Glam is seeing something of a revival these days, and I for one am very excited. Bands built around spandex pants, tight riffs, and a fiendish dedication to rock and roll are, in my opinion, glorious, groups that showcase a magic that is all their own. With Glamtron Desyre bring something new to the table. A sound that adds not a few power metal elements to a strong glam base, Glamtron is a fun and party hearty record that showcases one of Finlands fastest rising metal bands. Music for the masses, heavy metal for the master plan, Glamtron is here to drown you in heavy metal magic.

One thing I really fig about Glamtron is the high flying and triumphant vocals that characterize a lot of the record. They give a strong power metal vibe to the songs and help to add in a 'fantastic' element to the music. Meanwhile, the lyrics are mostly pure glam metal, as evidenced by tracks like 'Party Song' and 'Dangerous Desyre'. The riffs fall somewhere in between, neither to glam or to power metal. Instead they find a happy medium that helps to give Glamtron its own feel. One last thing I would like to point out is the spectacular keyboard playing. They do not dominate the music but they give heft to the sound and help to keep things engaging and powerful.

In conclusion, Glamtron is a surprisingly fresh and very fun glam metal record that will capture your heart and turn it up to eleven. Filled with partying fun and heavy metal magic Glamtron isn't really meant to be taken seriously. Yet, that doesn't take away from the sheer beauty of this record. An album that understands and captures the spirit of glam yet injects so much more is hard to come by, but Desyre's power metal, glam mix is pulled off with aplomb. Suffice to say, the future seems bright for these children of Finland and I can't wait to see what they pull off next!
