About Down

Down is an all-star heavy metal side project whose original lineup consisted of members of Pantera, Corrosion of Conformity, and Crowbar. Formed in the mid-'90s, the quartet's members had been longtime friends. The East/West label issued Down's 1995 debut, NOLA, an abbreviation for New Orleans, Louisiana, from which all its original members hailed. While many assumed that the group would specialize in over-the-top extreme metal, it contained more elements of classic rock than the member's usual bands (a prime influence of the group being Black Sabbath). March 2002 saw the release of Down's sophomore effort, Down II. Down III followed in 2007. ~ Greg Prato
