The gritty progressive metal band BARISHI have announced a series of New England live dates. These new shows see BARISHI playing alongside Season of Mist label-mates REPLACIRE. Following these shows, BARISHI will also perform on May 5 at Waking Widows Fest in Vermont. A full list of confirmed live dates can be found below.
BARISHI are touring in support of their new album, ‘Blood from the Lion’s Mouth’. ‘Blood from the Lion’s Mouth’ was recorded by Brian Westbrook at PDP Recording in Greenfield, MA during winter 2015-2016, and features cover art by Brian Mercer (LAMB OF GOD, BLACK TUSK, WILDLIGHTS and many more). The album, hailed as “a brilliantly bizarre beast, blending the two differing sub-genres of sludge and black metal and somehow not sounding like a confused mess at the end result…From the metal itself to the artwork, every aspect of Blood from the Lion’s Mouth feels expertly executed.” (WhatCulture) is streaming here.
BARISHI recently released a new music video for the track “The Great Ennead”. The video, directed by Bobby Csehak showcases a live performance by the band, and is streaming now at the official Season of Mist YouTube Channel.

Established in 2010 in Southern Vermont by guitarist Graham Brooks, bassist Jon Kelley and drummer Dylan Blake, BARISHI have performed their unique take on metal throughout the east coast of the United States. Within two years of their formation, vocalist Sascha Simms joined the band and completed the lineup that would release a self-titled LP in 2013 to critical acclaim. BARISHI followed the release of their self-titled record with a national tour in support of guitarist Felix Martin, and recently toured across the US with WEEDEATER.

What the press is saying about BARISHI:
“…willfully avant-garde prog-metal…which mixes melodic and psychedelic tendencies with hardcore bite and bitterness and the same sort of autistic-savant creativity of Ihsahn’s solo output. Magic, in a word.” – NoCleanSinging.com
“a brilliant mix of progressive metal dynamics and inventive hardcore harshness that is at once creative, melodic, and captivating” – Ghost Cult Magazine
“weird, intense, and fascinating” – Sea of Tranquility
