Massive, crushing, raw, BARUS channels emotions through technical music while delivering a complex and sincere death metal. Alternating stiffling atmospheres and controlled chaos, the band seamlessly interweaves heavyness and raging fury to create musical pieces during which each sonic evolution is a stone added to the monolith that is BARUS.
The term βαρύς originates from ancient Greek: it conveys the notion of weight, of something imposing and of great moment. Metaphorically, it refers to a burden, something crushing and grievous to bear. BARÚS visceral and discomforting music serves as a medium for exploring the burdens of the human spirit such as grief, self-doubt and melancholy. Like a lead downpour summoned by imperious declamations and powerful, abysmal groans, the band’s music besieges the listener’s senses and takes on a new dimension through the four tracks of this EP.
