Gloria Morti Posts Drum Footage

Finnish metal act Gloria Morti boasts a secret weapon in drummer Kauko Kuusisalo, who recently recorded a performance video for a track off the "Lateral Constraint" album in one single take. The pro-shot video can be viewed below.

Kauko Kuusisalo elaborates: "People have been asking frequently about my drumming and there's actually no good quality video of me playing Gloria Morti songs, except for some short clips from the latest album recordings. So, we decided it would be good to make a few videos of me playing full songs with one take at our guitarist's SoundSpiral Audio studio. We are also making a full band play-through video of the song 'Slaves.' So stay tuned for more."

Gloria Morti Announces New Album Release

Finnish black metal act Gloria Morti has issued the following statement about release a third album:

"The third Gloria Morti album 'Anthems of Annihilation' is finally finished. Recorded and mixed in the band's guitarist Juho Räihä's personal studio and mastered at Chartmakers by Svante Forsbäck (Rammstein, Soulfly...) the album easily exceeds the bands earlier work. Anthems of Annihilation brings the band to new heights by its agressive yet diverse soundscape. Gloria Morti is more crushing and brutal than ever. Anthems of Annihilation is a concept album about mankind making an irreversible mistake in trying to overcome all of its biggest problems. The storyline borders from a war between men and machines to the slavery and exploitation of a whole generation. The lyrical theme takes a stance on current problems and is a reminder of the stupidity of man.

"Anthems of Annihilation will be released during this summer/early fall through German Cyclone Empire. We were very pleased with Cyclone Empires contribution with Eryx and it was clear to us that we wanted to keep on working with the label. We put such a huge effort to this album that we weren't ready to hand it out to anyone who we didn't trust 100% The recordings began in December 2009 and the last mixing tweaks were made in April 2010. After the huge effort put into the production of the album it was clear to the band that only the best mastering engineer around could touch the sound. Svante is a rock solid professional and he has a sound that all of us have loved since the first time we heard hes work. The mans reference list speaks for itself."

The album's track listing is as follows: More...

Gloria Morti Checks In From The Studio

Finnish black metallers Gloria Morti have issued the following update from the studio:

"The recordings kicked off with a full day of comparing and tuning drums. This time we did not leave a single stone unturned. We had a few different full sets and half a dozen snare drums to choose from. You can imagine the headache after ten hours of listening to all of the different drum takes with all of the different mic combinations. But we managed to pull it thru. Now we have a drum set that sounds crystal clear and exceptionally powerful. Big thanks to Veka Salminen for the tuning. Tomorrow we are going to record the first beats of the album. So stay tuned..."

We will have a studio diary online and we will keep you up to date. The working title of the album is Anthems of Annihilation and it will contain ten tracks of the most diverse and crushing Gloria Morti material to date.

"Anthems of Annihilation is a concept album about mankind making an irreversible mistake in trying to overcome all of its biggest problems. The storyline borders from a war between men and machines to the slavery and exploitation of a whole generation. The lyrical theme takes a stance on current problems and is a reminder of the stupidity of man.

"Some working titles of the tracks:

The Solution Called War
Awakening of a Discordant Machine
Infiltration
Swallowed by Defeat
Obey

"Jenni Kemppainen is no longer a part of Gloria Morti. Keyboard arrangements on Anthems of Annihilation will be written and performed by our long time friend Lars Eikind (Producer on Lifestream Corrosion, Additional keyboard arrangements on Eryx.) Expect fast blast beats, flesh ripping melodies and huge sound scapes. Gloria Morti is stronger than ever!"

'Eryx' greets the listener with twisted technical riffs, brutal blast-beats and unsettling soundscapes, bleak enough to help anyone on the verge of suicide to make up their mind."

Gloria Morti Update

Finnish black metallers GLORIA MORTI have posted the following update on their website:

"The writing process for Gloria Morti's second album is nearing completion. Even as we speak the members of the band, along with the producer Eikind, are at Räihä's homestudio, working on pre-production and promotional material. Judging by the 5 allready finished songs, the material is by far the strongest and most extreme the band has ever created, taking the songwriting to a whole new level of maturity and brutality, yet remaining true to the sound and style that the band has established during it's existence. Some of the songtitles for the new songs are "Synthetic Eden", "Evermorose", "Phoenix Caged in Flesh" and "Phlegethon". If things progress according to our plans, the new Gloria Morti album will be out in the late 2005. Prepare yourselves...
