Barbears – Doombar

Barbears – Doombar
Self released – 2012
Rock, Stoner, Metal
Rated: ****

We struggled through the crowd and found two seats at the bar. My buddy ordered two tall glasses of rums, with beer and tequila on the side. We sat there waiting for the inevitable when I suddenly noticed all the weird proceedings that were happening all around us. Right next to me a gigantic bear was gnawing on a woman’s neck and on the other side two strange looking bears were pounding their chest, roaring with laughter and madness in their eyes. I tried to warn my buddy by pulling his shirt and whispering. “We might have stumbled into the wrong doom stricken bar, these are all bears man, and they’re giving booze those these goddamned things. It won’t be long now, before they tear us to shreds…” And then the band starting playing; shredding their guitars and pounding their heavy rhythms, soothing the savage beasts and turning out hearts into loud throbbing engines of lust. They were called the Barbears and since their founding somewhere in Hungary in 2008 they had been the resident players of the Doombar. Striking chords in the hearts of the most reckless with their feral and ferocious mixture of stoner, metal and southern rock. Listening to their amazing tunes filled my head with joy and my guts with pride. Like a Man on the Move, and just sick enough to be totally confident…
