I don't really know much about UNDER GLASS other than the band contacted me to do a premiere back in 2017 for their EP single "Behold My Valor" as well as contributed a killer cover of "Unreleased #1" originally by Jeromes Dream. The last thing I'm aware of is the likely surfacing of more music this year in the form of two EPs, 'Collapse This Path of Existence' and 'Every Breath is Suffering'. Oh, what do they sound like? Dirty, dark, pukey, shrieky hardcore/emo-violence. Think old Celebration dancing violently with Usurp Synapse and you're pretty much there.

Their first official song release was the cover, which does an excellent job of recreating the raw passion and sense of urgency after the initial, bouncy, 25-second intro. On July 3rd I dropped "Behold My Valor" from 'Wading in Petulant States' which released in full a few days later. The first single gave a more defined taste of what was to come on the EP - essentially a short burst of vicious, venomous emo-violence, especially once the song explodes at 26 seconds with a powerful, driving section that builds and eventually goes supernova at the one-minute mark. Good lord I still love this song. Next up is "All is Fluid", a 59-second Usurp Synapse fest, complete with an eerie/weird first half and a behemoth of a second half. "A Solution Lost to the Ages" is the middle jam on the release, and what a jam! In only 51 seconds you'll get a face-full of nuclear blast, with the mushroom cloud pushing maximum fallout at the 28-second mark when the second set of vocals are unleashed upon us. "Fist Over Hand Over Fist" is the longest song released thus far, coming in at a whopping two minutes 😉. It's definitely on the slower, epic side of things, moving along like a behemoth through the woods, decimating trees like they were breadsticks. Closer "Duly Noted" is a beast of a song that houses some seriously evil screaming alongside a plethora of palm-mutes and massive breakdowns, with an ending drowned in feedback.
