The story begun when Mike and Sylvain met Marcel, who was living the band Nightmare. After some days, both joined the band and Barakmas is born at this very moment. At the beginning, the guys decided to play cover songs. After many shows, the time has come for them to know the art of composition. Sylvain decided to leave the band after some frictions and Fred Guibou took his place in the band. After long months of practice, compositions and many shows, Barakmas decided, at last to record his first demo called 'Forgiveness Is For The Weak' ; speed/trash metal brutal and pure.

In 2003, Fred left the band for his own reasons and Sylvain came back in the band, stronger than ever with Mike, Marcel and P-O. Afterwards, the band gave us a great prestation at the Emergenza contest at Montréal.

They continue to create their place on the Québec's scene by giving many show on varied scenes all around the Québec province. An album is anticipated for 2004; we must wait for a good speed/trash metal this time again cause, faithful to their convinctions and with all experiences acquired by the four young men, Barakmas is there in the heart of the big real heavy metal.

Below is a summary of Barakmas coverage and information on Metal Underground.com.
