Regarding this new track, the band comments: "'Grave of the Creator' came together in the middle of the album's writing process.

Season of Mist announced the signing of Vermont progressive/bung act Barishi. The label commented: "the unconventional metal extremists offer a fascinating addition to this label's roster."

The band commented: "We are absolutely thrilled to be working with Season of Mist. They have put out some of our favorite records and have an undeniably awesome aesthetic. To be included on a roster of so many music legends is truly humbling. We are currently nearing completion of writing our second full-length record and are very excited to start work in the studio. It's going to be awesome to eventually deliver it to everybody through such a great record label. Thanks to all the people at Season of Mist along with our fans and friends for getting us here."
Barishi was formed by guitarist Graham Brooks, bassist Jon Kelley, and drummer Dylan Blake in Southern Vermont in the spring of 2010, originally performing as an instrumental trio throughout the east coast of the United States. The band's unique style of gritty progressive metal was completed with the addition of vocalist Sascha Simms in 2012. The line-up recorded and released a self-titled and critically acclaimed debut album in 2013, which was followed by a US-tour in support of guitarist Felix Martin. More...

Vermont's Barishi just released a self-titled progressive metal tour de force debut album. The saxophone heard on "Sky Burial" and "Holy Mountain" is but one of the pleasant surprises in an album full of them. Barishi was recorded, mixed, and co-produced by the band and Brian Westbrook at PDP Recording, with mastering done by Nick Dragoni at M-Works Mastering Studio. The eight-song album "Barishi" can be experienced over at bandcamp.
Barishi is making its mark in the New England metal scene and beyond. Formed in 2010 as an instrumental three piece know as Atlatl they began writing songs influenced by fusion and progressive music. Their style quickly started getting heavier and darker while retaining some progressive influence, thus forging their own style of heavy psychedelic metal. In 2012 they found a wayward vocalist wandering the streets of Keene, New Hampshire. Bringing him into the fold they found that his sound melded excellently with theirs.
