Formed in 2018 from a diverse and unified palette of musical backgrounds, Preppen Barium’s strength lies in four strong willed individuals, fortified as one unstoppable machine on the same mission. Writing killer songs, playing them around the world, and living life to the fullest is their primary focus.
Their music seamlessly stitches together both hard rock and heavy metal with aggressive vocals soaked in sincerity and unleashed from the soul. Killer riffs with emotion-inducing leads, thick bass lines, and murderous drum beats create music for your dark heart. Preppen Barium’s no holds barred approach to making music has everything to do with their attitude and the lifestyle they lead.
Based out of Charlotte, NC the band has been working on building a loyal, local following and spent 2019 playing well-received live shows and recording their original songs.
“We all just want to play the tunes we want to hear and that feel good to us. The kind we think are absent from the music scene out there” -Hazmatt (Lead Vocalist)
2020 started off strong with the independently released, self-titled debut album. Unfortunately, just as momentum was gaining, the great lockdown hit and everything came to a screeching halt. All gigs were cancelled, and the opportunity to take the new record out and perform it live was put on hold. Not ones to sit idle, the boys wrote & recorded their EP in anticipation of the world opening back up. Now that things are finally starting to get back to “normal”, Preppen Barium is wasting no time getting back out there. Playing shows, filling their calendar, and most importantly taking their music to the people.
