In A Glass Darkly is a Dark Rock band from Bogotá, Colombia. Ever since its inception as a gothic project, In A Glass Darkly has combined Gothic Metal's sense of melody and gloomy atmospheres with the dire savagery and heartfelt despair of early Grunge. Always the strange entity, In A Glass Darkly countinues to expand its musical boundaries: from the complex structures of contemporary Post-Rock to the raw aggressiveness of primitive Metal.
In A Glass Darkly takes its name from Sheridan Le Fanu's collection of horror stories, which itself takes its title from the thirteenth chapter of the First Epistle to the Corinthians. In A Glass Darkly refers to how humanity's perception of the world is corrupted by her own vices therefore perceiving both the world and herself as an abomination. Far from following any religious dogma, In A Glass Darkly's concept pervades every aspect of the band: be it music, images or lyrics, and functions as the womb where In A Glass Darkly takes its form, setting it apart from its country's metal scene.
