1989. That's 27 long years ago. Countless memories. Some still vivid, most just a blur. The one constant thing has been my focus and desire. The same vision I had in '89 is still burning strong in my head. Possibly stronger than ever. When you put this much blood, sweat and tears into something you can never look back. Fueled by the down-tuned sludge of the Melvins and the over-the-top aggression of Peter Steele's Carnivore, I set out to create my own beast and Crowbar was born. The band's sound was labeled Doom-Core by the European press shortly after the debut release of OBEDIENCE THRU SUFFERING. I found it to be quite fitting then and still do honestly. Crowbar have released 10 full length cd's, the second selling over 100,000 units worldwide. We threw in a live EP and a few compilations for good measure and that's where we stand today. Anyone who knows Crowbar is familiar with the numerous label and line-up changes over the years. I couldn't be more happy with the group of guys in our current lineup. In terms of musicianship, loyalty and friendship, this is our strongest lineup to date. Period.

Featuring members of various heavy hitting NC metal acts, these 5 guys have already been establishing themselves in the NC metal scene for many years...formerly all spread across the state, the members found themselves all based in Raleigh and leaped at the opportunity to get a project going...Datura likes to be a composite of everything that is cool about metal and it's subgenres, from thrash, to doom, from black metal to djent, death metal to hardcore, their influences are vast thus giving Datura an interesting and we like to think original sound...but we suppose you will have to experience it for yourself....
