Fire Down Below, a fearsome foursome that operates from Ghent (BE), formed in 2015.
In September 2016 they unleashed their debut album Viper Vixen Goddess Saint upon the world. Recorded and mixed by Tim De Gieter at Much Luv Studio (Eleanora, Brutus, Every Stranger Looks Like You, Gloria Boateng, BARST) and mastered to gritty perfection by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege in Portland, USA (Sleep, Yob, Pentagram, SUNN O))), Windhand, Black Tusk, Your Highness), the 7 tracks on Viper Vixen Goddess Saint immediately caught worldwide attention. Reviewers link Fire Down Below to powerhouse bands such as Kyuss, Truckfighters, Red Fang, Tool and Soundgarden. The band is praised for their unique sound, an exceptional blend of fuzzed-out stoner, heavy psych and 90’s grunge with added elements of spacerock and doom, while still keeping the focus on melody and powerful vocal performances.
The album caught the attention of California-based label Ripple Music. Ripple Music is home of some of the finest band in the heavy rock/stoner/psych/doom genres, such as Wo Fat, Mothership and Vokonis. In January the band and label proudly announced their partnership. Ripple Music have since re-released the debut album on cd and vinyl world-wide and will also release the follow-up album, scheduled for spring 2018.
After the release of their debut album Fire Down Below have played shows throughout Belgium and The Netherlands. Over the course of summer the band shared festival stages with international acts such as Monster Magnet, Pentagram, Mothership and Acid King.
