Glasswork biography
Glasswork was born in 2013, as a new musical reunion for Álvaro SABIN (guitars), Miguel Ángel REY (drums) and César RODRIGUEZ (keyboards), who already knew each other from ETERNAL DREAM, a power metal band from Málaga, in which Álvaro and César played for 5 years and Miguel Ángel for one year. However, the idea of Glasswork was in César and Miguel's minds since two more years ago.
The sound that Glasswork tries to create is inspired by some 70s musicians like KING CRIMSON, EMERSON, LAKE AND PALMER, Mike OLDFIELD, TRIANA,etc, and some other actual bands like TOOL, ASTRA or OPETH, among a huge list of prog rock and metal bands.
In its first year of life, Glasswork got the second prize in the contest Málaga Crea Rock (Málaga creates rock), and released his first album called Knots, which lyrics are inspired in Ronald Laing's thoughts, a scottish psychiatrist.

Glasswork Heavy Prog

Review by rdtprog
Special Collaborator Heavy / RPI / Symphonic Prog Team

4 stars From the power metal band Eternal Dream, these three musicians were thinking about this new project long time ago. Being inspired by many old and new progressive rock and metal bands, their music still have this own identity. The album starts with a strange and dark song with piano and drums high in the mix. In fact, the production of the whole album is very clear with synths/drums/guitars being clearly mixed. The band has cleverly chosen to put more instrumental parts to the music with occasional vocals in English. A nice addition is the use of harmonica in the song "Being Man" and the flute in some songs. There is some nice balance between the heavy guitar riffs and the delicate keyboards lines. "Hopeless" has a nice crescendo and some irresistible melody with a duel flute/drums. "Song for Ariadne" brings the Hammond sound upfront and a Grimskunk vibe. "Being Man" is a look back to the past with the guitars and this song is different from the rest of the album with plenty of harmonica. The vocals on "Beside Me" are working well with the music while the guitars, the keyboards and the flute have their own time and space to shine.

I didn't find any weak track on this album, and when you enjoy the production and the songwriting you can only, think that this band got some potential for the future. Let's hope for some more releases soon.

Thanks to rdtprog for the artist addition.
