Fire Down Below simmers with an intoxicating blend of stoner rock and alternative metal. The subterranean riffs simmer into molten grooves as the commanding chorus lines erupt into a fiery explosion of hook-laden ecstasy.

If you’re into thick, fuzzed-out riffs, forceful vocals and a good slab of stoner rock, you surely need this album in your collection, placed right in between your favourites from Queens Of The Stone Age, Kyuss and Fu Manchu.”
MERCHANTS OF AIR
“Everything about this release is brilliant, the artwork, the vocals, the atmosphere. Fire Down Below has created a true work of art which all fans of the genre need to hear, so check it out.”
Initially self-released last September and offering up an exceptional melee of fuzzed-out stoner rock, heavy psych and 90s grunge, it didn’t take long for the Ghent-based foursome to catch the ear of California-based record label Ripple Music. “Chock full of ambience-inducing depth and massively monstrous pedal-driven guitar pyrotechnics […] Viper Vixen Goddess Saint will easily find placement on several ‘Best Of 2016’ year-end lists and much deservedly so for this is an ideally, stand-alone opus.” (Metal Nexus)
Home to some of the finest acts in recent years to emerge from a freshly unearthed ‘Realm of Heavy’ – Wo Fat, Mothership, Vokonis, Steak et al – with the arrival of Fire Down Below at Ripple Music serving as a glowing endorsement of their sheer quality, it also plants a marker firmly in the sand and investment in plenty more exciting things to come. Already drawing comparisons with albums by Kyuss, Truckfighters, Red Fang and Soundgarden, following the worldwide release of Viper Vixen Goddess Saint this summer, the band will head back into the studio later this year to record a much-anticipated follow-up, slated for release in spring 2018.
Recorded and mixed by Tim De Gieter (Eleanora, Brutus, Gloria Boateng) at Much Luv Studio and mastered to perfection by Brad Boatright (Sleep, Yob, Pentagram, Windhand) at Audiosiege in Portland, USA, Fire Down Below’s Viper Vixen Goddess Saint is released worldwide on 23rd June 2017 via Ripple Music.

I love the fusing of Pink Floyd and sludge metal grooves on this album. That description is true, but leaves out the crafty songwriting and personal touch inherent in the songs. Recommended. Tim Halbur

SGT Thunderhoof has become one of my favourite bands…..ever. And if I was held at gun point and asked which was my favourite albums from them, it would be this one, Ride of the Hoof. I listen to ST a lot but my go-to album is this one. If I’m not careful, I don’t give the other ST albums a fair go and that would just be depriving me of the greatness of all their other awesome tunes. With only a limited number of hours in the day, this posses quiet a conundrum. Harry Harrison

Very impressive heavy, psyche rock! So glad I’ve discovered this band. I love the blend of heavy, doomy Sabbathian riffs with the echoey transcendental vocals. This album is a gem in my collection and gets played frequently. I’d say these guys are one of the best rock bands in existence today and they’re only getting better. Highly recommended! 8.5+/10.
