Baroness Biography

Biography

Baroness plays an eclectic brand of heavy metal, 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 post-punk bands. The awesome ass brutality of Baroness formed in the Summer 2003 in Savannah, GA 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 its 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 - coming September 4th -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. BARONESS has forged forward with heavy independent touring -almost 250 shows a year - since the band’s inception. They've criss-crossed the U.S. three times, Europe, and the UK twice, and have performed at international music festivals such as SXSW, MacRock, ZXZW in The Netherlands, and more. Baroness has toured with many friends and peers, including Municipal Waste, Torche, Kylesa, Alabama Thunderpussy, Cursed, The Holy Mountain, and many more. Immediate plans include shooting their first videos, as well as extensive Fall/Winter US and European headlining tours. As the Red Album proves and their unstoppable live show will, Baroness' formidable reputation proceeds them for a reason.
