Baroness sets the tone with “Last Word” - WXPN | Vinyl At Heart

Gearing up for their sixth studio album STONE, Philly’s Baroness has released “Last Word”, a testament to their hard rock origins and the beginnings of what is soon to be a huge new chapter for this metal band. “Last Word” defines the direction of their upcoming release instantly with charged, fast-paced guitar and a steady drum rhythm that’ll have your head banging in seconds flat whether you like it or not.

This song is nothing short of epic. Creating a longer, more operatic song is not uncharted territory for the band, but as time has revealed, they nail it every time. “Last Word” deals with fate, demise, and all the soul-searching one may do in between. There’s a tension built in the verses that releases during the anthemic chorus, led boldly by vocalist John Baizley. The video released for the song is a visualizer of sorts, using dark imagery and stop-motion-style camera work to enhance the overall spirit of the track.

Check out the music video below and be on the lookout for Baroness’ show at Union Transfer on December 1st during their Sweet Oblivion tour with support from Sheer Mag and Uniform. Find tickets at WXPN’s Concerts and Events page and hold onto your hats.
