Down is essentially a New Orleans supergroup of sorts, bring together members from bands such as Pantera, Crowbar, Corrosion Of Conformity, and Eyehategod -- indeed, the members past and present comprise a veritable who's who in Southern/sludge metal. The group originated as a side project and in reality the gaps between recordings were largely due simply to the members having other commitments, though in recent years this has become the main band for many of those involved.
