“For those of you who don’t know, BarrelBright uses a post apocalyptic Dustpunk theme, and they have been melting faces with an amazing rock show in five states, fifteen cities, and have sold albums in 8 countries. On their own, they own the stage, typically headlining shows featuring local and regional acts, and have opened for national touring bands such as Flaw, Halestorm, Adelitas Way, and Taproot to name a few. And that video in post production? It’s been released and it’s GLORIOUS. It’s edgy, in your face, thought-provoking warning of things going wrong in a future that doesn’t seem all that unlikely. And a beautiful example of effectively bringing a comic book to life in live action video. Keep an eye on BarrelBright. These guys are going somewhere, and when they get back to tell the rest of us about the dangers they faced in their world of dust and decay, it will be worth hearing.”
“Every single track on the album blew me away. There is a great variety of songs, from the brooding heavy riffs to the soaring vocal melodies to the inspiring acoustic instrumentals. The frontman, James Dean, has an instantly recognizable and powerful voice that will send chills down your spine, evoking emotion with every verse and every chorus. The guitars of Brad Heagler and Chuck Nusser are just awesome, especially the solos by Nusser, (which are reminscent of Tremonti and Kirk Hammitt). Geneva Arena's bass work and Nick Engle's drums provide a tight and poweful rhythm section that holds it all together. Its hard to pick stand-out tracks, because there are no fillers on this album, but my personal favourites are 'Used', 'Long Way', 'Tyler', and 'One Addiction'. If you are a fan of modern hard rock, you owe it to yourself to check this record out. Barrelbright offer something new and are a cut above the rest. Expect these guys to make big waves in the near future.”
“There are some awesome, extremely talented local bands here in town like Barrelbright, whose style falls under the mainstream rock sound. Although they do have a growing fan base, the people who would really be into this band aren’t paying attention at a local level, therefore missing out on a really great band - right here in their home town.”
