Guest review by
In case you've been living under a rock for the past decade, or just aren't much of a fan of the genre, the mid-to-latter half of the 2000s has seen a wave of French black metal bands (Blut Aus Nord, Deathspell Omega, Diapsiquir, to name a few) that seem to be hell-bent on throwing every chapter of black metal's "trve kvlt" rulebook out the window in favor of more drastically innovative experimentation. In many such cases, these bands have begun with a more orthodox black metal sound that gradually shifted to more out-of-the-box leanings the further they progressed with their discography, and Glorior Belli are no exception. The band displayed all the harsh, raw qualities typical of black metal on their debut, 2005's Ô Laudate Dominvs, and the follow-up, 2007's Manifesting The Raging Beast. However, it was their third album, 2009's Meet Us At The Southern Sign that saw the band delving into territory that was far more... bluesy? Yes, you read it right. Bluesy. Meet Us At The Southern Sign saw the band's first infusion of their beloved black metal genre with more bluesy/southern rock influences. And although this combination may sound completely bizarre in theory... well, in all honesty, Glorior Belli do a damn fine job at it.
