From Savannh Georgia, Baroness are simply bad-ass.....they have created some criminally
overlooked stoner/psych, I think they have really given us some GREAT shit, and it's high time guys got around to digging up on this excellent fucking band. Basically, the lineup is guitarist/vocalist John Baizley, guitarist Peter Adams, bassist Summer Welch, and drummer Alan Blickle (in very recent times the drummer and bassist have been replaced)......
Thier first full length was released in 2007 ("The Red Album").....it is a wonderful piece of hard rocking progressive-stoner (!), wonderful album that was perhaps the best release of that year for my money......"Rays on Pinion" and "The Birthing" get things started right, and, that's really about a fourth of it.....wonderful, memorable album that I still listen to a lot.
In 2009 they released the almost as good "Blue Record", really, like it's predecessor, hard to describe.....wonderful rocking tunes, flowing together with weird lyrics.....this is a fine band, PLEASE check them out and comment on their greatness.
In 2011 they released the ALSO excellent double set, "Green and Yellow", it's fantastic, although the "Yellow" disc does wear a tiny bit thin, but "Green" is as good as anything they have produced.
OK, obviously I love these guys, and I happen to have some of their early EP's and the like.....in 2004 they released their first EP, going WAY out there for the title "First".....it's great as well, you can
Well, what else....a 2010 single, "A Horse Called Golgatha".....a split disc with Unpersons entitled "A Grey Sigh In a Flower Husk" (also known as "Third", beleive it or not) and a 2013 live recording from the BBC, which features the "new" rythem section, and is also pretty damn good.
