So you thought WARHAMMER, APOCALYPTIC RAIDS or HELLKOMMANDER were the only true heirs to HELLHAMMER and CELTIC FROST throne didn?t you?! Surely, formed in 2009, Florence?s BARBARIAN also namechecked RUNNING WILD or early BATHORY as one of t...heir main influences but come on, as soon as the first notes of ?Serve In Heaven, Reign In Hell? hit you off and ?Borys Crossburn? lets go his first ?ugh!? of the day, you know what the score is and as Tom G. Warrior would have say himself, the usurper?s tears surely guide their sword. Just look up at each of those three Italians? role in the band: ?necroharmonic guitarmageddon and invocations of baltic storms and polish metal albums?, ?eruptions of evil from cracked earth? and ?fuck off bombardment?. Indeed, only 1984 is real!!
HELLS HEADBANGERS is proud to present the highly anticipated third album of Italy's BARBARIAN, "Cult of the Empty Grave". Since 2009, the power-trio have been killing it in the metal underground, culminating in 2014's classic "Faith Extinguisher" on the highly respected Doomentia label. Now, with the backing of longtime fans HELLS HEADBANGERS, the true BARBARIAN are poised to hail and kill, far and wide, wherever the mighty hooves of the Apocalypse take them, and "Cult of the Empty Grave" shall be the soundtrack to that domination.
