French black metallers Glorior Belli have announced the re-release of their debut full-length, Ô Laudate Dominvs. Originally released in 2005 via Eerie Art Records, the analog-only reissue will be released on extremely limited LP pressings on June 1 through Ascension Monuments Media. The band’s own Billy Bayou had the following comments:
“Some things in life you don’t forget, whether they are traumatic events or the happiest times. Glorior Belli has been my own creature for a little over 15 years, and a lot can happen in such a while. In fact, it feels like an eternity today when I look back. What could possibly celebrate this 15th year anniversary better than a special release that consists of Glorior Belli’s most essential records, starting now with the raging, raw ferocity of 2005’s debut Ô Laudate Dominvs!”
“Glorior Belli has been steadily resetting its compass since then, creeping exponentially towards the grimy magnificence to be found on their upcoming new record, The Apostates, which will be released April 6 via French label Season of Mist.
“This long awaited reissue of the debut deserves only the best quality, thus we have chosen to work with a very promising new Southern California-based label Ascension Monuments Media for a vinyl & cassette ‘analog assault.’
“On a side note, Glorior Belli’s twin project, OBSCURUS ADVOCAM, which took a life of its own back in 2007 with the band’s only album released on CD via now-defunct Battle Kommand Records, will be reissued on vinyl & cassette as well after being out of print for 7+ years!”
