BARÚS : PREMIER EP DISPONIBLE EN ÉCOUTE INTÉGRALE


" Barús vient de Grenoble et fait du death metal. Mais attention, pas du death petit bras, linéaire et sans contours. Pour leur premier EP éponyme, ces français frappent fort avec quatre morceaux superbement conçus, modelés dans les moindres détails et travaillés jusqu'à l'os. La batterie vrombit, la basse est cinglante, les deux guitares rugissent à l'unisson et on se laisse happer par une voix maniaco-dépressive et parfois mélodique qui enfonce bien le clou. Bref, cet EP un bijou de technicité et de créativité chaudement recommandé. "

Barus Interview

1.Can you give us an update on what is going on with the band these days?

Quite a lot of things are happening at the moment. We have been working on Barús for about a year now, but only officially unveiled the band when we released our debut EP in March. Currently we’re pretty busy between promoting the EP, finding a label for a physical release and writing new material.

2.In March you had released an ep, how would you describe the musical sound that is presented on the recording?

Our sound aims to be oppressing, heavy and unsettling, with a mostly old school death metal approach mixed with some more modern or progressive structures and frequent references to other genres of extreme metal. I usually just say that we play death metal, since I find that technical/progressive/modern death metal can mean pretty much anything these days, and they’re scenes that we don’t feel particularly attached to.

3.The band formed out of the ashes of Project Jim, what was the cause of splitting up that band and starting a new one?


The evolution was natural to us. We took some time to reflect on the essence of the music we wanted to make, what it meant to us, and what we wanted to convey as a whole. This led us to step back from some of the experimental elements of Project JIM and focus on something more raw, heavy and atmospheric, something more personal. It seemed fitting to start fresh, because Barús is not just a change of name; it’s an entirely new entity.

4.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the music?

Musically, Barús expresses the burdens of the human spirit such as grief, self-doubt and melancholy. We express the sensation of powerlessness and insignificance that these burdens impose onto us, and how they condition the very essence of our beings. This leads to an introspective and sometime fatalistic vision of life and death. The lyrical topics in Barús address this in both a visceral and metaphorical way, exploring the sensation of death and of a misbalance between the spirit and the body.

5.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Barús'?

The word ‘Barús’ comes from ancient Greek. It translates weight in both a literal sense, something that is heavy, monolithic and imposing, and in a metaphorical sense, such as a mental burden, grief. It is at the basis of the subjects developed in our music.

6.Has the band done any live shows or has this been strictly a studio project so far?

We haven’t done any live shows under the name Barús yet, as we have only existed officially for a month now. We are a live band though and a significant part of our activity will be playing live.

7.Are there any plans for any live shows or tours?

All being well, we should have a few concerts lined up in France during the summer and fall. Tours aren’t easy to set up since we each play in several bands and work or study on the side but we’ll try to make it happen, at least on a local level.

8.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of extreme metal?

The feedback we have gathered so far has been very positive, from people in and outside of the death metal scene. This makes us eager to play the songs live.

9.What is going on with some of the other bands or musical projects these days that some of the band members are a part off?

Maïeutiste, a black metal band that two of us play in, will be releasing a first full-length album this September, with a series of concerts to promote the release. Our vocalist also sings in Deinmas, a grunge band that has a new demo out and is working on an EP. One of our guitarists has just embarked on a European tour with The Walking Dead Orchestra, his brutal death metal band, and they are working on a new album.

10.When can we expect a full length and also where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?

We’re currently working on our full length. We have already written and recorded demo versions of a lot of the songs on the album; hopefully we’ll be ready to start the studio recordings during this coming winter. Musically it follows on from the EP and will continue to elaborate on the same subject.

11.What are some of the bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?

I think in terms of metal in general we could mention bands like Converge, Deathspell Omega, Meshuggah (specifically the Catch 33 era), Ataraxie, Bethlehem. Our music doesn’t necessarily draw directly from the styles of these bands but they each have something unique and personal, a strong identity.
At the moment I listen to a lot of Ulver, mostly the electronic era and film score work. Concerning metal the latest Dead Congregation is great.

12.What are some of your non musical interests?

We each have pretty diverse interests, but most of us spend the majority of our free time writing and producing music.

13.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?

Thanks for the interview! For anyone interested in our music head over to our bandcamp page:

Interview: Barús – Technical/Progressive Death Metal from France
by CDPROD •

FREE download: Barús - Progressive Death Metal EP Extreme metal record labels should be taking a good listen to Barús because this French progressive death metal band is ready to go! Check out their self-titled EP(it’s free!) and read this interview with James (guitar) and Keithan (vocals)!

Can you tell me about the creation of Barús? How did Barús rise from Project Jim?

J: Barús was initiated in silence roughly a year ago. Most of the members go back to Project JIM, which was an experimental death metal band with quite a modern approach, mixing some black/dark metal influences through Keithan’s vocals. In 2011 a line up change set us back and the band was fairly inactive for two years. The time off allowed us to reconsider our objectives. We wanted to aim for something more visceral, heavier and darker, keeping progressive elements but staying clear of the modern technical/progressive death scene, which I feel is driven more and more by musical virtuosity, leaving it emotionally barren. Shortly after we completed our current line-up we decided that this change in musical direction required a fresh start, a new identity that embodied this approach. In this sense Barús is not a logical continuation of Project JIM, and we don’t play any of the old songs anymore. From there on we started working on our EP, deciding not to unveil the band until its completion.Barús - Barús EP 2015

Can you tell us about your new self-titled Barús EP? Where can someone get a hold of it?


J: It is a four song EP that we released in March 2015. We recorded and produced it ourselves, trying to render the energy, dynamics and musical intention of each instrument as faithfully as possible, rather than going for a more surgical sound. We worked with Alexander Brown on the artwork, who did a fantastic job.

K: We spent time finding a sound that was meaningful in regards to what we are attracted to in music, especially in metal. Nowadays in the death metal scene, a lot of people desire to create intensity and concentrate their energy on always more extreme rhythms and tempos, but in our opinion forget the most important thing to bring the sensation of this rough and intense aesthetic: the tone. That was our first research, despite the fact that we were forced to record all the tracks on our own as James mentioned. Thankfully, we were helped by Bertrand Guegan for drum recording and Eddy Dorigny for the mastering, who both did great work.

J: As of yet the EP is available digitally on our Bandcamp page, in free download or name-your-price format. In the current state of things we prefer to make our music available as largely as possible, while giving people the possibility to show support and help sustain our activity if they want to and have the means to. We’re looking to release the EP in a physical format in the near future.

Can you describe the sound of Barús? Who are your influences?

J: I would say that our sound aims to be dense, oppressing and unsettling. We play death metal with a fairly old school approach, at least in terms of sound and rawness, and mix that with more modern or progressive song structures. We also frequently borrow atmospheres and sounds from black and sometimes doom metal.

K: About the influences of Barús, we can give you some artists that bring frantic energies in their music: I would say Converge, Burden (US), Dead Congregation, Bloody Sign, Triptykon, Ataraxie, Portal, Deathspell Omega…

Listening to the EP I think Barús are ready for a full-length. Are you currently seeking a label for Barús? If a label owner is reading this, what’s the best way to get in contact with Barús?

J: Thanks for the compliment. Yes, we are currently looking for a label to release a physical version of our EP and for our future projects. The easiest way to get in touch with us is by email at: barusband@gmail.com or via our Facebook page.

Will Barús play live?

J: Absolutely, yes. Something I deeply respect in certain bands is their ability to create a strong emotional atmosphere live, to transcend the standard context of a metal concert and bring people somewhere mentally, whether it is an enjoyable place or a state of real uneasiness, sadness or anger. So we’re definitely looking forward to try and transpose what Barús means to us in a live setting. We should have a few French dates lined up for this summer/fall, and are looking for more.

What does Barús mean and why did you choose this name for the band?


J: The word Barús is ancient Greek, it translates the notion of weight, on a physical level (something heavy, imposing, and of great moment) and on a metaphorical level (something burdensome, grievous to bear, cruel). This applies to the themes and emotions developed in our music, as well as a description of the way they are put into sound, in a rather monolithic, oppressive and relentless manner.

What are the lyrical themes of Barús?

K: The lyrics find their foundation in sensations that everybody can feel when something goes wrong, whatever it may be: the strange sensation that the mind can sometimes not be in symbiosis with the body, like the feeling of being outside of our shells. For me, when mind and body aren’t in harmony anymore, you can feel this awareness of being alive and, by extension, think about the concept of death. I use this sensation as a nucleus to write the lyrics and I can use different forms of writing: what I feel, what I think, with symbolisms or analogies. For this EP I started to search an image which evokes a burden: I saw a pillar with no end, overlooking me as if it could fall on me at any moment, revealing the sensation that some things can happen with no possible escape, no way of avoiding the impact. The first full length is the continuation of this subject, it is almost entirely written.

