Biography

(2008 – present)

Formed in 2008 by Phil Barry, Be My Enemy’s mission has been to pull together Phil’s many musical talents as a guitarist, producer, singer and songwriter to create an energetic hybrid of electronic and rock musicial styles. Previous to Be My Enemy you might have known Phil as a half of London’s seminal electronic rockers Cubanate, who in the 1990s produced 4 albums, released such classics as ‘Oxyacetylene’ and ‘Bodyburn’, toured extensively around the USA and Europe and influenced a host of other bands along the way.

The Be My Enemy sound can best be described as an uncompromising energetic fusion of rave, metal, techno and punk that is at home at festivals and clubs and will either make you want to dance your arse off or bang your head and stage dive. Often other bands claim to fuse rock and dance together but usually fail. Be My Enemy is the real deal, not a watered down attempt to be ‘innovative’ or ‘do something original’. Phil has been doing this for 20 years already and has been doing it with attitude.

The first song written for Be My Enemy’s debut and the first song on the album was ‘New Wave’. “The song is autobiagraphical,” states Phil, “it’s about me stepping up to the plate and becoming the frontman of my own project, finally”. A couple tracks on the album are reminiscent of Cubanate: ‘Ghost In The Machine’ sounds like a raved up twin of Cubanate’s ‘Barbarossa’ but with a mad middle section, or ‘Wasted Life’ which is similar to earlier Cubanate songs with sampled off vocals and repeating phrases.
