Kirk Windstein thinks KISS should stop making records

Posted by on December 22, 2014

While KISS have sold over 100 million copies of their albums worldwide over the course of their 40-year career, they’ve slowed down in recent years, only releasing three albums since 1998. That’s three too many according to Crowbar guitarist Kirk Windstein, who thinks they shouldn’t be putting out any albums any more. According to an interview […]

Crowbar kick it old school in ‘Symmetry in White’ video

Posted by on October 20, 2014

You can tell from the opening of the Crowbar’s video for “Symmetry in White,” which starts with a quote framed by fleur-de-lis that it’s going to be New Orleans-centric. The sepia-toned video features some swampy shots, pagan-looking rituals, and Kirk Windstein in a preachers robe. Also an angel, a creepy doll and menacing hooded figures and a […]

Posted by on August 18, 2014

So far, there have been three pretty hysterical “Cooking Hostile” episodes, the animated cooking show supposedly narrated by Philip Anselmo. The series, drawn and animated by Joey Siler, has  been comic gold for people that like metal and bad cooking puns, and apparently, it was enough for Anselmo himself to get involved for the fourth episode.

Kirk Windstein doesn’t want a Pantera reunion either

Posted by on June 30, 2014

Crowbar guitarist Kirk Windstein was never in Pantera, but having been in Down with Phil Anselmo for so long, he’s certainly entitled to his opinion about the band. That’s why he weighed in on whether or not he’d want there to be a reunion, perhaps brought on by Zakk Wylde jamming on Pantera’s “I’m Broken” […]

Video: Crowbar take a “Walk”

Posted by on May 30, 2014

What do you expect when looking at a Crowbar video? Well, Kirk Windstein for one. You get a lot of him in the band’s first video from Symmetry In Black. “Walk With Knowledge Wisely” is a pretty straight-ahead performance video, mostly shot with the band playing in a room with such intensity that it shatters glass.

Posted by on May 20, 2014

It’s one hell of a month for heavy sludgy music from New Orleans. In fact, this coming Tuesday, May 27th, will be one of the swampiest, riffiest sickest release dates in recent history. Both Crowbar and Eyehategod will be releasing albums next Tuesday. And while the two albums are two sides of the same coin, […]

If your day isn’t heavy enough yet, here’s a new Crowbar song

Posted by on April 8, 2014

If you’re going to walk away from a successful band to focus on your own, the end result better be worth it. But when that band is Crowbar and you’re Kirk Windstein, it’s pretty much a guarantee that it’ll be good. As soon as “Walk With Knowledge Wisely,” the first taste of their 10th album […]
