Barbarian Prophecies are a band from Spain that plays a blackened form of death metal and this is a review of their 2018 album "Origin" which will be released on March 26th as a joint effort between Base Record Production and Hecatombe Records.
Acoustic guitar playing starts off the album before going into a heavier direction while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them along with the vocals being mostly death metal growls as well as some screams that also add in a touch of black metal and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard.
A small amount of dark sounding melodies can also be heard in some of the guitar riffing while the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with the solos and leads bringing in more of an old school death metal style and some of the tracks are long and epic in length.
Acoustic guitars also making a return in certain sections of the recording as the album progresses while atmospheric synths can also be heard briefly before returning back to a brutal direction along with some songs also bringing in elements of thrash and they also bring in an acoustic instrumental.
Barbarian Prophecies plays a style of blackened death metal that is very heavy and brutal while also bringing in elements of thrash at times, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover metaphysical, death, war and chaos themes.
In my opinion Barbarian Prophecies are a very great sounding blackened death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Multiple" "Reincarnation" "Fourth Dimension" and "Remember The Fallen XVII". 8 out of 10.
