Paris, France-based black metallers GLORIOR BELLI have issued the following update:
"Mortaeus [drums] will cover the U.S. tour with GLORIOR BELLI [along with ABSU, AVERSE SEFIRA and SOTHIS] in June, but we're still looking for a new permanent drummer anyway... Especially for European dates and the next album(s). We're based in Paris, France but as long as you're not against traveling, it doesn't matter where you come from really... Just know that we usually get the costs covered.
"As a representative of the band, you know what we're standing for and must therefore be walking the same path yourself.
"Get in touch if you think you have what it takes. We're looking for someone who isn't already playing in too many other bands, meaning you're available to go on tour and take days off.
"You practice drums regularly, using metronome. Our tempos are not so high and blast beats are being pretty rare nowadays, so we'd very much prefer someone with a hardcore/rock groove, easy to go with mid-tempos and the double pedal much more than just a regular 'fast and furious polish beats' addict, though you should be able to play some of our old tracks anyway. You're not afraid to bring something new to the genre.
"Some references: MASTODON, DISSECTION, MARDUK, CULT OF LUNA, NEUROSIS, DOWN, ALICE IN CHAINS... And so many more.
"Anyone matching the whole profile, or at least most of it is, welcome to send an application form to [email protected] Name, age, country, references, motivations, anything that you consider worth telling."
