Metal supergroup Down, comprised of singer Philip Anselmo (Pantera) and guitarists Pepper Keenan (Corrosion of Conformity) and Kirk Windstein (Crowbar), have begun working on their first new songs in nearly 10 years.

In a recent post on Facebook, Windstein shared a photo of himself and Keenan at Down’s rehearsal studio in Louisiana.

In the post, Windstein wrote, “So…we kinda wrote 2 Down songs today!!!”

Down, which also includes drummer Jimmy Bowar (Eyehategod) and bassist Pat Bruders (ex-Goatwhore), has not released any new music since the Down IV – Part Two EP, which dropped in May 2014.

This past October, Windstein spoke to Scott Penfold of Loaded Radio about the possibility of Down writing and recording new music.

Windstein, who also plays guitar and sings in Crowbar, said, “I talked to Phil a pretty good bit. Phil’s attitude is kind of just like, ‘Look, fellas, I’m doing what I’m doing [with Pantera]. I love it. We’re killing it.’ And boy, are they. We [Crowbar] had the pleasure of playing with Pantera in Poland in early June. It was unbelievable. I mean, I laughed, I cried. My emotion was something else, because I was very tight with [late Pantera guitarist] Dimebag. It’s real – what they’re doing is real.”

“I hope. To be honest, we talked about doing like a cover-song EP. But we threw around like a hundred songs and we can’t pick and choose any of them. So, to me, it’s easier to just go, ‘Hey, guys, let’s get in the f—ing room and just write some sh-t.’ Come out with six songs and do an EP. So I hope that that’s what happens,” he added.
