A band that took over a year to get off the ground with the right people for the job, German rockers Glanville are finally ready to break through with their debut EP – First Blood – and what a debut it is.
They get the ball rolling with the bloody amazing God Is Dead. From a wild rhythm, to a blow-away chorus, to the phenomenal vocals, this is easily one of the best opening tracks of 2018.
Once finished, they dive straight into Dancing On Fire, and although not as insane, it’s still a pretty catchy number, but Durga The Great kicks the pace right back up, while the guys throw out some rollicking riffs.
This remains a constant in Demons, and the writing is not too shabby either, and lastly Time To Go makes for a great climax, and the addition of flutes of all things surprisingly help make it all the more epic.
First Blood is a seriously impressive first effort that is minimal in flaws, being consistently action-packed all the way through and leaving listeners dying for more.
