Having been ridiculed for his passionate affair with the spoken word, the Baron was hailed a follower of witchcraft.
Baron von Alias, the lyrical time Lord is proud to deliver the prelude to his debut album for free download, The Mechanism. Based in the North of England, the Baron has attracted the attention of names such as Guilty Simpson, Melanie Rutherford, T3 (Slum Village), Frank N Dank, Butta Verses along with producers Oh No, Dom P, Steesh and Khrysis; all of whom will appear on his impending release Timepiece.