When not playing in Barús, what are some of the things you like to do in your spare time?

J: Most of us are involved in several other musical projects, some in styles quite far from extreme metal such as rock or ambient electronic music. I myself work in research on computer-based sound synthesis, and spend a lot of my free time recording and producing music.

K: For my part I returned to university to study performing arts (mostly theatre and cinema), but making music is what takes up the most of our time on a daily basis. We like to play in different projects and different styles; it reminds us that everybody can be manifold.

Can you please give me your opinion on the following four albums?
1. Mercyless – Abject Offerings 1992


J: Nice old school death with some dark atmospheres.

K: I have heard their two first full lengths before. It’s an interesting mix of thrash and death but I’m not fond of it.

2. Asgard – To a Golden Age 1996



K: I didn’t know this band before, raw and chromatic riffs. Not bad but I always need a lot of time to voice an opinion about something I discover.

J: Same here, I like some of the the slower parts like the middle/ending section of ‘Day in Val-hall’.

3. Traumatic Voyage – Traumatic… 1992



J: I love the vocals, the way they sound desperate and urging, a little similar at times to Landfermann-era Bethlehem. The music as a whole has an unsettling and eerie depth to it. I wasn’t very familiar with the band prior to this interview, it’s a really interesting listen.

K: I heard this album twice, a long time ago, I think in 2008. I appreciate the way that Astorian tried to create a sort of absolute art, the voice is truly expressive despite the standards suggested in the genre. I keep quite a good memory of this full length although I wasn’t transcended by it.

4. Carcariass – Hell on Earth 1997


J: I’m not a fan. The sound is good and everything is very well executed, but it’s a little too technical and all over the place for my tastes. I can’t really get past the musical performance and figure out what feelings it evokes, whereas with Traumatic Voyage it was clear within ten seconds.

K: This is not my thing at all, the same as James.

What are your future plans and ambitions for Barús? Is a full-length album in the works?

J: We’re working on our first full-length album at the moment, hoping to finish writing the material this year and begin recording early 2016. I’m excited about it and feel very confident about the form that Barús has taken, I’m doing my best to remain patient because these things always take time and we don’t want to rush it.

Some of the members of Barús also play in Maïeutiste and Wolflust. Both bands tend to head in a more black metal style of direction. Are these bands both still active and do either have new releases that are now available?

K: I can’t say too much about Maïeutiste right now, because an announcement will be arriving soon. I can say that we worked a lot on the first full length, during seven years, and that Barús follows a similar artistic process. By the way James is also in this project, he joined last year.

J: Wolflust has recently undergone some changes and the line up isn’t complete at the moment. However, the core members are still very much active, and new material is on the way, although the form it will take is not completely defined yet.

That’s all from my end, thanks for your time! Best of luck with Barús and feel free to add any information that may have not been covered in this interview.

J: Thanks for the interview and the well thought-out questions! For anyone interested in obtaining our EP check out our Bandcamp page and for any other information or discussion about the possibility of releasing a physical version we can be contacted via barusband@gmail.com. Keep up the great work with the Webzine.(Thank you, I’ll try! CDPROD)

K: Thank you for this interview, I will conclude by saying that our next release will be truly intense, be prepared!

Interview faite par Murderworks

Salut les gars, étant donné que c'est votre première réalisation je pense qu'une petite présentation du groupe s'impose.

James (guitare) : Bonjour à toi. Nous sommes BARÚS, un groupe de death metal basé à Grenoble. Nous avons officialisé notre existence en sortant un premier EP éponyme en Mars 2015. Certains d’entre nous évoluent également dans d’autres formations metal de la région, à savoir Caïnan Dawn, Maïeutiste et The Walking Dead Orchestra.

D'ailleurs d'où vient le nom du groupe ?

Le terme βαρúς est issu du grec ancien. Il traduit la notion de poids, de fardeau, pouvant être interprété au sens littéral de quelque chose de lourd et d’imposant mais également au sens métaphorique pour désigner les fardeaux de l’esprit humain, le chagrin. Il constitue en quelque sorte la pierre angulaire de notre propos musical tout en formant une description de l’esthétique sonore que nous recherchons, avec une musique pesante, monolithique et anxiogène.

En voyant les titres des morceaux je me demandais si il y avait un concept qui les liait ? "Cherub" qui évoque une figure d'ange, le tarot qui peut faire indirectement penser aux arts divinatoires, "Chalice" etc... Un fil rouge spirituel ou occulte relie-t-il ces 4 morceaux ?

Effectivement, tu vises juste. Cela dit, nous nous gardons de révéler ici ce qui pourrait s'apparenter à nos croyances. Cette aura spirituelle n'est ici qu'un substrat pour la musique, un moyen d'appliquer de multiples interprétations sur ce que nous faisons. Si nous devions donner un mot à notre tentative, ce serait l'insondable : cela doit toujours faire partie de nos compositions.

La pochette est à la fois belle et intrigante, qui l'a réalisée ? Est-ce qu'elle exprime quelque chose de particulier ?
L’artwork de l’EP a été réalisé par l’artiste néozélandais Alexander L. Brown, qui a marqué par son travail de nombreux albums de la scène extrême underground. Le pilier de la pochette est un symbole fort, décrivant en un sens notre musique : celle d'un édifice semblant sans fin, qui malgré son aura figé, semble lentement s'écraser à notre vue. Nous cherchions à révéler une métaphore du fardeau sous des attraits ornementés, comme si quelque chose de banal devenait soudain vénérable.


Le groupe est présenté comme faisant du death, ce qui est effectivement le cas mais on sent quelques dissonances qu'on retrouve plus dans le black et une lourdeur quasiment doom. Je suppose que vos influences qu'elles soient musicales ou non sont assez variées ?

En effet, même si notre musique est ancrée principalement dans le death metal, nous nous autorisons à l’adapter et la plier à nos besoins, quitte à puiser ouvertement dans des sonorités et des textures issues d’autres scènes. Ce n’est pas tellement une volonté explicite de métissage, je dirais plutôt que dans notre processus de composition toute forme musicale qui fait sens en rapport avec les sensations et émotions que nous voulons développer et avec l’esthétique globale de notre musique est bonne à prendre.

Même si la plupart des membres font partie d'autres groupes, il n'empêche que Barús s'est formé récemment, malgré ça vous avez déjà un EP. Soit les morceaux étaient prêts depuis un moment soit vous êtes rapides. Du coup vous avez déjà du matériel de côté pour un premier album ?

En réalité le travail sur BARÚS a commencé il y a plus d’un an. Nous avions des choses en gestation, avons pris le temps d’expliciter là où nous voulions aller, puis nous sommes attelés à travailler, presque totalement dans l’ombre, sur notre première production. Nous voulions frapper d’emblée avec un projet déjà consolidé, une identité sonore et visuelle marquée. Nous avons également rapidement commencé à travailler en vue de notre premier album en parallèle de tout ça. A l’heure actuelle, l’écriture est presque terminée, ce qui devrait nous permettre de commencer à enregistrer autour de la fin d’année pour une sortie en 2016. Sur le plan thématique et musical l’album s’inscrira dans la continuité de l’EP.

Qui s'est occupé de la production ? parce que le son est assez énorme pour un premier EP.

Tout d’abord merci ! C’est une autoproduction pure. Plusieurs d’entre nous touchent un peu à la production musicale, moi-même plus particulièrement. Tout a été enregistré dans notre home studio et dans notre local de répétition, la contrainte majeure étant comme bien souvent budgétaire : tout en disposant de moyens matériels relativement limités, il était impératif pour nous de trouver un son qui nous corresponde et qui fasse sens avec notre démarche. Nous avons toujours été assez friands de productions un peu plus old school dans le death, à la fois sales et puissantes, qui bavent un peu… un son vivant, plus personnel et qui devient partie intégrante de l’identité d’un groupe. Nous sommes partis dans la recherche de cette esthétique sonore (batterie entièrement acoustique et sans trigger par exemple) pour la mélanger à un propos musical un peu plus moderne. Nous avons fait appel à Bertrand Guegan, un ingénieur du son et bon ami à nous, pour nous assister sur les prises batterie et avons délégué le mastering à Eddy Dorigny. Nous sommes très satisfaits du résultat et avons hâte de pousser cette démarche encore plus loin avec le futur album.


De plus en plus de groupes décident de se passer de label en passant par exemple par le crowdfunding qui marche bien ces derniers temps. Le fait que cet EP soit une autoproduction est un choix ou vous pensez migrer quand même sur un label prochainement ?


