Biography

Savannah, GA, United States (2003 – present)

Baroness is a metal band that plays an eclectic brand of , embracing the ferocity and sharp technique of new-millennium metal but with melodic accents and intelligent guitar work that suggests the influence of sludge and bands.

Baroness formed in the Summer 2003 in Savannah, GA, United States with all members, past and present, hailing from Lexington, VA in the foothills of the mighty Blue Ridge Mountains. Maybe that’s where the band draws inspiration for their music, or maybe their style is inspired by their name, or maybe it’s just when these four band-mates come together the end result is always bold and impressive?

With a sound built upon a resolute sense of purpose and shaped by hundreds of explosive live shows, Baroness position themselves at the forefront of heavy music with their first full length and Relapse debut Red Album. Red Album is at once powerful, expressive, confident, and commanding. The record sees the band expand its sonic vision; colossal riffs and haunting vocals roll like thunder across epic songs spanning both the intense and the sublime. As with each Baroness recording, Red Album was recorded at the Jam Room Studio in Columbia, SC w/ producer Phillip Cope and engineers Jay Matheson and Steve Slavich.

In 2009, the Blue Record was released by Relapse Records. With this release, they continued to push the envelope and development as their style progresses. This progression ultimately gave them the Album of the Year award from Decibel Magazine and gave them numerous Best of lists from Pitchfork, Village Voice, Popmatters, Revolver, Rock Sound, and Metal Hammer.

    Yellow and Green do sound similar to their past works, it's just they amped up the boring.

    I can't believe I just started listening to them! I knew about JDBaizley's artwork years before for Pig Destroyer's album art, now I realised he did all Baroness stuff including the logo and is also a member. A sickly talented member. I was living under a n00b rock :( Oh well, better ever than never.

    I really don't get why on every music page you get people trying to assert their opinion as objective fact that pertains to everyone, when we are dealing with music, which is based on taste and personal experience.

    Some people get so stuck up on their own personal projections that they can't go with the flow of change. Yellow & Green is a great album.

    people who listen to Baroness for "aggression" or "brutality" are listening to Baroness for pretty bad reasons.

    It's a lot different, I think. The songwriting is much less on atmosphere and much more on song structure itself. Not that they're bad records, I like them a lot. It's just that you have to enjoy them in a different context from Blue, in the same way you wouldn't listen to Blue in the same frame of mind as you would listening to Red Album.

    I don't understand why people hate Y&G so much. Music sounds pretty much same as previous albums, but vocals are little bit cleaner and in my taste little bit better. Just wonderin' what's the main issue..
