Influenced by the axe-wielding rock of Megadeth, the screaming emo of Bullet for My Valentine, and the punk-pop of blink-182, Glamour of the Kill are a four-piece metalcore band from York. Originally formed as The Red Room Theory in 2003, lead vocalist/bassist Davey Richmond (Davey Death), guitarists Chris Gomerson (Chris Carnage) and Mike Kingswood (Mikey Massacre), and drummer Ben Thomson (Ben Brutal), changed their name after recording their first self-funded EP, Invitations. Their second release, Through the Dark They March, was given a 10/10 rating by influential magazine Metal Hammer, which led to a supports slot with Avenged Sevenfold and a deal with indie label Siege of Amida Records. In 2008, they appeared on the Main Stage at Download Festival, released their third self-titled EP, and recorded a cover version of Iron Maiden's "2 Minutes to Midnight" for a Kerrang tribute album. In 2011, they released their debut album, The Summoning, through Afflicted Music. ~ Jon O'BrienPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
