Listen To “99 Bottles” Benefit Single Featuring Pantera, Trivium, Mastodon, Etc. Members

Scour‘s Derek Engemann and John Jarvis recently recruited 99 musicians, including members of Pantera, Trivium, Mastodon, Arch Enemy, Exodus, Testament, Butcher Babies, etc., to guest on a special “99 Bottles“ benefit single. That track has since been released and can be streamed below. Proceeds from it will be donated to Old Dog Haven in an effort to help out senior dogs. You can still contribute to the campaign via GoFundMe.

Jarvis commented:

“In conjunction with our friends at Old Dog Haven and The World Famous BOOZEHOUNDZ (Derek & I’s satirical overly drunk punk band) we present the “99 Bottles” out on International Dog Day!!!”

Engemann added:

“This has been an epically fun project involving the entire Metal scene, and even a few Ska bands! This project originally began back in 2013, but was brought back to life once we discovered Old Dog Haven. The “99 Bottles” has truly shown the good side of humanity during these wild times that we are in. I was amazed at all of the people who were eager to sign up for a verse. Winston, Clementine, Tasha, and The Boozehoundz thank everyone involved, and thank you to everyone who takes the time to give this insane track a spin!”

Hatebreed’s Jamey Jasta Wants To Team Up With Other Singers To Record New Vocals Over The Instrumentals On Metallica And Lou Reed’s “Lulu”

Jamey Jasta (Hatebreed) says he wants to team up with Dee Snider (Twisted Sister), Sebastian Bach (ex-Skid Row), Robb Flynn (Machine Head), and Kirk Windstein (Crowbar) to record new vocals over the instrumentals on Metallica and Lou Reed’s collaborative album “Lulu.” He even offered to give the band a $50,000 donation for their “All Within My Hands” Foundation to make his vision a reality:

Ingested Premiere Video For New Song “Another Breath” Feat. Crowbar’s Kirk Windstein

Ingested have premiered a new video for their new song “Another Breath.” This track features Crowbar’s Kirk Windstein and it will appear on the band’s new album “Where Only Gods May Tread,” which is set to be released on August 14.

Ingested guitarist Sam Yates commented:

“In 2018 we opened a fantastic tour in the UK with Crowbar and they were all such down to earth great dudes. Super tight, crazy heavy and had the best stories! Kirk and his wife Robin were so genuine and cool and all of Crowbar would hang with us and shoot the shit most nights.

I was on public transport in the piss down rain writing lyrics for ‘Where Only Gods May Tread‘ and I wanted the opening of what became ‘Another Breath‘ to be this epic, heavy, sad song by someone who could actually sing. My first instinct, my first choice for this song was Kirk. It was that ‘I wonder if…’ moment.”

“Shane [Wesley] took time out of recording with Crowbar to engineer the guest spot himself, and Kirk brought the all-time goods. It was exactly what I had in my mind and he smashed it in record time like an absolute professional. It’s my favourite song from the record; Kirk is truly one of the most slept on metal greats and he was and always will be ‘The Man’.”

Yates also added the following about the video:

“The director for this video was Shayne Minott at Budget Blood Productions. Seeing his style the idea was to do this all out 90s throwback, dark claymation video. Just like the ones that used to play on music TV when we were teenagers.

The story was the ideas and themes of the song itself: defeat, self-loathing, the human condition, shame and control. I wrote the basic outline of the plot and we sent him a lot of content and he came up with what we wanted.

Great to work with and considering his medium he absolutely worked his ass off and knocked it out the park.”

Kirk Windstein Says Down Are “Working On Something Really Special”

Down were supposed to return to the stage for some “NOLA” 25th anniversary shows this year, but their plans were derailed by the coronavirus pandemic. However, it looks like the band may still have something else planned. Kirk Windstein (also of Crowbar) told Revolver the following when asked about the possibility of new music:

“There’s actually been no talk of that. The main thing was trying to do the European festivals and Psycho Las Vegas [in Las Vegas]. Psycho Las Vegas was pushed back a year, and, obviously, the European festivals were all canceled. So I have no idea what’s in the future. We’re working on something really special here in the next few months that I’m excited about, and that’s all I can really say. I’m super excited to get together with all the guys again.”

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.”

Down To Perform At Psycho Las Vegas, Planning New Orleans Show

During an interview with Revolver, Down’s Kirk Windstein (also of Crowbar) talked a bit about the band’s upcoming “NOLA” 25th anniversary shows. He also confirmed that the band will perform at this year’s Psycho Las Vegas and that they are planning a show in New Orleans.

Windstein said the following:

“We’re gonna do some festivals in Europe and Psycho Las Vegas and of course a New Orleans show.”

He also added that the band will strictly remain a side project:

“…Down is back to what it started out as, which is a 100 percent complete side project. Everyone’s other bands are the priority and that’s that. I had a great talk with Phil the other day — he doesn’t even have a cell phone — but I talked with him for about 45 minutes or an hour, and we both agree that it’s a side band. But as far as I know, anything Down does, I’m included.”

Here’s Down’s current dates:

06/17-20 Copenhagen, DEN – Copenhell
06/20 Dessel, BEL – Graspop Metal Meeting
06/19-21 Clisson, FRA – Hellfest
08/14-16 Las Vegas, NV – Psycho Las Vegas

Kirk Windstein (Crowbar, Etc.) Streams Cover Of Jethro Tull’s “Aqualung”

Kirk Windstein (Crowbar, etc.) is streaming his cover of Jethro Tull’s “Aqualung.” This track is from his new solo album, “Dream In Motion,” which will be released on January 24. Windstein commented:

“‘Aqualung‘ has always been one of my favorite classic rock songs. Crowbar used to cover it. Because everything’s in D Standard, I was able to pick out the natural key that the song’s in, so it’s exactly like the Jethro Tull version. That guitar solo was named the Number 25 Greatest Solo of All Time on a readers poll in Guitar World or something. I’m really proud of the way the song came out as a whole. I think I did a good job on it. I hope that Tull’s Ian Anderson and Martin Barre get to hear it at some point.”

Kirk Windstein (Crowbar) Officially Confirms His Return Down

Kirk Windstein (Crowbar) has officially confirmed his return to Down. The band are planning to hit the road next year to celebrate the 25th anniversary of their debut album “NOLA.”

Windstein told Revolver the following about his return:

“I’m in, 100 percent. The quote from Pepper [Keenan] was, ‘If you ain’t doing it, I ain’t doing it.’ Phil [Anselmo], Pepper and Jimmy [Bower] are my three of my oldest, closest friends, so this is a no-brainer for me.”

He also added the following when asked if this reunion is permanent:

“As far as I know, I’m back in the band. Bobby Landgraf did a fantastic job, and he’s a very good friend of mine. But once again, Down is back to what it started out as, which is a 100 percent complete side project. Everyone’s other bands are the priority and that’s that. But it’s been six and a half years since I jammed with those guys, so I’m excited. It’s gonna be fun.”

So far, Down have the following dates booked:

06/20 Dessel, BEL – Graspop Metal Meeting
06/17-20 Copenhagen, DEN – Copenhell
