Crowbar Finish New Album

During an appearance on the “Does It Doom?” podcast, Crowbar’s Kirk Windstein confirmed that the band’s new album is finished. The effort is tentatively set to be released in September.

Windstein said the following about the record:

“It’s really a killer record — I love it. It’s got a lot of [guitar] harmonies and it’s got a lot more doomy riffs. We only had one proper fast song — one of our more upbeat, hardcore-type, MOTÖRHEAD speed, I call it, type tunes; we’ve only got one like that. Out of all 10 tracks, besides that one tune, there’s only maybe two other fast, what I would consider fast, songs on the whole record. So it’s kind of a throwback but a modern, more mature touch on it.”

He continued:

“We’re all super, super happy with the way it came out. The production’s amazing, again from Duane Simoneaux. The guitar tone’s amazing. The songs themselves are great; I’m really happy. It’s really one of the only CROWBAR records that I’m really happy with everything — every riff, I’m happy with the tones, with the production, with the lyrics, with the way I sang; the whole nine yards. So I’m really just loving it, to be honest — I really am.”

@Crowbarmusic to perform "Odd Fellows Rest" in its entirety at Roadburn 2018 . As part of Jacob Bannon's curation, Crowbar will perform their classic album "Odd Fellows Rest" in its entirety at Roadburn Festival 2018. . Crowbar have been at the forefront of heavy music for nearly three decades. Early in their career, they were of the first to combine the key elements of the Doom and Thrash metal sounds, pioneering what is considered the Sludge metal genre. After a number of breakthrough releases, Crowbar released their 1998 album "Odd Fellows Rest". This incredible album merged their existing heaviness with a refined melodic sensibility, creating one of the most powerful metal albums of the era. . "In 1991 I was introduced to Crowbar when I bought a tape of their "Obedience thru Suffering" album. The sheer heaviness of the band floored me and I was hooked ever since. For me personally, their 1998 album "Odd Fellows Rest" is a high watermark of creativity. It is an incredible collection of songs that have been daily listens for me for nearly two decades. It's an honor to have the band perform this record live at Roadburn Festival 2018." . – Jacob Bannon . #jacobbannon #jbannon #converge #wearyourwounds #roadburn #crowbar #oddfellowsrest #roadburn #roadburnfestival
