Lock down in Melbourne rolls on, and on, and on... Due to the ongoing issues lockdown is causing, and the continued uncertainty around when venues will be open, we have been forced to postpone the viceo clips launch until February 5th 2022.
After a sluggish year of COVID-19 we are proud to say we are back bigger and better than ever. We successfully completed an all-ages Matinee performance at The Workers Club where we gave the children a lesson in rock that can only be presented by half naked men in their 40's! Keep an eye out for upcoming shows, we will have plenty to announce.
The COVID-19 pandemic lock down in Melbourne wasn’t a complete waste of time. As annoying as it was for such mighty warriors as ourselves to be locked up for all that time unable to pillage and plunder, we did manage to work out how to use this interweb thing a little bit better. After many hours of grunting at the computer box we managed to make ourselves a new website! Not bad for a bunch of cave dwelling luddites eh? AAAAARRRRGGGGHHHH!!!! ....

Barbarion is a heavy metal band from Melbourne, Australia. The 7 members came together in 2007 and started performing
Since then, Barbarion’s extraordinary stage shows and catchy songs have been steadily winning over Australian audiences. Barbarion always delivers a highly entertaining and theatrical performance. The shows incorporate fire, smoke, skulls, weapons and other battle/heavy metal themed props. On top of this, each member brings to the stage their own barbaric identity, inspired by barbarians from various times and places - leather, flesh, fur, war paint, helmets,drinking horns – it’s all there and the resulting spectacle is not soon forgotten. The band consists of a larger than life frontman, three hairy guitarists, bass and drums. The music appeals to metal and non-metal fans alike. It is entertaining and uplifting and draws from traditional champions of metal and hard rock such as Iron Maiden, Manowar, Megadeth, Accept and AC/DC.
In 2014 the band was reduced to 6 members when 'larger than life' front man Frankie Gionfriddo left the band. This, along with the consistent addition of progeny
to the majority of the remaining members slowed progress down in the latter part of the 2010's,however, in 2020 recording started on their new album
and they put the finishing touches on their brand new film clip for "There wil be fire". A tour of Japan was planned for October 2020, however, due to that pesky Coronavirus
the it will have to wait until 2021.
Notable moments in Barbarion’s recent history include: playing the Big Day Out Australian tour, Meredith Music Festival and Boogie Music Festival (all 2011), supporting international touring bands Alestorm (2013), Andrew WK (2011), Pulled Apart By Horses (2011) and Jeff the Brotherhood (2010); the release of their debut music video, 'My Rock' (2011), appearing on the Australian music trivia show 'Spics and Specs (2012 & 2014), releasing their most comprehensive album to date ‘Ram The World’ (2013) and completing their first successful tour of Europe (2013). Barbarion have played many successful club show in Australia and have built a reputation for entertaining, participative performances. You certainly won’t forget the first time you saw Barabrion.