Le choix de l’auto-production nous semblait naturel pour lancer le groupe et avoir une maîtrise de toute la chaîne, jusqu’au rendu final. Sur ce côté-là nous sommes plutôt autonomes. Là où ça devient plus délicat, c’est concernant la diffusion, notamment sur un support physique. Je pense qu’en tant que groupes "amateurs", on a tous pressé au moins un CD nous-mêmes, pour se rendre compte que sans réel support de distribution autre que le bouche à oreille et les quelques ventes en concert, on se retrouve vite avec un stock de 300 CDs qui traînent dans un garage. Passer par un label me semble important dans cette mesure. Des plans sont actuellement en discussion et nous espérons avoir une sortie physique d’ici la fin d’année. Quant au crowdfunding, la formule est clairement intéressante et c’est un super moyen pour des groupes de pouvoir être aidés dans le financement de la production d’un album, de même finalement que le soutien un peu plus direct pour les artistes permis par les plateformes telles que Bandcamp.


Je sais que ce n'est pas forcément évident financièrement, mais votre musique a des ambiances très marquées et se prêterait bien à un développement vidéo. Dans l'absolu c'est un domaine qui vous tente ?


Complètement, oui. Les modalités sont encore à définir mais nous avons déjà le projet de réaliser au moins une vidéo autour d’un morceau de l’EP. D’ailleurs le crowdfunding serait une option intéressante pour pouvoir le faire. Ce sera à l’image des textes de BARÚS, quelque chose d’assez imagé et surréaliste. On n’a pas trop l’envie d’aller s’enregistrer jouer dans un entrepôt abandonné, je pense qu’il y a plus pertinent à faire vis-à-vis de notre musique !

Est-ce qu'on aura prochainement la possibilité de vous voir en live ?

Oui, d’ailleurs nous sommes montés sur scène pour la première fois sous le nom de BARÚS il y a quelques jours, à Saint Etienne. Une série de concerts est en train de se monter pour la rentrée, notamment une belle date à Chambéry pour le "Dark Night II" avec Temple Of Baal et Malmort. D’autres dates sont en train de se confirmer, ça s’annonce bien. Une des choses que je respecte énormément chez certains groupes, c’est l’aptitude à créer un contexte émotionnel puissant sur scène, de passer outre les standards parfois un peu caricaturaux du concert de metal et de réellement amener les auditeurs quelque part mentalement, que ce soit un endroit de bien être et d’apaisement ou au contraire un climat de mélancolie, de colère ou de malaise. Nous avons hâte d’explorer et transmettre ce que signifie Barús pour nous dans un contexte live. Je pense que ce sera une expérience oppressante et inconfortable pour l’auditeur (dans le bon sens du terme, enfin si ça existe).

Le traditionnel mot de la fin est à vous, si vous avez quelque chose à rajouter c'est le moment.
Merci pour l’interview et pour l’attention portée à notre musique ! Notre premier EP est disponible en prix libre sur Bandcamp, on espère pouvoir vous croiser bientôt sur scène.

Summon: How did the band get started?

James: Most of us started playing together in a previous band, named Project JIM, which played more of an experimental and technical style of death metal. Our previous drummer left the band in 2011, which resulted in us being on standby for quite a long time. Before and during this period our influences progressively matured and shifted towards something resolutely more death metal, heavier in atmosphere, leaving some of the technicality aside. Once we found our current drummer, we quickly decided to wipe the slate clean and start something new: Barús.



Summon: What kind of music do you play?

James: I would say we play a dense, oppressing, and monolithic form of death metal. We’ve been called progressive death metal, which considering what we play is quite fitting, but we’re not very attached to the progressive/technical death scene, and feel a lot closer to old school death, at least in terms of rawness and atmosphere.




Summon: How has the fan response been?


James: The response to our first EP (released in March this year) has been pretty amazing! We’ve had very positive reviews and overall great feedback, from people all over the world actually. It’s nice when you put out music that is very personal and has a strong meaning for you, and that people understand it and appropriate it.



Summon: Where did the band name come from?

James: The word ‘Barús’ comes from ancient Greek. It translates weight in both a literal sense, something that is heavy, monolithic and imposing, and in a metaphorical sense, such as a mental burden, grief. It is at the basis of the subjects developed in our music.



Summon: Introduce the band members and what they do in the band.

James: We have Keithan on vocals, Rémi on bass, Alexis on drums, and Marco and James (myself) on guitars.



Summon: Who writes the music? Lyrics?

James: I write most of the music, but sometimes we also use a more collaborative approach, generally for musical arrangements. Keithan writes nearly all the vocals.


Summon: And where do the lyric ideas come from?

James: Barús expresses the burdens of the human spirit such as grief, self-doubt and melancholy, with an introspective and sometime fatalistic vision of life and death. The lyrical topics address this in both a visceral and metaphorical way.



Summon: What is your view in Satanism and Occultism?

James: I think that Satanism in extreme metal can be very interesting when taken from a more philosophical standpoint, for instance the way Deathspell Omega discuss it in their lyrics. I do find that a lot of bands, especially in black metal, tend to use Satanism in quite a caricatured way, which is a bit of a shame. I’m much more interested in the notion of Occultism, as least in music, as it points on a much larger scale towards the unknown and the immeasurable, a mysterious force. So while I definitely wouldn’t call Barús a Satanist band, some of the aspects of our music could be called Occult, the lyrics in particular.



Summon: How many albums/CD’s have you released?

James: Our self-titled EP is our first release (March 2015).



Summon: Tell me about some the songs on the latest CD?

James: There are four songs on our first EP. “Tarot” is probably the rawest song, alternating between frenetic dissonant sections and some very rhythmic and groove-oriented parts. “Disillusions” is more progressive, and moody. “Chalice” is quite monolithic, with a certain Occult side. “Cherub” finishes the EP and mostly revolves around slow death/doom. I won’t say too much, since it will be nicer for people to discover the songs for themselves.



Summon: Do you have any side projects?

James: Yes. Within metal, Keithan and myself play in Maïeutiste, a French black metal band. Our first album will be released on September 19 2015 through the French label Les Acteurs de l’Ombre. Keithan also plays bass in Caïnan Dawn (black metal) and Marco plays in The Walking Dead Orchestra, a brutal death band. Outside of metal we also have several projects, ranging from grunge rock to ambient electronic music.



Summon: Who are some of your musical influences?

James: I think in terms of metal in general we could mention bands like Converge, Deathspell Omega, Burden (US), Meshuggah (specifically the Catch 33 era), Ataraxie, Bethlehem. Our music doesn’t necessarily draw directly from the styles of these bands but they each have something unique and personal, a strong identity. Also a lot of bands outside of metal, like Ulver (mostly the electronic work), Mogwai and such.



Summon: Which current bands?

James: Most of the above really, since they are (nearly) all still active. There are a bunch of great current bands, but as for Barús we try to look mostly inwards for inspiration and try to avoid drawing explicitly from other bands. It’s more interesting and satisfying to try to create something personal and maybe a little different from other stuff going on.




Summon: What is the band like when you play live?

James: We’ve only played live once so far, as Barús has only existed officially for 6 months (since we released our EP). We try for it to be representative of the themes of our music: something heavy, uncomfortable and oppressing.



Summon: Have you guys ever played in another country?

James: Not yet with Barús but some of us have with our other projects. We will definitely try to if we can in the future.




Summon: How big of crowd shows up at shows usually?


James: It’s hard to say, since we have only played one live gig so far. We have several shows this Fall, so we’ll see!



Summon: How is the crowd response when you play?

James: Again, we have only played live once as Barús, but the response was great. I think people understood what we were about: that we weren’t there to get people head-banging and moshing, but we wanted to cast the dark and oppressive aura of our music onto them for the duration of our set.



Summon: What do you think of the US Black Metal/Death Metal scene?

James: To be honest I don’t know the US black scene as well as I should. There’s a lot of good death metal coming out of the US, though I’m more into the old school murky stuff than modern death metal.




Summon: What do you think of the Overseas scenes?

James: I suppose it depends where you are, but to a certain extent things are always the same: there is a lot of pretty bland music going around, but also a lot of hidden gems, even very small bands. As for France some interesting stuff is coming out at the moment, although not too many that come to mind in terms of death metal (at least the type of death metal that we are into).



Summon: What are some of new favorite black metal/death metal bands?

James: The latest things to have really caught my eye are Dead Congregation (fantastic death metal), Lychgate’s “An Antidote for the Glass Pill” (very experimental and well written black metal), anything by Undergang (very dirty old school death metal) and also “Through Lung and Heart” by Devouring Star, a Finnish band (occult black death).




Summon: When do you guys plan on writing any new material?

James: We have just finished writing and demo recording for our first full length album, so we should start the actual recordings during the winter.



Summon: What does the future hold for the band??

James: Hopefully a physical release of our first EP (we’re discussing it with a French label) and also finding a deal for our upcoming album! And we’re looking forward to playing more Barús shows, in France and abroad.

