Biography

Celebrating 25 years of NOLA

This all-star band from New Orleans started out as a side project but quickly made a name for themselves with their excellent debut ‘Nola’ (1995). They also provided one of the highlights to our 2009 and 2013 editions. New releases have always been few and far between due to the members’ busy schedules with their respective main bands but with such a stellar line-up it’s well worth the wait. With three founding members still in place - charismatic former Pantera frontman Phil Anselmo, Pepper Kennan (C.O.C.) and Jimmy Bower (Eyehategod) – Down are seasoned professionals whose natural habitat is the live stage. The line-up is completed by Goatwhore’s Pat Bruders and Bobby Landgraf (Honky). To date, their 2014 EP ‘Down IV – Part II’ marks the last chapter in Down’s catalogue of dirty, low-down riffs and trademark Anselmo screams and growls so with no new material on the way your best option is to come and see these titans deliver the goods live.
