In a scene that has become largely repetitive, nostalgia driven, and prone to navel gazing, few bands stand out as breaking new ground.
With their sophomore full-length 'Blood From The Lion's Mouth', BARISHI demonstrate that it is still possible to challenge the established formulas of the metal genre by recombining its musical DNA.
There is an undeniable progressive undertone in their modern approach to hard guitar based music, but at the same time, the Americans delve into the darker side of extreme sound that defies the happy fret-fingering all too often employed by their peers.
BARISHI provide the listener with earth-shattering grooves and savage vocals born in the verdant mountains of Vermont.
Prepare to be pounded on and thunderstruck with ecstatic metal.
