Hailing from Kokkola in Finland, Take Me Down are a hard rock/metal band who released a demo earlier this year.
A nice bassy rock beat opens the demo, showcasing a rich sound that really hits hard with its riffs, good vocals & wicked guitar solo. Bye Bye My Darling is a firm start. It’s followed up with a pleasing melody & some softly sung vocals as Final Medicine shows the range that Take Me Down have. Especially when the beat increases bringing a heavier & very appealing sound. The guitar solo here is particularly great.
Wake Me Up continues the huge bass sound, a rumbling & dark effort, one that resonates deeply before Under One’s Thumb gets the body moving. All thanks to a grungy groove, hooks & another eye-opening guitar solo.
Take Me Down are absolute pros at delivering huge riffs & memorable moments as Waste of Space proves with a stunning pacey beat. A very impressive demo finishes up with one more slab of hard rock excitement. Devil May Care seals the deal on the quality of this release.
