Description

Vinyl LP pressing. For nearly three decades, the name Crowbar has been synonymous with heavy. Since rising ominously from the swamplands of New Orleans in 1990, they've been hailed internationally as one of the world's foremost purveyors of crushing, melodic sludge. Crowbar's eleventh and latest album, The Serpent Only Lies, is both an affirmation of the band's staying power and a nod to their legacy. "To me, it's a fresh-sounding version of old-school Crowbar," says vocalist, guitarist and mastermind Kirk Windstein. "I intentionally went back and listened to a lot of old Crowbar stuff, like the self-titled and Broken Glass albums, to get a feel for what my mindset was 20-plus years ago. I also went back and listened to the bands that influenced Crowbar in the beginning, like Trouble, Saint Vitus, Melvins, and the first Type O Negative record. So it was kinda me doing my homework." The result is an album that stands toe-to-toe with those early Crowbar classics while maintaining the lumbering hooks of mid-period standouts like 1998's Odd Fellows Rest and 2000's Equilibrium. Bolstered by massive riffage, new songs "I Am The Storm," "Embrace The Light" and the title track explore the themes of life, loss and spirituality, respectively. "Even lyrically, the approach was a little more old-school," Windstein offers. "Some of the songs have less lyrics to let the riffs breathe a little more, which I had kind of gotten away from over the years. It was a conscious thing to go back to that."
