À propos de Baroness
Hailing from Savannah, Georgia, this doom-inspired alt metal quartet eclectically mix the ferocity and mood changes of atmospheric metal with the melodic technique of indie rock and post-hardcore, forging their own brand of underground metal. Formed in 2003, Baroness is childhood friends and former Virginia natives John Baizley (guitar, vocals), Brian Blickle (guitar), Summer Welch (bass) and Allen Blickle (drums). After releasing a few EPs and splits early in their career, Baroness earned high praise for their explosive live shows, and their 2007 full-length debut Red Album was released to critical acclaim. Aside from Baroness' technical prowess and humble approach, the band also boasts some of the best cover art in the business, with frontman and notable artist Baizley's graphics gracing every album, t-shirt and show flyer for his own band as well as numerous other cult favorites in the scene.
