TRACK PREMIERE: "Total Nihilism" by blackened doom purveyors Barbarian Swords

Rotten, blasphemous, heralds of the most vicious nihilism and exacerbated misanthropy. Barbarian Swords are back and more savage than ever with “Worms”, their second album after their acclaimed debut work “Hunting Rats”. Their highly distinct blend of ill-fated black metal with the most despicable and perturbing doom goes a step further in this new album, becoming even more abrasive, violent and deranged. To their own despair, the Catalans have improved in every aspect, boosting a chubby and absolutely killer sound.

Barbarian Swords break into the international scene with the release of “Worms” by Cimmerian Shade Recordings (United States, 2xLP gatefold red and black, digipak CD and cassette), Satanath Records (Russia, jewel case CD) and The Ritual Productions (The Netherlands, jewel case CD), “Worms” will immerse you in a mantle of obscurity and disheartenment from its very beginning, with ‘I’m Your Demise’ as a clear statement of intents, ‘Outcast Warlords’ and ‘Pure Demonology’ lay down the particular vision the band has of black metal, while ‘Christian Worms’ and ‘Total Nihilism’ definitely push you to suicide. As usual, ‘The Last Virgin On The Earth, Sodomized’ and the assfucking dirty punk of ‘Carnivorous Pussy’ put a note of rhythm on the album, leading to an ending with the diabolical ‘Requiem’ and ‘Ultrasado Bloodbath’, for which not every metalhead is ready…

If that wasn’t enough the album boasts spectacular artwork by the master César Valladares (Krisiun, Asphyx, Grave Miasma, Under The Church, Balmog, Graveyard…) putting the finishing touch to an album that is simply pure evil and unstoppable hate. Today you can check their debut single from the album in the form of “Total Nihilism”.  

“Worms” will be released on November the 11th, 2016 and is available to pre order the album here
