I only know one song from 'Nola' whcih actually impressed me A LOT since this is a project of members from Fear Factory and Pantera, 2 bands I basically donīt care for. Down is thousand times better than these bands sounding like a more progressive and heavy Black Sabbath for the song I heard. I want to check out the rest of the album

pantera rules down isnt nu metal phil anselmo kicks ass zze u fuhkkkin poser

From: Luke Date: January 31, 2004 at 0:16
Thi is not a nu-metal band and Fear Factory have fuck all to do with Down. The Members are: Phillip Anselom (Pantera) - Vocals), Kirk Windstein (Crowbar) - Guitars, Rex Brown (Pantera/Crowbar) - Bass, Pepper Keenan (Corrosion Of Conformity) - Guitars, Jimmy Bowers (EyeHateGod) - Drums...

From: Rockhead Date: June 28, 2004 at 12:13
Stone The Crows-worth the admission price alone. Heavy Sabbath riffage!! Rocks like a mutha

From: Metalhead66 Date: November 12, 2004 at 13:17
Phil did kick ass on this...I guess he wasn't doing a lot of smack at the time.This is a killer record..the 2nd one is okay,but I liked this a whole lot Better..Much,Much better than SuperCrap Bitchin'more. 9/10.

What this album does best is create an atmosphere: like a steamy summer evening in the south, too hot to move, with air you could cut with a knife. Phil Anselmo is mostly a distraction here, as Kirk and Pepper are the main attractions. The intro to "Eyes of the South" is the very best thing here.

From: Fizz Date: April 6, 2005 at 16:01
The Fizz Picks: "Eyes of the South," "Pillars of Eternity," "Stone the Crow," the weird experiment of "jail" and "Bury Me In Smoke" (unlisted here).

Amazingly, I couldn't get into this disc at first. I guess I wanted it to be things that it isn't. I finally got out of the way and let it take me where it's headed, and NOLA has become one of my all-time favorite albums of any genre. Often slow and brooding, but never shoegazing or dreary, grooves galore, melodies hidden all over the place. It's like Crowbar's tune-low-play-slow aesthetic jazzed up with C.O.C.'s latter-day bluesy swagger, topped off with Phil Anselmo's emotive voice. It's just plain powerful stuff all around. Lots of bands have tried to imitate the sound, including Down themselves, but NOLA is the definite southern/stoner/sudge-metal disc. Every song is a highlight, but fo rme, the album really picks up steam in its second half. You go from the bluesy lurch of "Eyes Of The South" to the trippy, ethereal "Jail," to the sledgehammer of "Losing All," to the lighter melodies of "Stone The Crow" and on through the nasty crawl of 'Bury Me In Smoke." Whew! What an album!
