Baroness is an American heavy metal band from Savannah, Georgia whose original members grew up together in Lexington, Virginia.

Red Album is the debut studio album released by the progressive metal band Baroness. Red Album was named Album of the Year by heavy metal magazine Revolver. The music video for "Wanderlust" debuted on December 8, 2007 on Headbangers Ball. In 2017, Rolling Stone ranked Red Album as 83th on their list of 'The 100 Greatest Metal Albums of All Time. It is their only album to feature Brian Blickle on guitar. All lyrics written by John Baizley; all music composed by Baroness.
In summer of 2012, Baroness was poised for a breakthrough with the release of their album Yellow and Green, a two-LP collection of songs that found them expanding beyond the boundaries of metal and fully embracing subtler, more melodic sounds spanning from psychedelia to dream pop and post-hardcore. Not long after its release, however, the band endured a horrific bus crash that not only forced them to cancel their remaining tour dates, but came perilously close to ending the band altogether. Shock Me features the same lineup as that of the band’s first post-accident tour, and though the names might be different than some of those on previous Baroness records (of which only two to date feature an identical lineup of musicians), the spirit and the soul of the band is clearly intact.
Shock Me" is a single by American sludge metal band, Baroness. The single was the band's second ever to chart, reaching number 28 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock chart. Shock Me" was the band's first, and to date only, song nominated for a Grammy award
