Live: Crowbar @ The Garage, London (04/03/2014)

Listen to Crowbar. I did.

It’s the kind of thing you can ponder when in a queue that wraps itself right around the outside, head almost meeting tail in a manner reminiscent of that popular Nokia game. It moves about as slow as a round of Snake as well. Given the scene, anyone would think that this was Lamb Of God’s last hurrah. Actually it’s a welcome party, a sold-out celebration.
