Band Spotlight: Crowbar

Posted by Morgan Y Evans - Walking Bombs on Tuesday, January 15, 2013 at 10:42 AM (PST)

New Orleans’ Crowbar are an underground metal institution. There may be much newer bands on the block but Crowbar’s 20 years (and counting) sludge reign always deserves praise. Kirk Windstein’s gruff vocals and abyss dredging riffs are pure, scarred and weathered, yet remain potent. From stunning the world with the low end of “All I Had (I Gave)” back in the day to penning maybe the best doob-friendly riff ever in metal this side of Black Sabbath (“Planets Collide”), Kirk has kept it real. He even manages to also keep Down and Kingdom Of Sorrow original as well without watering down the Crowbar brand. Horns!!! (Pic by R.Weiss)

Prong adds Crowbar and Cradle of Filth bassists to tour

Posted by jessepac on Thursday, May 17, 2012 at 1:50 PM (PST)

Prong is currently in the midst of a short UK and European tour celebrating the 20th anniversary of their landmark Beg To Differ album.  Joining mainman Tommy Victor and drummer Alexei Rodriguez are bass players Matt Brunson of Crowbar and former Cradle of Filth bassist Dave Pybus.

Tommy Victor explained the presence of not one but two well know bassists.

“Since Tony Campos (who has been touring with the band and played on Carved Into Stone) is touring with Soulfly, we’ve had to tour with other bass players. Everyone who has toured with us so far has been fantastic and brought their own personal style to Prong. Phil Zeller from Toxic Holocaust did the Crowbar tour. Jason Rapesi who has played with Stone Sour did a few shows with us before that. We were heading to Europe and the guy we had couldn’t do it in the eleventh hour. Rather than cancel, our friend Matt Brunson from Crowbar stepped in and learned the entire Beg To Differ album in a day and a half! Then we found out that Dave Pybus who has played with Cradle of Filth, was going to be the tech on the tour. As it turned out, Dave is a massive PRONG fan! He learned some of the other songs and has been joining Alexei and I onstage every night. Now we have two great bass players each night! This tour has been a blast!”

Prong will resume tearing up the road in the US this July for a string of shows with the legendary Maryland Rockers Clutch.

How many of you Metal Rioters out there have gone to your local record store of choice and picked up a new metal album solely based on the art that graces its cover? I have found many a hidden gems and a few utter disappointments but there are few things greater in this world than gently cracking open the liner notes for the first time as the smell of ink and paper washes over you.

In the world of iTunes and Pandora, the art form that is the album cover is slowly dying. But we’re here to remind  you that in the world of heavy metal, the art of the album cover is alive and well! So each Tuesday we’ll present to you the best album covers of the week to declare what we all already know – Heavy Metal is art.

So welcome to another episode of: KICK ASS ALBUM COVERS OF THE MONTH!!! (insert blistering guitar shred here). It was an interesting week watching Stratovarius “Elysium” (Edel Music) battling it out with Defiled “In Crisis” (Season of Mist) but ultimately Stratovarius came out on top.

We missed the first few months of 2011 so we are now giving you the opportunity to let us know what the Album Covers of the Month should be. This week we’re heading back to February. For a look at the Top 4, head on over here and make sure to VOTE.
