Austin post-metal group Glassing have announced a new album. On April 26, they’ll release From the Other Side of the Mirror via Pelagic. Today they’ve shared a new song from the album, the intense and massive sounding “Defacer.” Hear it below.

Glassing’s Dustin Coffman said of the new song, “‘Defacer’ is one of our more powerful compositions, it’s structure is longer than most songs we play with this amount of intensity and its execution is punishing. The album as a whole is riddled with heavy and brutal performances but I would say ‘Defacer’ is the pinnacle of it. 

“The music itself mirrors the internal conflict disclosed in the lyrics. The song’s theme unravels a confession: behind our self-deprecation there lies a shield against accountability and criticism. The idea throughout the song is to relinquish this shield, let in the illumination and risk in the hopes of one day looking back to see an honest artist.”

From the Other Side of the Mirror follows 2021’s Twin Dream. It’s featured on our list of the Best Metal Albums of 2021.
