ALBUM DESCRIPTION
Screaming Hammond and Moog solos by one of progressive rock’s premier keyboardists, soaring steel guitar leads, lush beds of Mellotrons, mandolins and acoustic guitars, soaring sopranos, vocals rich with complex harmonies and counterpoint, that signature crunching bass guitar, swirling analog synth leads awash in echo, the grandeur and pomp of the pipe organ — all that and more are present on Glass Hammer’s seventh release, LEX REX. “The last years we have noticed that every new Glass Hammer album shows a real progression in the band’s style and quality. Their previous album Chronometree got a lot of credits, but now they have delivered a CD that belongs at the absolute top. LEX REX is a concept album, one long piece of detailed and melodic Sympho Prog, powerful and with a lot of influences from the seventies. Screaming Hammond and Moog solos, soaring steel guitar leads, mellotron tapestries, a crunching bass guitar, rich vocals etc. in the vein of Yes, Genesis and ELP. A real masterpiece!” — Arthur Haggenburg – SymfoCity Reviews
