Om koncerten

22. maj: Vi har fanget Crowbar-frontmand Kirk Windstein til en snak om koncerten – læs interviewet længere nede.

Amerikanske Crowbar sammenblander ekstremt tunge, langsomme og knugende elementer med momentvis hård og hurtig hardcore punk i deres demonstrative sludgemetal.

Om Crowbar
Crowbar blev dannet i New Orleans i slutningen af 1980’erne, men kaldte sig indledningsvist diverse andre navne – først i midten af 1991 lagde man sig fast på Crowbar. Samme år albumdebuterede bandet med “Obedience Thru Suffering”, der den dag i dag af mange stadig betragtes som gruppens ypperste udspil. Med den selvbetitlede toer fra 1993 fik Crowbar et vist internationalt gennembrud takket være singlerne “All I Had (I Gave)” og “Existence Is Punishment”. I perioden 1995-2005 udgav Crowbar yderligere seks album jævnt fordelt over årene, men herefter blev der udgivelsesmæssigt stille omkring bandet, der dog turnémæssigt ingenlunde lå på den lade side. Lige nøjagtig på seks års-dagen for “Lifesblood For The Downtrodden” (2005) gjorde gruppen omsider albummæssigt comeback med “Sever The Wicked Hand” (2011), og i 2014 fulgte “Symmetry In Black”. Sidste år udkom bandets hidtil seneste album, det meget roste “The Serpent Only Lies”. Crowbar, der betragtes som et af sludgemetal-genrens mest indflydelsesrige navne, har igennem tiden gennemlevet adskillige udskiftninger i besætningen, men sanger, rytmeguitarist og stiftende medlem Kirk Windstein holder fast og er således endnu ombord – hertil kommer, at bandets oprindelige bassist, Todd Strange, i 2016 vendte tilbage efter at have forladt gruppen tilbage i år 2000.

Interview med Kirk Windstein
What can the audience expect from the show?
“100% of Crowbar! We love playing live and always give our all to the audience!”

What merch do you bring?
“We have some new stuff. We have about six shirts, hoodie, bandana, trucker hat and a girl tank and shorts and the new vinyl (green) which includes a CD.”

Which song do you prefer performing live?
“I love so many but right now it’s “I Am The Storm” and “Scattered Pieces Lay”.”

How have your most recent concerts been?
“They have been great. The fans are always amazing.”

How would you describe your bandmates?
“They are like family. We tour so much together and all live near each other. Everyone is different in their own way, hehe.”

What do you think of Hatesphere – the other act this evening?
“We think they are awesome. Great band and great bunch of guys. They have a killer show!”

Which live act (band and/or artist) is your favorite – and why?
“I really don’t go to many shows but I prefer seeing old school bands live such as Saxon and Accept. These are bands that I grew up listening to and will always be special to me.”

What are your plans for the summer and autumn?
“The “pool” is my first thought for relaxation after three tours in a row and then back to work with our third leg of European tour.”

Anmeldercitater
“Crowbar were always more reflective. And that’s kind of what Sever The Wicked Hand is all about, corpulent down-tuned riffs and a sense of grizzled resignation articulated through Windstein’s taut songwriting and sorrowful croon.” (Rock Sound, 2011 – læs hele anmeldelsen)

“What’s different about Sever the Wicked Hand, though, is how Windstein has been able to make his band’s ninth album sound so fresh while sounding so comfortably familiar at the same time.” (PopMatters, 2011 – læs hele anmeldelsen)
