Baroness Biography

Based in Savannah, Georgia USA, the progressive Alternative-Metal collective Baroness was founded in 2003 by vocalist + guitarist John Baizley, who left his previous band to start up a new musical project with guitarist Tim Loose, bass player Summer Welch and drummer Allen Blickle.

The quartet began to garner serious notice in the underground scene releasing three EPs and a split album which was the last recording of Baroness material featuring Tim Loose who was replaced by new lead guitarist Brian Blickle.

With a sound shaped by hundreds of explosive live shows, the band signed to the independent label Relapse Records and recorded "Red Album" for a September 2007 release.

After touring with such acts as Opeth, Coheed And Cambria and Clutch, in October of 2009 the Georgian heavy-Rock group put out their sophomore full-length disc, "Blue Record", which marked the debut of Peter Adams as the new lead guitarist. The album peaked at #14 on the U.S. Top Independent chart and made it to the #117 position on the all-genre Billboard 200 listing.

In early 2012 longtime bassist Summer Welch left the band and Matt Maggioni has since joined and assumed the low-end duties in the group. The following July saw Baroness unleash an 18-song double set titled "Yellow & Green" which contains the Active Rock radio hit "Take My Bones Away".
