1- Hello, thanks for answering to our questions. What are you guys currently up to?

We are gigging as much as possible, getting pumped about the release of our first full-length album and writing new songs.

2- First off, could you make some history of the band?

We formed in 2010 as an instrumental three piece called Atlatl. The original intent was to start a fusion band and play gigs on the weekend to make some extra cash. As you can imagine, that never happened. We started writing heavier material than originally intended and after a couple of years as an instrumental trio we decided to add a vocalist to the mix. His style really required us to change how we approached writing and expanded our musical vocabulary. This was the beginning of Barishi.


3- How could you describe your sound?

We are a heavy band trying to write pretty melodies and play with sounds that aren’t always in heavy music. I think our sound has been evolving from the beginning and it’s very important to us that it doesn’t stagnate. We are influenced by a lot of bands who explore new territory both beautiful and aggressive, we strive to reach a balance that is sonically pleasing and provocative.


4- What are the band’s main musical influences?

We collectively like a wide range of music. We love bands like Mastodon and Opeth, as well as stuff like My Bloody Valentine and the Cure. But pretty much anything we listen to has a significant impact on us.


5- How is the feedback for your new album being?

So far the feedback has been positive! After pouring so much energy and time into this project, it’s extraordinarily encouraging to find that our work is really resonating with some people. I think we are all very proud that we were able to finish this after such a long process and that in and of it’s self is pretty rewarding.


6- And are your personally satisfied with the final outcome?

Absolutely! It was a long time in the making and to have this finished piece of work is extremely rewarding. There are definitely some elements in our band that

have changed since we started recording it. For example, we recorded the album in e-standard tuning and we now play in c-standard, which changes a lot in our sound. But all in all I think the album is a good representation of us.


7- How could you describe this opus in just 3 words?

Psychedelic mountain metal


8- How has the production process for your new release been?

It was actually a blast! recording with Brian Westbrook at PDP productions was a pleasure. The sessions were very laid back, professional and all under the watchful eye of Brian’s incredibly slobbery cat. Brian is a really great guy and amazingly talented, both as a musician and producer.


9- And how do you use to work on the songwriting?

Usually our guitar player, Graham, comes in with a riff. After getting that down we focus on where the song is going and write more parts. Once those are solid, we work on arrangements and the more subtle elements of the composition. That’s about it, at the end of the process if we like the song it stays. If we are not digging it then it’s never heard again.


10 – Finally, what are you near-future plans?

Hopefully we will be able to set up a tour in support of the new album. Playing as much as possible for people who like this style of music is really the goal. You gotta do what you love, and for us, this is it.


11- That’s all from our side, thanks again for taking your time to answer our questions. If you now want to add some final words; feel free to do it.

It has been my pleasure! Thank you. If you are interested check out some of our music. Send us a message! we would love to hear from you!
