The band was founded by Bes Trefoil in 1999 in Minsk, Belarus. He became the leader, main composer and the front man. In summer'2001 BARRACUDA made it's debut with album "in carna", which was released by DeathBell Productions. From the musical point of view album was a rhythmic mix of brutal death, thrash, core and industrial. Low-tuned guitars, roaring bass, grinding drum-machine and deep growling vocals. By the end of the recording Tref established the first line-up: himself - guitar and vocals, Daz - bass, Vital - drums. In autumn'2001 the band got to the big stage and began it's concert activity.
