New on the Metal Stream: Barbarian – Faith Extinguisher

Genre: Speed Metal, Thrash Metal, Black Metal

Released: January 23rd, 2014 on Doomentia Records

Barbarian is an Italian threesome formed back in 2009, and clearly play homage to Venom, Bathory, and Celtic Frost in their style. This album rocks in a style with pulverizing riffs, tight-dynamic drumming, primitive architecture, and a familiar atmosphere perfected by the aforementioned bands.

Vocalist, Borys Crossburn, has a fantastic rasp that has some old school grit that harkens to early 90s death metal.
