Made in USA. This was present to some extent on later albums, but the riffs were more varied and the songwriting more interesting so the issue was not as evident as it is here. Then again, it is not with out a heavy degree of similarity to what came before it, pushing the envelope gradually in the heaviness and grittiness department while still sticking close to home. Late Night. High Add ID3 tag: The riffs are refreshingly simple, yet heavy and crunching and solid to the core. The band masterfully combined the Album) of doom metal and hardcore punk, producing a record unlike any the music world had encountered before.
Lossless Format allows you to feel all musical elements put into the making of an album without any loss of its quality that MP3 compression brings. For those who wish to discover the live sounds in its full depth, there are DVD-Audio albums, but they are 10 times bigger than CD copies; on the other hand they have a more colorful and crisp sound.
To get an idea and an understanding of what exactly lossless format has to offer, you only have to listen to it once.

Sure, they would go on to experiment and occasionally add different flavours to their sound, but at the core this is what Crowbar is all about. Album opener "Waiting In Silence" offers some particularly memorable vocal lines.
While later albums would offer a glimmer of hope through the hardships of life, this one is all about a crushing sense of depression with no end in sight and those times where life just gets the best of you and it really feels like there is no hope. Little sense of overcoming the hardships is offered: This also is a very important album in the development of sludge metal, marking the first time a full length sludge album was released.
Along with Eyehategod and the Melvins, Crowbar is considered to be one of the founders of sludge. Yet from the depths of obscurity lies "Obedience thru Suffering," one of the more difficult of Crowbar albums to really get into, much less thoroughly enjoy. As most probably know, the whole sludge movement was essentially born out of a number of influences, one of the largest being Black Sabbath and The Melvins.
You can definitely get a grasp for that here, as the album has a tendency to simply plod along in sludgey doom with few variations. This does lead to some repetition, not to mention a fairly unspectacular listen as a whole. At least its better than the garage hardcore that "In the Name of Suffering" was in the same year. While the drum sound is certainly competent, it sometimes becomes a bit much. This was present to some extent on later albums, but the riffs were more varied and the songwriting more interesting so the issue was not as evident as it is here.
Not only that, but his performance is almost completely zapped of the gloomy emotion he would give the audience in droves in years later. The crunchy "My Agony" throws in an interesting riff during the verses but its a bit overlong.
Its only four and half minutes, but due to the lack of variations here the songs seem longer. This also takes away that unique experience Crowbar often gives with its albums, such as the thick, chunky riffs and feeling of impending doom. Crowbar have done much better in their later albums, and I can definitely recommend any of those over this one. Despite that, there are a few redeemable moments here, just not enough to really go out of my way to promote the album as a whole.
