Decibel Magazine is currently streaming Spotted Horse, the anticipated new full-length from Austin, Texas-based blackened post-hardcore trio GLASSING, in its devastating entirety.
Set for release Friday, May 17th via Brutal Panda Records, the band seamlessly fuses elements of black metal and post-hardcore with ambient explorations, dream-pop sensibilities, and grinding walls of sound that defy categorization. Decibel lauds GLASSING’s, “unique amalgam of suffocating textures, crushing blast beats and black metal-inspired atmosphere.”
Adds the band of the release, “This album is the result of what we now see as a contempt for illusions, the same illusions that bring others so much happiness. We allowed ourselves to become immersed in the austere and when the dust cleared, the plateau we arrived at we simply called Spotted Horse.”

Cold sand on a barren coastline. Spectral blackness. Godless nights. The calmness of undisturbed water. The illusion of belonging. Death as a gift. These are but a minute illustration of the vast array of themes and explorations deliberated upon by GLASSING on their sophomore opus Spotted Horse. Recorded with Andrew Hernandez at Estuary Recording Facility in Austin, with cover art by This Will Destroy You’s Chris King, Spotted Horse is, at its core, a construction of dynamic, beautifully unsettling soundscapes, and nothingness unsurfaced at once pulsing and punishing. Fans of Deafheaven, Oathbreaker, Envy, Birds In Row, Astronoid, Alcest, Sigur Ros, and This Will Destroy You, pay heed.
GLASSING will kick off a US summer tour next month. The journey will officially commence on June 14th in San Antonio, Texas and run through July 13th in Fort Worth, Texas. See all confirmed dates below.
