German metallers GLORYFUL have inked a deal with Massacre Records. The band's debut album will be released next summer. The CD is being recorded with legendary Swedish sound alchemist Dan Swanö.
GLORYFUL was formed in summer 2010 by lead singer Johnny La Bomba and Shredmaster JB (a.k.a. Jens Basten, who is also NIGHT IN GALES' guitarist and songwriter). A three-track demo, "Sedna's Revenge", garnered great reviews in the classic heavy metal underground and the band played a number of shows with such acts as POWERWOLF, VICIOUS RUMORS, ORDAN OGAN and HELSTAR.
According to a press release, GLORYFUL's "music is not about any clichés or bullshit. It's just what it is: heavy metal!"
GLORYFUL's lineup is rounded out by Vito Papotto (guitar), Oliver Karasch (bass) and Hartmut Stoof (drums).
Commented the band: "We are very happy to be part of the Massacre family now! As Massacre Records is one of Germany's most important and long-living addresses for quality metal music, it's an honor for us to release our debut album with them in 2013!"
