Barbarossa band founded in March 2014 by Lorenzo and Davy, at guitars. 
After meeting in a pub they decided to give birth to a new musical project.
They started to work with hate and love (musically talking), while Lorenzo was Death metal sound-oriented Davy came from a Thrash Metal background and they both wanted to impose their will. 
After some weeks of insults, came the discovery of the concept of diplomacy and they started to go in the right way. They decided to create something based on ferocity, obscurity and melody….something modern but still with solid roots planted in the tradition of death and thrash metal. 
Something technical but that anyway puts the focus on spontaneity of the songwriting.

After some time Cristiano took place behind the drum heads, giving shape and power to Davy’s still unripe riffs, while in the meantime Lorenzo was given the task to make the walls tremble with growl vocals and to dash off the first lyrics.
To complete the line-up, arrived Alex on Bass guitar. He has a really well kept beard, worked out fingers and a growl as deep as an oceanic trench, so how could him not being in?
Barbarossa’s live debut arrived in December 2014 at Britannia pub in Vedelago, with a baptism of fire over expectations and a wide appreciation by the crowd witch pushed the band to carry on the project and to ask the best from herself.
So went on with satisfaction live activity In Northern Italy with some live gigs in Veneto and Emilia Romagna.
Today Barbarossa entering in the underground metal scene with their first ep: Operation Barbarossa, the fruit of long session of composition, whole nights playing and to conceive a lot of songs that they can collect the positive opinion of the worldwide metal kids ...Barbarossa is ready!!
