    Novelist George R.R. Martin once wrote, "The crow commands, the captive must obey."

He chatted with us about collaborating with a variety of musicians on the new album "III," working with Kurt Ballou of Converge on the production, going into debt to take out billboards for the LP and finding a dead body on his apartment steps in L.A. Plus, the exclusive premiere of a new Crowhurst track, "Medium Riff!"

    After our in-depth interview with Jay, he stuck around to help us break down the News, New Releases and What We’ve Been Listening To. We also count down our Top 5 Music Documentaries of all time and George reveals he has... an odorous relic?!

    So, take up the black with us, find a fortified position on the wall and hold your weapons at the ready. Episode 93 with Crowhurst comes for you!
