Former Baroness drummer Allen Blickle, who left the band after sustaining major injuries in a bus crash in 2012, has re-emerged with a new project alongside his ex-step brother Juston Nuckois called Alpaca.
But it doesn't sound quite how you'd expect.
Alpaca presents a strange new dance sound which sounds a million miles from Baroness' progressively minded metal sound, albeit with a rock-inspired twist. But then, given the dramatic end to his time in Baroness, perhaps it's no surprise that he's focussing on something different.
Blickle acts as a multi-instrumentalist on their debut album which has been slowly recorded over five years, and launched this week on Robotic Empire records.
