Nobody can point to one particular build and say it's the highest DPS melee build because it depends on your gear and your weapon crafting. Barbarians are pretty strong though, from Mighty Rage, Thundering Rage, and 2-handed weapon bonuses.
My opinion on the build:
The choice of 32 brb / 7 wpm / 1 paladin is not bad, but personally I would go with 31 barb / 4 ftr / 5 hs. If you have a wrap then I'd swap HS for something else and go 2H. Don't forget that if you drop Paladin you will probably need to spend a feat or two on saves.
The weapon of choice is outdated. Double weapons are outperformed by other large size weapons. This means greatsword, halberd, falchion, heavy flail, greataxe, maul, trident, scythe, or spear. I would pick whatever you have the most and best of.
Choosing STR arti is useful for Limbo, but if you are focusing on Hell and Abyss then the CON arti is more useful.
I would try to fit in Terrifying rage and swap Taunt for Intimidate, and also try to fit in Disarm feats.

Toon List "They say that 'He who lives by the sword shall surely also die.' That's why I use a hammer."
Fear aura on barbarians are really helpful. For example, when you can cause red slaads to stand there and do nothing, they go down fast. That's a nice ability to have. Rangers called shot is fantastic and quickly disposes of a lot of mobs, Champion of Torm do a lot of damage and have nice nice added immunity features and fighters give you a lot of choice for feats and selected builds. There isn't specifically one type that does more damage or is better than any other, as Buddhamind mentioned above. The choice is yours and comes down to what you want most out of your tank.
