Down are an interesting choice of headliner for the first day. Yes, there is no doubting that Phil Anselmo is a heavy metal legend but, to follow the theatrics of Dimmu Borgir with a set of weed-soaked stoner anthems was always going to be a tough call. Still, Anselmo and his Down brethren pull out a stunning set for an audience who soak up every weed-stained riff of the likes of “Witch Tripper” and “Lifer” while “Hail The Leaf” sums up everything that is great about Down and proves why they were the perfect way to end a great first day at Bloodstock.

Metal supergroup Down has unveiled their new track “We Knew Him Well” from their upcoming EP Down IV – Part Two, out May 13th via Down Records/ADA Music. Stereogum premiered “We Knew Him Well,” calling it “a titanic, bludgeoning deep-head-nod groove…it’s gloriously messy but locked-in in the way that only New Orleans metal bands can pull off.”
