The Grinning Barretts Press

This is an amazing review from The Other Side Reviews, and we are ridiculously pleased about this part: “Ending abruptly – I mean just stopping – is one of the more intriguing aspects of the album. The brutality is palpable as The Grinning Barretts step back and say “well, that’s it” at the sharp end.”


Karl Is My Uncle had some pretty great stuff to say about our H.L.L EP!!  Check it out here: https://karlismyunkle.com/2022/04/11/the-grinning-barretts-deliver-dynamic-and-cerebral-ep-hope-like-hell/

“A really intriguing mix that is able to make them stand out from the crowd. It’s as if their music was a horde of Irish warriors from the 1800s running at you in black studded jackets and mohawk hair.”  https://www.edgarallanpoets.com/the-grinning-barretts/


“The Grinning Barretts’ latest album ‘Hope Like Hell’ will invoke your inner pub raiding, Nordic raver, and pint drainer in less than 10 minutes.”  https://www.rockeramagazine.com/album-hope-like-hell-by-the-grinning-barretts/

Rising Artists Blog reviewed the new H.L.H EP “The fast paced song that is “10 Teraohm” will make your nose bleed because you’re head banging so hard”  https://risingartistsblog.com/2022/04/21/hope-like-hell-by-the-grinning-barretts/

Artisti Online blog reviewed our EP in Italian!!! https://www.artistionline.tv/l/hlh-ep-the-grinning-barretts/

The St Padraigs EP AND the Riot EP were both released in 2018, and came in at #1 and #2 on Celtic-Folk-Punk’s Best of 2018 list!! https://celticfolkpunk.blogspot.com/2018/12/2018-12-21-best-of-2018-celtic-punk-rock.html

Both The St Padraigs EP AND the Riot EP were reviewed by London Celtic Punks, and from what we can tell it sure seems like they liked them!!!
