Album Notes
As a 4 piece outfit from Miami, The Glasses Otter serve as the antagonist in the technical metal/hardcore genre bender. An unintentional love 'em or hate 'em stigma has followed the band from their local involvment through their handful of tours. Their fast paced music mixes odd timing with fluid grooves using intricate and thoughtful guitar playing ala Botch layered with thick driving bass and backed by complex and intelligent drumming in the vein of Converge. Throw in vocals that range from somber speaking to, and more often, unstable relentless screaming and what you're left with is a metalcore villain. The Glasses Otter backs all of this up with an erratic live show that is both frightening and entertaining. Check out their new EP "Asleep on the Carousel" available on Seven Trumpets Recordings.

CD Baby

Fusing intricate math rock precision and still retaining the extreme force of a credible metal band is an idea that looks good on paper, but when it comes time to strap on the gear and go for it, there are countless ways it can go wrong. Miami's The Glasses Otter have managed to not only sidestep those pratfalls, they seem poised to crush any obstacle that may stand in their way. Verving from tight picked melodic riffs into assaulting walls of noise, each of these songs has a few songs within itself, keeping the listener off guard and never knowing what's going to knock them down next. Smart metal seems like an odd commodity at times, yet these guys have a knack for lyrics that are serious without being trite and guitar gnashing that will keep you on your toes.


Reviving Metalcore
Having seen these guys as many times as I have, I know that they throw down like no other. Just when I thought technical metalcore was dead, The Glasses Otter have brought the revival by themselves. Yes, people will compare them to the Dillinger Escape plan, but they're wrong. The Glasses Otter are bringing the newest of the new school with their joyous shredding of love, hate, and beer.
