REVIEWS

Zware Metalen, written by Ramon van der Heijden, 90/100

"With this debut Fire Down Below deliver a rare gem in the stoner rock genre. What a great new promising band for the Benelux and all of Europe! [...] With great respect for their predecessors they succeed in making their own mark on the genre."

The Evil Engineer review, written by Bill Goodman

"I throughly enjoyed this album from the moment i hit play. The beat, the grooves, and the riffs are some of the best i've heard in awhile."

The Metal Nexus, written by Dragon

"Chock full of ambience-inducing depth and massively monstrous pedal-driven guitar pyrotechnics, The Mammoth serves as the ideal aural mission statement for what Fire Down Below are all about: controlled sonic chaos and absolutely stunning executions of adrenalized excitement. “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."

Daredevil Records review (Music: 9/10, Sound 8/10)

"Fuzz without end! A must for stoner fans!"



Doomspeakers review, written by Will

"Fire Down Below have all the ingredients for a proper desert brew. Don’t let anyone ever tell you there aren’t any deserts in Belgium. It just can’t be true – not when bands like Fire Down Below are producing albums like Viper Vixen Goddess Saint. There’s deserts. There’s guitars. There’s peyote too."

Merchants of Air review

"You surely need this album in your collection, placed right in between your favorites from Queens Of The Stone Age, Kyuss and Fu Manchu."

Track Name: Through Dust and Smoke
I don't wanna hear the news
Shut your mouth before you speak
If I don't hear it it's not real
The less you know the less you feel
Shut up

High above the trees I'll fly
From a mountain I will fall
Searching for the promised land
Then buy a ticket stand in line
Shut up

I find this hard to tell
Jumping down the wishing well
Soon I'm going to explode
Before I get to take control
Track Name: Roadburner
They call me the roadburner
'Cause I'm driving day and night
People guess my name
But no one ever gets it right
Now the road becomes my mistress
How I love her sweet caress
She's the only one who listens
When I'm making sense

I never stop

Why did you just have to smoke me
Like I was your last cigarette
And the sad thing is I liked it
When you sucked me dry
I see a hobo eating roadkill
With a vulture by his side
Some say we live the life we earned
In former lives

I never stop

Why do you want to drag my body home?
Roadburner!

You're a viper, you're a vixen
You're a goddess, you're a saint
Through the desert, in my half-dreams
All of which are so unreal
Every second on the highway
Every mile, you make me sweat
I'm your ashtray, I'm your lapdog
And I cannot understand

Why do you want to drag my body home?
Roadburner!

Christ, I've finally found the fucking light
I con-fucking-fess that you were right
Track Name: Universes crumble
We are stars
Floating 'round in the infinite black
And you see the light of some of our friends
That have already gone
Swept away
It's a glimpse
We are a second on the clock of time

Follow me into the void
That I once called my home
When it all went dark
And we flew between the giants and the dwarfs
Struck with awe when you realize
We're just a second on the clock of time

Yeah the sun will swallow
All of us into the black hole
This is your call
Get out before it's too late
This is your call
Open the door get out there
Track Name: Dashboard Jesus
When the road hits another crossroad
And I don't know which way to go
I ask help to my dashboard Jesus
Who decides at every turn
And the sand grinds between my teeth
With every bite I take
'Cause I ate the dust of everyone
Who passed me by

Is it really written in the stars
Who I will be?
'Cause they seem
So very far away to affect me

Three times in a row
I sat upon this throne
Headlight caught my eye
Oh what a way to die
Three times is a charm
What will the third time be?
Someone's funeral
Oh god I hope it will be me

When I look at my dashboard Jesus
He nods his holy head
I can't see far past my headlights
But he sees everything
When the road takes another U-turn
I give up free will
It's much easier to lay it in god's hands
To guide my steering wheel
Track Name: The Mammoth
Black rain is coming down
Pumping poison through the ground
The sun won't shine
For me no more
Gotta close the iron door
Black heart is beating still
Can you feel the solemn thrill
Colors seem so strange to me now
Well-adjusted to the dark

Trampling down
Beating me down
He's coming
You better beware
The mammoth is here
He's coming to wipe it clean
Trampling down
Beating me down
He's coming
You better beware
He's after you

Six signs are warning me
Seven soldiers raise their cup
Your doom is coming down the hill
Say a prayer and close your eyes
