OhioProg announces the addition of Glass Hammer and Kinetic Element to the OhioProg 2012 festival line-up.
Glass Hammer is a symphonic-progressive rock band from the USA. Multi-instrumentalists Steve Babb and Fred Schendel formed the band in 1992 and will be celebrating their 20th anniversary at OhioProg 2012. The band recently released their 14th studio album Cor Cordium which is a follow-up to last year's highly acclaimed If. Glass Hammer is certainly one of the most well-known and highly regarded progressive rock acts over the last 20 years and will be featured as a headliner alongside FM, Nightingale and Arena. They will play ahead of FM on Saturday, September 8, 2012.
You can listen to two tracks from Glass Hammer on the OhioProg Soundcloud and/or the Glass Hammer artist page. "Nothing Box" from their latest Cor Cordium and "If the Stars" from last year's If.http://www.ohioprog.com/audiohttp://www.ohioprog.com/glass-hammer
Kinetic Element hail from Richmond, Virginia and released their debut album Powered by Light in 2009. The band formed as an outlet to perform the solo material of composter and keyboard player Mike Visaggio. The group quickly created their own identity and began playing alongside some of today's foremost progressive rock acts including Circa and IZZ. Kinetic Element will perform in the first slot on Sunday, September 9, 2012. The Kinetic Element artist page will be updated with audio tracks soon.http://www.ohioprog.com/kinetic-element
