GLORIOR BELLI
MAINIFESTING THE RAGING BEAST
SOUTHERN LORD

French trio Gloriror Belli play black metal with an artsy flare, almost with an undercurrent of sophistication bubbling up from underneath the incessantly dissonant rasps of evil that prevail on MANIFESTING THE RAGING BEAST's surface. With obvious correlations drawn to acts like Mayhem, Burzum, Celtic Frost, and the ilk, tracks featuring dominant suffocating fretwork like "Severed from the Self" and the forebodingly majestic stomp of "Serpentine Admonition" are sure to send chills up your spine thanks to the haunting vibes and venomous vocals spewed with genuine disdain. Bleak and raw, this eight-track disc stays true to the roots of its grim genre, achieving a well-balanced display of savagery and melody like few others have mustered in the past.
