Biography

Baron Von Sloth was born out of destruction. When most people give up and go home, these four thrash monsters reformed and regrouped to reformulate one of LA's most anticipated musical groups of the 2000's. After Ashton parted ways with his long-time band, he began to write his own songs that were more streamlined and groove oriented than his previous efforts. While he had been playing them for friends to receive feedback, he began to realize that he was slowly gaining momentum and actually forming the band, "Baron Von Sloth" (a crazy name given to the project that in time has come to symbolize performing with unrestrained energy and rising above mediocrity). As he gave a copy of the rough demo to his close friend and part time roadie and recording pal Phill, (who was playing in other bands at the time) he instantly found his drummer. While continuing to pass around this 4 song disc, he sparked the interest of one of his former band mates, Devin (Bass). Like catching a big wave, Devin began to paddle and dropped in on this breaking curl with full-on low end style. As the three began to hammer out the details of bringing this digital demo into live reality, they continued the search for the ultimate voice that would embody the Baron Von Sloth sound. In conjunction with these efforts, Ash and Phill were already performing in another band supporting their close friend and singer "SVH". Enlisting the help of SVH, they started writing the vocal parts for the existing demo. As the writing process began to exceed all expectations, opportunities presented themselves, and "SVH" formally joined Baron Von Sloth. This amazing team of four has grown into a tight writing team where all perspectives are considered and all possibilities exhausted. In their very short existence they have broken into the LA music scene with a huge impact from delivering wild live shows and self producing their critically acclaimed EP. Baron Von Sloth maintains an active performance schedule, a huge MySpace presence, and is aggressively seeking positive, dedicated, and qualified representation to help them conquer the world!

Lyrics

Bullwhip

Written By: Baron Von Sloth

I want you near, hey
I want you near to me
Why can't you be,
A little bit closer to me
I thought I told,
I thought I told it would be
The way I saw,
The way I knew it'd see
I need to be, the places I need to be
The way it works, the way I know it should be
The things I want
These things they move
They seem to evade me

I want your money
I want everything ya have
I need that honey
I need all the things that
I want now
...chicadica
I want now
...chicadica
I want know
...chicadica
You should listen to me know

I want you to hear some things that you've never heard before
Want you to know ideas that you will want to support
To wait and not to act, regretting it for life
Now you ask why, don't ask why

It's all to clear, hey
It's all to clear to me
That I should be,
A greater bit deeper in you
I thought you knew,
I thought you knew it too
The way you move,
The way you entice me
I need to have, whatever I need to have
Willing to give, more than is needed to give
It's yours to take
It's yours to rule
Take yours inside of you

I want your money
I want everything ya have
I need that funny
Funny little thing that
I want now
...chicadica
I want now
...chicadica
I want now
...chicadica
You should listen to me know

I want you to hear some things that you've never heard before
Want you to know ideas that you will want to support
To wait and not to act, regretting it for life
Now you ask why, don't ask why

Baooo...it's goin' up...now
Daooo...it's goin' down...now
Baooo...it's goin' up
We like it up, keep it up

Baooo...it's goin' up...now
Daooo...it's goin' down...now
Baooo...it's goin' up
We like it up, thro it up!

Peka-teka-meka pushin'
Peka-teka-meka pullin'
Icka-deka-meka I do not know what it is, what the hell is it
Deka-teka-meka deeper
Beka-teka-meka bleaker
There's a tension in my head that needs to be released

After it has gone down
And then comes back up
Never to drink that again
My faint memory
Has reappeared
Once again right in front of me

Baooo...it's goin' up...now
Daooo...it's goin' down...now
Baooo...it's goin' up
Keep it up, thro it up!

Beka-teka-meka backward
Feka-teka-meka forward
Icka-deka-meka I do not know what it is, what the hell is it
Feka-teka-meka fowl stench
Geka-teka-meka gut wrench
There's a tension in my head that needs to be released

After it has gone down
And then comes back up
Never to drink that again
My faint memory
Has reappeared
Once again right in front of me

Thro up!
Thro up!
Thro it all up!
