ABOUT OUR DEBUT ALBUM:
We are working with a legendary sound engineer named Steve Albini who has worked with bands like Nirvana, Iggy Pop and The Stooges, the Pixies, Robert Plant & Jimmy Page of Led Zepellin, PJ Harvey, and many more! We only have to pay approximately 10,000 US dollars to have the album fully done, and considering Steve Albini has charged some of the bands mentioned above hundreds of thousands of dollars (even millions for the band Bush), we are grateful to be able to work with someone who is at the top of his field at such a "gift" of a price.(note: the album has been sent off for manufacturing!)
THE ALBUM'S MESSAGE:
Our debut album has songs that speak to the people out there that are fed up with the current state of the world, from the corruption and hypocrisy in the political world, to the inner revolution that needs to occur within before attaining an outer balance and harmony. We are ready and willing to stand up against all authorities that try and bring down the human will to celebrate life with a full passionate heart. We are not slaves and will not be treated like one. Nor should any other human being. It's time to wake up the zombies out there and free ourselves from all metaphoric chains, and live free as we were born into this world before we were conditioned and brainwashed and forcefed that we are imperfect and not worth eternity. Everyone has a right to their own free will. The question is: how strong is your will to live and what is your dream - and what are you doing about it? Go and live it up! There's no one out there to stop you but your fears of rejection and embarrasement. Let the ego go, and let your pride be gone, and let your true self shine like a wild fire!
Below is a live video of our band. May it inspire you to become part of this new musical revolution that is growing stronger and bigger everyday.A BOW OF GRATITUDE TO YOU FROM US THREE!

Barb Wire Dolls combine first wave punk and grunge rock in a politically charged, hook-filled, three power chord punch. Described by Guitar World magazine as "a true-to-the-genre punk band" and fronted by the fiery and outspoken femme-fatale singer Isis Queen along with guitarist Pyn Doll and drummer Krash Doll, the band came together while living in an artist commune on the island of Crete. Barb Wire Dolls were invited to play Los Angeles after DJ Rodney Bingenheimer started playing their demo non-stop on KROQ. Within a few weeks the band moved to California and sold out the Roxy on their first go, becoming the first punk band from Greece to perform in the US. Barb Wire Dolls shows have attracted rock icons Steve Jones (Sex Pistols), Jello Biafra (Dead Kennedys), Chuck Dukowski (Black Flag), Jennifer Finch (L7) and Frances Bean Cobain. The songwriting on Slit is an examination of societal absurdities, a special interest and religious conspiracy to obscure truth and the urgency to wake-up and confront it before it’s too late.Press:
"Every few years or so a band comes along that changes the music landscape. They are different from the other bands that are out there. They bring something new and exciting to an otherwise generic music scene that the public has grown tired of. The Beatles did this, The Sex Pistols did this, Guns N' Roses did this, Nirvana did this. But for the past 20 years no band has been able to stand out from their predecessors. No band has been able to re-ignite the music scene, to bring back the energy it once had....that is until now. With their sound, their look and their attitude, Barb Wire Dolls are going to do what no band has been able to do within the last two decades...take the music industry by storm." - Sugarbuzz magazine
"Barb Wire Dolls throw down the gauntlet to today's pre-fab rebellion, pointing a middle finger where it so clearly belongs." - Blank TV
"Punk’s not dead and it never went away. It has been pushed underground for decades by the media because it speaks of the truth and exposes hypocrisy, but with the political climate of the world rapidly changing, a new female oriented punk resurgence has created a movement across the globe. One band in particular is shaking things up with their debut album titled Slit that was recorded in just two days by indie mastermind Steve Albini. Hailing from the birthplace of Democracy, Barb Wire Dolls is a politically charged female-fronted Punk trio from Greece that combines the furious raw elements of first wave punk and grunge rock into a modern melodic sound that decimates hearts and minds." - Fixe magazine
