States vocalist Philip Anselmo, “Down gives me the platform to be poetic and paint imagery with lyrics. That’s the approach I took. They complement the music and create an ominous feeling. Ultimately, when people consume the words, it’s always their interpretation that matters. I could be image-conscious though when I wrote. It’s not so gut level or street. The darker shit is some of my favorite.”
