GLASS HAMMER erträumen sich inmitten von Corona-Krise und Tornado-Einschlägen ihre Prog-Fantasy-Welt

Most recently, the Americans Steve Babb and Fred Schendel had great success with their project Glass Hammer. The genre-ironic story about the time-traveling prog nerd Tom on "Chronomonaut" (2018), for example, amused the otherwise sometimes very serious retroprog fan community. Now Glass Hammer return to their roots. Already their 1993 debut "Journey Of The Dunadan" was inspired by Tolkien. On "Dreaming City" the "Sword & Sorcery" factor (subgenre of fantasy literature) is now also extremely high. And also musically they have come up with some new ideas. In any case, everything is ready for the prog round table.

Destination unknown

The sparrows whistled it off the roofs for months on end, now it's official: Led Zeppelin, another 70s icon, takes part in the illustrious reunion hustle and bustle of modern times. So far, however, without a new album, let alone a complete tour, but "only" with a one-off show on 10 December in London's O2 Arena. But already the announcement of the group's participation in the "Ahmet Ertegün Tribute Concert" was enough to put 20 million fans into hysteria.
