Baroness – “Take My Bones Away”

Yellow & Green, the third album from Georgia sludge-monsters Baroness, is one of the most anticipated underground metal albums in recent memory. And now we’re finally getting to hear a track from the album: A big chunk of melodic riffage called “Take My Bones Away.” Baroness have never been afraid of hooks, but the blazing… More »

Eternal Summers – “Pogo (Allen Blickle Remix)”

Last January we posted a remix of Surfer Blood’s “Swim (To Reach The End)” by Baroness drummer Allen Blickle. Then, this past summer, he recast the Florida crew’s “Twin Peaks.” Surprising? Not really. When I posted Baroness’s “Swollen And Halo” in October ’09 I quoted a Decibel where Blickle discussed he and his bandmates’ listening… More »

Surfer Blood – “Twin Peaks (Allen Blickle Remix)”

It’s not the first time Allen Blickle’s remixed Surfer Blood — we posted his “Swim” remix a few months back. This remix appears on Surfer Blood’s “Floating Vibes” single, out August 24. It’s still a little surprising that a member of Baroness would remix this band, but it’s not as surprising as how jangly and… More »

Coachella 2010: Jay-Z, LCD, Disco Balls & Chandeliers

Four years into my Coachella career and I’ve never experienced an Indio spring so mild. It’s a gift from the gods meaning Brooklynites like Scott and I can wear jeans all weekend, a blessing with the residual benefit of ensuring nobody in Indio is forced to see our unsightly Brooklynite legs (you are welcome, California).

Allen Blickle (Baroness) Remixes Surfer Blood (Stereogum Premiere)

Surfer Blood’s name is tougher than their sound. No doubt. But what happens when the West Palm Beach buzz group hook up with Baroness drummer Allen Blickle for a remix of Astro Coast’s nimble frontrunner “Swim (To Reach The End)”? It’s an interesting pairing: A longstanding (relatively speaking, in digital-age terms) metal band who’ve bee… More »

Haunting The Chapel: The 30 Best Metal Albums Of 2009 (Plus Dozens Of Guest Lists)

Every year I’m tempted to — and sometimes do — say “this has been a great year for metal.” It’s a toss-away idea: If you consume the genre obsessively, every year seems sort of great, the chaff turning fuzzy and falling into the background, the favorites cementing themselves in your brain and eardrums. Or maybe… More »

New Baroness Video – “A Horse Called Golgotha”

When I wrote up “Swollen And Halo” and talked up Baroness’ Blue Record, I told you to keep watch for the Joshua Green-directed video for another standout, “A Horse Called Golgotha.” It’s here and it’s suitably intense considering the Golgotha reference/Calvary pun. The clip features a bald, bloodied, and muscular savior/modern dancer involved in variou… More »

New Baroness – “Swollen And Halo”

In the November issue of Decibel, there’s a feature with Baroness where drummer Allen Blickle says:

I have no idea how the hell we ended up playing this kind of music. When we first got together, all [bassist] Summer [Welch] listened to was King Diamond, [guitarist/vocalist] John [Baizley] was obsessed with old Flood records,… More »

New Baroness Video – “Wanderlust”

Savannah metallers Baroness released the superbly epic and thorny Red Album earlier this year. (None of the guys sport face tattoos, but still, we imagine it’ll be one of those Blood Mountain crossovers … something about Georgia blood and water?) Well, now dudes have one helluva excellently confounding video to add to their list of… More »