Rise metal _ Uruguay

http://risemetal.com/2015/09/16/entrevista-barus/



Desde Grenoble, Francia, proviene Barús, banda de metal extremo surgida a principios de este año, quienes fusionan varios estilos para generar un sonido verdaderamente explosivo y complejo. Kwiecio, nuestro corresponsal en Polonia, estuvo hablando con el guitarrista James Leonard, quien habló acerca de todo lo que refiere al primer EP de la banda, entre otros temas.



RISE!: – Para comenzar, cuál ha sido la mayor aventura que has tenido en tu vida?

James Leonard: Esa es una primera pregunta complicada! Asumiré que es una pregunta relacionada a la banda y no personal, lo cual hace que la respuesta sea un poco complicada, ya que Barús existe desde Marzo de este año. El proceso completo de establecer la banda, definir los objetivos y grabar nuestro primer EP ha sido una aventura genial… deberíamos tener algunas historias más emocionantes para contar a medida que la banda continúe.

R!: – Han lanzado recientemente su primer EP. Cómo han sido las reacciones generales hacia el CD hasta ahora? Pensás que tuvieron la producción que querían?

JL: La respuesta hasta ahora ha sido excelente. Hemos tenido reviews muy positivas para el EP hasta el momento. Está disponible solo en formato digital por ahora; estamos trabajando en un lanzamiento en CD, el cual estará disponible en algún momento a fines de 2015.
En cuanto a la producción, grabamos y mezclamos todo nosotros mismos. Más allá de tener que hacer todo con nuestros tiempos y con un presupuesto muy limitado, pienso que el sonido final tiene un cierto carisma y hace justicia a los temas y a la estética que estábamos buscando. Así que sí, siento que alcanzamos la producción que queríamos, aunque igualmente podremos perfeccionar nuestro sonido en los futuros lanzamientos de la banda.

R!: – Su música a veces es enredada y compleja. Qué hay del proceso de composición de los temas? Componen en la sala de ensayo o en casa?

JL: El proceso creativo es bastante natural para nosotros. En general uno de nosotros comienza grabando elementos como demo en casa, ya sea un par de riffs o un tema completo. La mayor parte del proceso de composición es básicamente comenzar con una idea simple, pulirla y ver hacia donde fluye, mientras intentamos mantenernos imparciales respecto a elementos externos y dejamos que las cosas sucedan. Cuando se llega al punto donde ya no se oyen una serie de riffs, sino que se siente una emoción, una cierta atmósfera… eso generalmente significa que la canción está yendo hacia algún lado.
Una vez que estas versiones demo están terminadas, las tocamos todos juntos y generalmente arreglamos cosas por acá y por allá. Por otra parte, las letras y las voces son casi exclusivamente escritas y pensadas por Keithan, nuestro vocalista. Él se toma su tiempo para absorber la música, y luego propone el contenido lírico y la parte vocal.



R!: – En Facebook ustedes definen su música como Death Metal, pero no estoy seguro si eso es apropiado, ya que mezclan muchos géneros, oigo algo de Black Metal, Post-Metal e incluso algo de Djent y otros estilos. Refleja esto su gusto personal?

JL: Pienso que el Death Metal es el ancla de nuestra música, pero definitivamente tenemos cosas de varios géneros. El tópico y los sentimientos que expresamos en nuestra música pueden ser expresados a través de varias formas de Metal o incluso de diferentes estilos musicales mezclados. Definitivamente estamos más interesados en explorar ciertos terrenos en lugar de clasificarnos en un género en particular, y eso refleja nuestros gustos personales en la música y en la vida en general.
Nuestra música tiene como objetivo ser poderosa, sombría, agresiva, turbia, a veces nauseabunda, lo cual sentimos que es mejor representado por el Death Metal. Así que si incluso, por ejemplo, encontrás algún trabajo rítmico más parecido al Djent (o Metal Experimental como era llamado anteriormente, no soy muy fan del moderno “Djent”), siempre se integra dentro de esta estética cruda, con similitudes e influencias de la vieja escuela del Death.

R!: – Cuál es el significado de la portada de su EP? Quién es el autor y sienten que está en armonía con las letras?

JL: La portada tiene un fuerte significado en lo que respecta a lo que expresamos con nuestra música. Para ser más preciso, Keithan generalmente forma imágenes mentales asociadas a las canciones durante la fase de composición. El arte es un resultado de este proceso: representa algo simbólico, difícil de comprender, magnífico y terrorífico al mismo tiempo. Fue hecho por Alexander Brown, a quien le pedimos que representara esta estructura icónica con su propia sensibilidad artística; queríamos que la columna luciera como si se estuviera por caer en cualquier momento.

R!: – Qué tópicos tocan en las letras?

JL: Las letras son en su mayoría introspectivas y están relacionadas a preguntas existenciales. La manera abstracta de escribir de Keithan tiene que ver con luchas emocionales, la sensación de muerte, dudas existenciales y la manera en que estas cosas nos definen como individuos. Pero más que nada, las letras están compuestas con una estructura narrativa que une a todos los temas. Auras esotéricas y seglares son combinadas para generar algo misterioso.
Podríamos entrar en más detalles, pero prefiero no contar demasiado. El misterio es amigo del conocimiento, contrariamente a lo que nos hacen creer.

R!: – Siendo parte de la escena francesa, cómo la ves? Hay alguna banda nueva que la gente debería chequear?


JL: En los últimos años ha habido algunas bandas interesantes provenientes de Francia, especialmente en el metal extremo, a veces con un enfoque inusual y experimental. Pienso que los últimos discos de bandas como Deathspell Omega influenciaron a alguna gente y de alguna manera se ha puesto el ojo en este tipo de cosas provenientes de Francia.
Pienso que la escena francesa es probablemente igual que en cualquier otro lado. Hay un montón de cosas promedio o pasables, pero cuando investigás un poco más encontrás varios tesoros escondidos, a veces desconocidos para el público en general. En cuanto a bandas, un montón de buen material está saliendo del sello under Les Acteurs De L’Ombre, como por ejemplo The Great Old Ones.



R!: – Cómo ves los shows que han hecho hasta ahora?

JL: En realidad solo hemos hecho un show bajo el nombre de Barús, ya que oficialmente “revelamos” la banda cuando lanzamos el EP en Marzo. El show fue excelente, y estamos listo para hacer muchos más en este otoño (boreal).

R!: – Además de Barús, están tocando en otras bandas? O tocaron en bandas antes de Barús?

JL: La mayoría de nosotros tocamos en varias bandas. Dos de nosotros tocamos en Maïeutiste, una banda de Black Metal, cuyo primer álbum será lanzado via Les Acteurs De L’Ombre en Setiembre. Marco, nuestro guitarrista, también toca en una banda de Brutal Death, The Walking Dead Orchestra, y Keithan también toca en Caïnan Dawn, una banda de Black Metal. Más allá de esto, la mayoría de nosotros también tenemos proyectos fuera del Metal, desde el Grunge hasta la música ambiental electronica.

R!: – Ustedes viven cerca de las montañas de los Alpes en Grenoble. Es un pueblo de tamaño medio, verdad? Hay algunas otras bandas por ahí? Cuál es la condición de la escena local?

JL: Sí, es un pueblo de tamaño medio, es bastante dinámica pero aún así es cómoda, es una escala humana donde podés conocer gente y lugares, y hacer lo tuyo.
Hay un montón de bandas de metal, tal vez no tantas de Death Metal, pero algunas destacables. La escena del Black Metal se ha hecho bastante fuerte últimamente también, especialmente si considerás Chambéry (a 45 minutos de distancia, en Savoie) también. La escena en Grenoble es buena, sin embargo es un poco centrada en sí misma, así que también estamos intentando tener exposición fuera de ella.

R!: – Francia es un país muy tolerante donde hay un montón de inmigrantes. En nuestro país hay mucha discusión acerca de las varias consecuencias de la entrada de Musulmanes a Europa. Podrías decirnos cuál es tu opinión al respecto?

JL: Pienso que tolerante es una palabra un poco fuerte teniendo en cuenta algunos acontecimientos recientes, pero supongo que no nos está yendo tan mal. Para ser honesto, como banda no tenemos interés en dar un mensaje o visión política, nuestra música tiene como objetivo una visión más introspectiva o incluso filosófica. Lo que es frecuentemente visto como “problemas” tiene raíz en desigualdad social, diferencias culturales… la gente tiene una gran tendencia a simplificar todo, a veces dan miedo e inevitablemente termina en odio y más odio y todo así. Lo dejaré así.

R!: – Están los franceses atentos a lo que pasa en Europa del Este? Están atentos a la condición de los países distantes de la Unión Europea y cuál es su opinión acerca de ello y los estereotipos de funcionamiento?


