It's pretty hard to give a balanced review for 'Red Album'. In some ways this is a definite 5 star album but some of it doesn't quite gell or stand out as much on an overall listen.

Given the fact that this is a relapse release, I was hoping it would be heavier than it is. It certainly isn't as heavy as Mastodon or as complex as a band like Dysrhythmia, although there's plenty to keep you interested. Not being a band I'd really heard of before, I wasn't that sure what to expect and it took a good few listens to get into. Also, it feels like the ideas start to run out slightly towards the last few tracks, but there is a wealth of talent & progression on display in the best stuff.

Opener 'Rays of Pinion' is definetly on the heavy side, a melodic, uplifting intro leads into heavy riffs & a fierce vocal delivery. The more you listen, the more its apparent that the band have a blatant disregard for song structure, which generally, although not always, works to great effect. Quite often the vocals drop in & out of the muscial tapestry without using a chorus or particular phrase as the hook. The tracks meander along, sometimes focusing on the bass, sometimes the drums or the brillant guitar interplay. This is something the band do have in common with Mastodon. The twin guitar style works well to create constantly evolving melodies & moods. 'The Birthing' starts out in rollicking style, only to break down into a heavy bass, almost dub like sound which then reverts back to the heavy riffing. This is interspersed with a southern riff, that splits the track in two, ending in the same way it begins, with a burst of heaviness. The majority of tracks continue to work in this way, mixing slower or longer proggy sections with bursts of noise & aggression.

baroness are from savannah in virginia,southern america and their sound has that feel and identity without ever restricting itself to that and that alone.
The band have been compared to mastodon,explosions in the sky,clutch and isis,record labels love to do that to catch fans unaware but in this instance the comparisons are more or less on the money.
The album has ten tracks whipping in at 44 minutes long,there is a hidden track that is 11 minutes long but its mainly silence so i wont mention that.The band are epic without ever really being so,confused,you should be,its the way they develop the song at times that gives them that personna,slow ,structured,never in a hurry but delivering when they feel like it,not when you would expect!
Swirling soundscapes give way to fierce riffing but not that fierce,this band arent as heavy as some of their peers but when you listen you will be drawn in.The band dont always follow the post rock path,on tracks liek the brilliant 'wanderlust' they just go for it and never stop,the four instrumentals here vary in style but complement what comes before and after and as for the last track 'grad',a beast of a closer that features a roaring trumpet,goose pimples or what my friend,something else.
Baroness experiment here but dont really stray that far from the norms of music,so that can be viewed one of two ways but for my opinion this is great stuff,a fine debut album from a band that should be taken very seriously,thanks treeny.

As a fan of heavy metal, I found this album extremely refreshing. I discovered Baroness when I heard 'Isak' on the Radio 1 Rock Show. The majority of the Red Album is musically-oriented, sparing on the vocals. The major highlight to the music is the drummer's contribution - which was astounding. The vocals are the worst aspect, and lyrics are poor. But i recommend this album for people who appreciate guitar metal. And I cannot stress how blown away I was by listening to the drumming - it's not anything as tense as heavy metal, yet just as intricate.
Stand out tracks are Rays on Pinion, Isak and Wanderlust.

I first came across Baroness following a 5K review in Kerrang! magazine. I then promptly went at bought their latest offering - the superb 'Yellow and Green,' and was very impressed by what I heard. It was catchy, melodic, soulful, relaxed and intense at the same time with plenty of memorable riffs and guitar parts, and was a breath of fresh air from the 500 blastbeats a minute, incoherent screaming vocal crap that defines metal and a lot of rock, and was very different to anything else I'd ever really heard.
'Yellow and Green,' was predominantly built around vocals and melody, Red definetley isn't. 4 of the albums' 10 tracks are instrumentals, and the 6 that do have vocals and lyrics are quite minimal as is proven by the amount of words on display in the album's lyrics book under each song. Some of the album's longer tracks that include lyrics go 4 minutes without a word being uttered before letting the vocals kick in.
The guitars are the definite focus point here, and as pointed out by other reviews, at times sound like early Mastodon and even Thin Lizzy, with a lot of eerily melodic guitars and manages to do the Deftones trick of being heavy, intense, melodic, relaxed and beatiful at the same time.
Opener 'Rays Of Pinion,' is an 8 minute epic that goes back and forth between melodic and almost clean guitars to ominous downtuned distorted riffs. 'The Birthing' does more or less the same but way more direct and shorter, great song.
There isn't really anything I'd consider a 'convential song' on the album, the closest maybe being the brilliant 'Wanderlust,' but then again, Baroness are not a convential band and have definetley got their own sound, so convention goes out the window.
