I offer up the Sludge giants Crowbar. Their album Sonic Excess In Its Purest Form. Crowbar is a very influential sludge band out of the NOLA scene, their first album produced by Phil Anselmo which led to a very successful tenure on Head Banger's Ball. Crowbar has typically very brooding songs, accented by hardcore punk passages. They are also known for taking classic songs and making them heavy, notable is No Quarter, by Led Zeppelin. Their lyrics deal with suffering and addiction. This is a splendid album that has a place in all music collections, I particularly enjoy the song The Lasting Dose.
