Down  


Down is essentially a New Orleans supergroup of sorts, bring together members from bands such as Pantera, Crowbar, Corrosion Of Conformity, and Eyehategod. And indeed, the band's debut album, Nola, is rooted firmly in the sludge-metal style that New Orleans bands have made famous, basically slow, southern-fried Sabbath riffs with typical Phil Anselmo vocals. As one might expect, Down has been more of an on-again, off-again project rather than a proper band, with Nola released in 1995 and the followup not coming out until seven years later. Soon after that, Anselmo basically stated that Down was finished, as he wished to divulge himself of his many bands/projects to focus on Superjoint Ritual. However, as of early 2006 the band was back in action, and in 2007 released their third album.
