10 Songs, 42 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Despite three years and a nearly life-ending bus accident separating Purple from 2012’s Yellow & Green, the resilient Baroness pick up where they left off. The album is an expression of their ever-deepening genius for folding metal and hard rock into delicately layered songcraft. “Morningstar” and “Shock Me” are rousing statements built from pleading howls, chugging beats, and serpentine guitars that consume their own tails. The influence of veteran avant-rock producer Dave Fridmann can be heard in the atmospheric keyboards that shade numerous cuts, including the heroically galloping “Chlorine & Wine.”

Godly antics!

I've only heard one song off of this purple wonderland, and I will already tell you to buy this album. It is what is true to originality and good music in 2015. Find yourself with Baroness.

Album of the year

This is the best album I've heard in 2015 hands down. Baroness created something that is heavy but extremely catchy. Purple is filled with emotion and beautiful melody. It's a album a heavy metal fan and a hard rock ran can both appreciate. Great riffs and unbelievably catchy hooks make this my go to album of 2015. This is their best effort to date.
