Baroness is an American heavy metal band from Savannah, Georgia that has been active since 2003. The members of the original line-up (John Baizley, Tim Loose, Summer Welch, and Allen Blickle) grew up together in Lexington, Virginia. The band has undergone numerous line-up changes, with Baizley serving as the sole constant throughout.

Baroness play a mix of heavy metal styles, including sludge, progressive, and alternative. Pitchfork has described the band’s sound as “rock music that folds in… more metal leanings, along with something more delicate and spare”.
