From the southern swamps of New Orleans comes the new album from Crowbar entitled "Symmetry In Black." With their tenth studio album, the band are at their creative peak with these dozen songs that easily prove that Crowbar are one of the premier underground metal bands. The heaviness of the opener "Walk With Knowledge Wisely" and the slugging doom metal of "Symmetry In White" showcase the roots of their music. The slow burn of "Reflection Of Deceit" and the fast paced hardcore sound of "Ageless Decay" display the diversity in their music, keeping them from being placed into a specific metal category. Crowbar continue the onslaught with the screams of "Shaman Of Belief" and the pounding of "Teach The Blind To See," before closing with the four-minute instrumental "The Piety Of Self-Loathing."