JL: Para ser honesto, pienso que en tiempos de crisis económica como estos, la gente se centra más en sí misma. Ves cosas desde lejos en los medios, por ejemplo la situación en Ucrania, pero poca gente (y me incluyo, debo admitir) va a buscar información extra para poder entender la situación.

R!: – Cómo se ve el resto del 2015 para Barús?

JL: El final del año se ve genial para nosotros. Si todo sale bien deberíamos tener un lanzamiento físico para el EP, tenemos algunos grandes shows en el futuro, incluyendo uno con Temple of Baal y Malmort. Nuestro primer álbum está en camino, la composición y las grabaciones demo están casi completas, así que deberíamos estar entrando a grabar el álbum en Noviembre o Diciembre.

R!: – Algo más que quieran agregar para concluir la entrevista?


JL: Gracias por esta entrevista y darnos algo de exposición! Quienes estén interesados en nuestra música pueden chequear https://barus.bandcamp.com, nuestro EP está disponible para descargar o comprar, y estén atentos al lanzamiento físico en algún momento a fines de año!

BARÚS INTERVIEW
Author: Kwiecio



BARÚS
Hi, the beginning question is: what has been the greatest adventure of your life?
That’s a tough first question! I’ll assume it is band related and not personal, which makes the answer a little tricky since Barús has only existed officially since March this year. The whole process of getting the band together, defining goals and recording our first EP has been an awesome adventure… we should have some more compelling stories to tell as the band continues to move forward.


Your last release is your new, debut EP. How have the general reactions to the CD been so far? Do you think you got the production you were looking for?
Response so far has been great. We have had very positives reviews for the EP so far. It is only available in digital format at the moment; we're working on a CD release somewhere near the end of 2015. Concerning the production we recorded and mixed the whole thing ourselves. Despite having to do everything on our own time and with a very limited budget I think that the final sound has a certain charisma to it and does justice to the songs and the aesthetic that we were aiming for. So yes, I feel that we reached the production we wanted, even though we will be able to perfect our sound for the band's future releases.

Your music is sometimes hard tangled and twisted. What about the process of creating songs? Do you write in the practice room or at home?
The creative process we go through is fairly natural. In general one of us starts by recording some demo elements at home, whether it's a couple of riffs or a complete song. Much of the writing process is basically starting from a simple idea, pulling that thread and seeing where it leads, while trying to remain unbiased by external elements and just letting things happen. When it gets to the point where you are no longer hearing a series of riffs but feeling an emotion, a certain atmosphere… that usually means that the song is going somewhere.
Once these demo versions are built we play them together and usually tweak things here and there. The lyrics and vocals on the other hand are almost exclusively written and thought out by Keithan, our vocalist. He takes some time to let the music soak in, and then proposes the lyrical content and vocal placement.

You define your music on facebook as a death metal, but I don`t know it`s a apropriate4you mix many different genres together, I hear there some of black metal, post-metal, even I hear djent there and other styles - does this reflect your personal taste?
I think that Death metal remains the anchor of our music, but we definitely draw from many genres. The theme and feelings expressed in our music can be conveyed through many forms of metal or even different musical styles altogether. We're definitely more interested in exploring certain moods rather than qualifying to one genre in particular, and that reflects our personal tastes in music and life in general.
Our music aims to be powerful, grim, aggressive, murky, sometimes nauseating, which we feel is mostly represented by Death Metal. So even if, for instance, you find some rhythmic work more akin to djent (or experimental metal as it was called before it all went downhill – I’m not a fan of modern "djent") it always integrates into this raw aesthetic, with similarities and influences from the old school death scene.

What is the meaning of the cover of your EP? Who is its author and is that harmonizes with the lyrics?
The cover has a strong meaning in regards to what we express in our music. To be more precise, Keithan generally forms mental images associated to the songs during the writing phase. The artwork is a result of this process: it represents something symbolic, difficult to apprehend, magnificent and terrifying at the same time. It was made by Alexander Brown, who we asked to represent this iconic structure with his own artistic sensibility; we wanted the pillar to seem as if it could fall at any time.

Lyrically what kind of subjects do you write about?

The lyrics are mostly introspective and relate to existential questions. Keithan’s writing deals in an abstract manner about emotional struggles, the sensation of death, self-doubt, and the way these things define us as individuals. But most of all, the lyrics are composed with a narrative structure that ties the songs together. Secular and esoteric auras are mixed together to bring forth something mysterious.
We could go into more detail, but we prefer not to tell too much. Mystery is the friend of knowledge, contrary to what we are usually led to believe.

Being a part of the French scene how do you see it? Are there any upcoming bands that people should look out for?

In the last few years there have been quite a few interesting bands coming out of France, especially in extreme metal, sometimes with an unusual and avant-garde approach. I think the last few records of bands such as Deathspell Omega influenced quite a few people and also put a bit of a spotlight on this kind of thing coming out of France.
I think the French scene is probably the same as everywhere. Quite a lot of average or bland stuff but when you dig a little you find many hidden treasures, sometimes completely unknown to the general public. As for bands, a lot of good stuff is coming out of the French underground label "Les Acteurs de l'Ombre", The Great Old Ones for instance.


How do you look back on the shows you did so far?
We've actually only done one show under the name Barús, as we officially "unveiled" the band when we released the EP in March. The show was great though, and we are getting ready to play a bunch more this coming fall.

Besides Barús, are you currently in other bands? Or you played before your current band?

Most of us play in several bands. Two of us play in Maïeutiste, a black metal band, whose first album will be released via Les Acteurs de L'Ombre this September. Marco, our guitarist also plays in a Brutal Death band, The Walking Dead Orchestra, and Keithan also plays in the black metal band Caïnan Dawn. Other than these most of us also have some projects outside of metal, ranging from grunge to ambient electronic music.

You live close to the mountains of the Alps in Grenoble. It is rather a medium-sized town, right? Are there any other bands there? What is the condition of the local scene?
Yes it's a pretty mid-size town, it's quite dynamic but still feels comfortable, it's a human scale where you can get to know people and places, and do your own thing.
There are a bunch of metal bands, maybe not so many which play Death Metal, but a few notable ones. The black metal scene is going pretty strong lately as well, especially if you consider Chambéry (45mins away, in Savoie) as well. The scene in Grenoble is good, however it can be a little self centered at times, so we're also trying to get exposure outside of it.

France is a very tolerant country, where there is a lot of immigrants. In our country there is a lot of discussion about the various consequences of the influx of Muslims into Europe. Could you tell us what is your opinion on that?

I think that tolerant is maybe a bit of a strong word given some recent developments but I suppose we’re not doing too badly. To be honest as a band we feel no interest in bearing a political message or vision, our music aims for a more introspective or even philosophical scope. What is often seen as “issues” stem from social disparities, cultural differences... people have a very large tendency to make over-simplifications, sometimes scary ones and it invariably ends in hate channeling more hate and so on. I’ll leave it at that.

Are the French people pay attention on that what is happening in Eastern Europe? Are the typical French pay attention on the condition of the distant countries of the European Union as mine and how is their opinion about that and functioning stereotypes?

To be perfectly honest I think that in times of economic crisis like this people become very much self-centered. You see things from afar in the media, for instance the situation in Ukraine, but very few people (myself included I have to admit) go the extra mile to build their own understanding and find out more than what we are fed on a daily basis, which is more often than not quite biased.

How does 2015 look for Barus?
The end of the year is looking great for us. All being well we should have a physical release for the EP, we have some great gigs coming up, including one with Temple Of Baal and Malmort. Our first full length is in the works, the writing and demo recordings are almost finished so we should be getting into the actual album recording sometime around November or December.

Anything you'd like to add to conclude this interview?

Thanks for proposing this interview and giving us some exposure in Poland! I hope we can come over and play there sometime in the future. For anyone interested in our work, head over to : https://barus.bandcamp.com, our EP is available for download/purchase (name your price), keep an eye out for a physical release sometime late this year!

Wywiady
Barus [tajemnica przyjaciółką wiedzy]

Co prawda członkowie Barus twierdzą, że wykonują death metal, ale nie jest to do końca pełna prawda. Ich twórczość zawiera bowiem sporą ilość elementów progresywnych. Muzycy tego francuskiego zespołu czerpią garściami z nowoczesnych odmian metalu, ale robią to z niebywałym smakiem, wciąż pozostając na klasycznym fundamencie. Ich debiutancka EPka, którą wyszperałem w sieci bardzo przypadła mi do gustu i zasługuje na szerszą promocję, więc zdecydowałem się na przeprowadzenie z nimi wywiadu.

Cześć, lajtowe pytanie na początek- jaka była największa przygoda Twojego życia?

