Tonight in live music: Crowbar at State Theatre

The seminal New Orleans metal act hits town this Mon., Dec. 1

A band that’s been hailed as one of the most influential to come out of the New Orleans metal scene, Crowbar pushes a mud-caked Southern-crushed marriage of sludge, stoner and doom sounds full of drawn-out roars and distortion-buzzing guitars that has spanned two decades and 10 albums; this tour supports 2014 latest, Symmetry in Black, which earned high marks from respected metal site and perhaps less expectedly, Support from Unearth, Black Crown Initiate, and Rise 2 Brutality.

6 p.m. doors, State Theatre, St. Petersburg, $18.

Check out a few Crowbar videos below...
