ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW IS: NEW. F*CKING. CROWBAR.
YEP! The new Crowbar album — the band’s first for E1 — has a name now, Sever the Wicked Hand. It also has a release date — February 8. And, most importantly, there’s a new song, “Cemetery Angels,” now streaming at Noisecreep.
By this point, I imagine you’ve stopped reading whatever I’m writing and started listening to the song. On the off-chance that you are still reading this, here’s my thoughts about the track after a single listen: I tend to prefer my Crowbar to be more of the “Lasting Dose” speed, and while the outro is as slow as a Juggalo’s brain, the rest is, at least by Crowbar standards, actually fairly fast. That being said, it still ROCKS, ’cause Kirk Windstein knows how to bring the riffage. And listening to the thirty-second samples already available on iTunes, I can tell that there’s gonna be plenty of songs that move at the same speed as Billy Milano chasing a salad. So, I know it sounds like I’m complaining, but I’m really not. I am, indeed, very, very stoked to hear this record in its entirety.
Check out the new song here, then come back and let us know what you think. And if you haven’t already, read the interview Vince conducted with Windstein last month, ’cause it’s a good interview, and some knowledge about the latest from Crowbar gets dropped.
