What should you listen to this week? When I sat down with Nick Augusto from Trivium at Heavy MTL [interview here] a few weeks ago, I asked him for a musical urge and here is what he had to say.
Lately, I’ve been listening to Down a lot, especially the second album, “Down II: A Bustle in Your Hedgerow”. That’s the first thing that comes to mind right now. The music rules, I love the lyrics. It’s real, it’s not a bullshit metal band and it just sounds good to me.
“Down is an American heavy metal supergroup 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. 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 to be released on September 18, 2012 entitled Down IV Part I.” – source : Wikipedia
