It's good but...

I'm still waiting for Phil to put out something "heavy" like the old days. that punch you in the face stuff we grew to love.


So many long years....So worth the WAIT!! It's as if the brethren prophesied the recent flood these many months back when they recorded this. Bring the SLUDGE! Down-tuned riffs, dark production, Phil. Respects to Rex but love Bruders who adds his own: you can't NOT hear him on Witchtripper or Open Coffin. Misfortune Teller classic DOWN album-ender.

Down 4 More greatness from the kings of post Sabbath Metal!!

Since the formation of this "Supergroup" in the mid 90's, Phil, Pepper ( Coc ) Kirk ( Crowbar ) Jimmy ( Eyehategod ) and 3 different bases including Rex Brown of Pantera, have churned out some of the greatest "traditional" Heavy Metal of any other band out there. The bands popularity has always been based on word of mouth in the underground circles. ( Although Anselmo being a part of it surly doesn't hurt ).
If your already a fan of Down, you know what to expect. Pummeling riffs in the vein of classic Sabbath with the occasional curve ball of some swampy blues thrown in. For those who are really into this band, these tunes are pretty easy to tell what era they were written in. Upon early listenings, I am partial to Levitation and Misfortune Teller. Misfortune Teller particularly seems to capture the whole vibe of Down 2, while Levitation and This work is timeless seems to sound a bit more of the first album NOLA. The other tracks definitely have a feel of their most recent, "over the under" This is a KILLER Ep, I am very much looking forward to the next 3. I am hoping maybe the nest Ep's will have the diversity that epitomized Down2. That record wasn't totally well received, but, was my favorite by a mile. I absolutely LOVED "Learn from this mistake" "where i'm going" with their swampy blues theme's. Yet, that disc was well balanced with rippers like "Lysergik Funeral Procession" "Theres something on my side" And "Ghost along the Mississippi" Down2 was a stark reminder of what made bands like Sabbath and Zeppelin so great. They weren't completely locked into one sound or style. The greatest albums from that era had diversity. Don't get me wrong, I love straight up ripping Metal albums like Slayer's reign in blood, etc. But, some of the older bands took you through many emotions with their albums. A trait that is sorely lacking with most Metal Bands of the last 30 years. If your already a A fan of Down, buy it, you won't be disappointed. If your not, and you like Sabbath like trad Metal, you should like this as well. A solid effort and a solid 4 star album

Down are an all-star heavy metal side project whose original lineup consisted of members from Pantera (singer Phil Anselmo), Corrosion of Conformity (guitarist Pepper Keenan), and Crowbar (guitarist Kirk Windstein, bassist Todd Strange, and drummer Jimmy Bower). Formed in the mid-'90s when Pantera were on a brief break (between their Far Beyond Driven and The Great Southern Trendkill releases), the quartet's members had been longtime friends and decided to break up their downtime (hence their name)....
