Once upon a time (well, 2007) there were a lot of people tipping Yorkshire’s Glamour Of The Kill for big things. In a world where the likes of Trivium, Bullet For My Valentine and Avenged Sevenfold were all being championed as the shining beacons that would lead metal into a brighter tomorrow, GOTK could have become the missing part in a whole new Big Four. Alas, that didn’t happen and while they’ve kept plugging away their following has remained modest to say the least. Yet in a world where the aforementioned BFMV are global straddling superstars and A7X have recently scored a UK number one album surely winning over new fans should now be a piece of cake for GOTK, right?

From the powerful opening moments of ‘Howdy Neighbour!’, it’s clear that Madina Lake are back. After a horrendous couple of years, it appears that the Chicago quartet is back and ready to complete the Adalia trilogy with the intriguingly titled World War III.

Like a number of genuinely great thrash bands – Testament being a prime example – Annihilator suffered with poor timing.

Unlike Testament, Annihilator haven’t yet capitalised of the recent rekindling of interest in the genre by releasing a record which recalls their finest days.

The so-called thrash revival may have seen Metallica bringing metal back to the masses with stadium-filling ease last year but they’re not the only one doing it. German stalwarts Kreator may not be headlining arenas anywhere but Hordes Of Chaos delivers a more classic and raw-sounding package.

by Joel McIver

A new year, a new Motörhead album: it’s almost as if Lemmy is trying to make the most of the five or so years left to him on the live circuit before an inevitable retirement made up of the occasional charity gig and magazine awards ceremonies.

Refreshingly, Motörizer is no better or worse than Inferno, Hammered, We Are Motörhead or any other recent Motörhead album released over the last decade.