To trudne pytanie! Zakładam, że chodzi o sprawy zespołowe, a nie osobiste, co sprawia, że odpowiedź na nie jest trochę trudne, ponieważ Barus istnieje dopiero od marca tego roku (cóż, chodziło mi bardziej personalne podejście do tematu, ale nic to – przyp. Kwiecio). Cały proces tworzenia razem zespołu, definiowania celów i nagrywanie naszej pierwszej EP było niesamowitą przygodą… Pewnie będziemy mieli jakieś bardziej przekonujące historie do opowiedzenia, jak tylko zespół pójdzie do przodu.

Jak wspomniałeś, wydaliście ostatnio swoją debiutancką EP. Jakie są ogólne reakcje na ten materiał do tej pory? Czy pod kątem produkcji udało się Wam osiągnąć to, co sobie założyliście?

Odzew jest jak dotąd świetny, otrzymaliśmy bardzo pozytywne opinie do tej pory. Materiał jest dostępny tylko w formie cyfrowej w tej chwili; pracujemy nad wydaniem CD gdzieś pod koniec 2015 roku. Odnośnie nagrań i miksów, wszystko udało nam się zrobić własnymi rękami. Pomimo tego, że musieliśmy zrobić wszystko na własną rękę i przy bardzo ograniczonym budżecie, myślę że końcowy rezultat brzmieniowy ma swoją specyfikę i estetykę, do której dążyliśmy. Więc tak, mam wrażenie, że dotarliśmy do produkcji, jaką chcieliśmy uzyskać, choć będziemy doskonalili nasze brzmienie na przyszłych wydaniach zespołu.

Wasza muzyka jest czasem mocno pokręcona, z dużą ilością zakrętów. Jak wygląda u Was tworzenie kawałków od podstaw? Robicie je w domu czy raczej na próbach?


Przez proces twórczy przechodzimy dość naturalnie. Jeden z nas rozpoczyna od nagrań demo niektórych elementów w domu, czy to kilku riffów czy kompletnego utworu. Znaczna część procesu pisania zaczyna się zwykle od prostego pomysłu. Wtedy ciągniemy ten wątek i sprawdzamy dokąd nas prowadzi, starając się pozostać bezstronnymi elementami zewnętrznymi. Gdy dojdzie do punktu, w którym już nie słyszy się już serii riffów, ale czuje emocje, pewną atmosferę…, to zwykle oznacza, że wychodzi kawałek.Kiedy wersje demo są napisane, gramy je razem i zwykle dostosowujemy rzeczy tu i tam. Z drugiej strony teksty i wokale są prawie wyłącznie napisane i wymyślane przez Keithana, naszego wokalistę. On spędza trochę czasu, aby zanurzyć się w muzykę, a następnie proponuje tematykę tekstów i ułożenie wokali.

Zdefiniowaliście swoją muzykę na facebooku jako death metal, ale nie wiem czy to odpowiednie określenie. Mieszacie bowiem różne gatunki. Słychać tam zarówno black metal, post-metal, a nawet djent i inne style – czy taka mieszanka odzwierciedla Wasze gusta?

Myślę, że death metal pozostaje kotwicą naszej muzyki, ale na pewno czerpiemy z wielu gatunków. Tematy i uczucia wyrażone w naszej muzyce można przekazać za pomocą wielu form metalu, a nawet różnych stylów muzycznych. My na pewno jesteśmy bardziej zainteresowani odkrywaniem pewnych nastrojów, a nie kwalifikowaniem się do danego gatunku, i to odzwierciedla nasze osobiste upodobania muzyczne, ale i podejście do życia. Nasza muzyka ma być potężna, ponura, agresywna, mroczna, czasem obrzydzająca, a to cechy głównie reprezentowane przez Death Metal. Więc nawet jeśli, na przykład, można u nas znaleźć bardziej rytmiczną partię w stylu djent (czy analogicznie metalu eksperymentalnego jak go nazywano, zanim to wszystko poszło z górki – nie jestem fanem nowoczesnego „djentu”) to zawsze integruje się to z estetyką, podobieństwami i wpływami sceny starego death metalu.

Może teraz pogadamy o ogólnym sensie okładki Waszej EP? Kto jest jej autorem i czy jej wymowa w jakiś sposób współgra z tekstami?

Okładka ma mocne przełożenie w odniesieniu do tego, co wyrażamy w naszej muzyce. Aby być bardziej precyzyjnym, Keithan ma pomysły na grafiki związane z kawałkami już na etapie ich pisania. Grafika jest wynikiem tego procesu: jest to coś symbolicznego, trudnego do ujęcia, wspaniałego i przerażającego jednocześnie. Obraz został wykonany przez Aleksandra Browna, którego poprosiliśmy o stworzenie tej ikonicznej struktury wedle jego własnej wrażliwości artystycznej.

Lirycznie jakich tematów zazwyczaj dotykacie?

Teksty przeważnie dotyczą introspekcji i odnoszą się do pytań egzystencjalnych. Sposób pisania Keithana w sposób abstrakcyjny dotyka tematów zmagań emocjonalnych, uczucia śmierci, zwątpienia i sposobu, w jaki te rzeczy definiują nas jako indywidualne osoby. Ale przede wszystkim, teksty składają się z konstrukcji narracyjnej, która łączy wszystkie kawałki razem. Zarówno przyziemna, jak i ezoteryczna aura mieszane są ze sobą, by w konsekwencji stworzyć coś tajemniczego. Moglibyśmy przejść do bardziej szczegółowego omówienia, ale wolimy nie zdradzać zbyt wiele. Tajemnica jest przyjaciółką wiedzy, w przeciwieństwie do tego, w co zazwyczaj ludzie są skłonni wierzyć.

Będąc częścią francuskiej sceny, jaki macie pogląd na jej temat? Czy polecilibyście jakieś zespoły, na które ludzie szczególnie powinni zwrócić uwagę?

W ciągu ostatnich kilku lat pojawiło się sporo ciekawych zespołów pochodzących z Francji, zwłaszcza w ekstremalnym metalu, czasami z niezwykłym i awangardowym podejściem. Myślę, że w ciągu ostatnich kilku lat nagrania zespołów w stylu Deathspell Omega mają wpływ na sporą liczbę ludzi, a także zwraca to uwagę na nowe rzeczy wychodzące we Francji. Wydaje mi się, że scena francuska jest taka sama jak wszędzie. Sporo jest tu rzeczy średnich czy bezbarwnych, ale kiedy się głębiej poszuka można znaleźć wiele ukrytych skarbów, czasem zupełnie nieznanych ogółowi społeczeństwa. Jeśli chodzi o zespoły, wiele dobrych rzeczy wychodzi z podziemnej francuskiej wytwórni „Les de l’Ombre Acteurs”, The Great Old Ones na przykład.

Jak ocenicie występy, które macie do tej pory na koncie?

Zagraliśmy na razie tylko jeden koncert pod nazwą Barus, kiedy oficjalnie pokazaliśmy się, gdy zespół wydał EP w marcu. Koncert był świetny i jesteśmy gotowi do regularnego grania w przyszłości.

Poza Barus, gracie jeszcze w jakichś innych zespołach? Albo graliście wcześniej przed Barus?

Większość z nas gra w kilku innych zespołach. Dwóch z nas gra w black metalowym Maieutiste, którego pierwszy album ukaże się za pośrednictwem Les de L’Ombre Acteurs we wrześniu tego roku. Marco, nasz gitarzysta gra również w brutal death metalowym The Walking Dead Orchestra, a Keithan gra również w black metalowym Cainan Dawn. Większość z nas ma też kilka projektów osadzonych gatunkowo poza metalem, od grunge do ambientowej muzyki elektronicznej.

Pochodzicie z Grenoble, średniej miejscowości położonej w Alpach. Czy w tym mieście są jeszcze jakieś inne zespoły poza wami? Jaka jest kondycja lokalnej sceny?

Tak, to raczej średniej wielkości miasto, jest dość dynamiczne, ale czujemy się w nim komfortowo. Istnieje kilka metalowych kapel, może nie ma wiele grających death metal, ale jest ich kilka. Black metalowa scena jest dość silna ostatnio, jak również, zwłaszcza gdy weźmiemy pod uwagę Chambéry (45 minut stąd, w Sabaudii). Scena w Grenoble jest dobra, ale jest trochę za bardzo skupiona na sobie, więc my również staramy się to zmieniać pokazując, co tworzymy bardziej na zewnątrz.

Francja jest krajem bardzo tolerancyjnym wobec imigrantów. W moim kraju toczy się od dłuższego czasu dyskusja na temat konsekwencji coraz większego napływu muzułmanów do Europy. Czy możesz powiedzieć, jakie jest Twoje zdanie na ten temat?

