The original post

Posted by CrypticMyth on 15.12.2007 at 08:25


Baroness are a sludge band of the atmospheric variety not too much unlike Isis, but far more dynamic and less minimalistic than Isis (though I obviously like Isis better) - the combo makes for an interesting change. They hail from the US and are quite awesome. I have The Red Album with me and I think it's fantastic. The vocals remind me very much of Aaron Turner's vocals. Any fans?

I think you can listen to some songs here => http://www.yourbaroness.com/
MySpace => http://www.myspace.com/yourbaroness

Fucking great artwork as well!

Can anyone recommend some of their best songs? I'm going to see them with Meshuggah and Decapitated soon.

edit - I just noticed they only have 2 albums. I'll check them both out, but I like what I hear.

Like the other one said.. Steel That Sleeps the eye is pretty good and Swollen aswell

also... Jake Leg, A Horse Called Golgotha, War Wisdom And Rhyme, Rays On Pinion, O'Appalachia, Wanderlust... well you know what ? Listen to both albums (red and blue) in order... back to back.. that should get you started, cuz nothing's bad in there, everything's perfect

Glad to hear that. I am at the venue, but they wont come out, and they are playing alone I think. Lets see how they will sound. Bought the ticket for laughable 9 euros.

Well, it was an awesome show. They came out almost an hour later than scheduled, but that it actually when the club was getting really packed. I was sitting at the back against the sound engineer box and when they came out I could stand and lean against something as well, so it was very comfortable for me. I could see only Baroness's heads but that's ok. There were speakers close to me, and, man, the sound was just great! I mean I could not believe it.

Of course I had to wear my earplug to filter out some crazy highs of the vocals and guitars and the cymbal (if I correct here) crushes. Other than that, great clear sound, including the vocals. I mean I could hear words better than on the album (in fact, the vocals seemed a bit too loud in the mix at the beginning). Also this concert boasts the best bass drum sound I've heard. Not much bass as usually . All the effects and psychedelic stuff sounded great as well. I mean, as far as I am concerned, it was the best sounded I've heard so far.

Now to the performance. My oh my!!! What a band! Perfect execution! Not a single mess-up in all those harmonized vocals and guitars, and they also have so much fun on stage. They really mean what they are playing; they show real emotions when they are playing (especially John Baizley, whom I could see the best).

The setlist was great as well: all the hits from the first two records + a few numbers off the Yellow and Green.

======

Going to the show was a completely spontaneous affair. Since I am now preparing to get married and saving off as much money as possible, and that's why I've been having a "no-concert-no-buying-CDs" policy, but when I checked the price online, I was like "whhhhhaaaa...? I might just go..." So I did buy the ticket on my way to the show, but I purposefully didn't withdraw any for money for the CDs... At the end of the show, I really wanted buy the first two album, and guess what, I recalled I had some 20 euros (not the local Czech crowns) in my wallets, and that means exactly two CDs.

So I bought them after all I even got them signed my John Baizley outside the venue...

The bottom line is it was a great night, with me getting some emotional rejuvenation.

Hail Baroness!

Hail Baroness!


glad you enjoyed the show. also glad they didn't go all Opeth and stick to exclusively the newer, "softer" material and included Blue and Red tracks into the setlist.

With Opeth I was also lucky. They played the new set + 5 older songs. Great show it was as well.

Interview with John D, post the accident

It's quite an awesome read to see him so optimistic. I just hope he can get back to playing and drawing like before.
I hope these guys can get back to what they do best.
