This post's artist is from the October 2015 Mix. This is track #12.
GLASIR is a band from Dallas that started releasing online EPs in 2014 and recently released the 'Unborn' EP in 2015. By no means are the three songs groundbreaking, but fans of atmospheric instru-metal fans should take a gander because the band knows what they want to do and they do it very well.
"Precipice" is a decent opener but also the weakest of the three songs on the 'Unborn' EP. It weaves a dreamy web of isolated notes that tangle and sway together in the song's atmospheric breeze. This track sounds much akin to bands like Black Clouds and Ornaments. "Until We Dissolve" rises and falls like the tides of the ocean, slow but always building until the sounds crash forth like pounding waves. "Into the Void" utilizes some cool drumming during the mid-section slowdown, and the song as well as the new EP itself reminds me a lot of Mono and Tomydeepestego.
The demo and first EP titled 'Sickening Joy' are pretty much the same but with slightly different recordings and quality, so I didn't include a song off the 'Demo' below. Regardless I'd say 'Sickening Joy' is worth a listen, especially "Lucid", the EP's opener.
