Over the weekend Hellfest took over Clisson, France and absolutely destroyed the place! The lineup included huge acts such as Danzig, KISS, Gojira, Cryptopsy, Kreator, Morbid Angel, Marduk, Immortal and MANY MORE! One of the highlights of the event was the MASSIVE performance put on by the one and only DOWN! We all know how powerful this band is live, and they went all out in France this past weekend! As always, they closed their set with “Bury Me In Smoke” and then had a few surprise guests out for a special jam! Guests included High On Fire‘s Matt Pike, Incite‘s Gene Macazan, and Jason Newsted! Check out footage of the all star jam here! What a way to close the set! INSANE!
Phil Anselmo recently spoke with Amit from Metal Hammer at the Download Festival about the next EP from DOWN and Phil gave him this insight, “We are already putting together riffs, and they’re fuckin’ awesome, actually. Shit, man… For DOWN, I think we’re making, actually, some speedy headway for us, man, so I would think it would be out no later than the first couple of months of 2014.”
