Matthew Toye This is Barbarian's finest hour and considering their two previous albums, that's saying something. The Manowar meets Celtic Frost formula remains intact, but the trio has really come into their own here. Favorite track: Bone Knife.

Erik Gordier This album sounds like the glorious bastard child of Manowar and Darkthrone. Favorite track: Bone Knife.

Rich Nerdgore Listening to Barbarian is like fighting right at the front of an Orc horde, crushing Dwarfs, Elves and Skaven as if it were nothing and revelling in the gore that splatters your heavily spiked armour. Favorite track: Absolute Metal.

Ted Nü-Djent Barbarian was the only band who could out-disgust me. When we were kids we had gross-out contests. I coughed a pile of phlegm on a table, they said "Nice try." and pulled out a straw... Favorite track: Absolute Metal.

about

HELLS HEADBANGERS is proud to present the highly anticipated third album of Italy's BARBARIAN, Cult of the Empty Grave. Since 2009, the power-trio have been killing it in the metal underground, culminating in 2014's classic Faith Extinguisher on the highly respected Doomentia label. Now, with the backing of longtime fans HELLS HEADBANGERS, the true BARBARIAN are poised to hail and kill, far and wide, wherever the mighty hooves of the Apocalypse take them, and Cult of the Empty Grave shall be the soundtrack to that domination. The BARBARIAN sound is one that's both ancient and fresh, and has been firmly in place since the beginning. Imagine a sweat-drenched symbiosis of early Running Wild and '80s Manowar with the panache of classic Venom: Cult of the Empty Grave eclipses such a hypothesis, but is rendered with the now-trademark BARBARIAN touch, one that's boisterous and bloodlusting and unapologetically OTT. In the wise words of one Cult of the Empty Grave track, it's verily "Absolute Metal." Total fun done with total seriousness and with total intolerance for posers (leave the hall!), BARBARIAN hail the banner of heavy metal and beckon you to enter the Cult of the Empty Grave!
