“To Kill A Man”, a brand new song from the Swedish all-girl hard rock quartet CRUCIFIED BARBARA, can be streamed using the SoundCloud widget below. The track is taken from the band’s upcoming fourth studio album, “In The Red”, to be released on August 20 via Despotz Records.
“We and many of us feel a huge impotence and rage when we hear and read about men who systematically abuse and rape women,” commented the band. “This type of crime is something that happens every day, everywhere.
“Of anger, we create music. Heavy substances and harsh riffs became the song ‘To Kill A Man’, a really heavy song in a double sense.”
CRUCIFIED BARBARA is putting the finishing touches on “In The Red”, which was recorded at Music A Matic studio in Gothenburg with producer Chips Kiesby and engineer Henryk Lip, and is the follow-up to 2012’s “The Midnight Chase”.
Formed in Stockholm in 1998 by bassist Ida Evileye (now-wife of MESHUGGAH drummer Tomas Haake) and Force, CRUCIFIED BARBARA plays a fiery brand of rock ‘n’ roll tinged with metal and lashings of punk, pop, thrash, and whatever else dares to cross their path. Ida Evileye dominates her trusty Sandberg bass, Force rocks steady on her ’76 Gibson Explorer, Coldheart belts out her unapologetic vocals while riffing all over her Gibson Gothic Flying V, and Nicki Wicked pounds on her hot pink sparkle Yamaha Maple drum kit until you’re splayed across the floor with a bull’s-eye knock-out punch that’ll make you spit your teeth out. Now you know what happens when MOTÖRHEAD mates with THE RUNAWAYS.
