One of the quintessential modern-day symphonic progressive rock bands, Glass Hammer recently re-released their 2005 album The Inconsolable Secret. The new "deluxe edition" contains all the original material from the two-disc album, as well as a third disc featuring remixes of several of the songs, two with new vocal tracks from present lead singer Jon Davison, who is currently the lead singer for Yes. Glass Hammer is led by multi-instrumentalists Steve Babb and Fred Schendel.

It was quiet that night. My evening walks brought me peace and comfort in the midst of what seemed like a wasted life. That is when I heard Him for the very first time. His voice brought me to tears more than once as He restored my aching soul. The overwhelming grace and unconditional healing love was often ministered to me in form of a song. Each night the song would develop and expand. This was something new, although the song had been heard before.
No matter what style of guitar you play, you will love this DVD! This DVD helps viewers think like musicians. Using familiar tunes, Fred Sokolow teaches the movable fretboard patterns all the pros use.
Glass Hammer’s 17th studio album, ‘The Breaking Of The World” - featuring Carl Groves, Steve Babb, Fred Schendel, Susie Bogdanowicz, Kamran Alan Shikoh and Aaron Raulston. Mastering guru Bob Katz of Digital Domain calls it “the most progressive album by Glass Hammer to date!”
Recorded live at the North East Art Rock Festival (NEARfest) on Sunday, June 29, 2003. Features the Glass Hammer choir, and a guest appearance by Rich Williams of Kansas performing “Portrait (He Knew).”
This, the third Glass Hammer release, was originally a limited edition run of 1000 copies for the real fanatics who simply couldn’t wait for the next full length GH epic. Featuring live rehearsal tracks from “Perelandra” and “Journey of the Dunadan” as well as unrecorded material from the period just after “Journey of the Dunadan” was released, the album has an irreverent, carefree feel to it and features scorching playing from all concerned.
Perilous is the thirteenth studio album by American progressive rock band Glass Hammer, released on October 23, 2012 by Arion Records/Sound Resources. On this album Kamran Alan Shikoh is playing all guitars again, after Cor Cordium in which singer Jon Davison played all acoustic guitars, and the last album with Davison as the sole lead vocalist. It is also noteworthy to note that the song titles, when read in sequence, form a kind of poem.
Cor Cordium is Glass Hammer's 2011 follow-up to last year's highly acclaimed IF, an album which found its place in numerous Top 10 and Best of 2010 lists throughout the prog world. To keep the momentum going from last year's success, singer Jon Davison and guitarist Alan Shikoh return with Glass Hammer co-founders Steve Babb and Fred Schendel to create the band's fourteenth studio album. Cor Cordium features six tracks, including the highly addictive Salvation Station, the epic-length To Someone and the climactic She, A Lonely Tower; art work and a 16 page full-color layout by artist Tom Kuhn and audiophile mastering by Bob Katz of Digital Domain. Cor Cordium will be on the wish list of symphonic prog fans worldwide and a must-have for Glass Hammer enthusiasts.
