Barbatos Releasing New Album "Straight Metal War"

At long last, Japan's Barbatos returns with its first album in nearly a decade, "Straight Metal War," which is set for international release on August 7th via Hells Headbangers. The label comments:

"A prolific force on the split-release front, 'Straight Metal War' is Barbatos' fifth album to date in 17 years of existence, and the first for Hells Headbangers. Helmed by Abigail mainman Yasuyuki, Barbatos have become cult legends in the metal underground with their uniquely filthy 'n' sleazy brand of blackened heavy metal/punk.

"Possessed by sex, drinks, and metal, Yasuyuki here extols the virtues of high school girls and heavy metal forces, Witching Metal and Tokyo rock 'n' roll shows, Satanik Holocausts and of course the very real 'Straight Metal War.'

"It's a dozen dirty songs that are immediately memorable, remarkably varied, and whose dirtiness simply won't wash off. Stock up on ammo and enter the 'Straight Metal War' with Barbatos! Hear the first discharge of that ammo all over 'Goodbye High School Girls' below."
