Fire Down Below (BE)

They are amp-hugging, hard-hitting, fuzz-loving, ear-splitting, riff-worshipping rock 'n rollers.

They are Fire Down Below!

Fire Down Below, a fearsome foursome that operates from Ghent (BE), first got together to riff out 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, BARST) and mastered to gritty perfection by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege in Portland, USA (Sleep, Yob, Pentagram), the 7 tracks on Viper Vixen Goddess Saint immediately turned heads worldwide. Reviewers link Fire Down Below to powerhouse bands such as Kyuss, Truckfighters, Red Fang, Tool and Soundgarden. The band received praise 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-California-based label Ripple Music, home of some of the finest band in the heavy rock/stoner/psych/doom genres, such as Wo Fat and Mothership. In January 2017 the band and label proudly announced their partnership. Ripple Music have since re-released the debut album on cd and vinyl world-wide. After the release of their debut album Fire Down Below started playing shows throughout Belgium and The Netherlands. They have shared festival stages with international acts such as Monster Magnet, Pentagram, Mothership and Acid King and got hand-picked to open for the stoner cult band Fu Manchu when they passed through Belgium on their tour.

June 2018 saw the world-wide release of Fire Down Below’s sophomore album, titled Hymn of the Cosmic Man, once again on Ripple Music. On this space-themed release, the band shows a more progressive approach to songwriting, while still maintaining all the elements that made their debut album such a success. The result is an intense 44 minute journey through the broad sonic landscape that Fire Down Below so effortlessly covers. In 2019 the band will reach further into Europe, with confirmed shows in Germany, The Netherlands and the UK, with many more to follow.

Fire Down Below is: Bert Wynsberghe - bass Jeroen Van Troyen - guitar and vocals Kevin Gernaey - guitar Sam Nuytens – drums
