The Death Metal band Barbarian Prophecies was formed in 2000 after the fusion of the bands Barbarianth and Venomous Prophecies.
In the beginning they got a place in the underground scene editing a demo called “Conquerors of the Wolfthrone” (2002), the Ep “War is Inminent” (2005) and their first album, “Condemned Land… the War Begins” (2009).
But it was not until 2011 when, after got a stable line up, they published their first fully professional record “Remember the Fallen”, recorded and mixed in the prolific Sadman Studios (Madird) by Carlos Santos and mastered by Mika Jussila in the Finnvox Studios from Helsinki.
“Remember the Fallen”allowed them touring all over the Spanish geography in several festivals, sharing scene with bands as important as Napalm Death.
Besides in October 2012 they performed their first international trip, a “mini-gig” that brought them till German lands, where three dates were taken place in Elmshorm and Hamburg, and where they played at the mitic Sala Logo.
After the great reception from the mass media and the audience, in December 2012 the band decided to enter recording the piece that will become their most ambicious record, not only in musical but in promotional level.
“XIII” will be on sale in the middle 2013 under the Italian label WormHoleDeath, that will take over for it’s international distribution.
It will consist in 13 songs recorded again under the supervision of Carlos Santos and mastered by Mika Jussila, in wich you will listen their personal vision about classic death metal.
“XIII” has the collaboration of several musicians friends of the band. For instance, Óscar Insua “Jumpin” who brings a guitar solo in the song “Embrace of Insanity” and who takes over the voices and the guitar solo in “Engulfed”, theme that he composed himself over 20 years ago for his former band, Absorbed, and then, Barbarian Prophecies included it as a tribute to one of the Spain Death Metal pioneers.
Raúl Muradás, who takes part opening the Lp with a piano and strings composition in “The Hidden”, and at last, guitarist as well, David Muñoz, who not only left his mark with another solo in “Embrace of Insanity” but he was responsible for the whole artwork.
