March 30th, 2022 – New Orleans, Louisiana’s favorite sludge metal goliaths CROWBAR today unveil a Zero And Below “making of…” video clip.
Produced, mixed, and mastered by Duane Simoneaux at OCD Recording And Production in Metairie, Louisiana, Zero And Below was released via MNRK Heavy earlier this month to critical acclaim. Reverently old-school, counterbalanced by a resonant melodicism that’s stunningly mature, the record is the most unforgivably doom-driven CROWBAR record since their 1998 landmark effort, Odd Fellows Rest.
The moment you hear it, you know it’s CROWBAR. Led by Windstein, with guitarist Matt Brunson, bassist Shane Wesley, and drummer Tommy Buckley, songs like “Chemical Godz,” “It’s Always Worth The Gain,” and “Bleeding From Every Hole,” are unapologetic emotional outpourings, with a bare-knuckle resolve alongside its soul-searching vulnerability, reliably delivered with crushing heaviness. A genuine band’s band, with a wide-ranging influence across multiple genres, CROWBAR “helped draw up the sludge metal blueprints” (Kerrang!).
CROWBAR is in the midst of a US tour with Sepultura and Sacred Reich. Initially scheduled as a 2020 run, the journey commenced on March 4th, in Sacramento, California and runs through April 9th in Berkeley, California. Additional support is provided by Art Of Shock. See all remaining dates below.
