5.0 out of 5 stars
Phil and crew return after 7 years and do it with style., 28 Mar 2002
Out of a barn titled 'nodferatu's lair', on the outskirts of New Orleans, members of Pantera, Crowbar and Corrosion Of Conformity put pen to the next installment of Down. Orginally started as just a side project of guys who wanted to do their own music, uneffected by the industry. Each member of Down has vast amounts of experience and this shines. Recorded in 28 days, Down II is a pure rock album. Pepper Keenan (Corrosion Of Conformity) lays down guitar work simular to the works of Iommi and Robert Page. Phil uses his age and his own experience, to produce vocal ranges that walk hand in hand with the blues style. This is an album that can touch every emotion of a person, songs are are not thrown at you. They're placed in front of you and offered, and when you hear this you will take it. So in essence if you like rock or metal music, and want to hear what real deal is, this is it. The big question is it better then Nola? Down's first album. Yes, 16 tracks of true rock.