Myślę, że tolerancyjny to trochę zbyt mocne słowo zważywszy na niektóre niedawne wydarzenia tutaj, ale wydaje mi się, że nie robimy źle. Szczerze mówiąc jako zespół nie czujemy żadnego interesu w niesieniu przesłania politycznego, nasza muzyka bardziej skupia się na introspekcji, a nawet sprawach filozoficznych. To, na co najczęściej się w naszym kraju zwraca uwagę wynika z różnic społecznych, różnic kulturowych… Ludzie mają bardzo dużą skłonność do uproszczeń, czasem jest to przerażające i zawsze kończy się nienawiścią, która narasta.

Czy Francuzi zwracają uwagę na to, co dzieje się w Europie Wschodniej? Czy zwykłych mieszkańców Twojego kraju interesuje sytuacja odległych w stosunku do Was krajów Unii Europejskiej takich jak mój? Jaka jest ogólna opinia na ich temat i funkcjonujące stereotypy?

Szczerze mówiąc, myślę że w czasach kryzysu gospodarczego ludzie stają się bardzo egocentryczni. Widzi się te wszystkie rzeczy z daleka, w mediach, na przykład sytuację na Ukrainie, ale bardzo niewiele osób (w tym także ja, muszę przyznać) podejmuje starania, aby zbudować własną wiedzę i dowiedzieć się więcej na ten temat niż to, co mamy podawane na co dzień, mimo że bardzo często jest to skrajnie tendencyjne.

Jak dla Barus wygląda rok 2015?

Wygląda na to, że koniec roku 2015 będzie dla nas świetny. Jeśli wszystko pójdzie jak należy, powinniśmy mieć fizyczną wersję EP, zapowiada się kilka świetnych koncertów, w tym jeden z Temple Of Baal i Malmort. Nasz pierwszy pełny album już się robi, nagrania demo są w realizacji i już prawie skończone, więc powinniśmy niedługo zająć się nagrywaniem albumu, myślę że będzie to miało miejsce w okolicach listopada lub grudnia.

Dziękuję za wywiad- czy chciałbyś coś dodać na jego zakończenie?

Dzięki za ten wywiad i możliwość zaprezentowania naszego zespołu w Polsce! Mam nadzieję, że będziemy mieli okazję przyjechać i zagrać tam kiedyś w przyszłości. Dla wszystkich zainteresowanych naszą muzyką, zapraszamy pod adres: https://barus.bandcamp.com, gdzie nasza EP jest dostępna do pobrania lub zakupu (za dowolną cenę), spodziewajcie się na fizycznego wydania gdzieś pod koniec tego roku!

Hi, first question is: what has been the greatest adventure of your life?

That’s a tough first question! I’ll assume it is band related and not personal, which makes the answer a little tricky since Barús has only existed officially since March this year. The whole process of getting the band together, defining goals and recording our first EP has been an awesome adventure… we should have some more compelling stories to tell as the band continues to move forward.

How have the general reactions to the debut EP been so far? Do you think you got the production you were looking for?

Response so far has been great. We have had very positive reviews for the EP so far. It is only available in digital format at the moment; we're working on a CD release somewhere near the end of 2015. Concerning the production - we recorded and mixed the whole thing ourselves. Despite having to do everything on our own time and with a very limited budget, I think that the final sound has a certain charisma to it and does justice to the songs and the aesthetic that we were aiming for. So yes, I feel that we reached the production we wanted, even though we will be able to perfect our sound for the band's future releases.

Your music is sometimes hard tangled and twisted. What about the process of creating songs? Do you write in the practice room or at home?

The creative process we go through is fairly natural. In general one of us starts by recording some demo elements at home, whether it's a couple of riffs or a complete song. Much of the writing process is basically starting from a simple idea, pulling that thread and seeing where it leads, while trying to remain unbiased by external elements and just letting things happen. When it gets to the point where you are no longer hearing a series of riffs but feeling an emotion, a certain atmosphere… that usually means that the song is going somewhere.

Once these demo versions are built we play them together and usually tweak things here and there. The lyrics and vocals on the other hand are almost exclusively written and thought out by Keithan, our vocalist. He takes some time to let the music soak in, and then proposes the lyrical content and vocal placement.

You define your music as death metal, but I don't know it's appropriate for you because you mix many different genres together, I hear some black metal, post-metal, even djent in there and also other styles - does this reflect your personal taste?

I think that death metal remains the anchor of our music, but we definitely draw from many genres. The theme and feelings expressed in our music can be conveyed through many forms of metal or even different musical styles altogether. We're definitely more interested in exploring certain moods rather than qualifying to one genre in particular, and that reflects our personal tastes in music and life in general.

Our music aims to be powerful, grim, aggressive, murky, sometimes nauseating, which we feel is mostly represented by death metal. So even if, for instance, you find some rhythmic work more akin to djent (or experimental metal as it was called before it all went downhill – I’m not a fan of modern "djent") it always integrates into this raw aesthetic, with similarities and influences from the old school death scene.

What is the meaning of the cover of your EP? Who is the author and does that harmonize with the lyrics?

The cover has a strong meaning in regards to what we express in our music. To be more precise, Keithan generally forms mental images associated to the songs during the writing phase. The artwork is a result of this process: it represents something symbolic, difficult to apprehend, magnificent and terrifying at the same time. It was made by Alexander Brown, who we asked to represent this iconic structure with his own artistic sensibility; we wanted the pillar to seem as if it could fall at any time.

What kind of subjects do you write about?

The lyrics are mostly introspective and relate to existential questions. Keithan’s writing deals in an abstract manner about emotional struggles, the sensation of death, self-doubt, and the way these things define us as individuals. But most of all, the lyrics are composed with a narrative structure that ties the songs together. Secular and esoteric auras are mixed together to bring forth something mysterious.

We could go into more detail, but we prefer not to tell too much. Mystery is the friend of knowledge, contrary to what we are usually led to believe.

Being a part of the French scene how do you see it? Are there any upcoming bands that people should look out for?

In the last few years there have been quite a few interesting bands coming out of France, especially in extreme metal, sometimes with an unusual and avant-garde approach. I think the last few records of bands such as Deathspell Omega influenced quite a few people and also put a bit of a spotlight on this kind of thing coming out of France.

I think the French scene is probably the same as everywhere. Quite a lot of average or bland stuff but when you dig a little you’ll find many hidden treasures, sometimes completely unknown to the general public. As for bands, a lot of good stuff is coming out of the French underground label "Les Acteurs de l'Ombre", The Great Old Ones for instance.

How do you look back on the shows you did so far?

We've actually only done one show under the name Barús, as we officially "unveiled" the band when we released the EP in March. The show was great though, and we are getting ready to play a bunch more this coming fall.

Besides Barús, are you currently in other bands? Or you played before your current band?

Most of us play in several bands. Two of us play in Maïeutiste, a black metal band, whose first album will be released via Les Acteurs de L'Ombre this September. Marco, our guitarist also plays in a brutal death band, The Walking Dead Orchestra, and Keithan also plays in the black metal band Caïnan Dawn. Other than these most of us also have some projects outside of metal, ranging from grunge to ambient electronic music.

You live in Grenoble close to the Alps. It is rather a medium-sized town, right? Are there any other bands there? What is the condition of the local scene?

Yes it's a pretty mid-size town, it's quite dynamic but still feels comfortable, it's a human scale where you can get to know people and places, and do your own thing.

There are a bunch of metal bands, maybe not so many which play death metal, but a few notable ones. The black metal scene is going pretty strong lately as well, especially if you consider Chambéry (45mins away, in Savoie) as well. The scene in Grenoble is good, however it can be a little self centered at times, so we're also trying to get exposure outside of it.

France is a very tolerant country, where there is a lot of immigrants. In our country there is a lot of discussion about the various consequences of the influx of Muslims into Europe. Could you tell us what is your opinion on that?

I think that tolerant is maybe a bit of a strong word given some recent developments but I suppose we’re not doing too badly. To be honest as a band we feel no interest in bearing a political message or vision, our music aims for a more introspective or even philosophical scope. What is often seen as "issues" stem from social disparities, cultural differences... people have a very large tendency to make over-simplifications, sometimes scary ones and it invariably ends in hate channeling more hate and so on. I’ll leave it at that.

Do French people pay attention on what is happening in Eastern Europe Are and the condition of the distant countries of the European Union and what is their opinion about that and functioning stereotypes?

To be perfectly honest I think that in times of economic crisis like this people become very much self-centered. You see things from afar in the media, for instance the situation in Ukraine, but very few people (myself included I have to admit) go the extra mile to build their own understanding and find out more than what we are fed on a daily basis, which is more often than not quite biased.

How does 2015 look for Barus?

The end of the year is looking great for us. All being well we should have a physical release for the EP, we have some great gigs coming up, including one with Temple Of Baal and Malmort. Our first full length is in the works, the writing and demo recordings are almost finished so we should be getting into the actual album recording sometime around November or December.

Anything you'd like to add to conclude this interview?

