The band 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).
Their 3-track demo “Sedna’s Revenge” gained them a high reputation among the Classic Heavy Metal underground.
The band already played numerous shows with bands like Powerwolf, Vicious Rumors, Ordan Ogan and Helstar and left screaming crowds longing for their debut album.
GLORYFUL’s music is not about any clichés or bullshit. It’s just what it is: Heavy Metal!
As a full line-up consisting of advanced and professional musicians like Vito Papotto (guitar), Oliver Karasch (bass) and Hartmut Stoof (drums), they entered the studio in summer 2012 to record their debut album and chose legendary Swedish sound alchemist Dan Swanö as their producer.
The band about their addition to Massacre Records’ artist roster:
“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!”
