Oliver stated:

“Due to personal reasons, I can’t fulfill the role as bassist of Gloryful anymore. It was a great time and I will always cherish the memories of great shows and the best company anyone could imagine. This has been the best band I ever played in and I’m glad that a good replacement could be found, otherwise I wouldn’t have left.”

Daniel Perl about his new role as GLORYFUL’s bassist:

“Working his artilleristic instrument, he had flattened the ground – besides his band members – for the infantristic sound to take over. As this good man has taken a back seat, it was my call to enter the band. With great pleasure and honor I’m taking the task that has been Oliver’s since the start of Gloryful. Locked and loaded and ready to rumble in the name of Heavy Metal, let the war begin!”

GLORYFUL’s new album “Ocean Blade” will be released on April 25, 2014 via Massacre Records!

From Massacre Records:

We’re happy to announce the signing of Germany’s Heavy Metal hopefuls GLORYFUL!

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!”
