Barbarian Overlords / Press

“We don't get to hear much new bluesy, pounding rock & roll these days. Black Keys and Clutch are some of the few bands holding the torch from legends like Led Zeppelin and Deep Purple. Barbarian Overlords are worthy of being in that prestigious company. While Barbarian Overlords first album is relatively short, the band shows their chops early and often. You'll find meaty hooks, sweet melodies, passionate vocals and slamming percussion. Guitarist Joe Spadaro has some serious skills. Singer Brent Nuffer evokes Eddie Vedder at times, but more playful. Code of the West is my favorite song -- one where it's impossible not to nod your head and smile. The album was amazingly all self-funded and self-published, but it's got all the production values of a major label release. I've seen these guys live a few times, and Barbarian Overlords deliver in spades. If you're a rock fan, check out these guys!”

"What a beautiful surprise!...One of the most rousing and full-heartedly pleasant début albums I've heard"

“There’s been a lot of good bands. One such band is Barbarian Overlords... They’re someone you should definitely check out. Their self titled debut is full of big sound and lots of energy.”
