I like when I get the random emails from bands I have never heard of. Sometimes I’m a little hesitant in checking them out. Maybe I’m to comfortable with what I know and don’t want to see what’s out there. Most of the time I check them out as they took the time to let us know about them. Lately I’ve been getting a lot of those and there’s been a lot of good bands. One such band is Barbarian Overlords.
It’s really tough to nail a specific genre to them as they tread the line between hard rock, progressive rock, punk, blues and even a little country rock.

Californian rockers BARBARIAN OVERLORDS have revealed the track listing for their forthcoming self titled debut album.
Liner notes include:
BARBARIAN OVERLORDS are the sound of a late night train rolling through the deep South… The feel of the Californian sun at the break of the Ocean…The sound of a factory in Detroit…The feel of the full moon shining on the streets of London…An American Rock and Roll band with a deep and expansive sound, with no musical boundaries in sight…
The band was formed in Los Angeles, California during the spring of 2010… After Nuffer, soon to be singer, responded to an ad posted by drummer Brandon Kachel and guitarist Joe Spadaro in search of a Frontman. A new band was formed…They quickly got to work, and bonded both musically and as people. It wasn’t until February 2011 that the band would be complete. G.K. Via, more notably known for playing guitar, picked up the bass and joined the band as the official bass guitar player. From there they began to compose songs, of which would become the debut record, self titled BARBARIAN OVERLORDS…
