Hamish Glencross (born 13 February 1978 in Dundee, Scotland) is one of My Dying Bride's guitarists. He also co-founded the short-lived Blackdoom Records with the band's other guitarist, Andrew Craighan, which released The Prophecy's debut album Ashes.[1]

He replaced Calvin Robertshaw in 1999 prior to the band touring for the album The Light at the End of the World and has been an official member of My Dying Bride ever since. Prior to joining My Dying Bride, he played guitar for Bradford alternative rock band Driftwood, UK progressive metal band Seer's Tear, and Leeds-based punk/metal band Apocalypso. He also appeared on the UK doom metal band Solstice's album New Dark Age. As of 2011, he also plays lead guitar in the UK death metal band Vallenfyre, appearing on the album A Fragile King released on Century Media Records.[2]

Before concentrating on music, Hamish also did some acting, most notably in the UK children's drama Children's Ward.

Glencross currently endorses Jackson guitars, and has been playing them exclusively since 2006. He favours the Jackson Randy Rhoads model, playing a number of variations of that model both live and in the studio.
