Wow. End of an era. News has broke that longtime Baroness guitarist Pete Adams, who played a HUGE role in the band’s ascent to arguably the coolest sludge prog pop hybrid band just about ever, has left the band amicably. So glad I saw their first return show post crash. Pete will still be active in the awesome af Valkyrie (which he plays in with his brother) and Baroness have even announced a replacement already.  We are sure they will still be great. Still, we gotta toast Pete on his way out as watching him and John together was always magic and felt like a real brotherhood as well. Maximum eternal hails.

Read a lengthy statement from everyone BELOW. It is warm and inspiring, actually.

Baroness release “Shock Me” video

Baroness remain super skilled at creating a certain escapism that nonetheless makes you feel all your aches, pains and hard won victories. There is emotional resonance in their material that far and away rings more bells than, say, blood gargling black metal under a moldy rock.

“Shock Me” from Purple now has a fitting video, directed by Don Tyler and John Baizley with art direction by Karen Jerzyk. It’s a lot more interesting than the live studio “Chlorine & Wine” video, which is such a powerful tune that could’ve benefited from the aesthetic play and colorful pseudo-expressionism that sprouts wonderful seeds in this new clip effectively.

Not to mention, even by high Baroness standards this tune has not only a memorable chorus but a serious burner of a guitar solo.

Baroness streaming “Purple” in entirety

Baroness are streaming hotly awaited album Purple in full. The record is a bit heavier than Yellow and Green were but retain a lot of the cool dynamics that made those records an evolution. While Blue Record is still my favorite of their colorful career, this album is brilliant and has some seriously great tunes like sludgy and precision drumming opener “Morningstar” (sludgier than most recent Mastodon), the proggy “Kerosene”, hooky “Shock Me” and the sing a long/bad ass “Chlorine & Wine”. They have more than earned their staying power. One of the best bands in the rock world.

“While we realize the accident is obviously of interest, we have gone over that particular story’s details at length over the past few years,” Baizley says. “We feel that this album not only addresses but puts a punctuation mark on that story. Baroness existed before the accident and will continue to exist, and we’d rather talk about what we’ve created with Purple than let one side-story overtake or define who we are as a band.”

Pete from Baroness “Special Guitarist” for Samhain tour

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Monday, July 28, 2014 at 8:23 AM (PST)

Unholy Passion, Batman!!!

Pete from Baroness is the “Special Guest Guitarist” in Samhain.

From Facebook:

We’re incredibly excited to finally start talking about this. Pete might be the biggest Danzig/Misfits/Samhain fan i know, and he’ll be playing a series of Samhain-headlining shows this fall, the first full Samhain shows since 1985. I think every musician secretly dreams of joining their favorite band onstage but it never seems to actually happen. We’re all really excited for Pete.

Baroness live “Green Theme” video footage posted by band

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Monday, June 23, 2014 at 5:40 PM (PST)

baroness__09627_zoom

Thinking man’s melodic sludge survivors Baroness have been posting a lot of cool content on their Facebook page the last few days. I for one love Yellow & Green and think anyone who doesn’t needs their ears checked. This is great music.

Amongst the choicer posts is a great live video of the band in their finest element, live on stage. The performance of “Green Theme”  features the post crash line-up from San Diego’s The Casbah last summer and can be worshiped HERE.

Baroness release live “March To The Sea” video

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Tuesday, August 27, 2013 at 8:19 AM (PST)

eshf_baronessdougseymourcrop2_1Baroness have released a live video for their bellowed yet catchy as all get out Yellow & Green track “March To The Sea” (not a Pelican cover). The video is live and taken from their sold out return show with Tombs and Pallbearer at Union Transfer in PA. This was the band’s first time electric on stage after their UK bus crash and was a night to remember. I was there and I believe they opened with “Bullhead’s Psalm” and that this song was second or third, but they have comped it with footage of the band taking the stage to chants of “Welcome Back”. Click Here for a recent review of that show I wrote.

This is a passionate video and a glimpse of what it felt like to be there that night.

True Widow prepare to release Relapse Records debut

Posted by longhairedpoet on Thursday, April 18, 2013 at 5:09 PM (PST)

True Widow The Texas metal upstarts True Widow are getting ready to release their Relapse Records debut on July 23 entitled Circumambulation.

Singer/guitarist DH Phillips had this to say of the release:

“I’ve always considered us a simple band but these songs seem even more boiled down. I’d say the pace is a little different as well.  Things are a bit more upbeat.  We also did not want to do a double LP.  For me, as a listener of records, I get tired of getting up to change sides so many times.  We wanted it to fit on a single record so the album clocks in at about 45 minutes as opposed to an hour like we have done in the past.”

True Widow will join label makes Baroness on tour. Check out those dates here.

No one involved with organizing this will or wants to make any money from this event.”
