Formed in 2003, For The Glory is a five piece hardcore band hailing from the suburbs of Lisbon. With their harsh and heavy sound, FOR THE GLORY is a band that has a passionate way of delivering a fast and aggressive hardcore.
In 10 years of existence FOR THE GLORY released a DIY demo and later the MCD "Drown In Blood" on Raging Planet Rec/I Owe You Nothing Rec, followed by two 7’’, "Somethings Won’t Last Forever" on Carthago Rec. and "Darker Days" on Hardknox Rec. and a first full length "Survival Of The Fittest" released Raging Planet Rec. in 2009, re-issued with bonus tracks and multimedia through the german Dead Serious Recordings.
During the summer of 2010 and to celebrate the friendship with three other bands, FOR THE GLORY release a split 7" with Black Friday '29, City To City and Last Mile, brought by the effort of three underground labels (I Owe You Nothing / Hell Xis / Golden Days).
2011 was set to be the most productive year of FOR THE GLORY, releasing and touring SOME KIDS HAVE NO FACE (Hell Xis / Raging Planet Records/Destroy Your World Inc.), they proved the European scene what the band is all about, passionate hardcore with loads of groove, always aware with everyday issues, raising a sense of criticism towards a society based upon greed and no values such as integrity, compassion and respect.
2012 was another great year for the band, playing tons of metal and hardcore punk festivals with some of the biggest names around, the band released of a split 7” with their friends World Eater on Save My Soul records.
Always true to themselves, with an “what you see is what you get” attitude, it was time to release a new full length. On September 16, 2013, a new record will drop through their brand new label Rastilho Metal Records entitled “Lisbon Blues”. This possibly the heaviest and hardest record the band has ever recorded, you can see it as sign of the times. This is FOR THE GLORY’s statement to a world that wants to see the people defeated.
FOR THE GLORY is a band that conveys what they love to play, with a passionate way to perform hardcore, with rawness and an aggressive sound, based upon true lyrics. FOR THE GLORY definitely has set their seeds to archive once more what European Hardcore is all about!
Hardcore Lives 2013.

If the future is to be written, it is from this place that we look back; The kids that we are and the stories that brought us here, all together. For the glory of doing something for ourselves, for the kids that we are, for the kids that, everyone, we will always be.
