Sophomore Record from Stoner-Psych Squad Sails Into Outer Space; New Video, "Saviour of Man", Debuts

Fire Down Below
Belgium desert rock band Fire Down Below will release its new album, Hymn of the Cosmic Man, on June 8 via Ripple Music (Mothership, BANG!). The surging quartet -- once hailed as "a stoner version of Tool" -- created the LP as an outer space concept album detailing "a single soul against an unnamed threat to mankind." Hymn of the Cosmic Man was mixed for maximum trajectory by Brad Boatright (Windhand, SUNN O))), Bell Witch) and is the follow up to Fire Down Below's 2016 debut, Viper, Vixen, Goddess, Saint.

On Hymn of the Cosmic Man, Fire Down Below trades the hot desert winds of its debut for the cold desolation of outer space. "Saviour of Man", the first track released from the album, debuts in the form of a music video which builds on the album's cosmic concept. See and hear "Saviour of Man" at this location.

Fire Down Below "Saviour of Man" (official music video)
“We had this background story that guided us during the songwriting process,” explains bassist Bert Wynsberghe. “Yet we left it somewhat vague so that it wouldn’t limit us and we could still pursue ideas that were more ‘out there’. That really worked for us as we were able to explore new sonic territories. We’re excited to see what reactions we might get.”

In its short, but effectual time as a band, the sound of Fire Down Below has drawn comparison to international stalwarts such as Truckfighters, Red Fang and 1000mods, and now with Hymn of the Cosmic Man, the band shifts into overdrive, building on its background while establishing its own singular identity. From the swelling, album openers ‘Red Giant’ and ‘Ignition/Space Cruiser’, to the spectacularly progressive closer ‘Adrift In A Sea Of Stars’, Fire Down Below steps up and takes flight powered by soaring riffs, surging rhythms and a skyrocketing, singular vision.

Track listing:

1.) Red Giant
2.) Ignition / Space Cruiser
3.) Saviour of Man
4.) The Cosmic Pilgrim
5.) Nebula
6.) Ascension
7.) Adrift In A Sea Of Stars

Fire Down Below features Bert Wynsberghe (bass), Jeroen Van Troyen (guitar, vocals), Kevin Gernaey (guitar) and Sam Nuytens (drums). Follow the band on Facebook and Instagram.

"Rock n’ roll ain’t dead…stoner, classic, psyche, late 60s/early 70s style, etc., you just gotta look for the good stuff. Fire Down Below is pound for pound one of the best the style has to offer in current times." - TEETH OF THE DIVINE
