Published Mar 17, 2014As previously reported, bluesy sludgesters Down wrapped up recording sessions for an upcoming EP back in December, and now the NOLA greats have unveiled the first stirring taste from the set: "We Knew Him Well."
What can we say, you know what you're getting when you hear Down. The song is layered with boggy, detuned doom grooves, heat-scorched twin-guitar melodies, and scratchy, half-crooned lines from Phil Anselmo that are both tuneful and menacing. It's a devastator, and you can stream it down below courtesy of Stereogum.
"We Knew Him Well" comes from the band's forthcoming Down IV – Part Two, which lands May 13.
