Down

Post by Agonistes on Thu Aug 27, 2009 8:08 pm

The sludge metal super group known as Down.
Phil Anselmo, Pepper Keenan, Kirk Windstein, Rex Brown, and Jimmy Bower.

This band is so important to me personally, I love them so much. They're even more important to me than Weedeater (which has been a huge influence on me). Bluesier than a lot of sludge bands out there, they have a very widely distributed style. Easily, favorite album Bustle In Your Hedgerow.

Discuss.

Nottt a huge fan. Seeing 'em in a week or so, though. Think it'll at least be a good show (melvins and down will make sure of that if all else fails).

Better than Weedeater? You cant beat Dixie Dave, you are wrong.

Phil Anselmo is a pretentious fuck that can only make sub par music and who deserves to be beaten to death.

That is all.

Wow. Thanks guys.
Yeah, if I'd known about it I'd have stayed in Missouri a week or two longer. Down was playing in Kansas city with Weedeater and The Melvins opening for them. I never said they were better than Weedeater, just more important to me.

Decapo, you are wrong. Phil Anselmo is a spectacular musician, he has a ridiculous vocal range. He is pretentious, though.

I'll concur with Morgan here. He may be pretentious fuck, but he has proven to be a very good artist and has helped out bands more than many other people in the scene.

I've only ever listened to the first album once or twice because Kirk Windstein was in the band. I prefer Crowbar when it comes to the NOLA sound. Reminds me I need to get more Crowbar!

Regardless of the man's demeanor. He is a good musician, he has demonstrated this many, many times, calling his work with Pantera or Down sub par is pretty shitty in my opinion. I don't include Superjoint Ritual because I actually do believe that band to be sub par.

I like NOLA, but I really think Bustle in Your Hedgerow is their best.
Yeah, I need to get more Crowbar as well, I only have Sonic Excess...

Lets look at his bands:
Pantera - shit
Superjoint Ritual - boring
Necrophagist - Turned this band into shit
Down - shit
There are a few more but I haven't heard them and I don't care to.

Pantera is not shit.
Superjoint Ritual is pretty mediocre
His work with Necrophagist was awesome.
Down is a great band.

What exactly do you hate so much about him?
