Glista hatched on December 2015. A year of composition, early membership changes and even a test performance later, the first concert followed for the five-piece band. By the end of September 2017, the band had a busy concert season behind it, with performances at the majority of Slovenian alternative venues as well as a couple of festivals.
As the summer came to an end, it was high time to retire to the bunker and break some strings and drumsticks in preparation for the first album recording. The drummer leaving the band somewhat slowed the whole process, but the band kept on working. After a long search, a new drummer joined them, chemistry kicked in and the process was back on track, with the pace well above expectations. The band started recording their debut album Death Machinery in March.
A Grindcore superposition of punk and metal, reflecting a wide spectrum of influences that include many old school hc-punk, crust, death, thrash, black metal bands, in addition to some classical music and a pinch of disco, set Glista on stage with representatives of various genres, such as Ratos de Porao, Nulla Osta, Bolesno Grinje, Extreme Smoke 57, Brujeria and Gutalax just to name a few.
