Down's Down IV — Part Two featuring "We Knew Him Well"
The New Orleans sludge-metal supergroup led by Pantera's Phil H. Anselmo and Corrosion Of Conformity's Pepper Kennan, return with their new EP Down IV — Part Two.
Down's groundbreaking music combines elements of Black Sabbath, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and everything in between, setting them apart from anything in the market today.
Anselmo tells Billboard that the six songs on Part Two have "a very metal vibe. Obviously the Black Sabbath is there, but also I feel and hear a lot of Witchfinder General, which is a band I grew up adoring in the early 80s, so I took a lot of those influences and applied them here."
He adds that "everybody contributed really, really f*cking equally" to Part Two; bassist Patrick Bruder, Anselmo says, "really stepped up and offered some awesome riffs, while guitarist Bobby Landgraf, who joined last year to replace co-founder Kirk Windstein, "came in a breathed a new energy into the band that felt really good. To have a guy like that who's been close to the band and a fan of the band come in and give his perspective on what he thinks Part Two should be was really good."
And, Anselmo adds, most of the six songs on Part Two were "really new to us" rather than leftover or rehashed riffs.
