GLORIOR BELLI "Gators Rumble, Chaos Unfurls" [CD, Digipak]
2013 - Raw Black Metal from France
Consequently climbing the ladder of innovation and artistic development, the French band Glorior Belli 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 is about to reveal a new flip. "Gators Rumble, Chaos Unfurls" - band's fifth full-length release - is yet another milestone of an unusual relationship between southern stylistics and crushing heaviness, all tied up and sealed by a twisted yet still refreshing take on music, straight from the suburbs of Paris.
