Song of the Week: Isak by Baroness

Since I received notice that the mighty Baroness will be playing a show a stone’s throw from my humble abode I’ve been on a discography binger.  And after listening to all of their albums back to back reaffirmation as to why I dig this band so much ensued.  The very first song I heard from them back in 2006 was “Isak” after I was led to check them out after watching some Mastodon videos.  The trippy guitars, serpentine drums, and fat rhythms had me fall in love with them instantly and running out and buying Red Album was top priority.  Enjoy that first song I heard from Baroness, and if you happen to live in Europe, do make sure to catch them live with the totally awesome Royal Thunder (dates here).  Peace Love and Metal!!!

#42 Edguy – No More Foolin
