While others tune to the status quo of contrived clichĂ©s, fleeting trend, and ego, Portlandâ??s Anchor Down sets their course left of the dial, where raw sincerity and uninhibited grit still holds worth. Independent in the truest sense, the quartetâ??s raucous, basement–bound, barbed hook anthems and down–to–earth demeanors have begun to captivate and convert audiences in both their own North Western territory and elsewhere. Anchor Downâ??s debut, Steel To Dust, is a must have for those who despite a multitude of tribulations, still believe in the catalyzing potential of contemporary punk rock.
