Baroness: Timid concertgoers might want to skip this one.

Formed in 2003 by childhood friends from Lexington, Virginia, the now-Savannah, Georgia-based metal outfit Baroness has been blowing minds with its punishing riffs, blistering leads and surprising versatility ever since. After releasing its critically acclaimed sophomore LP, Blue Record — named 2009's "Album of the Year" by Decibel magazine — the band has seen about as meteoric of a rise as a still-underground metal band could possibly imagine. It has toured Japan with Isis, the United States with Mastadon and the Deftones and even Australia opening for Metallica, winning over a legion of die-hard fans all along the way with its intense live shows.

ROY G BIV: In 2006 Baroness released the Red Album, followed in 2009 by the aforementioned Blue Record. July 2012 will see the release of the band's hotly anticipated third album, Yellow & Green. Fans should expect to hear some new jams at this show.
