Last Wednesday (May 2nd), Patrick Musumeche of Full Metal Rock conducted an interview with DOWN‘s lead vocalist Phil Anselmo, who was asked what fans can expect from thier recently completed six-song EP.
His response was,
I would say you can expect a very realistic product, very stripped down. Nothing flashy. Straight to the point… really just Down music. If you liked the first record, the demos… something like that… This record, we’re pretty dead straight and honest and on the money as far as making it as simple and direct as possible and I think we did that. . . It has that practice-room vibe to it. We didn’t really try and fucking slick it out and anything. We went the more raw route, as far as an approach. Once again, you’ve gotta hear it for yourselves and you guys will be better judges than myself at this point.
Tentatively due for release at the end of this summer, the EP will be DOWN‘s first recording since 2007’s “Down III: Over the Under“.
