Down's latest release Over the Under is classic heavy metal poundage flagged by Southern stoner metal trimmings reflective of Chris Cornell and brooding guitar trails with the wattage of vintage Zach Wilde. Hell hath no fury like Down with these songs. The transitional phrases bolster electrical rai.
Down's latest release Over the Under is classic heavy metal poundage flagged by Southern stoner metal trimmings reflective of Chris Cornell and brooding guitar trails with the wattage of vintage Zach Wilde. Hell hath no fury like Down with these songs. The transitional phrases bolster electrical raises by guitarists Pepper Keenan (of Corrosion of Conformity fame) and Kirk Windstein (of Crowbar) supporting the iron weights of vocalist Philip Anselmo (of Pantera). The stealth drumming of Jimmy Bower (of Crowbar) stays focused and the bass pulls of Rex Brown (of Pantera) increase the mallet-sized thugs pumping through the songs. This is Down's third full-length album. What has become a side project for these musicians is a means for them to pay homage to their heavy metal influences and post-hardcore's majesty with smoking guitar cuts, a sepulchral resonance in the vocal registers, and haunting echoes ruling the instrument keys.
