DOWNSPIRIT Debut “Point of Origin”

The German/Swiss band, DOWNSPIRIT,  have offered up some footage of their recording session for their debut of “Point of Origin”.  They were touting something about combining blues and metal  and that’s just right up my alley.  I guess it’s that whole southern rock/metal thing that I became infatuated with back home in Texas.  So, off I went to the “tube” to check ‘em out and as my Momma used to say…” wonders never cease!”  These guys are pretty damn cool.  They’re actually able to combine the blues and the metal so well that it left me impressed.  You can give ‘em a listen yourself at this link:

Here’s some of what’s being said about this band…

“DOWNSPIRIT‘s main goal is to play live as much as possible – from the smallest club in your neighborhood to the biggest stadiums in the world. Whatever might cross their paths in the long-term future – this band is about to crank your stereos, rock your house and turn it all into one big rock party!

“Point of Origin” is not just an album with excellent songs on it, furthermore it is a sound experience that catches the attention of its listeners from the first note to the last beat! The melancholic feeling of blues music combined with the power of Heavy Metal riffs and strong melodies, a band including well known and talented musicians who came together to deliver quality sounding music with power and passion: THAT’S DOWNSPIRIT!”
