2020 Best of Metal: #15 Kirk Windstein-Dream in Motion

Release date: January 24, 2020

Origin: New Orleans, Louisiana

Personnel: Kirk Windstein-vox/guitar/bass, Duane Simoneaux-drums

I’ll admit that I was one of the dudes who was kind of upset when Kirk decided to leave Down and go back fulltime to Crowbar. But, looking back, he’s really kicked ass on the Crowbar albums he’s released since then. When I first heard that he was releasing a solo album, I kind of wondered what the point would be. Crowbar is his baby, after all. Does he get all of his creative energy out through that entity? I guess not. Because this solo album has a distinctive sound all it’s own. Sure, it’s still the same voice and guitar sound. But, this is more introspective and gentler Kirk than what gets presented in Crowbar. This is just a wonderfully melancholy release. Cheer to Kirk for continually pushing himself into these new areas.
