DOWN / Down IV: Part I - The Purple E.P (2012)


DOWN return to their roots for this 6 track EP.  The 'Part I' refers to their plan to release IV in a series of E.Ps over the next few years.
It's concrete heavy as you'd expect, with the same kind of slab heavy blues / doom / sludge riffs they’re known for; you know the ones that aren't a million miles away from a good Black Sabbath album.  Amongst all the clones it's the high level of musicianship that raises this one high in the air.  They aren't called a supergroup for nothing.

Songs of Note: Witchtripper; Misfortune Teller
