Glyder – Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow

Releasedate: 23-04-2010; Label: SPV/Steamhammer
By: Sabine van Gameren

Glyder is an Irish Classic Rock band that started in 2004. The band has shared stages with a whole lot of big names since that and now they release their third album called: “Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow” via SPV/ Steamhammer.

Glyder hits you mostly on the melodic side, though the vocals are quite upfront in the music. If you close that of and focus on the guitars you find many interesting riffs, not the most original perhaps, but just pleasant enough to observe. The band gives the impression of being more a live band rather than a band you keep on listening on cd. The sound is a bit distant somehow and it gives the feeling that this is more something you have to see as well to get the major thrill. Nevertheless the music is calm and melodic, perfectly suitable for a summer night, a road trip or a background sound while working. If you hoped for that powerful spark, the band is not giving you that with this album. It ain’t new or refreshing, but is nevertheless an album that you listen anyway. Just try to remember the name, you must remember it when making decisions on what you want to go see on a festival.
