Yet again a band from Oslo, Norway takes the wheel and steers us into rock n’ roll oblivion. Gluecifer the self proclaimed “Kings of Rock” are back at it again with the album “Automatic Thrill”. A slight departure from their previous records, this one is a little more polished, a little more refined but a natural progression from a band that has come so far, forging through a tireless wasteland of pop rock and bands you aren’t going to remember ten years from now. Stu Manx (bass), Captain Poon (guitar), Danny Young (drums), Raldo Useless (guitar), and Biff Malibu (vocals), once again school us on how to respect the rock.

The album starts off with the title track “Automatic Thrill” and continues to escalate from there. Though a little more organized this time they get the point, rock is here to stay and they are determined to leave a mark in the scene. “Car Full of Stash” brings you back to more classic Gluecifer, guitar hooks and pure energy. “Put Me On A Plate” also has the high voltage energy Gluecifer are known for. This album is sure to please any fan, a little different from previous records, it doesn’t quite have that raw power of previous albums but is still better than anything you are going to hear on the radio today. Though defunct now, the legacy of Gluecifer lives on – if you like this, you will definitely like their previous albums in which I order you to go buy right away! Like the Hellacopters or the Backyard Babies? Give Gluecifer a try, it’s time for your automatic thrill.
