Feels a bit sometimes like I have been stuck in a tray, where the tones will repeat itself. It's a bit like that it has been with my posts recently and it will probably be so a few more days, yes! I will break the pattern soon, but not quite yet, too much good stuff in the pipeline. Some posts, or rather fragments of an upcoming post lie and wait, including today's tune. It has been in the cave and potholing a little bit and when I read a blog entry from Steelgarden, I became eager to pick it up it today.
Down is an American sludge metal band that formed in 1991 in New Orleans, Louisiana. The band's current lineup consists of vocalist Phil Anselmo, guitarist Pepper Keenan, guitarist Kirk Windstein, bassist Pat Bruders and drummer Jimmy Bower. Since their formation, Down has gone on hiatus twice. To date, Down has released three studio albums, NOLA (1995), Down II: A Bustle in Your Hedgerow (2002), and Down III: Over the Under (2007). Since 2008, the band has been working on new material, which will result in four separate EPs instead of an album; the first, entitled Down IV Part I – The Purple EP, was released on September 18, 2012. The band plans to release a series of EPs over the next few years.
Todays tune "Witchtripper" is taken from Down IV Part I – The Purple EP, which is the first EP. It is the first album featuring bassist Pat Bruders due to the departure of former bassist Rex Brown in 2011.
