Barbarian Prophecies Discusses of Playing Everywhere and New Music!

Extreme metal act BARBARIAN PROPHECIES have been active since 2000! Over that span of time though, they have gone on to release 5 alums, 2 EP's and 2 demo's, with an all new album coming soon. They want to promote said album and just play everywhere they possibly can. With that said, the band discusses all of this and more below.

1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

Barbarian Prophecies is an extreme metal band founded in Spain and play in the Underground scene since 2000. Current line up:

Alicia (Vocals & Bass)

Arnt (Guitars & Synths)

Diego (Drums)

Óscar (Guitars & Backing Vocals)

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

The name of the band comes from the fusion of two local bands one called Barbarianth and the other Venomous Prophecies.  Else decided to unite the two names so as not to lose the identity of the bands involved and because at that time there was no other band with the same name, and we believe that none with the same name still exists.

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

Barbarian Prophecies is a Spanish band, specifically from the city of Lugo (Galicia).  In Spain there is a great Underground scene, but there are hardly any bands that have relevance because from the administration at the political level there is no real support for this type of musical genre.  That is why there are no Spanish bands with international relevance in metal or rock at the level of other countries.  We know of many great bands such as Perpetual, Bloodhunter, Hiranya, Irredemption, Myxomatosis, Untides, Elefantes Mutilados, Pneura, Xerion, Mano de Piedra , Amenaza de Muerte, Khmer, Materia Muerta, Ruthless, Numen, Nakkiga, Death Bringer, Dioivo, Opposer, Schwarzenegger, Vepkóc, Lapsus Mentis, As Life Burns, etc...

4. How would you describe your style?

Death metal with many different influences (Melodeath, Thrash Metal, Black Metal, Prog-Death, Progressive) and other styles out of metal music.

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

So far the band has released 5 full albums, 2 Eps and 2 Demos.  Our music is a mix of many styles but with a base of classic Scandinavian type Death Metal.  People who like bands that have their own sound and open to all kinds of influences will like our work.

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

This year we have recorded our latest album titled Horizon at Kollapse Studio with Iván Ferro.  The album will be released in physical format in Autumn but this August it will be on all digital platforms.

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

We plan to do a good presentation of the new album and play everywhere we can.  We plan to visit other countries such as Germany, Hungary, Portugal or France.  All this will depend on the progress of the pandemic and the return of the normal situation, equal to or similar to before this great problem generated by Covid19.

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

Continue in the same dynamic as always, play live and travel presenting our music in all the places where we can.  On the other hand, we are working on new audiovisual material for the band to promote the new album.

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

You can find our music on any digital platform or you can order our music by writing to us on our social networks, as well as requesting the material from the labels that collaborate with us. (Base Record Production, hecatombe records, Violence In the Veins and Iron Matron Records)

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

Without a doubt, our greatest wish is that the person who discovers our music thinks that Barbarian Prophecies is a band with its own personality and that it has its own sound and identity.
