Down IV - Part 2

by Down

Released on Roadrunner Records

Despite the departure of founding member Kirk Windstein, the second of a four part EP sees New Orleans' finest continuing where they left off on the first instalment.

Riff after heavy riff courtesy of Pepper Keenan and new guitarist Bobby Landgraf crash throughout each song and vocalist Phil Anselmo still sings like a man possessed.

Highlights include opener 'Steeple' which evokes the spirit of classic Pentagram and 'We Knew Him Well...', which would have slotted in on the band's classic first album NOLA.

Down still sound vital as when they first started with their Sabbath worshipping jams and long may they continue!
