BARBARIAN HERMIT ANNOUNCE REISSUE OF ‘ONE’
RELEASED 29TH JANUARY – APF RECORDS
LISTEN TO NEW TRACK ’THROUGH THE PERISCOPE OF THE DEADLY SUB
Hailing from Manchester, UK, Barbarian Hermit released their most recent album ‘Solitude and Savagery’ in 2018 on APF Records. Playing a heady mix of down-tuned, fuzz-laden guitars they kicked out some of the raunchiest riffs in rock over elephantine grooves, the band created a sound that is as irresistibly catchy as it is crushingly heavy.
Working with the legendary Chris Fielding at Skyhammer Studios, Barbarian Hermit’s ‘Solitude and Savagery’ bared seven bruising tracks of pummeling groove metal that smoldered with swampy rawness and feral energy.
Following two UK tours, the band opened up Bloodstock Festival in 2019.
Now in 2021, the band is set to reissue their 2016 debut album ‘One’ on 29th January via APF Records. This version, remastered by Chris Fielding available on CD & digitally boasts an additional track, the previously unreleased, 9 minute, sludge-doom epic, ‘Through The Periscope of the Deadly Sub’.
Adam Robertshaw (guitars) comments:
“‘Through the Periscope of the Deadly Sub’ is one of the first songs we wrote and also one of the heaviest so it’s great that it’s finally getting the release it deserves. The song was inspired by a nuclear submarine and Chris Fielding has really captured that same devastating power and sense of claustrophobic dread on his remaster.”

‘One’ was the first release from the band to feature vocalist Simon Scarlett who left in 2017, only to rejoin in mid-2020 replacing Ed Campbell.
