Sludgemeisters DOWN To Release Live DVD and Double Album Of Euro Tour 2005

by on Sep.25, 2010, under Rock Music News

The DVD film documents the band’s first activity following the extended hiatus that followed the cycle of second album, ‘Down II: A Bustle In Your Hedgerow’ (2002).  The band’s iconic frontman, Phil Anselmo describes the film thus; “The idea of reforming Down had been stirring in our collective guts since the Spring of 2005.  There wasn’t a member of the band who hadn’t felt the pull…we just needed to get together and jam.  It’d been four years since we’d all stood in the same room, let alone played music together.  With no record label, no publicity, no opening band, nothing (!), we decided to test ourselves by basically doing a ‘word of mouth’ 6-week tour of Europe.  Adding more fire in our bellies was that the tour would be capped off by playing an ‘unannounced guest’ opening slot on the main stage at the Download Festival.  Down had never been overseas in the band’s existence.  The film is documented footage of the tour, screw ups and sour notes included.  It’s raw and real and shows the re-rebirth of a little ‘side project’ from New Orleans that’s managed to stand the test of time for damn near two decades.”   The main feature runs for two hours and incorporates the documentary footage, interspersed with live performance tracks as follows:

Intro / Lysergic Funeral Procession / Lifer / Losing All / Rehab / New Orleans Is A Dying Whore / Ghosts Along The Mississippi / Learn From This Mistake / Underneath Everything / Temptations Wings / Something On My Side / Hail The Leaf / Lies / Perfection Of The Seed / Eyes Of The South /  Jail / Stone The Crow / Bury Me in Smoke

As well as the DVD, there’s a twin audio CD set that includes a full ‘never-before-released’ live set from that same European tour.  Tracklisting runs as follows:

CD 1
Losing All / Lifer / Lysergic Funeral Procession / Rehab / Temptations Wings / Ghosts Along the Mississippi / Learn From This Mistake / Hail the Leaf / New Orleans Is a Dying Whore

CD 2
Lies (I Don’t Know What They Say But….) / Underneath Everything / The Seed / Eyes of the South / Jail / Stone The Crow / Bury Me In Smoke
