Sludgecore – “Coarse” perfectly sums up Crowbar’s sound – of course, we mean this is the most positive way possible. Brutal guitars, rattling riffs and bloodcurdling roaring noises have always been this New Orleans-based band’s trademark sound which is fronted by Kirk Windstein. The name says it all. Every song is a literal crowbar covered in rust, forcing its way towards our eardrums. When the band was founded in 1989, they truly set new standards with their sound. Their debut album “Obedience Thru Suffering” was followed by eleven more masterpieces, tearing down everything that stood in their way. After a variety of Full Force shows, it’s only logical that Crowbar now also travels to the City of Iron.
