CROWBAR recently entered the studio to begin recording their new album for an early 2001 release via E1 Music.

CROWBAR will re-release three of its influential records — "Crowbar", "Live +1" and "Time Heals Nothing" — on October 5, 2010. These three albums are the band’s core titles and have influenced many of today's major metal acts, including LAMB OF GOD and HATEBREED. With each title originally being released in the early Nineties, this will be the first time all three records will be widely available in stores.

WARBEAST's debut album, "Krush The Enemy", was released on April 27 via Philip Anselmo's (DOWN, PANTERA) Housecore Records. The record features ten tracks covering a wide range of metal terrain aimed squarely at the neck-snapping headbanger in the front row.

WARBEAST features RIGOR MORTIS vocalist Bruce Corbitt, GAMMACIDE guitarist Scott Shelby, GAMMACIDE/DEVILFIST bassist Alan Bovee and DEMONSEED drummer Joe Gonzalez.

haarp's brand new album, "The Filth", will be released on November 23. Produced by Housecore label owner Philip Anselmo, "The Filth" is described in a press release as "an ugly, oppressive journey into heavy metal." Famed artist and tattoo master Paul Booth created the artwork for the new CD.

haarp formed in 2005 when members of several NOLA acts came together in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
