Belgium’s stoner rock quartet Fire Down Below blends fuzzy desert riffs with 90’s grunge and heavy psych to create a unique sound that couples stoner/doom heaviness with melody and powerful vocal performances.
Formed in Ghent, Belgium, in 2015, Fire Down Below first stepped into the spotlight with their self-released debut album Viper Vixen Goddess Saint in 2016. The album quickly caught the attention of California-based label Ripple Music, home of some of the finest bands in the stoner/doom/heavy rock genre such as Wo Fat and Mothership. Ripple Music have since re-released VVGS and released sophomore album Hymn of the Cosmic Man.
Since 2016 Fire Down Below has played shows across Europe, sharing stages and festival bills with bands like Fu Manchu, Sleep, Monster Magnet, Acid King, Mothership, Naxatras and Stoned Jesus. In 2019, Fire Down Below played at Alcatraz Festival in Kortrijk and Desertfest Antwerp. They have been announced to take the stage at Desertfest London and Antwerp Metal Fest in 2020.
