Barbarian Signs With Hells Headbangers

Hells Headbangers is proud to announce the signing of Italy's Barbarian. The first fruit of this unholy union shall be the band's third album, "Cult of the Empty Grave," which will be released during the first quarter of 2016.

Since 2009, the power-trio has been killing it in the metal underground, culminating in 2014's "Faith Extinguisher" via the Doomentia label. Now, with the backing of longtime fans Hells Headbangers, the true Barbarian is poised to hail and kill, far and wide "Cult of the Empty Grave" shall be the soundtrack to that domination. The album's track listing is as follows:

1. Bridgeburner
2. Whores of Redemption
3. Cult of the Empty Grave
4. Absolute Metal
5. Supreme Gift
6. Bone Knife
7. Remorseless Fury

A statement from the band reads as follows: "Barbarian was formed in 2009, and the lineup has never changed - and that's kinda awesome already - with the core being Borys Crossburn, L.B. Steamroller, and D.D. Prowler. After six years, 'Cult of the Empty Grave' is the album that eventually nails it for us. It sounds very natural and dynamic - no overproduction of any sort, and no loudness-wars madness. The songs have a very distinctive trait, at the heart of heavy metal - raw, natural, and arrogant, because that's the only way we know and we are able to. It's regressive metal because we don't care about what is fancy or whatever. Heavey metal is evil, heavy metal is ugly, heavy metal is threatening, and that's the Barbarian way." More...
