GLYDER
BACKROADS TO BYZANTIUM
SPV

Glyder returns with a blue collar hard rock sound on the group’s latest 10-track excursion BACKROADS TO BYZANTIUM. Liberally taking from Thin Lizzy’s distinguished twin-guitar melodic thrust (“Don’t Make Their Mistake”, “Long Gone”) with touches of Skynyrd’s southern charm (“End of the Line”), this fellow Irish band ‘s contrived lyrical approach (“Down and Out”) and single-minded devotion to the 70’s arena rock era (“Even if I Don’t Know Where I’m Going”) is performed with gusto and peppered with good intent but ultimately comes off as all too familiar and distinctly unoriginal sans the multi-vocal and acoustic Clapton-esque arrangement of “Motions of Time”. –Mike SOS
