GLORIOR BELLI added to Maryland Deathfest 2013
France's GLORIOR BELLI has been added to the Maryland Deathfest 2013 line up. The band joins a wide range of international acts for what is being called 'America's biggest metal party of the year'. The fest is scheduled for May 23-26, 2013, with tickets on sale now at Multi-day passes for the former Sonar compound are sold out, and single day tickets have been made available as of today.

GLORIOR BELLI's latest album The Great Southern Darkness was released in September of 2011. The album, which Decibel Magazine lauded as "mid-tempo, riff-tastic, evil-as-fuck metal", can be purchased at At, fans can also watch videos for "Negative Incarnate", "They Call Me Black Devil", and listen to "Secret Ride to Rebellion". For the uninitiated, GLORIOR BELLI's sound is unique, best described by Metal Hammer; "Despite its inherit griminess, the songs here are rousing and accessible, with hints of Pantera and even Alice in Chains making 'The Great Southern Darkness' an album of surprisingly wide appeal".

Metal Blade Records signs worldwide deal with French Black Metal Avantgarde GLORIOR BELLI!
Metal Blade Records is proud to announce the signing of GLORIOR BELLI from France!

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 ‘ 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 donít 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."
