Metal Blade Records signs Glorior Belli

Official press release:

Glorior Belli swamped 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, followed by their first full-length album Ô Lavdate Dominvs in May 2005. Their sophomore album Manifesting the Raging Beast was released in June 2007 via Southern Lord Records and their latest offering Meet Us At The Southern Sign reached the surface in June 2009 via Candlelight Records.

Lyrics and themes explored over the years reveal a sincere inclination for rebel-ism and developed sense of poetry, an intriguing and almost hypnotic journey through dark deserts and evil fields with Lucifer as personal guide.

At this point the French band has garnered a stellar reputation in the extreme music community for mixing Desert-Rock textures with the brutal, ominous, doom-laden vibe typical of Black Metal. But don’t bother trying to restrain that which cannot be confined, for this is merely the greatest curse of the cosmic scheme.

Glorior Belli have now inked a worldwide deal with Metal Blade Records in anticipation of their upcoming album The Great Southern Darkness, due to be released in the fall of this year.

Comments the band: "We are extremely pleased to have the opportunity to work with the folks of Metal Blade Records, who put out some of the best Metal in the past decades, and it's only fair given the efforts and determination of Glorior Belli into making genuine music that stands the test of time."

manifesting is decent along with some songs on meet us, but this band doesn't really do a ton for me. not bad, not great.

After hearing GHOST's debut album this year, I'd be willing to give more new Metal Blade bands a chance. That GHOST record is the best shit i've heard in 2011 so far.

Its always metal blade or nuclear blast that signs bands that maybe 100 people have heard of. I think as long as you can't pronounce the bands name you automatically get signed.
