CROWBAR

SLUDGE USA

Once known as the Slugs, New Orleans’ CROWBAR (Matt Brunson , Tommy Buckley, Todd Strange and the mighty Kirk Windstein) delivers some heavy and down to Earth sludge/doom metal with traces of some hardcore moments (some even call it “sludgecore”) and bellowing vocals and that has drawn comparisons both vocally and musically to Pantera, the Melvins, and Tad over the years. If that appeals to you, or you’d like to hear a heavier version of Sabbath with a barrel chested bearded axeman on vocals instead of Ozzy Osbourne, you should clearly check them out. If you don’t know them already (shame on you!), this is your new favourite new band!
