“We called ourselves Downer - maybe we jinxed ourselves from the get-go,” says guitarist and co-founder Aaron Silberman. The Orange County based four-piece’s Roadrunner debut is an eleven song tangle of emotion and gigantic riffmongery huge rock ambitions infused with hardcore intensity. From the appropriately-titled introductory burn of “Flex” to the last gasp of “Curbed”, Downer is a non-stop groove down a melodic and darkened drain.

“We get our work ethic from growing up in the Orange County hardcore/straight edge scene,” say vocalist John Scott. It’s always been a grassroots/do it yourself thing. I find that relying on someone else usually results in being let down.” That feeling is core to the longstanding partnership between
Silberman and Scott, both veterans of the late 80’s, early 90’s Orange County Hardcore scene - Scott with Headfirst and Silberman with Mission Impossible. Both spent their musical adolescence side by side with bands like Inside Out (who gave the world Rage Against the Machine frontman Zach De La Rocha) and The Offspring. “Our first gig as Downer was with The Offspring in a pizza parlor in Norco in front of about four people!” Aaron laughs.

    Listened to the album earlier on headphones while walking in the rain - not as gloomy as it sounds. Another great lost metal band from the late '90s/early '00s.

    What happened post Downer? Did the band members move on to other projects or give up on music altogether?

    remember hearing Last Time years way back and falling in love, and when I finally got their CD, i was surprised that it grew on me so much. it's still one of my favorite records to surprise people with.

    Downer sounds like a heavy metal version of The Offspring to me, but there still fucking awesome! Too bad Downer left after the first album, they coulda really went somewhere...
