Baroness- "Take My Bones Away"

New Musicadmin7 Comments

A lot like the band Torche with its latest album, Harmonicraft, sludgesters Baroness seem to be moving their heavy rock sound into more accessible territory. "Take My Bones Away" is the first track to drop from the band's forthcoming Yellow & Green album, which will be out on Relapse in July, and the track has a strong alternative rock vibe to it. It's actually something I could see Foo Fighters fans getting down with, but that's not a bad thing by any means, because Baroness manages to maintain a lot of its personality in the process of this change.

The guitars are still sludgy, there are plenty of harmonic guitar solos, the song itself still showcases Baroness' knack for building songs up to epic climaxes. All in all, a nice teaser toward a potentially great album.
