Following a 2012 bus accident that injured three members, Baroness has returned to the music scene with an album of renewal and rebirth. The Georgia sludge metal band (for the uninitiated, that’s a mix of doom metal, hardcore punk and Southern rock) has produced an album that is less heavy than some of their previous works. Psychedelic keyboards, euphoric hooks, and powerful harmonies are at the forefront here. Baroness seems to be reveling in its survival and asking its listeners to celebrate with them. So bang your head in joy, metal heads!
