I have been crazy about this band ever since discovering them.A great act,and one I HIGHLY recommend seeing live(I saw them on their Red Album tour and the ticket costs 8 bucks,what a bargain!).They don't rehearse because they play about 300 dates a year and it shows,these guys have some serious chops.

Yes,it's some art from the Dark Tower graphic novels that were made by Marvel with heavy involvement from Stephen King.Being such a huge fan of the series of books I thought the graphic novels would suck but they are great and the art work is superb.

Baroness is one of those bands that once more people discover, will become a really big deal!

Red Album was the ALBUM OF THE MONTH on our site, and Blue Record is a great follow up!  

Never saw them live though and hope to at some point.

Baroness rocks!!!

I saw them open for Opeth and the sound was pretty crappy. You could tell they had good stuff, but it was hard to appreciate it.
 
I like their album covers alot. Big smile

You are quite a fine person, and I am very fond of you. But you are only quite a little fellow, in a wide world, after all.

All cover art is done by Baroness singer John Baizley.He has also done a bunch of covers for other bands.
 
Look at pages 236 & 237 of this thread,I posted a bunch of his art:

Thanks for the artwork reference. He knows how to make those earth goddess types look good.

Their debut full-length?
 
They made two killer ep's before that simply called First and Second.

Yeah I have the debut full length "Red Album". Would you recommend the EP's over their second album?

Both albums are awesome, missed them live in Kansas City last week. One of my recent favorites, a mixture of stoner /prog metal?
