This band heralds the mother of all Epic Rock: personified by seven sweaty, medieval–clad musicians. Emblazoning the stage with their dress; each wearing a unique style depicting dark ages stereotypes including a celt, viking, vandal, grim reaper etc; as they behold powers of flame, life and death: before your very eyes.
Myles Tauchert and Frankie Gionfriddo front the stage as a pair of marauding behemoths of legendary proportions. Their sacraficial publicity campaign notes that the Barbariön “stage show combines historically inaccurate, sexually ambiguous, highly flammable costumes with hastily assembled pyrotechnics in confined spaces, along with ‘carefully’ choreographed guitar moves and plenty of exposed flesh. There is rarely a dull moment. Furthermore, we hold the mantle of the heaviest band in Melbourne with a combined weight of nearly 1500lbs!” –all volume of which will muscle in on any crowd, as Richard Kelly unleashes his relentless death–drum mantra.
These axe–wielding metal maniacs this year went pillaging on an East Coast Big Day Out tour and only this weekend do they release their big–budget cinematic video film clip triumph for their smashing single My Rock.
