Crowbar’s album “Sever the Wicked Hand” is both classic sounding and very, very different than before. The sound is very heavy, slow, and painful, but there is also a tone of achievement. With front man Kirk Windstein’s highly publicized new found sobriety, Crowbar’s latest album is not just forlorn, it’s victorious. You can see that in songs like “Cleanse Me, Heal Me,” “A Farewell to Misery,” and “I Only Deal in Truth.”

Crowbar’s specialty is served again and many of the songs just cut right through you to reveal your own anguish. “Sever the Wicked Hand” is destined to be one of the band’s most beloved albums yet.
