Many of you may remember the Middle-earth album by Glass Hammer–a album that was “recorded” at the Prancing Pony (a great album!). Glass Hammer is back with their latest offering, “The Inconsolable secret”: Prog-rock legends Glass Hammer (Journey of the Dunadan, The Middle-earth Album) prepare to release their new Tolkien / Lewis inspired masterpiece, “The Inconsolable Secret”; a double-album enhanced CD package featuring art by Roger Dean. The new masterwork features Glass Hammer performing with both orchestra and choir. The concept album is based on an epic poem by GH founder Steve Babb that is included with the disc. “It’s very much in the style of Tolkien’s Lays of Beleriand”, says Steve. “The music isn’t entirely prog this time. We dabble in Celtic, and in big symphonic scores. Its certainly the biggest thing we’ve ever attempted!” Visit their website at https://www.glasshammer.com to view The Inconsolable Secret trailer.
