CROWBAR picture
Crowbar is a sludge metal band from New Orleans in Louisiana, with a sound characterised by extremely slow, low-keyed, hardcore and brooding songs.

Formed in 1990, Crowbar had its first incarnation as Aftershock, formed in 1988. Changing its name to Wrequiem in 1989 and again quickly to The Slugs, Crowbar emerged as one of the pioneers of sludge metal music.

Crowbar took its name from the Crowbar group in NOLA (New Orleans), Kirk Windstein went on to pioneer slow and heavy music with a unique vocal style. Their first album, "Obedience Through Suffering" was released in 1991, but failed to achieve notoriety. By 1993's self-titled (Crowbar) album, personal friend Phil Anselmo (Pantera, Down, and Superjoint Ritual among others) produced the record, which eventually led to national promotion on MTV's Headbanger's Ball. Phil sang back up on a few tracks and sang background on "Broken Glass" which rounded out the anthems "All I

CROWBAR Obedience Thru Suffering

Album · 1991 · Sludge Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
UMUR
"Obedience Thru Suffering" is the debut full-length studio album by US, New Orleans based sludge metal act Crowbar. The album was released through Grind Core International in September 1991. It wasn´t an album that gained them international attention (that would come with the next couple of albums), but it did put them on the map. Crowbar was formed in 1989 under the Slugs monicker, but changed their name to the current one in 1990. They are often refered to as one of the seminal sludge metal acts.

Stylistically the music on "Obedience Thru Suffering" is a combination of crushingly heavy doomy riffs and rhythms, and the aggression of hardcore (especially the vocals point in the direction of the latter style). The material is very basic vers/chorus structured and solely feature basic instrumentation of bass, guitars, drums, and vocals. If the heavy music didn´t convey it, the depressive lyrics dealing with pain, loss, betrayel, and other dark human emotions and actions, make sure that the listening experience is bleak beyond bleak. When Kirk Windstein sings it´s like being dragged into a dark hole of depression and despair. He is a very expressive and passionate vocalist, who is able to convey both aggression and despair through his raw yet still melodic tinged vocals.

The material on the 10 track, 43:00 minutes long album are generally well written and quite consistent in style and quality, and there are few standout tracks but a couple of tracks into the album things start to flow together a bit too much. The tracks simply sound too much the same. It´s not a major issue as there are no bad quality tracks featured on the album, but "Obedience Thru Suffering" surely could have prospered from more variation between tracks.

"Obedience Thru Suffering" features a fairly well sounding and very heavy sound production, which is raw and powerful, and suits the music well. So "Obedience Thru Suffering" is in many ways a very promising and for the time rather original sounding debut release, and while the songwriting could have been more varied, and it´s a slight issue that it isn´t, I still think a 3.5 star (70%) rating is deserved.

Sludge metal has had it's roots particularly deep ever since the mid-late 80's. Bands formed in '88 - '91 began releasing albums throughout the 90s, inspired by the sound of Washington-based sludge predecessors The Melvins and particularly the albums Gluey Porch Treatments and Ozma. Being an almost solely American scene in it's early stages, sludge metal began springing up mainly in Louisiana, specifically the New Orleans area with it's bustling and diverse music scene. One of the more prominent bands of this area are Crowbar, who themselves released their debut Obedience Thru Suffering in 1991, preceded only shortly by New Orleans peers Eyehategod by about a year.

It took Crowbar a few albums to get going, though it's contested as to which album it was where the band had made their mark. Obedience Thru Suffering, although highly acclaimed and extremely good, was more or less a tribute to the Melvins. I hasten to say the band's self-titled was where the band just kept getting better and better (sans Time Heals Nothing, not a fan). The bands zenith is arguable yes, but I'd like to think it's 1996's Broken Glass.

Broken Glass is quite the experience. Packed with raw emotion and power, this is album is both a return to basics and inversely and improvement. The album sort of incorporates doom elements on some of the slower tracks, as well as featuring more tuned-down instruments than those on prior albums. It's honestly a unique experience listening to the cohesion of the instruments, even though they each have their own unique recording style. The drums don't sound booming, on the contrary their more akin to a garage-rock style. This is almost amusing (though not mock-worthy) to a certain degree, as the guitars are loud and booming, and the bass is one of the most audible instruments on the album as they both crunch out some of the most cantankerously unyielding riffs that grab you by the balls in the most wonderfully violent way. It's so strange because the album puts you in the sort of stranglehold where you can't just stop listening, but it's consensual on both sides. A strange fact it may be, but a fact it is.

If you are a fan of sludge or really hardcore material in general, I'd say this is the cream-of-the-crop when it comes to Crowbar. Go wild!

Whilst the Melvins' pioneering style of sludge metal tended to be a little tongue in cheek, Crowbar's self-titled album does a stellar job of reconfiguring it to offer something more grimly serious. Kirk Windstein's performance on lead vocals is a standout feature - the man sounds like he is in absolute agony as he yells, but yells nonetheless, which really helps create an atmosphere of tension and agony. Phil Anselmo's production further teases out this aspect of the band's sound, and offers backing vocals here and there - and it's a credit to Windstein's style that Anselmo's one of the few vocalists who could really match his fury.

Also, there's a really killer cover of Led Zep's No Quarter.

..Shadow of a Down...

Crowbar released their debut album (which was produced by Phil Anselmo) in 1991. Coming out of the New Orleans metal-scene, the band is known for a slow, dark & groove-metal style. They haven't have the same commercial success as fellow New Orleans band Down (Crowbar frontman Kirk Windstein plays in Down), nevertheless Crowbar have had a huge influence on the trademark New Orleans sludge-metal sound. Sever the Wicked Hand is Crowbars first album after a six year hiatus, and it sees the band back in peak condition.

The album kicks off with "Isolation (desperation)", which is a really dirty, heavy and groovy track. It serves the album well as an opener, and it's hard not to bang your head!

The second track Server The wicked Hand continuous the heavy groove from the opener. Opening up with a thrashy intro that leads back into the awesome trademark groove that is Crowbar.

Liquid Sky & Cold Black Earth is a slow & dark doom-metal track, and it sounds like something out of the Paradise Lost songbook. It's so heavy, that it feels like, the whole weight of the world is placed upon you. I kept seeing pictures of a long and grinding battle between two foes, who just wouldn't surrender and kept pounding and pounding in a never ending battle.

Fourth track "Let Me Mourn" gets back in the groove (pun intended). With an almost Alice in Chains vocal-harmony, it's a haunting and beautiful song.

After the first four tracks, I had to stop, and go back and listen to them again - That's how great I think they are! I'm not going to cover rest of the album track by track. Instead I'm just going to advice you to get this! Crowbar brings such heavy sludge-doom to the table, it it hard not to bow down in admiration. The music is tight, goddamn heavy and technical! If you ever doubted wether Crowbar could make their ninth record a good one, I have to say, this can stand up against the best of sludge-albums!
