GLORIOR BELLI crept out from the temperamental suburbs of Paris in December 2002. What started as a notorious duo soon became a remarkable Beast, acting as a beacon for everyone looking to free themselves of the influence of the Demiurge.
A symbolic demo Evil Archaic Order was released in June 2004. If the term avant-garde defines a band that sets out some novel lines of demarcation, then Glorior Belli’s reconfiguring of black metal’s internal/infernal structure means they undoubtedly deserve the moniker :
From the raging, raw ferocity of their 2005 debut “Ô Laudate Dominvs” to the widely acclaimed 2007 release “Manifesting the Raging Beast” right on through to 2009’s “Meet Us at the Southern Sign”, the band has been steadily resetting its compass, creeping exponentially towards the grimy magnificence to be found on their fourth full length record “The Great Southern Darkness”.
In June 2013 Glorior Belli have inked a worldwide deal with Agonia Records and released their fifth full length record ‘Gators Rumble, Chaos Unfurls’ by the fall of the same year.
Over the course of five full-length records, the band has progressively developed to become a more sophisticated musical entity, while conversely exploring the devolution of black metal’s heritage. With a captivating mix of bluesy, heavy grooves, doom-laden lyricism, and some thickly distorting sludge, the band has reaffirmed the diabolical principles of black metal while avoiding its most mind-numbing cliches.
Glorior Belli entered studio once more in late 2015, in anticipation of their sixth full length record “Sundown” to be released by Agonia Records in April 29th 2016.
