An abuse of bourbon somewhere between Down, and Pantera, with heaviness in perspective, like a tar fudge filled doughnut tire."
All set up, and complete at the beginning of 2010, the parisians of FACE DOWN put on a few shows in a rock'n'roll set of mind, before entering the “Sainte Marthe Studio”, giving birth to a powerful, greasy and sweaty 5 title EP baptised "The Runaway", produced and mixed by Guillaume Mauduit (The Arss, Aqme, Comity).
By the end of summer 2010, the band puts their EP to the test, on the occasion of the "Glad Stone Fest" in Paris, where the combo defends their titles with insurance, and come out more determined than ever! FACE DOWN puts up its thrash metal/southern rock influence with neither complex nor concessions, and WILL carry their music to the depths of New Orleans!
As French band Facedown chugs through the 5 songs on their latest EP "The Runaway" the influences are glaringly apparent. The band takes their cue from the southern rock swagger of Black Label Society, the sludgy groove of Down and the aggressive thrash of Pantera. These boys tear it up with grinding teeth, clenched fists and a Jack Daniels-induced ferocity. Check'em out!
