GLIB: Demo: CS

Aug 01, 2019

A new band from the land of song, Wales. However, there is a distinct lack of melodicism from a quintet which seems more at home taking a Black Flag type approach to what it’s doing. I know it’s sometimes a cliché to namecheck Black Flag, but it’s definitely relevant here with Glib offering a nihilistic take on music, with hardly a care given for those on the receiving end. One other noteworthy comparison would be Christ On Parade, if that band was slightly less manic. This both bludgeons and boxes ears as it thunders along, but is blessed with a mix that delivers a clean-yet-tough, sludgy sound. An extremely promising debut. –Rich Cocksedge (Self-released, theglibcampaign.bandcamp.com)
