Played at Graspop Metal Meeting 2009 / 2013



This all-star band from New Orleans started as a side project but quickly made a name for themselves with their excellent debut ‘Nola’ (1995). 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. Watch out for tracks off their 2014 EP ‘Down IV – Part II’, the next chapter in Down’s catalogue of dirty, low-down riffs and trademark Anselmo screams and growls.
