On December 18, Baroness will release their fourth album Purple, via Abraxan Hymns. Now, that’s pretty late in the year, which means that it missed the deadline for our Top 10 Metal Albums of 2015. But that’s OK—it’s a shoo-in for the best of 2016. The band has already shared two excellent tracks from the album, “Chlorine & Wine” and the Endless Playlist pick “Shock Me.” And now, they’ve got yet another new song from the album to stream. It’s called “Morningstar,” and it kicks off the album in melodic, heroic fashion. Suffice it to say, if you liked the other two tracks, you should dig this one. Listen to the Baroness “Morningstar” stream below.
Purple follows 2013′s Yellow and Green.

3. Try to Disappear
