"“Take It Back,” our favorite track... blurs the line between metallic funk and vintage Cali beach punk that sounds similar to the erratic time signatures and frantic vocal spitting of classic Red Hot Chili Peppers. Think “Fight Like a Brave”-era Chili Peppers meshed with fIREHOSE"
"Raging Riffs. Face Melting Bass, & The Ability To Fuse Metal With Funk" -
“Boisterized is a definite escalation... showing a gutsier guitar sound and willingness to skate on the edge musically.”
“If you are a fan of savage music, this is for you. ”
"...you might literally dance your head off" "The Last Barbarians... melt your face while you slam to the funk."
"The Last Barbarians may just be the exception" "...the electrifying guitar work of DR and the mesmerizing slap-heavy hands of Walters"
"They immediately reminded me of the 80s hardcore scene where a band would take the intensity and energy, but do some oddball moves with a bit of funk or high-not bass playing" ~Thanks David Hintz!
“Don't mistake the Last Barbarians for a thrash band. While there's enough guitar shrapnel on Weekend Warrior to puncture gaping holes in your bedroom wall, the Last Barbarians are more versatile than that, concocting a stinging brew of heavy metal, punk, funk, grunge, prog, and even psychedelia…”
““The EP [Weekend Warrior] documents six killer Barbarian tracks… effortlessly transition[ing] between straight forward metal and solid grooves steeped in jazz and funk” - Ptah Gabrie, Poor Man’s Breakfast”
“These guys are awesome... with so many bands that sound alike these days, these guys stand out" "Rating: 4.8/5"- Jeff Karbow, SicZine”
