Crowbar Sonic Excess In Its Purest Form on Limited Edition Colored 180g LP
Colored Copies Are Limited / Call To Confirm Colored Copies Are Still Available
Since their formation in 1989, New Orleans underground metal-sludge legends Crowbar have profoundly influenced an entire generation of metal acts the world over. Fueled by the down-tuned sludge of the Melvins and the over-the-top aggression of Peter Steele's Carnivore, the band's sound was labeled doom-core by the European press shortly after the release of their 1991 debut Obedience Thru Suffering.
In celebration of the band's 25th Anniversary Back On Black Records is reissuing two classic gems from Crowbar's heralded back catalog - 1998's Odd Fellows Rest and 2001's Sonic Excess in its Purest Form - on vinyl in 2015!
Crowbar's seventh studio effort follows the path of what the band have always been known for...heavy, down-tuned, extremely thick and slow metal of the highest order. That's the way the band has been doing it for years and they continue to do so. Album standout, "The Lasting Dose," comprises all of the best attributes of the band in a nutshell and truly lives up to the record's fitting title. If you're looking fat sludgy metal...look no further!