Thanks for proposing this interview and giving us some exposure! For anyone interested in our work, head over to: https://barus.bandcamp.com, our EP is available for download/purchase (name your price), keep an eye out for a physical release sometime late this year!

Originally released independently through Bandcamp in March 2015, the debut EP from French progressive death metal band Barús found its physical release through Emanations, a sub-label of Les Acteurs De L’Ombre Productions. Very heavy, very dense and very intense, the EP draws on black, death, prog, doom and post metal and is laced with plenty of hooks, heaps of deep grooves and an abundance of dynamic and textural shifts. Here, guitarist J. talks to MR’s Jason Guest about the band and its origins, the EP and its creation, writing in French and English, and the universality of music…

Thank you very much for taking time out for this interview and congratulations on the EP (reviewed here). It’s an impressive piece of work.

James (guitar): Hi Jason, thanks for reviewing our EP and thanks for giving us the opportunity to do this interview with Midlands Rocks.

Barús was formed out of Project JIM. What prompted the demise of that band and the birth of Barús?

J: There have been a couple of line-up changes since then but yes, the core members of Barús played together in Project JIM beforehand, a band that we started quite young. The band went on standby for a couple of years, and we got back to working together on new material in late 2013. Our focus had progressively shifted over time towards a new direction, something darker, more atmospheric and quite a departure from what we had done in the past. So we decided to wipe the slate clean and start completely fresh. We don’t see Barús as a continuation of Project JIM, they are separate entities, and we don’t play any of our old material.

For you, how do the two bands differ?

Project JIM was more of a modern experimental death metal band, sometimes verging on the edge of technical death metal, heavily influenced by bands like Meshuggah, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Blotted Science and such, whereas in Barús the aim is to create a murky and oppressive music, something authentic with a strong personal meaning for us. Barús is a lot stricter in the sense that we try to convey a deeper message and are wary not to fall into the superficiality that we personally feel in a lot of the progressive/technical metal or djent scenes. Barús’ music may still be technical, but only if it serves a meaningful musical purpose.

Where’s the band name Barús originate from? Does it have a specific meaning or significance for the band and its music?

The word ‘Barús’ comes from ancient Greek. It translates weight in both a literal sense, something that is heavy, monolithic and imposing, and in a metaphorical sense, such as a mental burden, or grief, which is a central theme in our music both lyrically and musically.

Barus LogoThough your sound takes in a lot more than this one genre, you describe your music as death metal. Why so?

I would say that Death Metal remains the core component of our sound, especially in terms of creating a menacing and morbid atmosphere. But we definitely draw on many other styles, from black metal to sludge to progressive/experimental metal. We prefer to say simply “this is our take on death metal” and let people figure out for themselves what our music evokes rather than over-classifying our music into a niche that we don’t necessary feel that we fit into.

So, on to your debut EP. What did you want to achieve with it?

Our aim was simply to create something authentic and personal. No one was expecting us or even knew that we were creating Barús, so it was really just a question of setting our own standards in terms of musicality, atmosphere and sound, and making sure that a personal identity emerged through the process.

Did you have an idea of how you wanted the EP to sound or did each of the tracks and the whole thing take shape as it was being developed?

We had fairly clear ideas in terms of the general aesthetics that we wanted for the band: something heavy, oppressive, suffocating at times, dark and hypnotic. The songs themselves evolved quite naturally during the writing and recording process. We knew what we were aiming for but allowed ourselves to experiment and see what came out from it.

How long were you working on the material?

We spent about 6 months writing and rehearsing the songs, then probably another 6 to record and produce the EP. Then a small extra time to prepare everything for the digital release (artwork, etc.), so I’d say the EP took us a little over a year, from start to finish.

Can you tell us about the lyrical themes on the EP? And where did you take inspiration from?

The lyrics are mostly introspective and relate to existential questions. Our vocalist Keithan deals in an abstract manner about emotional struggles, the sensation of death, self-doubt, and the way these things define us as individuals. But most of all, the lyrics are composed with a narrative structure that ties the songs together. We find inspiration through our experiences as individuals and also in various forms of art, such as film and literature.

3 of the 4 tracks are in English. Why choose to write in English? And why French for ‘Cherub’?


That is mainly Keithan’s choice and is usually dependant on what he feels works best in tying the lyrics and music together. Both languages have specific qualities – I find that English is a more dynamic, allowing to describe things precisely and efficiently, whereas we use French to emphasise certain specific phrases or lines.



The artwork is very impressive. Can you tell us about the artwork and how it relates to the music?


Thanks. Yes, the cover bears a strong meaning in regards to what we express in our music. During the writing process Keithan progressively formed a mental image of this towering pillar, set against an arid and tumultuous background. Its origin is mysterious: it is imposing, immutable and beyond human comprehension, something that we are drawn to, but at the same there is a menacing aura to it, as if it could come crashing down, leading us to an inevitable demise. This notion of an irrepressible malignant force within each of us, which we seldom control and which conditions our very existence, is very present in our music.

Alexander Brown is the artist. Why choose to work with him? And how much direction was given its design?


We’re big fans of Alexander Brown’s work, with bands like Bölzer, Mournful Congregation or StarGazer to name a few. When we got to thinking about artworks for the EP his name popped up quickly, so we decided to contact him and ask if he was interested. We had a conceptual design in mind for the Pillar artwork; we gave him directions in terms of our intent rather than actual graphical cues. On the other hand, the ‘Disillusions’ artwork of the meditating figure is something Alexander created on his own, after listening to our music and getting to know the themes that were developed.

How did you come to work with Emanations for the release of the EP? And do you plan to stay with them for future releases?

We actually got to know the guys behind Emanations and Les Acteurs de l’Ombre when Maïeutiste – a black metal band that Keithan and I play in – got signed in early 2015. They are great people, very committed to the music and the physical releases they put out, so we contacted them soon after we released our EP in digital format. They’ve done a great job on the Digipack version, which was released on January 29th 2016. We can’t say for sure at this moment if we will work with them on next releases, as the label does primarily focus on various forms of black metal, so we are a bit of an exception in that respect.

How does the band approach composition? Is it lyrics first, or the music or a melody perhaps?

Generally we create the music first, then once it stabilises Keithan starts to work on the lyrics and vocals. The creative process is very natural really, it usually starts by demo recording a few riffs at home, starting from a simple idea, and just pulling the thread from there and letting things go wherever they take you.

One thing we are extremely severe about is the atmosphere and emotion that we feel when making our own music: I’ve never been a fan of the “just string a bunch of riffs together and see” way of composing, I only keep material that actually evokes something strong for me personally, something that I can actually immerse and lose myself in. I’m convinced that making music that bears a strong emotional meaning for the composer has a better chance of triggering a strong reaction (although probably not the same one) in a listener. Once we have a complete backbone of the songs we play them together and tweak things here and there.

What does the act of making music mean to Barús?

It’s something that we do compulsively, and that we would do whether the band existed or not. Generally speaking, we’re big music enthusiasts and find inspiration in all kinds of music. Most of us have several other bands beside Barús and completely outside of metal (rock, darkwave, ambient electronic music – hell, even Hip Hop haha).

People often emphasise on the quantity of bad music that we’re exposed to now in the media and on the web, but I find that there has never been a time where so much good music and art is accessible to us if only we look for it. There is so much to discover, to be inspired by… it’s almost mind-boggling.

Music gives a certain universality to creations that stem from a very personal expression, and that’s what I love about it. Writing for Barús is something very personal and emotionally involved for me, and it’s fantastic to see that people from all over respond to it and find their own personal meaning to it.

Any plans for shows in support of the EP? And will we be seeing you in the UK?

We have a couple of shows coming up in the next week or so with Déluge and Maïeutiste (also bands from Les Acteurs de l’Ombre), we’re all looking forward to that. It would be great to play in the UK, we’ve been looking into it for a while, but it’s not always easy to get all our schedules aligned up, since we have lots of different projects. If not this year, then in 2017!

What would be the ideal setting for a Barús performance?

We’re not too picky but the most important thing is that it allows us to convey a certain atmosphere to make the show an actual experience. I don’t mean to say that we need theatrics or big equipment to make it work, but we want our live shows to reflect our music: to plunge the audience into a dark, oppressive atmosphere, something hypnotising and a little disturbing. We want to get inside people’s heads for 45 minutes.

What does the future hold for Barús? An album perhaps?

Yes, we’ve been working on our debut album for a while now. The songs are written and recorded in demo versions, so the next step is recording the actual thing. We’ll be producing most of it ourselves, as we did for the EP. The recording should take place this spring and summer, so hopefully the album should be finished mid-to-late autumn.

Thanks again for taking time out for this interview. Do you have any closing words for our readers?

Thanks for interviewing us and keep up the great work with the webzine. For anyone interested, our EP is available in CD format through LADLO and our bandcamp, and it is also still available digitally for free on our bandcamp page.
