The debut album “Invisible” from the Hamburg based band BARRELS is now up for pre-order at our webstore. The band‘s passion for different kinds of independent rock music made them create their own mixture of Helmet-like grooves, Quicksand-ish chords, Texas-is-Reason-influenced harmonies, always aiming for the right balance between rough sounding energy and harmonic flows. The results have been put to stage opening up for a variety of differently sounding independent bands such as The Appleseed Cast, Karma To Burn, Pilot to Gunner, Quicksand and The Riverboat Gamblers – and all of these combinations actually turned out to work very well. In May 2015, it was time to push the recording button at Tonmeisterei in Oldenburg. Among the long list of German bands that recorded their albums at this studio are Marathonmann, Escapado, Omega Massif, and Long Distance Calling. 12 songs have been recorded with the help of the fantastic Roland “Role” Wiegner. Dan Coutant mastered the album at Sun Room Audio Studio in Cornwall, New York. Dan is well-known for his work with bands such as Clutch, Jawbox, Coliseum, and The Sword, but also for having been the singer and guitarist of the band Joshua.
