GLASS HAMMER – LEX LIVE DVD
In a recent Background Magazine (Holland) article, Henri Strik calls Glass Hammer’s Lex Rex a “masterpiece”, and names Glass Hammer as “America’s leading prog band.” 1340.mag.com names Glass Hammer as its pick for “number one indie-group of the year”, and the “band to watch explode in 2004”.
Indeed, 2004 began on a high note for Glass Hammer with its critically acclaimed eighth album Shadowlands. Now comes “Lex Live”, the very first Glass Hammer DVD release.
“Lex Live” showcases Glass Hammer’s legendary 8-piece NEARfest 2003 lineup featuring Steve Babb, Fred Schendel, Walter Moore, Matt Mendians and Susie Bogdanowicz. Glass Hammer’s highly acclaimed Lex Rex album is performed in near-entirety, along with music from Chronometree and Perelandra.
Prog fans will discover a high-energy concert, and an edgier incarnation of the band than GH studio albums reveal. Progressive-metal drummer Matt Mendians sees to that, as does front-man and guitarist Walter Moore. The keyboard sounds are as big as ever though, and prog-icon Fred Schendel delivers his greatest performance ever. Needless to say, the Hammond organ is dominant in the mix!
“Just killer! Everything was perfect. The sound was awesome, the setting was great, everything seemed to click magically. I have seen lots of concerts, videos and rock-u-mentaries, but this will be a classic.” Flyingman – 91.5 FM – WAWL
