Baroness are still reeling from the bus crash that halted their heavy metal hot streak last summer, but now their webmaster has organized a relief fund to help pay the band’s extensive medical bills (and to help get them going again).
Rather than blindly ask for your money, the relief fund is getting some help from big names in the scene, like Meshuggah, Mastodon, Municipal Waste, Napalm Death and more, all of whom are donating rare (and signed) gear and merchandise to help raise money.
Would you be into a Thomas Haake signature cymbal signed by Meshuggah’s entire line-up?
What about the snare drum Brann Dailor used during the recording of Mastodon’s Leviathan?
Or a signed Municipal Waste skate deck?
There’s no official site up yet, but you can find the items on the Baroness Relief Facebook page.
