Baroness is a progressive heavy metal band from Savannah, Georgia, that was formed by a group of high school friends who had grown up together in Virginia. Since the band’s formation in 2003, they have released an increasingly impressive string of albums. But, their trajectory was very nearly cut short when the tour bus that they were traveling on plummeted 30 feet off of an overpass near Bath, England. Singer/guitarist John Baizley was left with a broken arm and broken leg, and a long road to recovery.
The good news is that Baizley has fully recovered from his injuries, and Baroness is back with a new rhythm section and a brand new record on the horizon. Continuing their tradition of naming their albums after colors, Baroness will release Purple on December 18, 2015. Today’s Massive Metal Monday track is the lead single from that record. This is “Chlorine and Wine.”
