Reflection of Glory

In the growing landscape of symphonic heavy metal, Reflection of Glory is set apart by its Christian worldview and alternative metal roots.

With male-fronted vocals and alternative influences (instead of the typical female-fronted power metal) Reflection of Glory becomes more than just a 'Christian alternative' in symphonic metal: the sound and style of Kamelot meets the power and depth of Theocracy.

All of Reflection of Glory's music is written, recorded, and produced individually at home by Barry Dreier. His latest album "Reborn" marks a significant shift in sound and vision. Recognizing the contribution of great symphonic metal bands as a means of escape and catharsis, he seeks to join that musical tradition while speaking towards the hope of the Gospel.

Preceding releases, like the still-available "Bird's Eye View (2014) and "Christmas" (2016), carry a lighter rock sound born from singer-songwriter roots. Barry has intentionally re-imagined his sound to match the message for the 2017 release of "Reborn."

"Reborn" is a culmination of years of musical, technical, and theological training. Barry's love for music has been lifelong: a bass player since 2002 at 13 years old, he earned a bachelor's degree in music. Recording and production became a hobby in high school, and he has since worked with over a dozen different artists in the studio. Over time, his love for the classical symphony orchestra, along with amplifiers and drums, fused together these inclinations into this new alternative symphonic sound.

With a fresh musical identity, Barry is already anticipating and working towards Reflection of Glory's next independent release. As a single musician producing music of this kind and scale, touring is not currently an option - but he always keeps a hopeful eye towards the future.

To God be the glory.

"And we all, with unveiled face, reflecting the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit." 2 Corinthians 3:18
