The informal sequel to the band’s third album, “Down IV” is two separate EPs split over two years. The first part was released in 2012 and was praised as a return to form for the band built on Southern jam and doom metal. Part two would be released in 2014 and continue the work without Crowbar guitarist Kirk Windstein.
New Orleans metal band, Down, features some of the biggest names in ‘90s metal pulling from groups like Pantera, Superjoint, Crowbar, EYEHATEGOD, Corrosion of Conformity and Goatwhore. Their sound takes inspiration from metal greats like Saint Vitus and Black Sabbath but incorporates more stoner metal inspired by the band's sludge and groove roots.
