n. (plural of glacier English)
Glaciers is a studio album by American hip hop production duo Blue Sky Black Death. It was released on Fake Four Inc. in 2013.
Most songs of Glaciers have runtimes over 10 minutes; the idea derives from a 13-minute song the duo made back in 2012. The album was almost entirely created using the ACID Pro 2.0 software. It features guest appearances from Child Actor, Lotte Kestner, and JMSN. The cover was designed by tattoo artist MxM.
Michael Scala of Prefix described the album as "[Blue Sky Black Death's] most grandiose, cumulative opus".
