Barús evokes a weight, a burden.
Through music, it reveals an introspective state of mind: A grain of sand lost in the vastness. A questioning of all things. Death.
“For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men’s shoulders; but they themselves are unwilling to move them with so much as a finger.”
Matthew 23:4
Massive, crushing, raw, Barús 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 Barús monument. Like a lead downpour summond by imperious declamations and powerful, abysmal groans, the band’s music besieges the listerner’s senses and takes on a new dimension through the four tracks of this EP.
