Crowbar - Lifesblood For The Downtrodden (Candlelight) - Back
Finally, Crowbar is back with their down-tuned heaviness after four year since their last album. “Lifesblood For The Downtrodden” should make every one of their fans pleased it was worth the wait. Their metalcore sludge fills this disc up to the brim with weighty riffs, pounding bass, and rhythmic drums. As always with Crowbar these heavy riffs will put you into a metal trance. Picture everything they have done before, with appropriate progression, with present day production quality…this is Crowbar with a modern metal crunch! The whole disc is at least decent, so you don’t have to worry about a bad track from these guys. There are various musicians that contribute to this CD. It was produced by Rex Brown (Pantera) and Warren Riket (Corrosion Of Conformity), along with performances from Rex, Craig Nunenmacher, and Sid Montz. I can’t think of anything that needs improvement, this is a good, solid, metal album. “Lifesblood For The Downtrodden” is what you should expect from a band like Crowbar. They have experience and ability to their benefit.
