Origin: Sweden

Face Down  

Face Down is a post-thrash aggro-metal band, with a quite heavy wall-of-sound guitar style and angry, hardcore-ish vocals from Marco Aro. Comparisons to Pantera are valid, as well as fellow Swedes such as Transport League or Mary Beats Jane, though these guys are perhaps a shade heavier. The band broke up following Aro's decision to join The Haunted, and then reformed in 2004 after Aro served his time in The Haunted.
