Glorior Belli signs with Agonia RecordsFrance's avantgarde black metal outfit Glorior Belli has inked a worldwide record deal with Agonia Records. The band's fifth full-length album, will be released in the fall.
Consequently climbing the ladder of innovation and artistic development, the French quartet managed to work out a very own sound and view in the often stiff frames found within the black metal genre. Descriptions such as "avant-garde black metal bluesmen" (Pitchfork) or "bluesy doom-sludge" (Metal Sucks) are only the two sides of the same coin that will reveal a new flip this autumn.
"We are absolutely thrilled to have the chance to work with Agonia Records and it's only fair given the efforts and determination of both Glorior Belli and Agonia Records into making genuine music that stands the test of time," commented the band.
Glorior Belli was founded in Paris, in 2002 and has thus far released four full-length albums, the last of which, "The Great Southern Darkness", came out in 2011 on Metal Blade Records.
The band will make its North American tour debut in May. The trek will include an appearance at this year's Maryland Deathfest.
