Killian Martin

Mainly rhythm guitarist of the band, but also second voice and keyboard player if needed. He often participates in the composition of the songs. Killian and David took lessons from the same guitar teacher, and were also together in college. So it was only natural that they would end up playing together, starting with the band The Rise between 2013 and 2014, and then accompanying Leaf for some shows from 2015 to 2016. At the same time, he and Matthias started the band Spinning Dogs. He proposes to David to become the singer, not being able to ensure himself this role. But the relations deteriorating with the bassist and the drummer, Killian decides to put an end to this project. With Matthias, they decide to join David and Andrei to form Glamour at the Gate.

As far as influences are concerned, he picks in several styles, starting with the hard rock of Guns N'Roses, AC/DC and Aerosmith, but also the fusion rock of Red Hot Chili Peppers, the Rap Metal of Rage Against the Machine or the southern rock of Lynyrd Skynyrd. He also chose his Fender Jaguar to find the sound of the surf music of the 50's and 60's, but also that of Kurt Cobain, who had a huge impact on him.
