By Glamour of the Kill
Loud riffs scream out from 'The Summoning' with album opener 'If Only She Knew' and continue throughout the album, which mirrors the band's gothic look.
This is the debut album from York metallers Glamour of the Kill, who have previously released 2 EPs. The band is currently on a touring circuit of the UK, doing intimate acoustic sessions in record stores. This is a warm up for what is to be unleashed next month on their headline tour across the UK, which comes to an end in Leeds at The Cockpit, excellent work.
The Summoning is a mixture of screaming lyrics and anthemic choruses that grip your soul and make you want to headbang throughout the album.
If this is an album to capture GOTK's style and get the world to notice them, then they have indeed done that, with attitude packed into the album it is worth turning it up to 11.
As well as heavy songs, there are a few down beat, guitar strumming ones, such as the album title song 'The Summoning,' which takes it down a pace. The melodies and heartfelt words pour out, and prove GOTK aren't all about the loudness.
Stand out tracks include 'Feeling Alive' which has gained rave reviews for its video and has been featured as Kerrang TV's video of the week. Other great tracks are album opener 'If Only She Knew' and free download 'Supremecy.'
As 2011 progresses Glamour of the Kill will sure to be part of the rock news and gain slots on the big festivals this summer.
'The Summoning' is sure to begin when the guys hit the road to play the album live and give the in your face performance we are expecting from these excellent tracks.
Glamour of the Kill's debut album 'The Summoning' is out now and you can catch them from 17th February in Hull and finishing their extensive tour on 2nd April in Leeds.
