Live Review: Glamour Of The Kill – Fibbers, York, March 19th 2009

Tonight, York’s 200-capacity Fibbers is packed out for local heroes Glamour Of The Kill. With people queuing for as long as 5-hours to get into the venue tonight, this was to be highly anticipated.

With the door time pushed back to quarter-to-8 due to soundchecks, the bill was cut to only two bands. Dead Rebellion set out to get the all-ages crowd jumping, with a mash up of Run-DMC and Innerpartysystem-ish tracks. While they seem to garter a reaction, many of the venue’s punters remain sweat-free, and dissatisfied.

Tonight’s headliners have come a long way in just under a year, opening the Download festival mainstage and releasing their brilliant self-titled EP, the buzz about this band was to be brilliantly supported tonight, as the four hometown heroes take to the stage circa 10pm. Bursting into material from their EP, and their earlier Demo, it doesn’t take long for frontman Davey Death to conjuour the crowd into a mosh frenzy in such a tiny space. Tracks such as Kiss Of Death and a taster track from their forthcoming album, World’s End, spark bellowing chant backs and all out unity from all. While their set seemed short at only 40-minutes long, for a band with only one commercial EP to their name, they are bound to be destined for greater things – and bigger venues, in the very near future. A brilliant performance.

Glamour Of The Kill tour the UK as main support to horror punk act Wednesday 13 from 20th March.
