Diesel Down

From humble beginnings, as a way of passing time in 2005, DIESEL DOWN climbed to one of the hottest and most frequent live acts on the Stockholm live scene in 2007. Bassplayer Joakim Eriksson joined the band in 2008 and said he longed for some "bonerattling grooves". A self-titled, self-recorded, self-produced full length album was released on a small independent lable BTR in the last days of 2009 and an intense period of giging followed. By 2012 original drummer Joakim Lahger lost interest and left the band without a drummer. Without the possibility of giging, the band concentrated on recording once again and released four singles in 2013. Rock the nation, Sad to say, Fallin` and Sunrise. ..."no drummer, no problem. It'll take more than an empty drumstool to stop us, we'll just do it ourselves" they said about the situation. Drummer Mats Schelander joined the band in early 2014 and the guys are now working on writing and recording new material that has a distinct sound not quite like any other band on the swedish rock and metal scene. For those with a passion for pounding drums, screaming guitars and driving basslines topped with soaring vocals, DIESEL DOWN just might be that new favorite band you've been looking for. They are not like any other bands around, firmly rooted in rock history by looking to the future rather than the past ...stand back and Watch as others fall by the wayside..this is Rock for those who DON'T need hairgel and nailpolish to make a statement.
