BARRABUS

AFTER ORIGINALLY FORMING ABOUT TEN YEARS AGO, AS ONE OF THE MANY PROJECTS TO SPEW FORTH FROM THE DEMENTED MUSICAL VISION OF FORMER MEDULLA NOCTE FRONTMAN PAUL CATTEN, BARRABUS ARE FINALLY RELEASING THEIR DEBUT ALBUM, AND IT’S AS NOISY AND BARBARIC AS YOU MIGHT IMAGINE

“Yeah, we formed in 2005, or 2006, as a bit of a project, because Murder One were not sure whether they were going to carry on or not,” confirms Paul. “It was me, and my usual partner in crime, Mark [Seddon], and [Matt] Keen and Dan Marshall, who were both in and out of Murder One at times. We just wanted to get a band together that was more eclectic than what we were doing, and just wanted to do some gigs, so we got together and went out and did stuff with SikTh, Skindred and My Ruin… just generally jumping on bills and having a good time, without having any business ties to it all.”

But there were no official recordings, other than some home studio demos that made their way onto YouTube, and once Murder One split in 2007, and Paul and Mark began The Sontaran Experiment, Barrabus drifted apart.

About Terrorizer Magazine

I can still recall the phone call I had from Earache’s label manager Dan about this incredibly awesome Polish band the label had just signed called Decapitated. The enthusiasm that he conveyed down the phone line was infectious and although I was working for a more mainstream metal/rock mag at the time, and bands like Decapitated were on the periphery of the magazine’s demographic, I was excited to check them out. Sure enough the sheer power, professionalism and technical brilliance that pummelled out of the office speakers was enough to have me (and the office) hooked in a nanosecond. That was, of course, back in 2000 when Decapitated had just released their incredible (and still awesome) ‘Winds Of Creation’. Fast-forward seventeen years and even though Lady Luck has not, in many ways, been on the band’s side, Decapitated have continued to push their own creative boundaries and their new album ‘Anticult’ is testament to this. It’s a pleasure to have them grace Terrorizer’s new cover and we hope you enjoy reading about the album’s creation and everything that’s been going on in their world. Elsewhere, we’ve put all our collective blood, sweat, tears and breakdowns into ensuring we have all bases covered in the extreme world. It’s a volatile time right now, but music continues to bring plenty of pleasure, so indulge in it as much as you can! See you next month! Darren Sadler
