Revocation, Havok, Armed For Apocalypse
“1989. That’s 24 long years ago. Countless memories. Some still vivid, most just a blur. The one constant thing has been my focus and desire. The same vision I had in ’89 is still burning strong in my head. Possibly stronger than ever. When you put this much blood, sweat and tears into something you can never look back. Fueled by the down-tuned sludge of the Melvins and the over-the-top aggression of Peter Steele’s Carnivore, I set out to create my own beast and Crowbar was born.
The band’s sound was labeled Doom-Core by the European press shortly after the debut release of Obedience Thru Suffering. I found it to be quite fitting then and still do honestly. Crowbar have released 9 full length cd’s, the second selling over 100,000 units worldwide. We threw in a live EP and a few compilations for good measure and that’s where we stand today. Anyone who knows Crowbar is familiar with the numerous label and line-up changes over the years. I couldn’t be more happy with the group of guys in our current lineup. In terms of musicianship, loyalty and friendship, this is our strongest lineup to date. Period.”
