[new music] BARRIERS - "Cancer"

© Kssael Productions
With a lot of bands emerging in this day and age, Barriers, a straight-up, in-your-face metal band hailing from Metro Manila, Philippines is one you shouldn`t dare to neglect.

For several months in the past, the lads have had some rough patches with members having difficulties of keeping up with local gigs and personal issues, yet early 2014 came and Barriers is finally back in the scene — renewed, restored, and revitalized.

Their influences include bands such as The Devil Wears Prada, Parkway Drive, August Burns Red, and Miss May I among many others. They also play alongside melodic hardcore band Saving The Dying Hope, False Contender: a pop punk band from Quezon City, and SIMILAR//INTENTS, a progressive/melodic hardcore band.

Enticed already? You should be. With their first single Cancer [free download here!] from their upcoming EP entitled, CONTAGION out now, these boys would be hard to miss.

"I am torn between someone I should let go and someone I should hold on to.
Torn in two, forgotten the truth.
I seem to subject that the answers aren't bestowed upon me.
Yet they are right in front of my face.
So many months on end. So many days passed by.
Am I bound to live alone or am I bound to live with someone?
Is this the only way to make my life relevant
or are there any means for me yet to learn in this forsaken world.
Torn in two, forgotten the truth.
Fate is a cancer, it spreads on and on without end.
I am a slave to fate and nothing can set me free.
We are all slaves to fate and we aren't meant to be free.
Every remaining piece of my soul shatters at your first sight.
I am devastated in a blink of an eye.
Maybe I'm meant to be wretched and alone at the same time."

  2. Thanks for sharing this! I don't know many local bands to be honest, so I'm glad I was able to discover Barriers through your blog <3 I actually love the song. My preferred genre of music is indie rock, but I do listen to hard rock sometimes and this song is definitely going into my iTunes! Love the lyrics as well.
