Album Review: Glamour of the Kill – Savages

Glamour of the Kill“ treten mit ihrer zweiten Scheibe „Savages“ aufs Gaspedal und die rocken, die Briten. Da gibt es nicht viel mehr zu sagen. Dank grossartigem Songwriting, Hooks are strong and bold productions „Glamour of the Kill“ in U.K. bereits sehr erfolgreich. Nun schicken sich die Jungs an, den Rest der Welt zu erobern und mit diesem Album, dass aus „all killer no filler“ is, könnte ihnen das auch Gelingen!

Glamour of the Kill - Savages

Die musikalische Ausrichtung der Truppe ist ihrer eigenen Definition nach „Post-Hardcore“, womit ich allerdings vom Begriff her nichts anfangen kann. Messrs. Davey Richmond (Singing, Bass), Chris Gomerson (Guitar), Mike Kingswood (Guitar) and Ben Thomson (Drums) have an exceptionally good sense of melody and that more consistent. After two EPs („Through The Darkness They March“, 2007 and „Glamour Of The Kill“, 2008) as well as their debut album „The Summoning“ (2011) now moves the second album „Savages“ to the start holes. This was produced by Joey Sturgis (Asking Alexandria).

Glamour of the Kill - Breakfast (feat. Michael Vampire) - Official Lyric Video

Even numbers as the first single „Breakfast“, who is also the opening track of the album and as a guest singer Michael Vampire of the „Vampires Everywhere“ will be there, and the following „A Freak Like Me“, „Rescue Me“, „Leave It All Behind“ oder das einzig eher ruhigere Stück „Tears Of The Sun“ sind einfach klare Volltreffer. Da geht Live sicherlich die Post ab! Auch optisch erfüllt die tätowierte Gruppe alle Ansprüche als Rockband der Neuzeit – eigentlich pfeife ich auf die Optik, doch dass erwähne ich deshalb, weil ein Blick auf die Kerle relativ gut zeigt, which Music they do. Wenn sie auch eine Spur wilder aussehen, als sie dann auf der Platte klingen. Hier ist mir dann „Papa Roach“ eingefallen, I know where the stuff is not good and can not say, if the hardness is higher or not. So pure shot from the hip, the guitar and the aggression level is higher here.

Is extremely positive, that the eleven numbers ultimately provide a single hangover. Ok, for „By the way listeners“ some numbers may sound very similar, but meanwhile you can make anyone more to blame, this is called nowadays Trademarks. Moreover - and this is the decisive factor - the numbers are individually considered absolutely succeeded and now I could really call it a song, the rocks not really. For example, the bouncer „Welcome To Hell“. What a number! Impressive start, cool verses and a chorus hammer! In particular, the alternation between the driving and bludgeoning drums and guitar parts to smooth double vocal lines are really very well done. What then comes to, is, that growls at (almost) was omitted entirely.

Glamour of the Kill - Second Chance (Official Music Video)

Englands erfolgreiche Party Animals werden ihr neues Album in unseren Breiten am 20. September veröffentlichen. The whole gibts in compact seasons, everything is so packed around three minutes, and so the party can start but. This is a disc, which is certainly more often rotate in my player, because the mixture is just right. And a song like „Welcome To Hell“ does not prescribe any. Respect. Play. Necessarily!
