Barbarian Swords release "Anti-Dogma Megaforce"

In July 2022, Barbarian Swords recorded, mixed and mastered two albums with Javi Félez at Moontower Studios (Deströyer 666, Teitanblood, Graveyard, Balmog, Empty, Körgull The Exterminator...). Not a double album or two pieces that complement each other, no... A pair of totally independent records, each with its own destructive and overwhelming nature.

Through the Eternal Juggernaut Records label, and not without some controversy with another label that was to release the LP version, we now finally get the first of these works: Anti-Dogma Megaforce.

Following in the wake of their previous opus Totemic Anal Turbofucker, the Catalan band now enters another level of abomination by polishing the riffs and deepening the composition, especially thanks to Panzer, who has taken the lead in this facet. If Barbarian Swords started flirting with keyboards in their songs for the split Tetrarchia Ex Bestia, Panzer has now given them a new ghostly status, always without departing from the expected musical annihilation and extreme violence. In addition, Steamroller has also stepped up to the plate by creating ‘A Thousand Impaled Heads’, an epic ride that really will end up with your skull on a pike.

To the usual corrosive venom of Von Päx on the mic, we have to add the overwhelming and brutal drums of Uretra (Onirophagus), who has helped them in the studio together with Félez, who has contributed a solo on ‘Anti-Dogma Megaforce’. The cover artwork has been done by the legendary Chris Moyen (Incantation, Blasphemy, Aura Noir, Archgoat, Black Witchery, Morbosidad...), perfectly illustrating the wave of immorality, mass murders, or endless piles of corpses that the exacerbated nihilism and sick misanthropy of Barbarian Swords always entails.

The band’s fifth album should arrive in a few months, but in the meantime, get ready to see Barbarian Swords pulverizing all dogmas of faith, religious and ideological, right and left, without marrying anything or anyone.
