“Valkyrie” tells the story of a soldier trapped in an endless war, and of the girl he left behind. As with most GH albums, deeper meanings abound for those who take the time to digest the lyrics which are, according to the liner notes, “dedicated to those who battle the effects of trauma, and to those who love and support them.”
What may set this 2016 release apart from previous Glass Hammer albums is the way in which the band went about recording it. According to bassist / lyricist Steve Babb, the band “went for a more live approach this time. We rehearsed the material for several months before finally recording all of the rhythm tracks as if we were playing one very big concert, which is to say, that it was mostly live. We concentrated on vocals and overdubs at the studio, but the foundation of ‘Valkyrie’ was done together in a huge , amazing acoustic space.”
Mixed and mastered for dynamic range rather than loudness, the sonic integrity of each mix has been carefully preserved. “We’re trying to tell a story here,” says Babb. “And it should be apparent from the opening lines of the first track that we are tak- ing on you a journey. A lot of care went into these arrangements, the performance, and naturally in the final mixes. It is our hope that listeners will pick up all of the subtleties and nuances we pack into our songs, and be drawn into the album’s story. ‘Valkyrie’ is meant to be heard in one sitting, which is the best way to really enjoy any good concept album!”
