Glamour Of The Kill

The UK press hails Glamour Of The Kill as “set to hit the big time” and the rest of the world is about to get in on the action. Drawing from a deep well of hard-driving music with rebellious disregard for the restrictive “rules” of nitpicking subgenres, Glamour Of The Kill raise the flags high for the partying vibe of ‘80s hair metal and the soaring energy of today’s more aggressive vanguard of sound. A four piece band where everyone’s attention to musicianship is paramount yet never puts the goodtime atmosphere at risk, Glamour Of The Kill expertly consume and utilize the gallop of Maiden, the party rock of the Sunset Strip, the twin guitars of Metallica and the vibe of Thin Lizzy to create a sound uniquely and steadfastly of their very own. A mixture of energized pop and crunchy metal, Glamour of the Kill’s priorities boil down to two things: big riffs and even bigger choruses. Tastemakers from Big Cheese to Dragonforce’s Herman Li have sung the band’s praises and with good reason. When frontman Davey Richmond revealed to Kerrang! that various tracks from the likes of Avenged Sevenfold, Slipknot, Killswitch Engage, Pantera and Iron Maiden changed his life, it offered something of a roadmap for the combustible music Glamour of the Kill has made their stock and trade. The band’s debut full-length, The Summoning, is a breath of fresh air in a cookie cutter scene that often takes itself too seriously. Early EP tracks like “So Who Said Romance is Dead?” and “A Hope in Hell” showed strong promise and The Summoning delivers the goods. The band stalks the stage with what one review called “the cocky confidence that gave Axl Rose his edge.” The lifestyle is certainly there, too. YouTube videos abound of the guys having a laugh and having a drink (or ten). “If Only She Knew” is a song for all of the guys who’ve found themselves trying to hide text messages from the missus. From Richmond’s high-pitched melodious wail to the band’s shredding solos, acoustic passages and broadminded instincts, Glamour of the Kill offers many things to many people. There are anthems, ballads, solos galore and of course, those choruses. The band’s aim is to create nothing less than the type of songs that live and breathe within listeners; songs that become a valued component of that person’s life. Glamour of the Kill now have their sights set on the world beyond their native England, with the strength of their homeland fanbase securely supporting them. British invasions from the Beatles to Oasis to Maiden have come in waves and GOTK are ready to seize their opportunity. “We started a band because this is what we love to do,” Davey concludes. “You get to do what you love and have thousands of other people enjoy it with you. I couldn’t ask for anything more. As long as we love what we are doing, we are going to take it as far as we can.” Davey Richmond - Vocals / Bass Chris Gomerson - Guitar/ Vocals Mike Kingswood - Lead Guitar/ Vocals Ben Thomson - Drums / Vocals
