Crowbar Live: With Full Force

Having punished audiences for over 15 years now, a live DVD release is more than appropriate. While noticeably absent of tracks from Crowbar’s debut, Obedience Through Suffering, songs from their self-titled release onwards get fair attention and the videos for a number of tracks spanning their career are also included. However, the live set itself is a little skimpy — for a group with so many releases including more than eight tracks couldn’t have hurt. The sound mix is questionable, with the vocals pushed extremely high, and front-man Kirk Windstein’s performance leaves something the be desired. None the less, the 5.1 mix makes it slightly more tolerable, so a decent sound system is preferable if you plan to give this one a shot. (Candlelight)
