Feeling a bit camera shy


Grow up in Windsor Ontario Canada and you grow up in Detroit Rock City. With just a mile of water separating the two cities, the influences run deep. LODOWN draws on these influences to create a hard rock “wall of sound” that has become the backbone of this groundbreaking band.

Living in the shadow of the US, LODOWN initially focused south, east and west, honing their live show and quickly selling out of debut ep “800x600”(2000) and full length follow up “Shadowbox Broadcast” (2003). The band comes equipped with a near legendary live show, and the loyal following who swear by the band come from all walks of life to experience what some critics have called “the saviour of live rock music”.

In 2003, LODOWN crossed paths with famed Canadian producer Darius Szczepaniak, who was to become the catalyst for a series of recording sessions that resulted in the birth of “Black Horse”. The beauty of this album lies in the eclectic nature of the music and gives the band an almost cult-like sensibility. Songs like “Dirty Heshan” which is driven by traditional heavy riffs, is placed alongside epic styled pieces like the title track “Black Horse”. It’s these contrasts and unique songwriting sensibilities that give the albums a very ominous and heavy feeling. There is definitely weight to this band.

Rock and roll can be dangerous again. There are new areas within the genre to be explored and celebrated. LODOWN is a band leading the way towards a new horizon in rock and roll. Believe in this band, they might just be the most important rock band to come a long in quite some time.
