some nice guitar solos, easy-going choruses and synth explorations, while the longer ones contain also some space for instrumental soundscapes of symphonic nature, which are pretty good.The atmosphere ranges from pleasant tunes to dramatic lyrical moments, surrounded by more grandiose musicianship and will please all fans of the genre.The vocals of Birdsall are warm, while previous singer Heather Davies appears also in a few tracks.On the other hand it is certain that the overall performance sounds pretty safe despite the hidden potential, while a few tracks are closer to Melodic Rock than even Neo Prog.Still the good arrangements will make the listener overcome these minor flaws.

Glacier's unlucky incidents continued after the release, as the band had suffered again from constant line-up shakes, while the major content of a second album was almost ready.Hopefully the new material officially sees the light someday.

Pretty good work for all fans of 80's British Prog, Neo Prog or light Symphonic Prog.Melodic and very intense at moments.Recommended.

Review by maryes

3 stars n my opinion the British band GLACIER in his entitled album "Monument" brings in their compositions a type of attempt of transforming to progressive rock in something that approaches more than a popular format of music.. Leaving aside some characteristics of the good and old progressive rock, such as sudden changes of rhythm s and more complicated vocal and instrumental harmonies and melodies reducing like this the resonant complexity in most of the tracks. In that way, brings me the memory bands as ASIA AND STYX and the influences that these same bands brought in their albums (YES, KING CRIMSOM, ELP etc...), and in some moments something of the space-rock of bands as ELOY in very smaller scale.To reinforce the presence of those influences the guitar player Jonh Youdalee and the keyboard player Dave Kidson shows a very approximate style of Steve Howe / Steve Hackett and Rick Wakeman/Keith Emerson. But, the rythimic session is very simple !!! I consider as the best moments of the disk the musics "Think of England", "Monument" and "East of Arabia." My rate is 3 stars!!!
