THIRD HYMN OF RAW BLACK METAL FROM FRENCH FILTH-MONGERS GLORIOR BELLI
"Once in a blood red moon, a band comes along that defies the law...
Glorior Belli came out from the dark in December 2002 with Antares
& Infestvvs. The first demo, "Evil Archaic Order" was released in
June 2004, followed by the first album " Lavdate Dominvs" in May 2005.
Despite their exquisitely filthy and brutal nature, both records emit a
mesmerizing otherworldly resonance that cannot be denied. An omnious
rumble and surge. Always moving forward to various points of tension
& terror. Raging guitars, violent drums, blood & blasphemies...
There's obviously some bestial qualities in their art but the whole
thing though has a strangely melodic bent that helps it to stand out
from other black metal records, an almost indie-rock quality to the
melodies, somehow super catchy while at the same time being
suffocatingly black & grim. M :A Fog joined the band in early 2006
as a new drummer & Glorior Belli began the composition of their
second full-length album : "Manifesting The Raging Beast", released on
June 19th 2007 under the banner of Southern Lord Records. Raging with
heart-eating intensity, this new album conquered the black souls, spoke
of the darkest secrets and affirmed its personality toward the genre.
Filled with seasick riffs, guttural vocals and surprisingly melodic
lines, "Manifesting..." is as darkly beautiful as it is gloom inducing.
In summer 2008 Glorior Belli have inked a new deal with Candlelight
Records in Europe & North-America. Antares is back in the band
after M:A Fog's departure & Glorior Belli will record their third
album: "Meet Us At The Southern Sign" in early 2009. The band has
already performed some live rituals, including the Blood Soaked Torment
tour with Corpus Christii in October 2005 playing alongside bands like
Inquisition, Merrimack, Watain, Hell Militia, Paragon Impure, etc..."
