Random Riffage: Glorior Belli – The Great Southern Darkness

Glorior Belli are a Parisian southern doom metal band. That may sound weird, until you realize a large majority of the south is french speaking or has french influence in their culture. Either way, these guys play some absolutely soul crushing tunes that Satan himself would enjoy.

While their music is a bit of a departure from this blog, the song I’m drawing attention too is well deserving off it. The title track from Glorior Belli’s newest album, “The Great Southern Darkness”, is a grimy, doom filled spine chiller of a song. A classic riff backs a mellow opening section in which we learn the joys of glorifying Satan, then the hammer drops and all hell breaks loose.

It’s this combination of a clean build and interlude combined with an ear melting drop that makes shivers go down my spine every time it gets played. Give it a listen and let me know what you think.
