Biography

GLORIOR BELLI crept out from the temperamental suburbs of Paris in December 2002 and a symbolic demo « Evil Archaic Order » was released in June 2004.

From the raging, raw ferocity of their 2005 debut « Ô Laudate Dominvs » to the widely acclaimed 2007 release « Manifesting the Raging Beast » (Southern Lord Records) right on through to 2009’s « Meet Us at the Southern Sign » (Candlelight Records), 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 » (Metal Blade Records).

In June 2013 Glorior Belli have inked a deal with Agonia Records and released their fifth full length record « Gators Rumble, Chaos Unfurls » by the fall of the same year. Described as a captivating mix of bluesy, heavy grooves and some thickly distorting sludge.
The band’s sixth full length record « Sundown » was released by Agonia Records in April 29th 2016, redefining darkness in Glorior Belli’s own terms.

Over the course of their discography, Glorior Belli has reaffirmed the diabolical principles of black metal while avoiding its most mind-numbing clichés. Lyrics and themes explored over the years reveal a sincere inclination for rebel-ism and developed sense of poetry. The experience would be described as an intriguing and almost hypnotic journey through dark deserts and evil fields.

Glorior Belli entered studio once more by the fall of 2017, in anticipation of their seventh full length record “The Apostates” to be released by Season Of Mist in 2018.
