Vermont’s gritty progressive metal outfit BARISHI are streaming the title track off their new full-length, ‘Blood from the Lion’s Mouth’. The track is streaming now at Revolver Magazine.
BARISHI’s second full-length, and first for Season of Mist, will be released by worldwide on Sept. 16. Pre-orders for ‘Blood from the Lion’s Mouth’ are available now at the Season of Mist E-Shop.
Regarding the new track, the band comments, “‘Blood from the Lion’s Mouth’ was the first song we completed for this record. I think it set the mood album and is a good representation of the type of music we are interested in writing. It went through a ton of changes as we wrote it. Everyone brought something unique to the table, which I think resulted in a cool melting pot of ideas.”
‘Blood from the Lion’s Mouth’ was recorded by Brian Westbrook at PDP Recording (LICH KING) in Greenfield, MA during winter 2015-2016, and features cover art by Brian Mercer (LAMB OF GOD, BLACK TUSK, WILDLIGHTS and many more).
Regarding the album, the band comments,
“We’re really proud of this album. It was an absolute blast to both write and record. We spent last summer at home in Jamaica, Vermont writing constantly. Our goal was to come up with something that was cohesive as a whole but also had an individuality to each track. Our producer Brian Westbrook really went above and beyond with it’s production. He has such clear vision in regards to a song’s structure as well as it’s sonic potential. It was killer to work with him again.”

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
